Comments for OCTAVIAN:

Octavion was an amazing military strategist, but because of the suffix "Oct"- which I imagine small children would immediately associate with an octopus, I would be hesitant to name a child this.

Tavian makes a good nickname for Octavian. Or Tavian just alone.

I LOVE the name Octavian. I heard it in History class one day and fell in love with it. I want to name my second son this. I love it mostly because it's unique. You don't hear it anymore.

I like this name. Octavian sounds intelligent and commanding, and would be a perfect middle name. Even if the "octopus" association arises, well, I like octopi better than most animals anyhow.

I adore the name Octavian. Makes me think of a boy who is intelligent and sincere. The historical ties make it so the name demands respect, and has an allure of power to it.

As pretentious as it gets.

Octavian is the link in the bittersweet love triangle in Strauss' opera, Der Rosenkavalier. A very funny yet surprisingly touching opera composed with a beautiful score.
