My sweet baby boy has this name! He's named after his grandfather, my family has a tradition to carry it down with every other generation. I can't wait until he's a grandfather too and has a Satan named after him! I'm just so proud of my family.

Not only would it be awful to name your child Satan, but it would be even worse, in a funny way, if you actually said it was someone's 'Christian' name!

Why are people saying it's a horrible and disgusting name?
Sure it's just an opinion of yours but what if a person's name is actually Satan?
Just imagine that someone says that your name is horrible and disgusting!

Were this name not the Devil's biblical title, it would be a great name. However, as a Hindu, I think Satan is not the wisest choice for a child, even in the 21st century. Most people select names not just for their beauty, but for their meanings. What child, Christian or not, would be happy to learn his/her name means 'Devil,' the ultimate evil force?

I just want to point out that the religious text that Satan is generally associated with, never says that the Devil and Satan are the same person. Satan is simply someone who points out different viewpoints to God (like in the book of Job.)

Really people, if some religious idiots hadn't decided to name an invisible being's "enemy" Satan, you would not be opposed to this name. It's a nice name. Though I would never use it because people would think you were a Satanist (who don't even worship the devil) or just plain crazy. It's sad this name, like a few others, had to be ruined because people are idiots.

Putting Christianity aside, I hate this name. It doesn't sound good, and the guy'll have a tough time making a good first impression if he has this as a name. His parents will be looked at badly, too; people will think them either cruel, Devil worshippers, or emo-goths. But if you want to stick your son with this and have him teased for the rest of his life, I'm not stopping you.

I think the amount of comments this name gets is insane. Please, calm down. It goes without saying nobody would ever call their child Satan for their lives. This is not a baby name site, nor is it suggesting that people should start calling their sons Satan. This name is just listed so, if you were curious, you could look up what Satan means. It's also the reason why names that nobody would use, like Legolas, Cinderella and Aladdin, are also listed here.

It sounds too much like Santa. Your kid will be called Santa Claus all the- ohhhh, wait, more importantly, it's the name of a negative supernatural being in English-speaking countries.
Well, even if you're not surrounded by religion-obsessed people, it will be TREMENDOUSLY hard to go through life in English-speaking countries with this name. Countries excluding America aren't as snobby, there will be less association.
It sounds pretty nice, but you can't name anything Satan with only that reason.

"Hello, my name is Satan." "Oh my God, Satan, like the devil?" "No, like the tofu." Actually, it's not tofu, it's wheat gluten, and it's spelled seitan, but it stills creeps me out to have to ask for it in the supermarket. What's wrong with being Seitan, people? It's meatless and kill-free!

Actually, Satan is my name. It's a great way to stand out in people's memories.

This sounds like what parents who had twins and decided that they would spoil one of them and treat the other like a piece of toilet paper stuck to their shoe would name the latter. And the kid would be perfect, totally defying his name. Just my impression.

It seems to me that most anyone who uses this name is just intentionally trying to be a wiseass, and know it very well. Although there are probably a few rare people who honestly just like the sound alone.
I'd say Satin, Satine, Stan, or even Saturn are similar names that sound much smoother. I do try to look at the name itself and not its associations, but it to me still looks kinda awkward and lacking. Even just adding a sound to the end of it would improve it a lot, like something from here: http://www.behindthename.com/glossary/view/name_element

May I please be the voice of reason, here? Satan is clearly an earthly name for the devil, and as such those named Satan may not be anything like him. (People named this might choose to be proud, such as the person who described their name as 'exotic'.) Besides, God is a sensible being and looks beyond names and other properties amongst that. I do believe names are important, though. If a person is truly good, he'll look beyond any human named Satan. I'm not encouraging its use, nor attempting to put down Christianity, Judaism, or whatever. In fact, I fully believe in God. I'm simply trying to knock some sense into people into actually thinking about the circumstances surrounding this name! Thank you very much.

It doesn't SOUND bad, but it would be pretty damn naive and willingly obtuse to use this name because it ''sounds cool''. Honestly, what would be your thoughts if you heard this was someone's name? Pissing off evangelical Christians may be fun, but unfortunately, this name would just make it seem like the parents are a) some total wackos, maybe Satan worshippers or some other cult members b) immature young people who thought it would be hilarious c) very negative, angst-ridden young people who want to state to everyone that they are big time contrarians. Either way, the name will seem like a statement of something negative. Yeah, and imagine a guy named Satan trying to make it in corporate America with that name! Come on, people are rejected for being gay alone!

I am an atheist but I still think this name is just absurd. The name Satan has such a bad namesake, whether he really exists or not, that I wouldn't even consider using this for a child. I do think it would be funny for a very innocent pet like a mouse or a fish or something.

Are you serious? That's like naming your child Evil. I think anyone with the name Satan would have a hard time (at least in the US, maybe a different country might be better) given that our society is highly populated with Christians. It sounds like you either come from a freaky cult or your parents literally hate you.

Well, it has a great sound. I personally would consider liking this name a lot if not for the meaning or what it gets associated with. I don't think Christianity should have anything to do, I mean of course it's weird to call your kid Satan but just because you are Christian doesn't mean you can't. For some people I guess that it would be blasphemic to name you kid Satan but if you like the name then I don't think that should get in the way. If it was given in love or for some other reason that is not ´´I think my child will be satanic and I want him to worship Satan`` then I think it's okay (except I still think it would be strange: ´´hello my name's Satan how do you do?`` the other guy: ´´(snorts) I can't see you becoming a priest!``)

One of my favorite books contains a kindly father figure whose name is Saetan. He has sons named Lucivar and Daemon. All three are good men. I really liked how the author took names that are conventually thought of to describe demons out of the Christian bible and turn that negative association on its head.

Actually, Satan is not the 'enemy of GD' in the Torah, only in the Christian translation. The concept of duality/an enemy of GD is against Judaic teaching. Satan is first seen by name (though rarely translated as such - il'Satan is also translated as stumbling block) to the gentile prophet Bilaam & his donkey. He's later seen asking permission to test Job. In the Torah, He works for GD to test man as fire to gold - and it is said an angel of accusation/of Satan is created for every wrong deed done to prosecute against the soul at judgement. I wouldn't use this name or any of the angelic names either.

In the New Testament Satan is referred to as Beelzebub ( lord of the flies ). Beelzebub comes from the Caananite fertility god Baal ( Lord ). The Caananites used to sacrifice infants to Baal for the benefit of their farming, also fornication during religious ceremonies was practiced. This is where the immoral connotations to Baal come from. Hence the devil. An invented deity.

For me, I'd totally use this name as a middle name! Think about it this way, most people choose middle names to honour someone like their dead grandma Joyce. I don't really have anyone I want to honour and if I did maybe I'd add a second middle name (I always thought they were sorta regal anyways). I have to live my life with a very boring middle name (Lee- bleugh!) I want my kid to have some wack job crazy middle name, somethig unique. He will barely use his middle name anyways! Why not have fun with it? My top choices are now Patrik Elmo and Ryan Joaquin Satan! ;D!

As far as the comments go about how this is not about baby names but a general name site. Well of course thats true, however, how do you get your name? Your parents, so of course people are going to give their opinions and suggest you to not name your child this. And guess what so am I. Like it was mentioned. No matter your religion you know how others view the name. So that poor child would be the one to suffer for having a name like that. Sure you have the right to name your kid whatever you want. It is your RIGHT to do so but hopefully you make the RIGHT decision upon doing so and give the child a better name than this. Sure you can have your opinions and suggest that this name sounds awesome or whatever your opinion is but don't suffer a child with it. I sure wouldn't.

I agree that this is a general name site and NOT a baby name site but since we are on the subject I do not believe in god but it would still be stupid to name a child Satan. A parent who would name their child this is only thinking of themselves, and the sense of comedy or rebellion they get from it, not the child. Any person who would do this to a child is not mature enough to have children.

As far as it being illegal to name your child Satan, or anything, I think that's excessive, if not ridiculous. You should be able to name your child whatever you want, as long as they are able to change their own name. Anyway, that comment reminded me of the Japanese government, which has a law that you cannot choose the characters for your child's name if it's not part of an approved list. A few years ago there was a case against a couple who wanted to name their son, I think, with a character that meant "devil" (akuma.)

Don't call your kid Satan? I'll call my kid whatever I want! And if some stuck up Christian fool thinks it's fit to make distasteful comments on my kids names they can go to hell and have fun calling their kids things like 'nosex' or 'antifun'. This isn't a comment on Christians. I have many Christian friends. But if you think it's cruel to call a child Satan you're a complete idiot. I don't care about religion.
