Hevein is a protein found in latex, though Leif Hedström claims he had absolutely no knowledge of that when he came up with the name of the band. Leif Hedström's story on the other hand goes as follows: "The guitarist once heard a song, covered by Blackstar "The Girl That Lived On Heaven Hill". Hereupon, the words "Heaven Hill" were changed into "Heven Hill" and were altered again until the final band name "Hevein" was born. Hevein is also Finnish word for "the heaviest"."
