Meaning: Big village; industrious
Origin: Welsh; Irish
Alternate spellings: Trev
Trevor has Welsh roots meaning “big village” and Irish roots meaning “industrious.” Here’s to hoping that the industrious part leads him to be the kind of kid who will clean his room.
Trevor sounds like a hip, modern name, but it made the U.S. top 1,000 for the first time back in 1956. The reason it sounds contemporary may be because it ranked in the top 100 from 1986 through 2003. It has dropped several slots since then. Trevor is still a cool-kid name and is a good style match for names like Ryan, Logan, and Reece.
