would it be wrong to name a caucasion boy aryan?

jw dh and i had this discussion. i said no bc i associated the name with negative things and then arian foster became famous and he is african american. and i really like the name.

so if i ever have another boy this may be his name.

thoughts....

I would never do that to my child, personally.  Whether you are trying to break boundaries or just like the name, it has negative connotations that will follow that boy for the rest of his life.  I'm specifically referring the the spelling with a 'y'.

oh well i wouldnt be opposed to spelling it with an i. i just had never seen it spelled that way until arian foster came around

I think they name has a nice sound to it too... but I would never use it because of the association.

There are similar sounding names...

Darian

Ariston

Avian

Tarian

I think it's a nice name, but I don't know about naming my kid that.
