I prefer Cameron as a name but Kieran goes better with your surname.

Kieran... Cameron is still nice though!

Kieran goes better with your surname. Easier to say together.

Kieran Michaels just rolls off the tongue

I like both but I know a Cameron Michael so am compelled to vote for that. wink

We thought about Cameron but it had a strange meaning think it was bent nose?? It's a lovely name though

Doesn't the name Cameron have negative connotations for anyone except me?

MaisyPops Thu 16-Mar-17 20:49:22

Does for me too. Must just be the people we know called Cameron.

Personally I like Ciaran over Kieran too.

have to be careful saying you judge or have assumptions based on your experiences with names because theres another thread where people claim they never do it and people who do are mean

Do you mean, it makes you think of David Cameron? First thing I thought of!

Yes, our ex-PM.

2 syllables in forename does work better, but both are good names.

EasyBoySleazyJet Fri 17-Mar-17 10:11:13

Both are nice but Cameron is just too much associated with David Cameron now and that ain't a good thing

WankersHacksandThieves Fri 17-Mar-17 10:59:27

I prefer Ciaran but Cameron is nice too. Both go well with your surname.

I'd not associate Cameron with David Cameron at all, probably because I'm in Scotland and it's a popular first name and has been for many years so I associate it with the Camerons I know rather than DC.

Ciaran means the little dark one - I have a Ciar instead as he wasn't and isn't little. We have that name as when it came to the last two names on our list, DH wanted Ciaran and I wanted Keir. We compromised.

Kieran - but prefer the Ciaran spelling.

Cameron is nice too though.
