- Comments and insights on the name Haven: | Edit
I don't particularly like it, but to me it has a very feminine sound. I picture a guy named Haven being physically weak. Can you imagine him trying to make something of himself in a male-dominated field, such as business? Poor guy. Give your son a strong name!
- 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.
