I knew one once. Not keen. It's a bit too close to the sin of onen ! Or maybe again I'm being too harsh! you'll wish I'd go away.

I love it. Did you know it means ' little green one'?! Cute!

Yes,it's a lovely meaning isn't it!

I've no idea what the sin of onen is,but thanks for the heads up wink

Nice. I prefer the spelling Oren.

I like it, but prefer Torin wink

My mother said that reminded her of torrid though. You can't please everyone!!

My DSis was going for an Orin but all the ages aunts : grandparents kept saying Orange! So she now has an Owen.

I don't like it. It reminds me of the character in Howard's Way <old gimmer>

I know a 10 year old orhan, he suits it I liked it when I heard it as its the sign on the book the never ending story.

BumpKitty Wed 10-Jul-13 19:37:44

I quite like it, I thought of the neverending story too but I think that is Auryn.
