Comments on Conan:

As of right now, this seems to be one of the only names my husband and I can agree on. We both rather like it. It’s not my favorite name, but it’s definitely grown on me and I’d love to use it sometime if we have another son. The “barbarian” and “O’Brien” references do not bother us at all.

The only problem I’ve encountered with this name is that no one else seems to be ‘head over heels’ for it. When asking around about the name pretty much all the responses were “I don’t like it, but I don’t hate it.” I think it’s a name that doesn’t jump out at you, but will grow on you in time.
