Which spelling would you use and is it about due a revival? Dh likes this a lot.

Stephen is the irish catholic in me's first choice but I believe Steven is the more popular, I like both.

I don't think it matters. They're both established spellings. Also Steve is always spely Steve.

I don't like the name but I think Stephen looks much nicer.

Stephen seems somehow a bit classier than Steven to me... like the Sean/Shaun thing.

Stephen has a much nicer "look" to it. Stephen Fry, for example, or Stephen Hawking, Stephen King
