Kevin: Boys Baby Name Meaning

Kevin Baby Name

The name Kevin means ‘well-born’ or ‘gentle, handsome child’.

Kevin is the anglicized form of the Irish masculine name ‘Caoimhín’, from the Gaelic elements ‘caomh’ meaning ‘beautiful, gentle’ and ‘ghín” meaning ‘born’.

Caoimhín has been a long-standing favorite boy’s name in Ireland due to the 6th century saint Caoimhín (anglicized to St. Kevin of Glendalough) who lived as a hermit and represents one of the so-called Green Martyrs of Ireland – men who opted out of society to live a solitary existence, subjecting themselves to harsh environments, where they alone could focus on their scripture studies and consecrate themselves wholly to God.

Celtic Christians have a long tradition of adopting pious names for their children, so it’s no surprise that Caoimhín/Kevin has remained in circulation for so long.

Today the name Kevin remains a favorite among the Irish – but it also does quite well outside of the Emerald Isle’s borders. 

Famous people who share the name Kevin:

Kevin Jonas (musician); Kevin Johnson (basketball player/politician); Kevin Hart (actor, comedian); Kevin McHale (basketball player); Kevin Nealon (comic/actor).
