  • "We live in the UK and called our son, now 8 years old, Duncan. He is the only Duncan in his school and although there are a few Duncan's in our village over 40 for a child of today it is very unusual. What is great about the name is that it is a name that everyone knows but it is still unusual." Jul. 18, 2010: Report as inappropriate
