I named one of my triplets Carsten. I love how strong the name sounds, and I also love that its a German name (I'm German myself).

When I was little, there was a young GIRL down the street named Carsten.It fit her nicely and I could see myself naming a daughter Carsten, even though its only listed on websites as a boy name.
