Comments for the name Darius


Comments for DARIUS:

I think the name "Darus" is probably related to Darius. Of course the only place I've heard the name was my maternal grandfather, Darus Ames Guy, and one of my cousins.

The only Darius that comes to mind is Darius Danesh, who was turned away from Pop Idol, to return again the following year (with less hair) and became a hit! (For a while anyway)

French composer Darius Milhaud. (Incidentally, there is no truth to the story that his real name was Marius Dilhaud.)

It is a Persian name coming from "Dariush" who was a great Persian king that invaded Greece. Your information is wrong, it was not Dariush who was defeated at Marathon but his son Xerxes, please change that!

Also, this name has Persian origins and got into Europe by Romans who later translated Persian Wars into Latin.

The forces of Darius were defeated at Marathon; the navy of Xerxes I was defeated at Salamis.

It's my name :) I like it. It's not very rare where I live but quite unusual.

It's just a great name! And all of the female forms are beautiful, too- Daria, Darina and Dariana.

This is a really cool name.

Darius is *not* the Lithuanian form; the correct Lithuanian form of Darius is Darijus.

In the novel series "House of Night" one of the characters has this name.
He's a strong and powerful warrior. The only one who isn't under the influence of the school's headmistress.
He's following Zoey Blackbird.
This is a very nice character. He's a real man, macho and all those things, but he has also some soft spots in his character.
The name by the way is really liked by me. In my opinion, this name was a good choice for this warrior. Can't say why, but sometimes you can feel that a name is just perfect for a character.

I like this quite a bit. I hope it come to mainstream popularity and replace all those "Jaydens" and "Kylers."
