    What do you think of the name Aristotle?

    I have been going back and forth between Atlas and Aristotle because my last name starts with an "S" (similar to S M I T H). Atlas Smith? The two S's run together (is that a bad thing???). I have been thinking about using Aristotle instead.

    So what do you think? Atlas or Aristotle? And middle names would be nice

    Atlas by a mile.

    Aristotle sounds too over the top and pretentious for me.

    How about Ariston? (ancient ruler of Sparta, also there was a Greek poet/scholar...I suspect it was relatively common in ancient Greece) Maybe something like Ariston Xavier Smith
    Ariston Olivier Smith
    Ariston Ozias Smith

    Both feel like over the top names for me personally but I chose Aristotle because this seems more like a name. With Atlas it is so much a book of maps/part of the body I just can't quite picture it on a person. Take my thoughts with a grain of salt as my style is just different. In a way I like the idea of Atlas, as though you are saying he could go anywhere..makes me think of adventure.

    Atlas for sure. Aristotle is way too pretentious.
