"So demonic sounding- even if you haven't seen the Omen. My friend Damian's cool but when he was a kid he got into trouble a lot. But my cousin is a little monster- so...yeah. Damian is a scary name.

"I am a Damian and I don't like it - people still ruffle my hair looking for the 666 or make the sign of a cross (fortunately a lot less now than in the past). Very annoying." Mar. 25, 2008:
"Sorry, but after "The Omen" I wouldn't dare to call my child that (neither Damian or Damien). Obviously, I wouldn't worry about my son being a demon child or anything, but there is just far too much negativity associated with that name. Apart from that, I don't like that name at all."
