Absolutely beautiful! A gorgeous and exquisite name!

I would hesitate before giving a boy a name synonomous with the ideal of male beauty. Might be a lot to live up to.

Hard name to carry around. Imagine Adonis with a serious acne problem.

I do not like this name. It sounds odd to me. I would never choose to name my child Adonis.

I love Adonis, pronounced "ah-Do-nis", "Addie" for short.

The Adonis I know pronounces it a-do-NEES. He's 1/2 Arabic.

You know what comes up when you search "Adonis" on google images? Greek statues and gay porn. Imagine the teasing!

(If you're going to give birth to an immortal, attractive man in the prime of his life, this is the perfect name. If you think you might be carrying a normal human being, I'd look for something with less of a reputation to live up to.)

I don't think it really matters what your soon will turn out looking like. Once the other kids find out the history of this name, they'll tease the poor thing relentlessly. Of course, if the boy happens to be a bit awkward, he'll be going through hell in school. Even I would laugh at someone having this over-the-top name.

An utterly pretentious name.

This name sounds ridiculous on a real person. It makes me think of arrogant pretty boys. It's also too heavily attached to the Greek myth. I wouldn't recommend it.

I don't like it. It's pretentious as hell. I know a boy named this, and he is probably the most stuck up, idiotic, self-absorbed, vain, all-around vile person I have ever met. The name is a self-fulfilling prophecy: name your kid after a god, and the kid will grow up to be either an unattractive boor, or a handsome, but shallow, boor.

I love this name, I could name my kid this. This reflects my desire for my kid to be badass and attractive. I am shallow... and righteous.

While I do think that Adonis is a very handsome-sounding name, I think that it would be heavy-handed to name your child a word that its universally associated with Beauty (capital-B). One could refer to a handsome male as an Adonis, and his name could be Fred for all it matters. Better to let him earn this term on his own.

Adonia could be a feminine version of this name.

I do like the sound of this name! Does it really matter if your kid isn't super beautiful? Maybe they will grow into a handsome man (ugly kids usually do) or maybe they will be beautiful on the inside. If you like it use it.

Pretentious and a lot to live up to. If you really must use this name (if you love it so much) having it be the middle name would be "safer" and less pretentious.
