Meaning:Divine; God
With a name that literally means “god,” this little boy is born to be divine. Dev is a boy’s name of Sanskrit origin with a truly heavenly meaning. While this may seem to some like a lot of pressure to put on baby, Dev can use his name as a reminder that he has the power to steer and change his own life. If he chooses to follow a faith, then maybe his title can also be a daily reminder of his connection to it. Slumdog Millionaire’s Dev Patel may have brought the name to Hollywood, but there’s no doubt that your little Dev can take it even further.
