Comments for ASLAN:

I love this name. It's strong and short, but still uncommon.

I like this name, but I'd never use it because Aslan from Chronicles of Narnia represents Jesus Christ, and because of that the name seems sacred to me.

I agree with Pippin. (Plus, if I actually called my child Aslan he would be teased ENDLESSLY).

I think it's really cool that Aslan means 'lion'! It is very fitting, then, that C. S. Lewis used the name for his character. Aslan the Lion is one of my favorite characters in all of literature. (I think that might be because he represents Jesus Christ. =))

Aslan is a pretty common Turkish surname. In Turkey they wouldn't automatically think of Jesus Christ when hearing 'Aslan' as Turkey is a Muslim country and I don't think Narnia was a big thing there.

Anyway, Aslan can also be spelt Arslan.

I knew a little girl once named Aslan. Not entirely sure what her parents were thinking. Sure, there are worse associations to have, but a girl with a guy's name? Really?

Aslan is also used in Chechnya (a traditionally Islamic country) as a first name for men. Since Chechnya is forced to follow the Russian naming system, it is also found as a middle name in the form of a patronymic, namely Aslanovich.

A well-known bearer of this name is the late Aslan Maskhadov, a former president of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria.

This was my mother's maiden name. I think Aslan and U/Osama make much better alternatives to the more common Leo. Although, I guess in America, naming your child Osama wouldn't be the best idea...

A variant of Aslan is Arslan which is the Old Turkic spelling of the word/name.

The name Aslan is also used in Georgia, where it is a bit uncommon.

In Georgian, Aslan is written as: ასლან.
