    Re: Thoughts on name Athen for a boy? (like Athens without '

    Honestly, I don't like it at all. I understand Athens...but what's the point of just Athen? I think he would definitely get mistaken for Ethan.

Go for it!
    Thanks! I feel the same way.. I don't think my sister-in-laws liked it either, but it grew on them too! I think I am going to go for something very simple for his middle name. We are thinking Athen William..

    Athen is a great name

    Hi I know I'm late to the party but I love the name Athen in fact that is my son's name and people for the most part get it right. I also gave him a pretty common middle name and I like it better than Athens because who wants go to Athens's house too many ssssssss.

    I agree that upon reading it I pronounce it like Athens just without the 's'. Not like Nathan without the 'N'.
    In which case I do really like it. Any other way of pronouncing it turns me off completely.
