    I like Adam.  Tristan sounds like a girl’s name to me.

    I may be biased with my love of good strong Irish names, but I loooove Tristan.

    Tristan makes me think of Tristan & Isolde… as in a very old name, if that’s what you like. I don’t think it’s feminine though (unlike a PP), I do think of it as a boy’s name – one of my brother’s teenage friends is named Tristan but that’s the only kid I know with the name.

    I don’t like the name because I have connections to a Tristan who I don’t like haha.

    But I think it’s a good soild name, with no silly nicknames or anything. Just make sure your last initial isn’t going to give him a weird mongram, like TAR or TAX. I like it.

    Aw the first boy I ever had a crush on (I was 5!) was named Tristan, so I’ve always had a soft spot for it!

    I’ve known two Tristans in my life. Both were female. One was a complete biotch and so the name leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    I like the name Adam though.

    I love the name Tristan, but it does sound a bit romance novelly!! Beautiful choice though, and I think Tristan Adam has a nice ring to it.

    I think when you ask people “do you like this” they really answer “would you pick this name yourself”. I do like the name. It sounds romantic. It sounds like he’s going to be swashbuckling and also a bit sensitive poet. Or maybe just a guy with really good hair who looks nice in jeans.

    I like it. That was Brad Pitts characters name in one of my fav movies, Legends of the Fall.

    Love it! I like names that are traditional but not overly popular
