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.

  • It's not bad. I might spell it differently. Maybe Terren. Tarran for some reason reminds me of Tarzan.

  • Also, I went to school with a girl named Taryn. I like that spelling, but it is pretty girly.

  • I have known too many girl Taryn so it seems girly. Might be ok as a nickname for Terrence?

  • Honestly, I'm not a fan. It's by far not the worst I've heard of but, not something I'd ever use.
