d'Artagnan

I love it! It's one of my guilty pleasure names, I would never use it, but I love the sound of it. Haven't met one yet.

as a first name?

I thought D'Artagnan was a last name (as in the Three Musketeers) ....

Yes as first name. And yes from the musketeers movie ❤

Only if you've read the book.

Doesn't matter how you spell it I think it's terrible. DH loves it as a name but I've never had anyone react positively to it.

Wasn't D'artagnan  the surname?

Yes.

Then that way you would know a) how it is spelled and b) that it is a surname.

After that... carry on as you wish!

Definitely spell it D'Artagnan if you are going to use it.

#11 Mumma Mash

Posted 10 January 2013 - 11:32 AM

Aren't most names these days last names? Ie Madison, Langdon etc...?

I love the name but would never be allowed to use it as DH doesn't fancy it.

My mother used to get a giggle about the fact that people began calling their daughters Tennille, when The Captain and Tenille were popular, because Tennille was her surname.  Her name was Toni.

I like quite a lot of elaborate names but this one is too OTT. For me it's in the same vein as calling a child O'Sullivan or McDonald or something similar, none of which appeal to me.

Ummmm, no.

This,

It is a surname and while some surnames have crossed over to first names this is not one of them.

No, let the kid call himself that when he is carrying out imaginative play. Don't saddle him with it as a first name.

Do you even know the story or his full name?



#17 Gudrun

A swashbuckler and an appealing one at that.  Unless the name is in your ancestry somewhere though I would think it was tipping into try-hard as a first name. I would love the flourish for a MN and you could derive the kid's NN from it.


ETA That second spelling is a no-no IMO.

Hi there,

Not a fan of it as a first name sorry.  Maybe as a middle name if it has special meaning for you?

If you are looking for a theatrical/literary name perhaps Dante, Balthazar, Benedict, Montgomery, Raphael, Benedict, Dashiell, Rafferty, Darcy, Tristan...

Good luck!

I know a D'Artagnan and he is teased mercilessly because of it.


Me too.

I know someone who changed his last name to this though, its a much better fit as a last name.

If you love the character so much why not use his first name which (I think) was John?

How exactly do you pronounce it?  Never heard of it before.

It seems incredibly pretentious to me.
