"We named our little boy Duncan Alexander. Duncan is a very Scottish name, and is becoming more popular. I think Duncan Alexander sounds intelligent and classy without being stuffy. Everyone loves his name and says it suits him well. :)" Mar. 30, 2009:
"My husband's family is of Scottish, Irish, Manx and English descent. We wanted a name that would reflect that heritage to go along with the last name. Our son was born in 1998. He fits his name very well. Everyone we meet loves the name." Sep. 3, 2007:

"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:
