I prefer Demon XD

I prefer the Damian spelling to Damien because I find the -a in there makes the name seem more accessible and clear and sweet, while Damien weighs the name down a bit more, though it does have more sophistication and gravitas with the -e spelling (I feel the same with all the Julian-Julien, Lucian-Lucien, Sebastian-Sebastien options). With either variant, Damian is a lovely name that I think would be ideal as a well-known, but not hugely popular choice.

I much prefer this spelling to the alternative Damian. I think the E instead of A makes it look and feel more sophisticated. I think this name is very elegant.
