ok...please be honest :^) Do not be afraid to hurt my feelings...lol What do you think of the name Zander?

It has actually become pretty popular. I've also seen it spelled Xander (from Alexander). Would I put it on my kid? Probably not. Would I think it weird if you put it on your kid? Heck no!

I like it a lot! But when I mentioned it to my hubby for our baby, he vetoed it.

I like it much more as a nickname. What about Alexander nn Xander? Or, Xavier for a similar feel.

I think its cute.
I prefer names that aren't strange (causing the kid to get made fun of in school) but aren't common (one of 900 kids in the school with the same name).
Ex: My son's name is Roman. Its not abnormal, but its far from overused.

I don't like Xander or Alex as nn but LOVE Alexander I know one wee Zander his parents tossed up between Xander and Zander and went with Xander.

I love it. I would have used it me self, if I had lived in an English talking part of the world.

I *LIKE* IT! Pair it with a simple, common, american middle name and you're set! I bet he'd be the only one in his entire school with that name... and since it is so close to Alexander, and Xander, people won't go "what?! how'd you come up with that!? It's weird" LOL

I love the name Zander or Xander. This was a name my husband and I toyed with but decided on a different name. I say go with it.

I really like it

I know a couple Xanders, but I like Zander better :)

I like it and I actually know a really handsome guy with that name.

I LOVE the name Xander but my best friends' son is named that so I can't use it. ;)

I would name the kid "Alexander" and nickname him Zander.

Oh that was the name I wanted for my baby (if this one is a boy), except spelled Xander. I adore the name, but my husband said he would see Vin Diesel in XXX every time he said it so he ruled it out. I am very disappointed, but what to do!

I don't like it. Reminds me of dander.
