Davaney I like that spelling the best.

Davaney won’t be pronounced the way you like and looks like a typo for Delaney. I like the name though and like that it means divine It can also be spelled Devanee and is pronounced the same as Davanee.

Do you know what it means?

Devani or Devanee Ithink if you spell it with an e it will help people put the accent on the right syllable.

THIS IS MY BABY NAME TOO! HAHA! SEEMS LIKE A LOT OF US, BUT THERE ARE REALLY SO FEW!

I PLAN TO SPELL IT DAYVINEE, DAYVANEE, DAYVENEE, DAYVENIE, DAYVINIE, OR DAYVANIE... I REALLY LIKE HAVING THE WORD ’DAY’ IN IT... IT SEEMS SO BRIGHT AND CHEERY THAT WAY! (PERSONAL OPINION, I KNOW!) BUT I LIKE ALL THE OTHER IDEAS I’VE SEEN HERE TOO! GOOD LUCK AND BEST WISHES TO ALL THE DAVIE MAMA’S HERE! ;)

We have 2 girls so far RaeAnna and MacKenna...Rae and Mac...we are using Dayvanie for our next baby, if it is a girl and we are hoping her name wont get shortened to Dayv (Dave). We also heard it on the Notebook and my Hubby and I love watching that Movie. Its kind of fitting since my name "Chelsea" was taken off a movie "on Golden Pond" that my parents watched on their first date.

I named my daughter davanee like so many others heard it on the note book and fell in love however she gets it pronounced davonee alot that’s the only downside to spelling it this way

i saw this movie & heard the grandaughters name & loved it sooo much that i named my daughter after it- i spelled her name dayvyni & my moms name is diane so i named her middle name dyhann- two very unique spelled names :) when asked where i got her name from, no one remembers hearing the little girls name in the notebook-

I am seriously considering the same name I have a Kitalynn (Kite-a-lynn) girl, Hudsen girl, and Alaric (alarkic) boy I love unique names and I am hoping to have another girl. I am thinking Davanee Violet after the notebook and my grandma. I am trying to figure out differnt ways to spell it

My daughter’s name is Davinee also from the movie. Mu husband and I watched it for the 100th time and as I’m bawling my eyes out at the end I wanted to see the credits to see how they spelled the name. We found that if we changed the ”a” to an ”i” it would be our names put together. DAVId and courtNEE.....not even a week later we found out we were expecting. Davinee is now 4 1/2.

I love that name, and the notebook is my favorite movie of all time!!! but I didn’t noticed the little girl’s name in the movie until one restless night I decided to watch it "again".. I was about 6 months pregnant, and I just loved it.. obviously I could not figured out the spelling, since she was prematured, I made it up to be DEYVANNIE. My baby girl is now 5 and she looooooves when I watch the movie, she makes me repeat the part when the little girl’s name is called.. soo cute.

I named my girl Deviney. My family was bugging me about davanee becoming dave... So I changed it a little :)
posted by Devineys mommy :: 2 years ago | report
I loved the name so much, I gave it to my daughter as a middle name. Her daddy’s name is David, so we spelled it Daveny. Perfection in my opinion! <3

I have wanted to use this beautiful name for years, if and when I’m blessed with a nother daughter her name will be spelled Dèvine Rose, but will be pronounced dayvinny.

I named my daughter who is almost 7 dayvanee Layne ... I loved the name from the first time watching the notebook ... I spell it different then they spell it in the movie so it is pronoticed (day-va-née )

The actual spelling of the name from the movie is Davanee. Can you spell it other ways... Of course but that is the spelling if you look up the information from the movie. My daughter Davanee is almost 11. Named from the movie.

Saw up above someone said the meaning was Dark-haired, but that is actually for Devony (Like Devon). If it is spelled Daveney, it is a place name for a castle in Flanders. That is the only meaning I have seen for this pronunciation, so I suppose the rest could just be considered variants.

Is Davanee a southern name?? Ever since I heard it from the Notebook I thought it was southern since their family is pretty southern, but I think if I were to have heard it somewhere else i probably wouldn't like it, since I really only like southern names for kids.
