Origin:British
Meaning:Harbor, safe place
Haven is a place or a feeling that makes you feel safe and comfortable. It is also a gender-neutral given name that may appeal to a parent seeking a name with comforting connotations. Derived from the Old English “haefen,” Haven points to a safe harbor or sanctuary, where one can be themselves and feel loved. So, it's a fitting choice for your precious little bundle considering the unconditional love they are set to receive! Actor and entrepreneur Jessica Alba chose it for her daughter in 2011, and though it’s traditionally a girl’s name, it is certainly a safe choice for boys, too.
