I agree with MarioDM02. This is a really weird name.
"Whatcha doin', Ewan?" Have to say I've known two Ewans in my life (one French spelled Juan) and both were/are direct, intelligent, funny and daring individuals in their own way. Personally I love the name, sound and its Gaelic roots. I'm seriously considering it if the lights turn Blue.
Every Ewan I've met is positively limited in every way, no idea why people would hurt their child like this.
Umm... wha-? Sorry, but this name is confusing. It makes my head hurt...
Ewan is the name of a character from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. He is Tethys' little brother.
Ewan McGregor is a Scottish actor. His first professional role was in 1993, when he won a leading role in the Channel 4 series Lipstick on Your Collar. He is best known for his roles as heroin addict Mark Renton in the drama films Trainspotting (1996) and T2 Trainspotting (2017), the young Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequel trilogy (1999–2005), poet Christian in the musical film Moulin Rouge! (2001), and Dr. Alfred Jones in the romantic comedy-drama Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (2011). He received Golden Globe nominations for Best Actor – Musical or Comedy for both Moulin Rouge! And Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. McGregor has also starred in theatre productions of Guys and Dolls (2005–07) and Othello (2007–08). He was ranked number 36 on Empire magazine's "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list in 1997. In a 2004 poll for the BBC, McGregor was named the fourth most influential person in British culture. He has been involved in charity work and has served as an ambassador for UNICEF UK since 2004. In 2016, he received the BAFTA Britannia Humanitarian Award.
Its pronounced You-Win.
The name Ewan was given to 138 boys born in the US in 2015.
I always thought this name was pronounced ə-wen (ə like a rhymes with hay). I'm not sure I like it now that I know it's pronounced you-in.
I can't stand this name. I know two boys called Ewan (and another who I think spells it differently) and they're all loudmouthed, uncouth and stupid, just like their name. It also sounds like "you and": you 'n' me!

And a final word: ewwwwww.
My good friend has this name, and his father was born and raised in Scotland, so I'm pretty sure the pronunciation is right -- we pronounce his name "YOO-in". Kinda like "eww" as in the expression of disgust with an "in" as in "in we go" at the end.
The name Ewan was given to 140 baby boys born in the US in 2012.
How do you pronounce this? Ew-in? That doesn't sound vey nice at all.
I don't like it. It looks like it's supposed to be pronounced "EE-wen", and I get this image of a DJ going, "Ewan Ewan Ewan Ewan!" in this really high voice. I know it's weird, but that's just me.
I didn't think much of this name before, but since I'm a fan of Ewan McGregor I now find it great! Ewan McGregor is amazing! I think of someone like Christian in Moulin Rouge :)
I love both this spelling and the Eoghan spelling.
Well, I still love the name, but I've gotten the impression it's some type of derivative of a Biblical name, and if that's the case, I won't use it. It doesn't sound anything like Eugene or John or whatever it's derived from, but if it is, that's a dealbreaker for me. I still hope this name doesn't become overused in America, as that really ruins good names big time. It is quite overused in Britain, though, and that's too bad.
A name in the Bible is a HEBREW name, not necessarily just a "Bible name". I think it is a very shallow reason to dislike a name because it is found in the Bible. No offense, that's just my opinion.
I love this name and would love to use this for my son if I ever have one. It's short, simple, and mature enough for a man, but not old-fashioned or too ''serious''. It sounds like a name of a fairly intelligent, decent guy.
A mistake in the presentation:
Ewan has been very much in use in Brittany (not only in Scotland), in different versions (Ewen, Iwan, Erwan), for a very long time.
Well I moved to Germany and had my baby here. My husband got to name him, when I was pregnant we said if it's a boy he gets to choose and if it's a girl then I get to choose. I really was against the name because I knew the Germans would not pronounce it right, I got to pick his middle name Reese and when I'm at the doctors and other places they always shout EE-van (as in VAN (motor) Resuh and they roll the R, it's horrible! But I did get used to it, it really suits him.
As the name "Alan", "Ewan" is not only in use in Scotland but also in Brittany.
Actually, Ewan is also a Breton name with different spellings (Ewan, Iwan, Ewen, Youenn, Erwan). Your presentation of the name is not totally correct as it is not only Scottish but also Breton; sorry.
Ewan (Gaelic for John and other variants Ian, Evan etc) is pronounced Ewe-an. The name means young warror.
Pronounced YOU-in.
Famous bearer is Ewan McGregor, Obi Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequels.
