What do you think about the name Armand?



We've already got a solid Top 4 that we've been working with, but Armand has recently entered into our radar, and I'm interested in hearing others thoughts about this name.

At first when I read it I thought it was pronounced like ARM-and but that's just my own stupidity. But it's pronounced ar-mand right? Is that a Spanish name? Are you Spanish yourselves? Or just like ethnic names? If you guys love it then go for it but watch out for the stupid ones like myself that will think its arm-and at first.

I love it. It's my great-grandpas name and if our last had been a boy, it would have been his name.

It's pronounced arm-OHND (similar to how you expressed it as ar-mond). It's actually the French version of the Old German name Herman. Armando is the Spanish version, which is probably the most commonly heard version in the US, which is probably why is seems like a Spanish name to you.

I am officially pronunciation retarded. I'm sorry.

It's okay. It isn't a name I would use, but there's nothing wrong with it.
