Meaning:Mountain man
Sleven is a masculine Irish name with roots in Gaelic that retains the meaning of "mountain man." Irish myths tell of 900-year-old swans and hurling-playing dogs but, as yet, nothing about hypothetical mountain men. Hearing someone refer to their friend as "a mountain of a man" is common throughout Ireland and is always seen as a positive. Whether it's quantifying stature, knowledge, kindness, or all three, baby Sleven will be your little mountain man forever.
