Yes, there is a Heaven on the SSA list of top 1000 baby names

White, and in the minority. (Washington Post, July 30, 2018)
In a country where whites will lose majority status in about a quarter-century, and where research suggests that demographic anxiety is contributing to many of the social fissures polarizing the United States, from immigration policy to welfare reform to the election of President Trump, the story of the coming decades will be, to some degree, the story of how white people adapt to a changing country. It will be the story of people like Heaven Engle and Venson Heim, both of whom were beginning careers on the bottom rung of an industry remade by Latinos, whose population growth is fueling that of America, and were now, in unusually intense circumstances, coming to understand what it means to be outnumbered.

Not released as a single, "Heaven Is In Your Mind" first appeared on Traffic's debut album, "Mr. Fantasy", which entered the Billboard Top Albums chart for the week ending April 22, 1968.  During its 22-week run, it peaked at #88.
