LOL @ Onion!

[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orion_(constellation) Orion a constellation, the most obvious and most recognisable constellation in the winter sky. You will start seeing it soon very early in the morning.

It is pronounced Or Rion.

Nice name, I'd use it but then i'm in to astronomy and all that shit.

It does look like Onion when it's written down!

How about Stellen?

I think of the film company.

I'm ashamed my first thought wasn't stars.

Love this name, similar to Ryan, but IMO more interesting (sorry if that offends anyone) without being weird.

Orinoco as a similar alternative grin

aah. i always looked at the night sky and thought i'd call a son Orion. just that it would naturally happen. course it didn't. still think it is a cool name though.

I love it. DH vetoed it for every one of my boys. I should have slipped it in as a middle name somewhere.

And I did have a dog called Sirius!

I think Orion is a great name - solid, manly and easy to pronounce (Or-EYE-on).
