Devon is both a boy and girl name, but I feel that the boy name should be the Devon because than he has a ring in his name to give his future wife to pass on his family name, and the girl should be Devin, because in the bible the garden of Eden is guarded by two flaming swords, where the V is the swords and the I is the tree in the Garden of Eden, because girls need to be more protected.

I found it in a book of Scottish & Irish baby names & it was said to mean "poet savant". I chose the variant Devan (pronounced De-Ven) for my son's name. I didn't know anyone named that, in any variety, at the time. Now it's popular as a unisex name, but  here in the U.S., I most often see the spelling I chose as a girl's name. Some refer to him as Dev, but I usually shorten it to Van as that was my grandfather's nickname (from his last name of VanGorder).

My mom always told me that my name means peaceful in gaelic. I'm a girl but I see devon or devin more commonly used as a boy's name.

This is sometimes given to both boys and girls (more often girls) in North America, though it is very rare otherwise. It is a place name, and like a lot of place names it became a surname before being sometimes used as a first name.

Originally the surname Devon probably indicated that the bearer came from the county of Devon in south-west England. The county name itself derives from the name of an ancient British tribe, the Dumnonii. It probably means "Worshippers of the god Dumnonos." The name Dumnonos has a connection with the meaning "deep" (possibly because the Dumnonii were valley people.)

As a girl's name, Devon is sometimes spelled Devonne; in that case it is pronounced de-VON.
