I waited on someone named Aristotle. Born late 80's/early 90's? I'll admit I was surprised to hear it, but it was memorable and not in a bad way. I like the Ari nickname option, but I do find it hard to pronounce.

I know a couple with an Aristotle nn Ari and a Phinnius nn Fin adorable! And it has Harry Potter street cred. I prefer nn Aristo and the meaning the best end or saving the best for last if it's your first son. That would be cute too.

MonikerWanderer Says:


Really pretentious. The name will also outshine the person before you get to know them. I'd just go with Aris and use this an nickname.

I think I would use this. It's a bold and daring choice....but the nn Ari / Aris is fantastic and as unexpected as the fullname, in a far less in~ your~ face~ way. Quite usable, with a rich and unparalleled history. But then, I have genuinely considered Michelangelo as well. :)
