If you like the name Devin, you’re set whether you give birth to a boy or girl: It’s unisex (though in the US, it’s usually given to boys). Derived from the Irish “dámh,” Devin means "bard" or "poet." It was a favorite in the 1990s for parents with and without Irish roots. If you don’t like the spelling, there are plenty of others to choose from, including Devon, Devyn and Devan. Two members of the “in” crowd: Devin Harris, point guard for the Dallas Mavericks, and Devin Hester, the wide receiver who most recently played for the Seattle Seahawks. Maybe baby will follow in these sporty shoes?
