I voted for Caleb for 2 reasons...
1) It was on our list so obviously I like it
2) I would pronounce Cavan like Raven... so I'd think you might have to always correct how people pronounce it...

And how to spell it. JMO, but I like names that are easier to spell/pronounce, for simplicity's sake. The child doesn't grow up having to correct teachers, etc.
And I've also always liked Caleb.

I chose Cavan. Being a school teacher I tend to like unique names. When there are 2 or 3 kids with the same name in one class it can get annoying. Caleb is much more common. I hear it a lot....

I choose Cavan b/c it is closest to my ds's name, Kavin, but pronounced a bit differently
