I love this name. DH said it sounds made up (he's English, I'm Scottish).

Thoughts?

Oops meant couldn't - Struan and Euan not so great

I am with your dh. I would go for a name that is a bit more recognisable and practical.

I love it sadly DP vetoed it! What about Hamish, Kyle, Declan, lewis, Harris, Fergus, fergal, Campbell, liam, Lachlan, Logan, Aaron, Angus, Ross, Scott

Lovely Scottish name.

My friend has a Struan. I didn't 'get' it at first but now it suits him.

My DS is Struan. There are a few more I know around here (in Scotland). I still love his name and would struggle to find another Scottish name for a boy that I like as much.

I'm in Scotland and there's a baby Struan at toddler group. I'm not keen but DH likes it and says it's a perfectly acceptable Scottish name.

I have an Angus and we're dithering between Struan and Ruaridh for no 2. Struan definitely sounds better in my Dh's Scottish accent than my very English one.

Never heard it before and not Scotish but I like it a lot. Go for it.

Love it

Love it. I'm in Scotland, only know one. It's on my list for DC3 along with Innes and Murdo.

I love, love, love this name.

I'm an Irish speaker and I really like a lot of Gaelic boys' names.

I also really like Seoras (not sure if there should be an accent.)

I love Murdo bit again DP vetoed it sad

Struan's a gorgeous name.

CocktailQueen Sat 09-Feb-13 20:59:48

I know a couple of Struans. Nice name, go for it!

Strongly dislike this name. Awful sound.
