I named my son Stellan in 2014. I came upon it while looking for baby names online. My husband agreed on it instantly. My best friend however made a snarky comment about it, so I gave up on it. My son was born and I still didn't know what to name him. We chose a random name and took him home from the hospital. The next 24 hours were just painful, I just didn't like the other name and it didn't fit him. So finally I grew some b@lls, no longer cared what my friend thought about the name and called the hospital. Luckily they still hadn't filed the paperwork with the state, so changing his name was as easy as a phone call. It fits him perfectly and makes me smile every time I say it.
Some recessive genes showed up and despite my husband having dark hair and eyes, our Stellan has blond hair and blue eyes.

This has been my favourite boys name for about a year. It's really handsome and strong, and even though it's only one letter off of Stella, I don't really associate the two.

Stellan became a Swedish name in 1597, when Stellan Otto von Mörner immigrated from Brandenburg. So Stellan is in fact German to begin with (and has probably nothing to do with the female name Stella). Though it is not used in Germany today and is considered a Swedish name there. [noted -ed]

Personally, I think the name Stellan sounds handsome, yes, if a little bit conceited.

I don't really like this name. It looks too much like someone took Stella and made a masculine form out of it.

I like the name "Stellan" because I find it very handsome. I heard of it after I read about "Dancer in the Dark" as Stellan Skarsgård, a Swedish actor who happens to be also handsome (and very cute during his early career), was considered for a role as Bjork's male friend.

I considered it to name for my son, but then I was shocked to realized that it's not a common name in Sweden. I just really want to know the origin of the name just to be sure it's a good one.

I love this name, and I see no problem with using it in the U.S. though if I was concerned about that then I would put it in the middle spot with a more recognizable first name. Then he would have the option of a more popular name or a less common one.

I like this name but wouldn't use it in my home country (US) because it sounds like 'Stella.' In Sweden or where people are more used to that style-- definitely.

Stellan has never been very common in Sweden, but it's famous thanks to Stellan Skarsgård. I know one Stellan, but he was named after an older relative. It's becoming a little more common, though, thanks to Skarsgård's popularity.

My name is Stellan and have researched the name before. I can not remember where I got the info though. I was informed that it means 'bright star' e.g. interstellar, constellation etc. It also happens to be in the middle of the name for the Spanish language Castellano. I'm half Spanish myself but my father who named me did not realise, he's the Spanish one! He named me after the 1971 world champion table tennis player called Stellan Bengtsson. I live in Bristol, England and have never met anyone else called Stellan in my life. I know though that it is much more common in Sweden. Cheers.
