Cassius or Evan?

What do you think.
I'm now 36 weeks and up until now Evan was probably the only name we both liked. Once we found one we both agreed on we stopped thinking about it.
Then I heard Cassius the other day and now we both like that too! I think Cassius is more out there than Evan but I'd like to see what others think. Middle name will be Brian (family connection).
Ta! smile

Cassius. But I'm biased. wink

How about Cassian ?

Evan if you have the Welsh link. Doesn't Cassius mean hollow or shallow?

Thank you for the replies.
No Welsh link, didn't really think about that - is it important? I'm only saying because if Cassius is a firm no then Evan is all we've got!

How are you pronouncing Cassius?

Love the name Evan, it's at the top of my list for a boy (unfortunately not the top of DH's list - yet).

I like Cassian more than Cassius, and I think the shortening of Cass for both is quite cool.

I just looked up the meaning and Cassius does mean hollow - Cassian was mentioned and that's nice too.

Just realised a couple of you have suggested that! I'll suggest it to DP...

Evan - I have one 🙈

I prefer Evan.

But Cassius Brian is better than Evan Brian.

Cassius. I have one and we get lots of compliments on it.
