I know someone who used this as a mn for their son. He is a real sweetheart :) Also a woman on another board named her son this recently. It's hard to say if it sounds trendy because I think it has elements that attract modern parents, yet it's not super common, yet. That probably doesn't help answer your question. You might get a better idea of trendiness if you ran a poll. Polls can be easier for people, sometimes.
