Today's name: Harvey
Potential nicknames: Harv, Harry
Origin: Old English, meaning "eager for battle; strong and worthy," derived from the Old Breton Aeruiu or Haerviu. It is the French variant of Herve, and a Norman name revived in the 19th century.
Popularity: Harvey last ranked on the SSA chart in 1997, when it was #922. There were 184 baby boys named Harvey in 2010 in the U.S., and then in 2011 it came back at #862, which I have a feeling is all because of the new Batman movies.
Fun fact: (1) Harvey Dent was a character also known as Two Face in the Batman comics, and although he is know as a villain, his great personality before his "change" is showcased in the new movies. The Harvey award is given for achievement in comic books. (2) Harvey was also a character from "Sabrina the Teenage Witch." (3) "The Harvey Girls" was a musical film staring Judy Garland, written by Samuel Hopkins. (4) "Harvey" was a Pulitzer Prize winning play by Mary Chase.
