I don't as we visit Devon often so to me it would be like calling a child Dorset or London...

It's ok. I know someone with middle name Devon and I know a boy called Devon x

The old bloke out of Knight Rider.

I like it but would think it was a boy's name.

I knew a girl called Devon when I was little. I like it. She had a very normal classic middle name which worked well.

It would make me think of Devon Sawa ... who sadly hasn't aged all that well, he was so cute in the 90s

It is also used in parts of Australia as a name for processed deli meat. Not sure what you call it in the UK - luncheon meat?

I love it especially as a girls name.

Devon is a deli meat in Australia. Commonly put on white bread with tomato sauce and given to kids.

Rancid stuff.

So no, I don't like it.

I'd think it was a boy's name
