    Ewan: just a poor man's Owen?

    I used to love the name Owen, but now it's insanely popular and that really turns me off. I've grown to really love Ewan (YOO-in). However, is it doomed to just be seen as the poor man's Owen? Also, is it just too close where it'll still be confused and/or overshadowed by all the Owens he will inevitably run into in his life? If that's the case, since I'm so turned off by Owen because of popularity, I don't see the point of considering Ewan if he'll just be confused with Owen anyway, ya know?

    I don't see Ewan as being similar to Owen. Totally different pronounciation. Yoo-in is pretty hard to mix up with OO-in, in my opinion!
    I also feel like Ewan while not being popular is still not a weird/strange name because of Ewan MacGregor making it a known name.

    although I must admit I've always pronounced it EW-an.

    Ah yes, another concern! I don't want people to think it is pronounced like that! :/

    I think mispronunciation would be a bigger issue than being confused with Owen. I like Ewan a lot, though--I greatly prefer it over Owen. You could also spell it Euan.
