My great grandpas name was Van so I grew up hearing it. I am pregnant t with a bit and want to name my son that! My husband loves the name too. It's my first choice. It's unique without being too weird and It's a strong name and sounds cool.

My son who just turned two is named Vance but we call him Van for short. I love his name and get nothing but great feedback about it. My only problem is coming up with a brother name just in case we have another. I also have a daughter named Aurora.hope my kids continue to love their names

My name is Van, and i've had varying reactions when I tell people my name. Some think I'm saying Dan or Vance. I end up telling them, "Van! Y'know, like you drive?" and make a gesture like I'm turning a steering wheel. Othe's, once they get to know me, jokingly call me Truck or SUV. Van is a unique name, so when someone calls it out, I know they're talking about me.

My son's name is Van Edward. I love it - it is strong, masculine, and unusual without being weird or odd. His girlfriend adores it as well. Whenever I tell people his name I get positive replies. I'd recommend having a middle name with more than one syllable to offset the'shortness of "Van." Since it ends in a consonant it has a short clipped sound and sounds good with a longer middle name.

My husband and I are huge Van Morrison fans. We danced our first dance at our wedding to "Crazy Love" by Van of course we named our son Van. We get tons of compliments on how unique it is. However, people often call him Ben or Dan and we have to correct them. :)

Our son's name is Van Eben Ray. We couldn't decide on a name for our baby boy and the moment he was born, my husband said, "Van" and I agreed as we both love Van Morrison and wanted a unique but simple masculine name. It's perfect with his middle names too, which is after both of our Grandfathe's on the paternal side. he's our Lil Van Man!
