Trevor is a boy’s name of Welsh origin. Spelled Trefor in Welsh, Trevor means “large settlement.” It is a habitational name, meaning that it was given to people to describe the place where they lived. In Welsh, tre(f) means “homestead” or “settlement,” while fawr means “large,” in reference to people who lived in big settlements in Wales.
