Meaning:dark; brown-haired chieftain
Give baby a name that will not only connect them to their heritage, but also help them lead with dignity! A boy’s name of Irish and Gaelic origin, Donavon means “dark” or “brown-haired chieftain.” A respelling of Donovan, this fresh take feels somewhat Avant-Garde—which fittingly translates to “ahead of the troops.” Not only that, but this name has some musical connections in the form of singers Donovan and Donavon Frankenreiter, who have made names for themselves with their original styles. So, with a name like Donavon, your little leader is sure to pave the way in whichever field they choose!
