The name Damon is associated with loyalty. Actor Matt Damon’s friendship with Ben Affleck is the real deal, and so was the friendship between Greek mythological figures Damon and Pythias, who always had each other’s backs. The simple name grew in popularity, starting in 2009, when 'The Vampire Diaries' TV series featured a main character named Damon. And actor/comedian Damon Wayans is so loyal to his name, he passed it on to his son!
