Gavin

white falcon; little falcon
ORIGIN: Welsh
Gavin is the Scottish version of the name Gawain, one of the knights of King Arthur’s Round Table, but early Welsh literature shows the roots of the name to be even older than that. Rockers Gavin DeGraw and Gavin Rossdale keep the cool quotient high, sending the name into the top 100 for boys in 2000—and hit No. 30 on the Social Security Administration popularity charts in 2008. Its ending makes it similar to Kevin and Melvin.
