I know it's a bit old-fashioned, but I really like the name Ian. Short, nice sounding, simple. Is it too old-man though?

I know quite a few Ians, and ultimately its a perfectly ok name. But sadly for me it will be forever tainted by Rev Dr Ian Paisley sad

oh, actually, you know the Olivia children's books, about the family of pigs? Olivia's little brother is called Ian, I remember thinking it was really cute when I read them, as it's an unusual name these days. I know comparing a child's name to a family of pigs sounds like I'm being a total bitch, but I'm not honestly, they're lovely books.

OP if you like it, use it!

I like it a lot and the 3 Ians I know are lovely people (not weasel like at all) for me its the perfect type of name unusual but not weird traditional but not overused..##good choice imo
