Harvey: baby boy name meaning and popularity


Derived from the Breton name Haerviu and meaning “battle-worthy,” this name has recently been associated with two suck-ass disasters: Hurricane Harvey and the skeezy sexual harassment escapades of producer Harvey Weinstein. It’s a shame when bad associations happen to a decent name.



Famous people named Harvey:

Actors Harvey Keitel, Harvey Korman, and Harvey Fierstein; politician and LGBTQ activist Harvey Milk; TV producer Harvey Levin; founder of Firestone Tires, Harvey Firestone.

Fun fact:

“Harvey Beaks” is the name of a cartoon series on Nickelodeon.
