i am glad to hear everyone sticking up for this beautiful name! we wanted to name our son Damian as soon as i found out i was pregnant, but we chose to stay away from it for the steryotype. finally at about 6 months, after struggling to find a name we decided on Damian Spenser. of course i get comments from people but i tell them id rather have a name i love regaurdless of the meaning, rather than name my child a boring name because of the great reputation.
