TRISTAN
Gender: Masculine
Usage: Welsh, English, French, Celtic Mythology
Pronounced: TRIS-tən (English), trees-TAWN (French)

From the Celtic name Drystan, which was probably derived from drest meaning "riot" or "tumult". The spelling has been altered by association with Latin tristis "sad". In Celtic legend Tristan was sent to Ireland in order to fetch Isolde, who was to be the bride of King Mark of Cornwall. Instead, Tristan and Isolde end up falling in love. Their tragic story was very popular in the Middle Ages, and the name has occasionally been used since that time.

I like Tristan but it's my ex-bf's name so I wouldn't use it.

I'm not a fan. I think the T part of it is a bit too harsh for the rest of the name, plus its so close to my name that it just seems really awkward to me.
