Calvin (given name) Name list

Calvin is a masculine given name. It has been especially popular among American Protestants, who may be baptized as John Calvin to honor the religious leader, although in the judgement of the Oxford Dictionary of First Names, the modern given name "owes its popularity as much to the New York fashion designer Calvin Klein [b. 1942] as to the theologian". In the United States, the name had a short burst of popularity in the mid-to-late 1920s, due to president Calvin Coolidge and has remained of limited but more or less constant popularity since.
