    Aryan as a first name?

    Hi all,

    I really like this name and also found a few alternate spelling - Arian, Arjen.

    But don't know how it will be perceived by people.

    Have you come across people with this name. We are looking for names that have Indian origin but easy and friendly enough to pass the playground test her in the U.S

    The other names shortlisted are

    Sam
    Rohan

    In the US, Aryan (and anything that sounds like it) would be associated with a major hate group. Definitely avoid it.

    I wouldn't recommend it. At all. But I really like Rohan, and Sam is nice too.

    I would highly recommend Rohan and Sam over Aryan.
