Baby Name of the Week: Levi

I had never heard of the name Levi until a few years ago when I met a man with the name, and since then I've met lots of toddler and baby boys with it. I'm behind the times because there are already over 1,000 moms on CafeMom who have named their sons Levi, which is Hebrew for "joined." That's very nice when you think about it because your child joins you and the father together.

The name Levi ranked 117th on the Social Security Administration's top 1,000 boys names in 2008, and it ranks 91st of 100 on the Baby Name Finder.

Famous Levis include: Levi Strauss (founder of the jeans) and Levi Johnston (ex of Bristol Palin and father of Tripp).

It can be spelled Levi or Levy and it's usually pronounced Lee-vie, although some people say Leh-vee.

What do you think of the name?
