I named my son Tristan Orion. He's always been the happiest child, always smiling and laughing. Everyone loves his name. I don't think I could have picked a better one for him.

I think the name tristan is a great name for both boys and girls and u shouldn't care what someone thinks about u naming ur child this name because it's your child and u gave birth to him!!!!

I LOVE this name!!! Tristan is my aunt's FAVORITE boy name. Unfortunatly none of her kids like the name, so my sister and I promised her that one of us will have a Tristan for her.

After thinking about it, my sister and I discovered Tristan is perfect for one of our sons anyways. We want to name one of our sons after my Grandpa and Dad (both are named Stanley)but we don't like the name Stanley. We realized that Tristan can be divided meaning Stan the 3rd (Tri-Stan). Tristan's middle name is going to be Levi after my Grandpas middle name.

my name is trystan. im 16 yrs old. and yes im a girl.
ive always liked my name cuz not many people have it.
ive always been the only ''trystan'' at my schools and i like that cuz its different than everyones. im glad i wasnt named something like alexis, brittney,or ashlee becuz those are so common. ive always gotten lots of compliments on my name too. i dont fully live up to me name though; im not sad. but i am kinda loud :)..................

My name is Tristin and I am nineteen years old. I love my name and I have always thought it was more of a girls name. It is kind of annoying when people think I am a boy though, which they tend to think a lot. My name is Tristin Brooke though and my father named me after his best friend named Tristan who died in a car accident and she was a girl. So I personally think it's a girls name but can be both.
I love this name

I see this name more as a boy's name. When I hear the name "Tristan" I think of a prince. I don't know why. It's just a princy sounding name. I love it. If I have a son, I'm going to name him that.

There is also the name Tristana in Britanny, for a girl. What do you think of it ? It's the title of a famous song in France, by the singer Mylène Farmer.
My boy Tristan

I think Tristan is an awesome baby boy's name. My son is definately not sad though. He's a very happy little guy!
If I ever had a son, this would have been his name

I've loved the character Tristan from both legends, King Arthur and Tristan and Isolde. He was such a noble and heroic character. Great name!
