What do you think of the name Sean?

How would you imagine a person with that name?


Don't you think about the soldier?

    Sean is a male given name of Irish inception. Its right Irish spelling is Seán ([ʃɔːnˠ]) or Séan ([ʃeːnˠ]), while a more established structure is Seaghán or Seaġán. It is the Irish spelling of the Biblical name John. The Norman-French Jehan (see Jean) is another variant. ... For a rundown of individuals with the given name, see List of individuals named Sean.

    Nice, strong male name. Come immediately to think of Sean Connery.

    My son’s name is Sean. I was surprised that he has rarely come across another Sean at school or now at work.

    No it does not make me think about a soldier.

    It's an Irish name, and fairly trendy.  Makes me think of a hipster - someone in skinny jeans with long shaggy hair and glasses who's into soccer and hacky sack.  Probably majoring in Literature.

    I think of Sean Connery.  I continue to think of him.  Then, after ten minutes of visualizing him, I wish that other Seans and Shawns resembled him. Then I return to mundane life.

    It is an Irish or Scots masculine name.

    A name cannot remind a person of a trade or profession. Well, it could if it was Carpenter, Smith, Roper, Sergeant / Sargent or an occupational name in another language. I suppose "Oliver Cromwell" or "Colin Powell" would call up the face of a particular general,  but "Oliver" or "Colin" would not say "soldier" to me.

    Sean Connery may call up "James Bond" to most people, but neither "Sean" or "James" say "spy".  "Sean" calls up a particular actor, but "Donald" calls up "Donald Duck", "Donald Trump", "Old Macdonald", and several Dons I know, not just the actor Donald Sutherland. So "actor" will call up Sean and Donald; but their first names alone won't call up "actor"
