    Hah! Steven is my kid Brother’s name! He’s always wished our folks had gone with the Stephen spelling, it’s more elegant, he says. But I like the name. 🙂 It’s got a friendly vibe. Sadly, my brother has been “Steve” for so long, if you call “Steven!” out, he doesn’t turn around. I think about possibly using it in the middle, for him but he keeps saying “no, don’t”. So I don’t know about for me. But I think Stephen is lovely (and Stefan). but Steve is kind of bland. I should know, he tells me all the time! 🙂

    MMM Unfortunately a lot of the time Steven will get Steve.. 😦 Sometimes nicknames are sad, as they can ruin a lot of very nice names.
