Thread: All about Ian...

Ianto as a MN if I ever used it. But with my new-found love for Ian, I was thinking maybe I should just opt for Ianto nn Ian, but I don't think I'm brave enough for it. Plus, I feel like Ianto really sticks out next to Caleb, Everett, Asher, Jack, Gray, Avery, Samuel, Charlie, etc. I think I'll probably just stick to Ian. It's what I really love, and it's not like it's really a nn or anything. Now to find a MN!Ashley

I think Ian is a great name! I'm a substitute teacher and I rarely hear it (there are other names on your list that hear much more often - Caleb, Jack, even Zane), so I doubt your son would be surrounded by other little Ians in school. I think Ianto is a little too out-there to use in the US. Plus, if it's the Welsh diminutive of Ian, that means you'd be naming him a nickname so you could call him by the full name for short. Kind of silly IMO.
