    I like Tristan Owen :-)
    I'am eternally, devastatingly romantic, and I thought people would see it because 'romantic' doesnt mean 'sugary.'
    Its dark and tormented - the furor of passion, the despair of an idealism that you can't attain.

    Tristan Owen is great. Use both and if Tristan seems to soft as he gets old he can go be Owen.

    I love both Tristan and Owen! They both have very sensitive, charming images to me. I think of a guy with an Irish accent and loads of charm with both. The sort of guy who spouts poetry and brings a dozen red roses to his date and has a swoonworthy accent, haha. I like the tie to Tristan and Isolde, but I really like Owen as it is. I think I'd be more likely to use Owen, but both are really nice.

    Good luck!

    Tristan as a name has always irritated me. Perhaps it's because of the first (and only) Tristan I ever met (outside of the story Tristan und Isolde) was kind of irritating and had this terrible 90s haircut. Anyways, I vote for Owen. I tend to like more rugged names...and men! Tristan Owen is a nice compromise tho...especially since you've liked Tristan for a lot longer, so you know it's not just a passing fancy.
