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

Thoughts?

Also Scottish , know one and love it.

Strongly dislike this name. Awful sound.

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

Struan's a gorgeous name.

I love Murdo bit again DP vetoed it sad

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.)

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

Selks Sat 09-Feb-13 20:27:08

Love it

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

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.

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.

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.

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

mrstowers Fri 08-Feb-13 18:33:43

Lovely Scottish name.

Oscarandelliesmum Fri 08-Feb-13 18:15:01

I adore it!!!! One of my best friends is called this. Handsome, strapping Scottish fella wink

piemistress Fri 08-Feb-13 18:11:04

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

Scootee Fri 08-Feb-13 18:10:14

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

lollystix Fri 08-Feb-13 18:05:27

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

lollystix Fri 08-Feb-13 18:04:53

Like -could do it as I have Euan (and a Callumblush)

amck5700 Fri 08-Feb-13 18:00:30

yes bunbaker - but with a proper scottish rrrr grin

In my accent it goes Strrru-in - but vowels in Scotland are pretty interchangeable!

Bunbaker Fri 08-Feb-13 17:58:23

I quite like it. Is it pronounced as it is written - Strewan?

amck5700 Fri 08-Feb-13 17:57:02

Struan is a traditional name for my family/clan - but my OH didn't like it.

We went with Craig but he was almost Gregor. Younger son is Ciar (Keir).

Also like Grant, Innes, Kerr & Callum.

BonaDea Fri 08-Feb-13 17:51:29

Hmmm, bit of a mixed reaction which is what I feared!

Quite like Cameron and it's not too popular down here south of the border. Although, of course, there is always the risk that people think we named him for mega-head David. wink
