My husband likes the name 'Stellan' for our baby boy. I like it but was surprised he did! What do you guys think? It's Stellan or Alex - very undecided. hmm

Don't like it sorry. But I expect you'll get a mixed bag of likes and dislikes.
Alex is nice though

Is your DH a fan of the Skarsgards? grin

Bondixx Mon 07-Sep-15 23:04:01

He isn't necessarily a fan, Cerseirys, but I am!! Lol. grin

Sound like my ex trying to pronounce what he'd been drinking after a massive weekend session.

Stellan just makes me think of Stalin. Like my brain is trying to auto correct.

wickedlazy Mon 07-Sep-15 23:10:44

I think once I got used to it, I would like it though.

Sophronia Mon 07-Sep-15 23:33:33

It makes me think of Stollen grin

I like it!

Is it Greek? It goes with Stavros in my head. Stavros and his brother Stellan.

I like it, but also a skarsgard fan lol

LoveAGoodRummage Tue 08-Sep-15 09:06:25

I actually rather like it! Depends on how it sounds with your last name though.

StormCoat Tue 08-Sep-15 09:06:29

Skarsgaard. Or is it Skaarsgard?

I like it, but I think the total effect might depend a lot on the surname.

Cerseirys Tue 08-Sep-15 09:24:40

No, it's just Skarsgård - you're thinking of the actor Peter Sarsgaard!

StormCoat Tue 08-Sep-15 09:40:16

I am, thanks! I saw his name on a film review once (maybe Boys Don't Cry.)and when I actually went to see it, was vaguely puzzled when the bloke from Breaking the Waves failed to appear... grin

YouBastardSockBalls Tue 08-Sep-15 09:43:56

Awful.

Makes me think of Stella.

BertrandRussell Tue 08-Sep-15 09:48:31

Depends what his last name would be.

Marcipex Tue 08-Sep-15 21:38:19

Awful, it's too near Stella.

RiverTam Tue 08-Sep-15 22:02:35

Stellan Skarsgard, woof! Alexander Skarsgard, double woof!

It's a lovely name (and has the benefit of actually being a name).

scatterthenuns Tue 08-Sep-15 22:24:09

I like it! Are you scandinavian?

aoife24 Wed 09-Sep-15 16:52:55

I like it and don't think you need to be Scandinavian to use it.

IlonaRN Sat 19-Sep-15 16:21:15

I quite like it, but I am Scandinavian smile

SuckingEggs Sat 19-Sep-15 16:24:39

He'll be called Stella at school...

MamaLazarou Sat 19-Sep-15 18:51:14

It's ok.

Smartiepants79 Sat 19-Sep-15 18:57:31

MUCH prefer Alex. And would save him a lifetime of people going ?Stellan? How do you spell that?
Can you tell I'm a traditionalist when it comes to names?
