I read a book by jude deveraux and the lead (female) charactor was a woman named Douglas. I decided that was what I would name my baby. When I had a boy, he got the name Douglas, because I loved it either way!! JA

I'm a Douglas! I think I was named after Gen. Douglas MacArthur. I didn't like it when I was younger, but I have grown'to love it. I probably didn't like it as a kid because it now seems to be a more mature name. But if I have a boy, I don't think I'll name him Douglas.

I'm a Douglas who moved to Spain in 1995. I was surprised to see that there was a popular brand of brand of chewing gum sold here called "Douglas". I haven't seen it in a while, though. The Douglas cosmetics stores are very popular in Spain (and, I beli've, in all of Europe). The company was founded in Germany 199 years ago by a Scottish I'migrant named John Sharp Douglas. Here in Spain people pronounce my name "DOO-glahs" or, if they know a bit of English, "DAH-glahs". There never was a Saint Douglas, so there is no official or unofficial translation of the name to Spanish.

A strong name - with an ancient feel. Conjures mountains, water, adventure and the far horizon. Wire strung harps echo in its sound - and the roar of the ocean on northern shores. HeroI'm haunts it and destiny awaits the boy so named. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
