Other Origin(s):French, Welsh
Harv is a boy's name of Old English, French, and Welsh origin. It's rooted in Harvey and combines the Breton words hoiarn, meaning "iron," and viu, meaning "blazing." Put them together, and you have a "battle-worthy" name to bring out baby's fiery side! Harvey has a direct line to Saint Hervé of Brittany, a celebrated monk known for curing animals. Born blind, the saint was guided by his loyal companion, a domesticated wolf. With a name like Harv, your darling will face each new obstacle with courage, never afraid to lean on their pals for help.
