Find: ignore directory completely

Hello,

I know find can be prevented from recursing into directories with something like the following...

Code:
find . -name .svn -prune -a type d

But how can I completely prevent directories of a certain name (.svn) from being displayed at all, the top level and the children?

I really appreciate any help you can give me.

Thanks.
