  • "We named our son Damien. I never saw that stupid movie, just as I never wasted time watching "Halloween" (for some reason "Michael" gets off the hook), nor did I see the Freddy Cruger movies, nor anything else. The most annoying comment I get is that we "just HAVE to see it," now that we've named our son this supposedly hideous name. Phonetically, it's beautiful. From it's Greek roots, it refers to strength, medicine, and taming (so I've read, and been told). The next person who refers to "The Omen;" I'll tell them I'm going to have my son set their house on fire with his brain. Is that what he did anyway?" Sep. 1, 2009: Report as inappropriate

I just can't picture an 80 year old Tyler or Cody or Brayden. Anyway, I did research on the name, and tho it is Greek, it also has ties to Irish (which I am).

  • "I love the name Damien although when you tell someone you're thinking of naming your child that, you might get the same looks I did. Everyone remembers Damien the creepy kid in the Omen. For people who have asked about the storyline it's "set in Fulham, England, tells of the childhood of Damien Thorn, who was switched at birth with the supposedly stillborn child of a wealthy American diplomat with only the husband's knowledge, in order to keep it from affecting his wife. Damien's family is unaware that he is actually the offspring of Satan and destined to become the Antichrist." But I agree with the comment left by someone else before, just because you name your kid Damien doesn't mean he's the antichrist or spawn of satan. It's just a name used by a movie. They could have just as soon named the boy in the movie David or Jon." Oct. 28, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love the name Damien -- it's masculine and strong, and anyone who dislikes it solely because some ridiculous movie character had the same name isn't worth a moment of your time. Might as well shy away from names like Carrie, Freddy, and Jason as well. My uncle's name is Adolf and he's gotten grief all his life for sharing Hitler's name... but at least that was a real person, not some imaginary evil from a MOVIE.

I think it is a nice and unique name although many people pull faces when she tells him his name and again refer to the omen but damian is also the name of a patron saint and the singer damien rice is also famous for his relaxing music and doesn't seem devilish to me! so if your thinking about that name go or it! some people find faults with any name but in the end people will get over it and if it is the name you like thats all that counts."

So here i am in labor christmas eve and they are trying to tell me to change my sons name. The name that i have had picked out for months, because of the day god chose to bring my son in to this world, and the stereotyping that goes along with having that name. I think Damien is an excellent name and am very proud to call my son by this name.

I have been called the devil, omen, demon, etc. Anything that is associated with evil is automatically paired with my name. However in reality, my name means ruler. I am a genuine sweet heart that is on the side of light workers. I am a healer not a destroyer. I believe in God, love, life and happiness. You people must learn how to deprogram your minds from all that indoctrinating bullcrap from Hollywood and its sick agendas and deception.

  • "Just for kicks, my name is Damian, I was born on Friday the 13th, one week late. If I was born on time I would have been born on the 6/6/86... would have been more dramatic in '66 but you know... And no. I'm not cursed or unlucky or the antichrist or anything like that."

  • "My name is Damien,I was born in 1954, before the film my name was unpronuncable to people, now its ok , if your surname is difficuly please do not name your son Damien as an obvious nick name will not be obvious to his peers and he could end up with something worse. I thought I had got over the exorcist and then the omen to find that a transvestite had had a hit with "lets do the time warp again" The years have gone by and now people can say my name ok without checking my head for 666. I have given my children common names so as to avoid the problems I suffered." Oct. 11, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm a Charles, and think it's kinda cool the name was made popular by the "Child's Play" movies, as in Charles Lee Ray the deranged goofball who, by means of voodoo, transmutes his soul into the murderous doll Chucky. Get real, it's only a movie that, in the course of it's sequels, has become a horror camp cult classic. Yes, I like films like this but I'm by no means a whack job. Heck, better I spend my time watching films and reading the novelizations of 'em rather than be on the streets causing trouble. Whenever someone asks if I'm the guy from the movie I usually get a "chuckle" out of it and, depending on the context of the situation, may or may not say that I am ... all in good fun."

  • "I'm 6 mo. pregnant and my husband picked the name Damien for our son. It's grown on me and I love it! We've only had a few negative responses, but I told them it has nothing to do with the devil and shut them up by reminding them of the famous Belgium priest Father Damien who will be recognized as a saint this Oct. by the Catholic church."

  • "Hi I am 7 months pregnant, with a boy and my husband and I are having a hard time deciding on a name. My husband really likes Damian, but everytime I mention the name people give me a weird look and say doesn't that mean the devils son?? I am just afraid that my son will be teased for having the name Damian, but after reading this I can see there are a lot of Damian's out there that love their name. I'm still unsure about the whole thing, but that is the only name that really sticks out in my head when I think of my baby to be. ." Feb. 25, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I FEEL THAT SOME INDIVIDUALS NAME THEIR CHILD THIS BECAUSE THEY SIMPLY LOVE THE NAME, OR PERHAPS THEY ARE GREEK, WHICH IS WHERE THE NAME DAMIEN DERIVES FROM. THE OTHER SANARIO MAY BE THAT THE PERSON OR PEOPLE THAT NANE THEIR CHILD DAMIEN MAY HAVE DABBELED IN THE DARK SIDE AND THEY THEMSELVES IN THEIR OWN DEVIOUS MINDS MAY NON-CHRISTIAN SATANISTS SEARCHING FOR A WAY TO IMPOSE SOME AREA OF REBELLION. THEY USE THEIR OWN CHILD AS A WEAPON IN AN ATTEMPT TO PROVE SOMETHING THAT EXHISTS IN THEIR OWN CRAZY MIND AND SICK WORLD, HAVING NO CONSIDERATION FOR WHAT THEIR OWN CHILD MAY HAVE TO GO THROUGH IN LIFE JUST BECAUSE THEY HAVE A NUT CASE FOR A PARENT. UNFORTUNATELY, I KNOW SOMEONE LIKE THAT WITH A VERY DARK SIDE AND IN VARIOUS WAYS HE HAS PROVEN NOT TO BE A STABLE PERSON. I BELIEVE HE NAMED HIS SON DAMIEN FOR ALL THE WRONG REASONS. IF THIS BE THE CASE, HE MAY HAVE BITEN OFF MORE THAN HE CAN CHEW. I BELIEVE IT ALL DEPENDS ON A PERSON'S REASON OR MOTIVE FOR CHOOSING THIS NAME. THOSE WHO HAVE THIS NAME, AND LIKE THEIR NAME, AND HAVE HAD NO PROBLEMS IN THEIR OWN LIVES BECAUSE OF THEIR NAME BEING DAMIEN, ARE FORTUNATE AND MORE POWER TO YOU. ON THE OTHER HAND, I AM SURE THERE ARE CHILDREN AND ADULTS WITH THIS NAME THAT WOULD NOT AGREE WITH YOU AND EVEN ARGUE THE POINT THAT THE NAME DAMIEN MAY HAVE CAUSED THEM SOME OBSTICALS AND PROBLEMS THEY COULD HAVE DONE WITHOUT. THIS ESPICALLY APPLIES TO BOYS WHO MAY NOT QUITE FIT IN TO OR ARE OUTCASTS IN SOCIETY TO BEGIN WITH FOR WHATEVER THE REASON. THEY MAY HAVE HAD PROBLEMS REGARDLESS OF THEIR DAMIEN NAME, BUT THE NAME MAY CAUSE THEM EVEN MORE PROBLEMS TEASING, AND OBSTICALS IN THEIR LIFE. SURE THAT ASSOCIATE THE NAME WITH THE MOVIE ARE IGNORANT, BUT THE FACT REMAINS THAT IT OFTEN IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE MOVIE AND AN EVIL CHILD. THERE ARE PLENTY OF NICE NAMES TO CHOOSE FROM.

  • "I absolutely love the name Damien. It's my boyfriend's name and I think that our names sound very nice together: Damien and Olivia. For some reason when I tell people his name they seem to think that he is African American...but I have no idea where that notion came from. It is a very strong and attractive name, although, like all people with that name there comes the stupid "son of the devil" association; needless to say many others tell me that they love the name. They're just jealous that their parents didn't think of it for them :)" Jan. 17, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Hey My other half really wants to call our (hopefully) son to be Damien, but Im not sure. I didnt want it to be constantly compared to the Omen, and I was always under the impression it meant Demon, even before Id seen the omen, and name meanings are important to me. I think I might go with it now though. :D Just on another note - if its a girl we're going with Brooke. :) xx" Nov. 4, 2007: Report as inappropriate
