This name pops out to me as something that would fit a villain in a novel. It sounds evil somehow. That's probably just me, though...

I was looking back on the comments I had posted on names, and then I saw this. It's funny to me because, yes, I do still like the name Lorcan, but I am not as obsessed with it as I was then. It's weird how my naming style can change so quickly. :)

This name is hard for me to say. I love the name Logan, but when I say Lorcan, it feels awakward on my tongue. I really do not like it all.

My number one name for a boy right now. So mystic, but easy to say and spell; Lorcan seems to just roll of my tongue. The name is a great way to honor my Irish roots, and I love how it means "fierce." If I had a son this very second I would name him Lorcan without a doubt.
