Is Odin usable?
It's not on my list right now, I'm just curious. A friend linked me to a baby photo contest page the other day and I (of course) had to browse through some of the other entries to see what their names were. And I saw two different baby boys named Odin, and one Odyn. So I'm just wondering.
Personally I think it'd be fine because:
1) The sound of it "fits in" with the trendy names right now, since it's really only one syllable off from Aiden et al and ends with -in
2) It has a cute nickname, Odie
3) The namesake of the Norse god isn't something most people know a lot about, but even if they do he's a pretty badass namesake
What's your opinion? And just for fun, what siblings would you put with Odin?unexpectedly expecting #1

I go back and forth on Odin. I do really love it, but sometimes think it might just be too much. If the surname was something more 'traditional' a la Miller or Morris, I might just consider it, but with Fu, it almost sounds comical. So, its only the middle for me. I'd admire someone who used it up front though.Melissa, Mama to Oscar Leopold.
