We just named our son Caspian Kai who was born 11/6/17. We call him Caz for short at times. I just love it. I've gotten nothing but compliments on his name so far!

I loooove this name, partly because of the princely Narnia connotations, but also because of the (very short) Emily Dickinson poem:
"Least rivers - docile to some sea. My Caspian - thee."
Also, if I met a real man named Caspian, I think I would just about faint at how cool it was!

I loved the name even more when I remembered that line was in the Little Mermaid because not only is Caspian the name of a sea but my oldest sons name is Sebastian and Caspian was just the perfect fit even if it does mean referencing names in my favorite Disney movie ! Sebastian 5-5-12 and Caspian 4-18-16 ❤️

My sons name is Caspian, born April 18th 2016 and I couldn't agree with you more ! I fell instantly in love when I discovered this name !

I'm loving this, but still (currently!) like Kasper/Casper just that little bit more. Such awesome names.

I agree. Caspian is a handsome and romantic but playful name. I also love the nicknames Cass, Casper or Aspen.

I've loved this since I was a child because of Chronicles of Narnia, both the books and movies. There's a definite adventurous swashbuckling vibe I get from Caspian, in addition to a handsome Victorian-y charm (similar to names like Leonidas, Willoughby etc., you know what I mean?). Caspian is such a great, distinctive but not completely weird/obscure choice- I'd love to meet a Caspian IRL. + I keep imagining a twin sibset named Caspian and Adria, because of the sea theme- I think it'd be so cute!

I love this name!!! I'm hoping to get pregnant this year and if it's a boy it will be Caspian. His brothers name is Gideon and I think they sound like brothers. Now I need to find a girl name that is just as epic sounding!

I really like this name. We are hoping to use it for a second son!

I cannot image a more beautiful name for a boy.

Those comments are probably coming from people who think Jaxon, Brynleigh, Maci, and Kaidan are all A+ choices.

We are planning on using this name for a son. Caspian Wolfe is our top pick! A nickname we plan to use is Penn because I don't really like Cas or Cash.

Caspian is the bacon of names, it makes everything sound better.

In my opinion a wonderful name. It just sounds beautiful. I also like the nicknames Cas and Ian.

I love this name, but the first thing that popped into my head was that line from The Little Mermaid, where Ursula says something like
"arooga salooga the winds of the Caspian Sea..."
Where did that random Disney reference even come from?
Still love this name!

I love this name but hubby thought I was crazy. Caspian Nicolas sounds like some old world explorer. NN could be Ian.

Our pop culture and famous people sections are wikis, and so editable by anyone if you don't think they belong there.

What is with all these caspian animals on pop culture references? Seems really unnecessary to me. Not exactly pop culture references, and a bit overkill.

I absolutely adore this name, and I'm confident I always will. It looks and sounds beautiful, and the associations are brilliant; the link to nature and the Caspian Sea, and the magical realm of books, fiction and Narnia. I imagine a fun loving little boy running around and getting dirty through play, dreaming of adventures and new lands, always exploring and discovering. I refuse to be swayed on Caspian, and I'm willing to fight for it when the time comes.

Absolutely loving this name, but one other site, the comments were just awful. Saying I'd scar my baby for life with a name like this, just one after the other. Sort of upsetting because it's just beautiful. Really hoping it grows on the boyfriend.

If bubs is a boy, this will be his name. I love how unique it is, while still quite familiar. The Caspian Sea, with its power and majesty makes this name simply irresistible to me. The nicknames Ian, Cash, and Caz also makes it a lot more accessible.
