Kevin is the anglicized version of the Irish name Caoimhín. Saint Kevin in 6th-century Ireland is the first time we hear the name. He was a fascinating person. The name Kevin rose to prominence in the early 20th century. There are currently 1,531,990 other Kevins residing somewhere in the USA.
In Gaelic, Kevin means, "Handsome (By Birth)" & "Little Gentle One". Based on numerology value 7, Kevin is analytical, understanding, knowledgeable, studious, independent, fearless, investigative, proof oriented, practical Spiritual, intelligent, reserved, mysterious, & intuitive.
Famous fictional Kevins include Kevin McCallister (Home Alone), Kevin Malone (the Office), Kevin Swanson (Family Guy), Kevin Ball (Shameless), Kevin Arnold (The Wonder Years) Kevin Finn (Tron), Kevin Pickford (Dazed and Confused), Kevin Myers (American Pie), Kevin O'Donnell (Coyote Ugly), and Kevin Thompson (Daria).
First being noted in 618 AD, the name was rarely given until the mid-20th century. In 1949 it was in the top 100 baby names and gained popularity until it peaked at no. 11 in 1963(U.S.). It was popular until it sharply dropped in the mid-aughts.
Some suggested activities include: hug a Kevin, kiss a Kevin, write a poem for a Kevin, write a song for a Kevin, make art for a Kevin (be sure to share with us if you do any of these three!), cook a meal for a Kevin, be present/listen/hold space for a Kevin.

A little background on this project...
The butterfly you see here was special to an amazing Kevin. #NotAllKevins are amazing in the same way. He was one of the special ones. While most of us know at least one Kevin, this site's creation was inspired by the desire to share the music, art, & love left behind by an amazing Kevin from Illinois. His passion for art & music was insatiable and his memory & attention to the tiniest details of a song, piece, or performance were hard to miss & admire. After his passing we became aware of National Kevin Day and the lack of an actual site. This site is dedicated to Kevin J. & all the Kevins we can't hug on this earth anymore.
