Personal Impression
Darian has been my name every since 1973. I didn't like it at first but it's grown on me. I have kids but I wouldn't name my kids after me because I didn't like that name.

The name Darian was given to 263 boys born in the US in 2016.

I am a female Darian, and I like my name! People sometimes tell me I have a strong name when I say my full name, but I don't mind, it reflects my personality well I think. I also like that no one knows my gender when reading my resume. My mom named me after the Gaelic meaning (she is Irish American), small yet mighty, and let me tell you, I am a very short spitfire! Also, I was born in '94, and I suspect that my mom got the name from that movie the last boy scout haha. Notice the spike in popularity around 1992 on the chart? Yeah... that movie came out in 1991.

I named my son this name and I LOVE it... BUT, I had a girl before I had him and Darian was the name I chose for her. I had first heard it used as a girl's name in the movie "Beautiful Girls" and fell in love with it. I had never even heard it before, so I had no previous bias toward it. My husband, on the other hand, actually knew a guy named Darian, so he fought against me naming our daughter this (we ended up naming her Jaydan). SO... when I had another child, and we knew he was a boy, there was no other name he was getting but Darian. Lol, I still don't know the meaning and original (true) origin of the name, but I do lean toward it being a derivative of Darius.

Darian is the Welsh word for shield or crest.

I love this name but only for a BOY.

I personally like this name because it's my name. I am a girl and I know 3 other girls my age that have this name as well (early 20's). I don't know how it's "supposed" to be pronounced for a girl but when you say my name it sounds like DARE-ian even though it's spelled Darian.

You go GIRL!

This is definitely a males name. It's masculine and screams boy.
What is it doing under 'unisex'?
Fine name, but not for a girl.

I think it derives from Darius, the same way Julian derives from Julius.

I think it sounds pretty cool, but it's made up so I probably wouldn't use it.

Pronounced DAHR-yahn.

DAHR-yahn would most likely be a Slavic pronunciation of the name.

This name should be used for males only, especially if pronounced ''DER-ee-an'' rather than ''DAHR-ee-an''. Daria is feminine, Darian is masculine. This is how it has worked with names like Brenna and Brennan, Brenda and Brendan, Trista and Tristan, Eva and Evan, Julia and Julian, and many more. It's become a cultural expectation.

I love this name, especially spelled 'Darien.'

I love the name Darian! I named my daughter after this name but with my own spelling. Daryian. It's totally original just like her. Plus gives it more of a girly flare. :)

I love this name. It's also my son's name. It can be for both girl or boy but I think it sounds more like a boys name.

Darian is a great name for a boy. I love the sound of this name. I don't mind it for boy or girl but lean towards a boy with this name.

Have also seen the spelling Darrion and I like it much better.

I have seen this name listed as English, Gaelic meaning small great one.

"Darian" is a male name also used in Bulgaria. Its meaning in this country is connected with the Bulgarian word "dar", which means "gift", and because Jesus Christ is "a Gift of God", in Bulgaria "Darian" and the other names beginning with "dar", have a nameday on 25th December.
