Name Opinion

What do you think of the name Tarran for a boy? We are thinking of Tarran Alexander. DH wants to go back to his roots for the names, and this is the only one that seems somewhat doable for me.

  • staciandababy - Tyler Ryan. That made me smile. My husband's name is Ryan Tyler. He says absolutely no to a child being named after him. I tried :(.

  • My husband's only younger brother married a girl named Tarryn......she's a real bitch.

    No offense meant, but she's who I immediately thought of when I saw Tarran.
