This spelling of Konstantin (Constantine) is often used for the character in Chekov's play "The Seagull." Konstantin is a tragically unsuccessful writer who shoots himself. All that aside, I love this spelling and this name--the Russian nickname being "Kostya."

Constantine the Great of the Byzantine empire should qualify. :)

I absolutely ADORE this name because it is strong and it has that undulating quality that makes it nice to say. I like the meaning as well.

I love Konstantin. I imagine a strong, mysterious, dark-haired man.
