Personal experiences with the name Haven: | Edit

My son's name; I was sad when I learned that the name is now being used for girls. Another great boys' name taken over!

We know a boy named Haven.

Keep it for the boys!

We decided on this name if we had a girl a few years before our daughter was born. I actually had never heard of that name before, and now almost 17 years later I do hear it used for boys and girls. I don't think it should matter who uses it. A boy or girl. To me, it sounded angelic.
