I prefer Mamoru or even the Spanish version Armando.
It is also the name of a member of the staff of I Claudius.

This is my 17 year old son's name! I love it! He also loves his name. I see it as an all boys name. I love the fact that it isn't overly popular, nor unheard of. It is a great name!

It can be used as a feminine name as well. I know a girl with this spelling.

The Darien Gap is the impassable, mountainous jungle region between Panama and Colombia. It is considered the "impassable link" in the Pan-American highway, and is the reason you are unable to drive between North and South America.

I prefer this name spelled "Derian".

Darien is the BOY version and Darienne/Darrienne is the GIRL version (just like Erin and Aaron).

It will always remind me of Tuxedo Mask. But I do like this name! It sounds nice for a boy, but OK for a girl.

I've loved this name since I first heard it on Sailor Moon ;)

I so totally think of Tuxedo Mask. I like this name. It sounds strong, and nice.

I was an avid Sailor Moon fan when I was little, so of course I first think of Tuxedo Mask and Serena screaming his name, but I still love it. Most likely because of the Tuxedo-influence, I get a sense of mystery and a protector with the name, almost Batman-like: A hero in the dark.

I have used this name before, and I think it's a wonderful name, though I do think it is more of a boy's name than a girl's name. I'm not totally against a girl being called Darien, but unless there's a change of spelling (Darienne), I think it's more appropriate for a boy. But that could be the Sailor Moon fan in me talking!

I really like the sound of this name, I don't mind it for boy or girl but personally I lean towards boy for this name.

I know a girl who spells in Darienne, but it's pronounced Dar-ee-en.

My 10 year old son is called Darien. I heard the name on an early 90's space age programme called Time Trax and fell in love with it, most people think it should be Darren. He gets called Daz now for short which is a shame, I think it's cool!
