    Pronunication of Kevin vs Kelvin

    Hi, everybody, I am new here, nice to meet you all!

    I would like to ask for the difference between the pronunciation the names Kevin and Kelvin, is it only with the 'l' sound?

    Many thanks.

    Regards

    Yes. "Kelvin" has a definite "L" sound (KELL-vin), while "Kevin" doesn't ("KEH-vin)."

    Yes, the difference is simply the "l". Both have a lax /E/.
