Re: Caleb or Cavan ? Vote please :)

You are already having to let folks know how to pronounce Cavan ~If you love the name just be prepared to keep it up

I have a daughter named .....I love the name..it fits her.We live in the South and we will FOREVER have to tell people how to pronounce it when they first meet her. That said , usually once people know how to pronounce it they don't forget it and she gets comments all the time on how pretty her name is~

Cavan ALL the way. I think its so neat! Calvin is like one of my FAVE boy names, so I like things that are close-ish to it.

I don't like common names at all...being a Jennifer in the 80's. My kids will both have to sound their names out to everyone...and our last name too, but thats totally worth it for a unique name.

FWIW, I wouldn't try to pronounce it like Raven because it has an "a" second.

Cavan! I think it's adorable! It probably helps that my favorite boy name of all time is Gavin.

Cavan sounds like "Caveman" to me. Just my two cents.

But I am all about the uber traditional names.
