    Thoughts on Owlan?

    So I’m having a bit of a name crush right now! I’ve been playing through Zelda: Breath of the Wild and I came across a bridge called the Owlan Bridge, named after a character from a previous game I hadn’t played. The name really stuck out to me and I started really falling in love with it. I was a little hesitant at first to consider it a “proper” name, one that I would actually use on a kid, but then I stumbled upon the very similar Howlan and I was like “Huh, Owlan could totally work then, yeah?”

    I was thinking it could make for a sweet middle name. I just love the outdoorsy feeling it gives, it’s clear inspiration from owls, and how the ‘an’ addition gives a sort of softness to the harsher sound of ‘owl’. I’ve been pronouncing it as ‘ow-len’, almost similar to Alvin; I find it incredibly handsome and just can’t get it off my mind!

    But what are your thoughts, berries? Usable or better left as a guilty pleasure name? Is it too far off from my current name loves? How would your pronounce it? And any first name ideas?

    I misread it for Olwan when I first glanced at it and it took me a moment to get the pronunciation Owl-un in my head but I think it would make an interesting middle -unique but it looks very normal if that makes sense?

    For first names maybe:
    Theodore Owlan
    Jude Owlan
    Jonah Owlan
    Rafferty Owlan
    Seamus Owlan
    Christopher Owlan
    Cassius Owlan
    Jasper Owlan
    Cooper Owlan
    Blake Owlan
    Marcus Owlan

    More names!

    For your consideration, clearer pronunciation with no mispronouncing, Olin.

    Take the w out and make it Olan. Owlan does not look good.

    I think the "ow"/"owl" is a bit too prominent, but a different spelling would be neat!
