Duncan is ok. It just makes me think of Dunkin Donuts. I like Phoenix better but I wish people would lay off using it on girls-I hate to admit that it ruins my love for it as a male name. *Technically it is unisex these days, just saying*
Phoenix I still love on a boy, cannot help it. Nix or Nixon would be a cool nickname. I think both could work with Wright.
I think both sound fine with the last name.
Duncan -- Love it. It's sort of a nerdy sounding name, but at the same time, I have no problem seeing it on a football player. It's versatile. I also love that it has Shakespeare connections and I think Dan is an accessible nickname.
Phoenix -- Love it! I love that it's mythological, I love the symbolism behind the bird, I love the images it conjures. If you're into place names, it's got that going too. It's strong, it has Nix (or Nick if you want it 'normal') and it's just cool all around.
I love phoenix one of my fave names.. duncan is also nice i like declan too.
I do like Cruz, thanks for the suggestion..but our surname is only one sylable, so first name would need to be multiple (pet peeve!)
Phoenix Wright is a protagonist in a pretty popular videogame where he's a lawyer and catchphrase is screaming OBJECTION and there's tons of fan-art of it, so I wouldn't have been cool with that despite liking the name Phoenix.
Fox is my favourite similar sounding name but doesn't sound right with a one syllable last.
What about other mythological animals, like Griffin/Gryphon or Fenris? Griffin Wright sounds manly and strong. Fenris is not THAT far off Phoenix...?
Duncan is quite likable. Duncan Wright has a good sound.
