Comments for DARWIN:

According to the Old English dictionaries I've checked, Deor means brave, wild and fierce like a wild animal - not dear.

This actually isn't a bad name at all, even though it would probably seem like a bit of a statement to use this, especially in the US.

It's a nice name, but I always think of the chimpanzee from The Wild Thornberrys, a show which I used to watch and found very hilarious.

It's an ok name, but here in England the connection with Charles Darwin is probably too strong and most people refer to him as Darwin anyway.

This can also be a feminine name, I have seen it on a little girl before.

My son had a little girl in his class named Darwin. Wasn't the gender I expected when first hearing the name - I wouldn't recommend the name as unisex, but it obviously can be.

I think Darwin is quite cute for a girl. It's similar to names like Bronwen and Eirwen, so it seems feminine to me. And the meaning - "dear friend" - is nice. But I don't think I would use this name, as I wouldn't want my house burnt down by angry creationists. But it could work in other countries.

My husband and I decided to name our son Darwin. Most people, when told what name we chose, responded with, "You'd better hope he's smart." I'm still pleased with the choice. Darwin is the sort of name you have to grow into. I still can't fathom someone would think it appropriate for a girl. It seems totally masculine to me.

The sound isn't very good to begin with... And I'm afraid you'll automatically be considered an atheist if you name your son this (which you probably will be anyways). So yeah, I think it's kind of like "let's let everyone know our views on creation", which is quite pretentious. Oh well, it's better than naming your son Jesus..

I love this name because I can tell right away if you're a fellow atheist or not.
But also I think it's a nice simple name and it's not overused such as John, Jack, etc. I quite like it.
I wouldn't use it personally.
