Comments on Dorian:

I, personally, think Dorian is a brilliant name. I’ve loved it since reading Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde about five years ago. It was a brilliant book and I fell in love with the name. It’s uncommon without being too “out there”, it’s strong, masculine and I nearly always love literature names. 10/10.

Dorian is a wonderful name in my opinion. It is rich in Ancient history. It also has a wonderful sound to it as well. This is a favorite of mine.
