i saw the girls name aven on another parenting message board i frequent, but can’t find any information on it! i don’t think its a made-up name, but i guess i could be wrong. so, does anyone know anything about the name? origin? meaning?

“Aven” is an extremely rare name in the U.S., and used more as a boy’s name than a girl’s name. In the year 2000, the U.S. Social Security Administration received a total of 16 baby boy registrations for “Aven.” There were only 6 baby girls named “Aven” in that same year.

I would say that “Aven” is most likely an alternate rendering of “[name]Evan[/name].”
