    Yep, Aryan makes me cringe. I would not assume you were a neo-Nazi, but I would hate saying your child's name. I like Rohan and Sam a lot though!

    Aryan is an absolute no go...

    But Arjen, Adrian, and Orion (all previously suggested) work as alternatives. Similar but different enough in look and pronunciation not to be an issue.

    If you are looking for Indian names I think these work well in the US. (I used to work at an Indian Restaurant and the *ones are names of coworkers I had whose names worked well).

    Avinash (nn Avi)*
    Shiva*
    Manu
    Punit*
    Vimal
    Arjun
    Bala
    Jai/Jay*
    Kavi*
    Mohinder
    ...if my husbands has no vote, then....
    Endora & Lorelei / Dexter & Gideon
    ...newlyweds; ntnp...

    Aryan would be threatened, teased, hated. NO GO.

    I would avoid it, Rohan is so much nicer. Have you thought about Orion?

    I think Arjen is fine if its pronounced like its spelled. at about Arjun? Its Hindi in origin and Arjen is a variation of it. But I think its more accessible, and less offensive than anything pronounced like Aryan. Other cute Hindi boys names include:

    Dhani
    Neel
    Aakil
    Sahil
    Sanjay
    Viro


    But unfortunately Aryan, like Adolf and Fidel, just won't go over well in the US.
