Alastair is a nice name for a boy. It sounds smart and handsome. With the popularity of Alexander I am surprised this name isn't used more.

I really like this name, I also like it spelled Aleister, like the 19th century British occultist and writer, Aleister Crowley (his real name was actually Edward Alexander Crowley).

The name does have a certain old-fashioned charm to it, and it could be quite a refreshing middle name. At least it isn't too boyish.

I like it, but I don't know how strong the Aleister Crowley association is, and it could freak people out if they thought the parents of a son with this name were devout followers of him.

Whenever I hear this name, I think more of Alastair Moody from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. It sounds like a magical name.

Love this name and prefer this spelling. We named our son Alastair almost six years ago and still get lots of compliments on his name.

Pronounced al-a-stair? That doesn't sound like a name to me. Yuck.
