Hervé


Hervé

Hervé is a French given name of Germanic origin. In English it is sometimes rendered Harvey or Hervey. It is derived from a Frankish name that appears in Latin sources of the eighth century as "Charivius". A later Latin form is "Herveus". This form may be derived from the Breton language: Hoarvei, Huva, or Houarniaule.
