I write things on my iPhone. I don't mean to miss words or press two letters at once.

Very odd to me as i understood pagan was a term used by various groups eg Jews, Christians and Romans to describe 'other' gods. Not a religion in itself but a group heading for Druidic, animalistic or other local beliefs. Less the equivalent of naming a son Christian, more like calling him 'outsider'. Plenty of belief groups practicing animal and occasionally human sacrifice as well as gentler nature worship would fall under such a broad description so it's one I would avoid.Thrilled to be mother to @gnes Ei1ish Madeline and Fe1icity Bridget Be@trice
If we'd had boys the list was: Godfrey, Seamus, Alexander, Michael, Felix, Peter, Ignatius & Sebastian.

As someone who participates in a more avant-garde lifestyle I can see the appeal of using such a stigmatized word as the name of a child. It makes people double take or ask you to repeat it. It's remembered. Not to mention it has a lovely sound and is so similar to names like Reagan and Kaegan. However, I feel it would draw negative attention to a child for all the wrong reasons. I would want a positively associated word or name attached to my little one. Not a name they have to explain or may exclude them from a job because a more zealous person assumes that they are something they may not be.
Not that it's a bad thing to be a Pagan, but there is such a stigma about the word. People judge too quickly.
