A very good, strong name. I think I'll name my son that, when or if I have one.

I have to say, despite this name's negative connotations (thanks to several sources, not least The Omen, it conjuers up images of evil), I still like it. Is that disturbing?

I have always been disappointed by the negative images and feelings that "The Omen" has applied to this name. I have a very good friend named Damien, and I hate it when people look at him weird and ask him if he's the son of Satan. I think this is a very nice name, and it's a shame that people feel like they have to hate it because of its use in a silly horror movie.

This is my favorite spelling of my favorite name! :)

Damian is not the name of the devil, Lucifer is the name of the devil. The name Damian was just used as a name in a horror flick, just like the name Jason was but that never stopped the usage of the name Jason. I read somewhere that St. Damian was the patron saint of physicians.

I really love this name despite most negative impressions. My pastor is named Damian, although I prefer the Damien spelling.

I prefer this spelling over 'Damian', but I guess it doesn't matter as they both sound so great.

What a charming name for a boy! And such an interesting meaning, "to tame or subdue" I like how this name rolls.

Damien Echols (born Michael Wayne Hutcheson) is one of the West Memphis Three, who were convicted in 1994 of having murdered three little boys in West Memphis, Arkansas. Many people think they were falsely convicted and they're now out of prison after having entered Alford please in 2011. Although Damien Echols changed his first name to Damien in honor of Father Damien, the missionary priest, part of the mythology that sprung up around the case was that he'd changed his name to Damien in honor of the Antichrist from the "Omen" movies, and his name change was seen as an indication that he was a Satan-worshipper fully capable of murder. Something to think about for people considering naming their sons Damien.
