    I kind of love it. It's a wonderful sound and my favorite of the musketeers. I also think of Aravis from the narnia books, although it's nicer with an m to me. Good name, cool references...but possibly a bit much irl. MN definitely.

    No, me neither! I just thought Aramis, Athos and Porthos were their actual (as in first) names, and D'Artagnan chose to go by this name in honor/remembrance of his father?

    I think it's a usable name--but that may be because I know a 4 month old named Aramis Scott. I asked my husband what his first impression of the name was and he said he would always think first of the musketeer. If you like that connection, then I see no reason not to use it. Aramis is most popularly known as a musketeer so it's an inescapable association but I'd consider it a positive association.

    I just want to add(having not read the other comments yet) that I think Ari is a super usable nickname. A quick wiki search for Ari will bring up a HUGE list of people and characters named Ari.

    I know a little Aramis! He thinks it's cool that no one else has his name. He gets compliments on it all the time. The only thing I would say is that sometimes it sounds like he, or the other kids are saying "air-miss". No biggie.

    Thank you! Ari is an adorable nickname I've never heard of a cologne called Aramis, my thoughts have always just been of the Musketeer - definitely not the worst character to be named after though
