- Personal experiences with the name Damian: | Edit
I loved the name Damian since watching the movie "Millions". The Omen association doesn't bother me, there are plenty of Jasons, Michaels and Carries out there, no one bugs them about they horror movie names. Besides, there are tons of other GREAT Damians. Saint Damien, Damien from Millions, Damian Wayne, Damian from Mean Girls, Damian Marley, and so on. It's been one of my favorite names for many years, and I definatly plan on naming my first son Damian.
Most people born after '95 won't even get The Omen association.
