I like it.

i think andre\stefan\paolo\luca are all a bit Waggish\gangsta rappa type names unless they are family names,if you don't like 'steven\stephen' then don't call him a 'foreign' version of it.

Steven/ stephen is a very different sound to stefan though so whilst it may be similar name in terms of meaning it's not the same feel.

i don't really hold with using a name from another country\culture. it strikes me as v aspirational,and not in a good way.
think 'kids from sink estates called Cheyanne' grin

It's lovely.Much nicer than Stephen/Steven.

I like it. I know it is the French version of Stephen, but it is much nicer. I went to school with one (was a French school) and used to work with one (he was from Leeds).

I love it, I almost called DS1 this and wish i had.

I think it's got a cool, together Scandinavian vibe, also sounds quite modern but is a classic so not faddish and won't date. Travels well too, it's used in loads of European countries but doesn't sound foreign as it's well known in the UK and US.

Oh no.....sorry, I don't like it. reminds me too much of Stefan Dennis - "Paul" in Neighbours??????

MelinaM Sun 11-Sep-11 14:05:01

No, I absolutely hate the name Stephen/Steven to begin with and this is just a foreign variant of it!

lucyspangle Sun 11-Sep-11 14:20:25

Are you East European?

MotherOfHobbit Sun 11-Sep-11 14:23:33

I like Stefan.

Peachy Sun 11-Sep-11 14:26:05

Nice name. Like it a lot. I also like Stephen a lot mind. I don't cre if people use a name from any culture as long as they like it.

mayanna123 Sun 11-Sep-11 15:15:46

It is the German (& possibly Polish,French) version of Stephen. Why on earth would you use a foreign versioin of a classic English name? Are you German, French or Eastern European?

I know a lovely boy called Stefan.

He does get called Stephanie by peers occasionally but not really in a teasing way, it just happens, they all lenthen each others names it he sometimes gets Stephanie.

I like it.

I know a few Steffans which is welsh.

But Stefan is alright.
