If you're looking for a fresh take on a traditional name, consider Jayvon, a masculine name of Hebrew origin that means "Ionian," referring to one of the major tribes of Ancient Greece. It is a variation of the Biblical name Javan, one of Noah's grandsons who lived on the Mediterranean coast and is considered an ancestor of the Greeks. With connotations of tradition, heritage, and religion, it is an excellent option if you're looking for a name that celebrates baby's spirituality. Famous namesakes include American professional basketball player Jayvon Graves and actor Javon Walton, giving the name a distinctly modern edge.
