Kevin

Kevin is a modern-day classic. From the Wonder Years‘ Kevin Arnold, to six-degrees of Kevin Bacon, to teen heartthrob Kevin Jonas, Kevin has become almost as ubiquitous a name as good ol’ John. The name first gained recognition in the seventh century after Saint Kevin was made one of the patron saints of Dublin. It’s been an extremely popular name for boys in the U.S. for the past 50 years.
