I like the name Roman. I think it sounds nice and very masculine.

Roman is a nice name. But it is rather ironic. I mean imagine if someone asks "are you really from Rome?" I think the name was not invented until the 16th Century when Rome (empire) became Italy, LOL.

Sofia Coppola has a brother named Roman. She named her son in honor of him, I think.

The owner of this site should just put 'self explanatory' for the meaning of this name. What else would it mean?

Unfortunately, celebrities with more money than sense have gotten their hands on this nice name. I've always liked this name, and I think it's sad that it's hot right now.

My family and I went to Olive Garden recently and our waiter's name was Roman. My sister and I both agreed that it was a very interesting name. I really like it! It sounds cool. I didn't make the connection to Rome when I first heard the name, but that may just be me! XD

I suppose this is an OK name if you are Russian, Czech, Polish, etc., but it does not sound very professional if you are English and bear this name. It makes me think of a little boy. Much too modern for me.

Roman is one of those names that can age gracefully which is nice. I've only known one Roman and the name has never been overly popular in America. It's staying on my list.

Roman is the name of rapper/singer Nicki Minaj's alter ego. She often refers to herself as this name. Maybe that's why I can't take this name seriously.
― Anonymous User  7/8/2013
Although I like the sound of Roman, it is really not a name. Plus, a namesake is Roman Polanski, who is an admitted child rapist that was too chicken (or too arrogant) to face the punishment for his crime. I would never want my child to be affiliated with that.
C.Ambrosi  9/18/2013
Thinking back, I actually started to like this name. It has a strong sound to it.
Lee Augustus  12/18/2013
This name is used for a lot of things and that it is now used as an Atrian name for the hit series "Star-Crossed" on the cw network. It's good. Go watch!

I'm a Polish speaker and to me the name Roman sounds rather common, because it's a rather popular name in Poland. I am wondering though, if in English speaking countries this name would be considered "pretentious" because of its connotation with the "Roman Empire" etc...
angolmois  11/8/2014
A masculine and magnificent name! I would complain that it's not more popular, but maybe that's a good thing. In a sea of "-aden's" and other garbage, Roman would stand out as the one of a kind name it is.
Ali Hassan  11/29/2014
The hatred of Roman Polanski among Americans is only 60% due to the fact that he "raped" a 13-year-old drunk girl. The other 40% is due to the fact that they consider the name "Roman" to be the epitome of pretentiousness...
angolmois  12/12/2014
Polish pronunciation: RAW-man.
angolmois  12/12/2014
Doesn't seem pretentious to me, being an English speaker. My first thought would be, of course, the Roman empire, so what. As for a negative connotation, if that were a real issue, no one would ever name their kid Charles, Elizabeth, or Timothy among many other names.

Roman Castevet is a character from the horror film "Rosemary's Baby". He is a devil worshipper, which would be a bad association for many.

I just love the name Roman! I named my second child this name. I personally don't know any other people who had the name so it felt quite original to me. However, I hear a lot of the name Rowen which just seems like a cheap knockoff of the name Roman. Some friends will call him Roman Pierce just for fun. Which I don't mind, being a super fan of the Fast & Furious franchise and all.

I've always loved the name Roman, so it was at the top of the list once we discovered we were having a boy. I have never met anyone with the first name but I had a high school classmate with it as a last name. Everyone thinks it sounds very nice & "studly". But since he's only 1 year old, the "studly" part is not so important. Lol :)

Means "novel" (book) in Swedish.

This is my name, and I love it! I was born in 2002. It's so uncommon and I've never met any other Roman's in my life. I've always been the only Roman in the school. Unfortunately, this name is getting a little more popular in the US, I'm in Canada so maybe it's different. If you don't like this name, then don't bother saying so! 10/10.
