I rather like how my name came to be. My full name is Robert DARREN. But back in 1965 when I was born, a singer named Bobby Darren was doing a hit called Mac the Knife. Mom liked pop music 8=) Now I go by Darren because my Dad's name is Robert John and there were just too many Bobs in the house and I did NOT want to be called BJ... LOL.

A good, masculine-sounding name. I like that it is fairly uncommon these days, which helps it stand out better than more common names.

I have a feeling that rather than being of Irish origin (how fashionable it seems to be to assign everything to an Irish origin) I think it might be Welsh. My mother grew up in South Wales, Abertillery/Ebbw Vale, and when I was born in 1961 she found Darren in a book of names and she liked the sound of it.

Looking at an ordnance survey map of the area my mum grew up in there are quite a few named geographical features in the hills around the towns with Darren in their name.

Darren is a nice name. I think I prefer Darrell or Darian as they seem more interesting to me over simple Darren. While I don’t think it’s a girl's name, I know there’s a woman named Daron Nefcy who created Star vs. The Forces of Evil which is a great show.

From what I've seen, the name Darren seems to be very popular in the UK. (I'm American, for the record.) My uncle spells his name "Darrin," and I know a woman named Daryn Ann; I think she was named after her father, Darren.

My daughter is Darryn (pronounced Dare-ren). I like it for a boy or girl as she is named after her great uncle Darren.

It's not a bad name, but I can't help but think of obnoxious college frat boys when I hear it, though I'm not sure why. Other than that, it's quite a plain and common name, with nothing much good or bad going for it.

I've always kind of liked this name due to the "Bewitched" character. I used to watch that show when I was a kid and I remember feeling sorry for him sometimes when Samantha would create a big mess with her magic.

I've only known Darrens that are girls (spelled differently). There's the newscaster Daryn Kagan and I have a girl in my class named Daryn. I've always liked it for a girl spelled Darrin.

Darren Wilson is the name of the drums/vocalist in a band called The Hush Sound (which I love, by the way). I think the name itself is quite nice as well.

Dreadfully trashy in New Zealand. It's a Wayne or Shane kind of name.

Darren is an awesome name for a boy. Very masculine and strong sounding. I have only known older men with this name but recently met a 6 year old with this name and thought wow that is great. I would love to see more young boys with this name.

It's my name. It's fair, I suppose. I don't like the sound; the "ren" ending seems hard. But when it's YOUR name, you have to like it somewhat. ^_^

Darren is the most beautiful male name ever. I love this name, mostly due to Darren Hayes, an amazing singer, who moved me with his songs and wisdom. But anyway, this name is intriguing and cute. Love it!
