Owen. Thoughts please??

I’ve always liked this name so I’m just curious as to what your opinions are :slight_smile:

Loving [name]Owen[/name] lately! I have recently gotten into the TV show [name]Nikita[/name], and I love the [name]Owen[/name] in that, but even before that, [name]Owen[/name] was starting to creep up on me. I used to have [name]Owen[/name] as a MN on my list ([name]Daniel[/name] [name]Owen[/name]), and I still think it’s super handsome. [name]Nikita[/name] just sort of cemented it. :slight_smile: I’m still looking for the perfect spot for it–I’ve been considering [name]Charles[/name] [name]Owen[/name] and [name]Samuel[/name] [name]Owen[/name], but I’m not sure either will stick. I would love to meet a little [name]Owen[/name]. :slight_smile:

I really like the name [name]Owen[/name]- it is a good choice.

I really like this name! except my boyfriend ruined it for me cause when I told him I liked it he kept saying “Oh and…(enter something random, stupid, and boyish” That’s what he thinks the name [name]Owen[/name] sounds like when said aloud. sigh boys…

I really like it, but has become very popular.

I’ve liked [name]Owen[/name] for a long time. It feels like the name of a sweet little boy with an old soul to me.

I’ve gone back and forth between like and love with this name, but I think in the end it has everything but quirk. It is sweet in its simplicity, well-known but not uber-popular. I see a sweet, rascally little boy, and a thoughtful, intelligent man. But it is a bit on the tame side, so for my son we spiced it up with [name]Maddox[/name] in the middle. We love it :slight_smile:

I definitely like it. It’s simple and straightforward but doesn’t feel dated or trendy. It’s easy to spell and pronounce. The meaning isn’t unpleasant and it has a nice sound. I could never use it because of my surname, but I think it’s a fantastic name.

It is a good solid name.

  • likeable
  • easy to say
  • easy to spell
  • classic
  • ages well
  • has history
  • has a good meaning
  • has a cute nickname “O”

That being said, I don’t care for it at all. It super ridiculously popular where I live. It went from being super uncommon to being a top 5 name here. It seems trendy and lost all of its appeal for me. My co-worker has a son named Owen and there was always at least 2-3 other Owens in his class. Once you throw in Cowens and Cohens, which are also super popular here, they are all start to sound tired and boring.

I try to follow the birth announcements for my area, and for a couple of years now it has been one of the most commonly used names, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down at all.

[name]Owen[/name]'s a great name. I love its simplicity.

I am biased, but I love the name. I think it’s strong and handsome, yet very adorable on a little boy.

I really like [name]Owen[/name], it’s one of my favorite boys names. We have [name]Owen[/name] [name]Zachary[/name] on our list.
