there are wayyyyy too many comments on this XD

I want to name my daughter Emma, but I´d rather go for Emily. (Emma as a nickname)

I love how easy it is to say, yet I´m not too keen on names with only one syllable :/

Emma is cute, yet way too unoriginal. (I do love Emma Watson and Emma Stone)

Where I live it´s quite generic.
I know a girl named Antonia.
She´s rude and slutty.
She got three tattoos when she was a kid and she hooked up with older guys.
She ruined my best friend´s relationship with her boyfriend and she gossiped a lot.
When she was barely a teenager (13-14) she got drunk and smoked.
Overall a really cheap and not at all classy.

That´s sad, because I used to love the name, but now it instantly reminds me of her.

I go to high-school with this girl named Lillian.
She was the first Lillian I ever met, yet she ruined the name for me.
She was the meanest, pettiest, rudest, most violent and phony girl I ever met. She bullied everyone in school and played the victim. She ruined my best friend´s birthday and ruined my relationship with my old friends (and my ex).

Every time I think of the name Lillian I feel a sour taste in my mouth, It irritates me. It reminds me of all the stress she put in my life.

Overall, Lillian was really mean and selfish. She would always complain about her siblings and hurt them. She backstabbed me and my two best friends too many times.

Also, she´d get PHYSICALLY agressive when you called her by her full name (Lillian),she would only respond to her nickname "Lilly" (Yet nobody called her Lily because she was so annoying that people would treat her like a stranger) (since nicknames are usually used to call people you´re close to).

DISCLAIMER: I am fully aware that my experience with this girl named Lillian doesn´t mean it will be the same with everyone, but i´m sharing my own personal opinion/experience.

I love this name. I li.e Emily as well, I like it a lot, but it's a bit overlooked, even though here in Poland it's not used, so I can imagine how overlooked it might be for some people in english-speaking countries. Emelie is much more original for me and is a very sweet, gentle name. When I think of this name I see a calm person, introverted, down-to-earth, but also who likes to dream, a bit of a loner, artsy creature, especially very musical, lover of beauty, very sensitive, vulnerable and enigmatic lady. She's medium high, slim, has long, black hair, likes dark colours, has blue eyes and pale complexion, may have a little Gothic, but also elegant and refined style, she's very girly.

I believe it´s awesome.
I think it´s the perfect combination of sexy and cute.
Also, there are so many nickname options, it´s the best!
My friends call me Penny, and although I love the nickname, I wish my friends would use all the nicknames!(I just believe there are so many options that it´s worth giving them all a try!)

Everything from the name´s history, to the pronounciation, to the spelling of it is simply beautiful, the only downside is the Kardashians had to use it, *sigh*. Since my name is also Penelope, I would feel proud of having a "unique" name (since everyone else had names like Sophie, Bella, Hannah, etc...) DON´T get me wrong, those are beautiful names, yet more generic. Therefore, I´d feel special.
With the Kardashian´s "class" it really ruined the name for me. Kourtney said she picked the name because "it just came to her mind". She didn´t have any knowledge on the story behind the name, and she just picked it randomly, which (sadly) made the name SUPER popular (Currently in spot #36)

I only feel comforted about being born over a decade before the new Kardashian. That way, I don´t have to worry about it sounding like a copy XD

This name has that ring to it that commands respect. Great for firstborn children, even though it's traditionally given to the eighth born in a family. "Tavi" or "Tav" would be good nicknames for a name as strong as this one.

I like the name, to be fair it is my name. I am not a drug dealer, that has a lot of kids. Quite the opposite, I was in the ARMY for 12 years, then went on to work at NASA for five years. I currently own an investment firm. Me(I) and my one wife have 2 kids and 7 years of marriage. My name has open more doors for me than it has shut. The only ones that did not like my name did not like my skin, but that does not stop them from wanting me to teach them about investments.

I like this name. I really do, but I think it's one of the few girl names out there that save the meaning could fit a boy no problem. I'm one of those people that's fine with gender-neutral names, and even irrelevant meanings, so, while I'm aware of how people respond to that kind of thing it seems like a rare enough name. Maria was unasex, and Allison is now, and Ima name a character Tanith!

ANASTASIA  added 10/15/2017, 9:29:28 PM by RedSoxGirl81
This beautiful name Anastasia is used for the main female character in the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy book series and it’s movie series all of which is created and produced by it’s author E.L. James.
The male lead, Christian Grey, falls for a 21 year old college student whose full name is Anastasia Rose Steele. Also, in both the books and the movies we see Christian, along with her fellow friends & family, call her by her nickname Ana, which she likes to be called instead of her full name Anastasia.
I never noticed this name before I read all 3 books and it happily made me fall in love with this name. It’s old school and traditional while also remaining new and different. Just love this name! Beautiful

My name is Maura, pronounced like Laura with an M. I disliked my name as a child. I was teased “Maura the moron” every day for years. Parents, I would not recommended this name - even though I’m relatively happy with my name now as an adult. The one good thing about my name is that it’s unique, I love being the only “me” in a large group of people.

In my opinion, the association with Nabokov is overblown. But unfortunately, it has other associations which may not be suitable for a young girl, such as the name Lola, a lollipop or a "lalka" (which is a Slavic name for a doll). Having said that, this may be a good name for a young woman who's not afraid to confront stereotypes.

Wow, there are some pretty salty people here who are down voting any comments about Blake being a girls name as well. I personally like it both as a girls name and a boys name. It's a solid, strong name for either.

If you name enthusiasts haven't noticed, people have been giving their daughters names that have "traditionally" been male for decades. That makes it a unisex name.

MARGARET  added 10/15/2017, 9:49:39 AM by Anonymous User
Interesting that the comments from 12 years ago are more heavily critical; responses seem to be more positive on average as you get to more recent comments. Sound bias in names goes through trends and we've been in a very "vowel happy" period for a while (lots of "Evie's," "Ella's," "Abby's," "Ava's," sort of names). Perhaps stronger consonant sounds are starting to be a little refreshing. I've heard a lot more baby names that seem to hint at that--parents around me have chosen: Gus, Gretchen (x2), Gwendolyn, Agnes, Dolores (although goes by Lola), Magnolia, Dorothy, Arthur and Ruth.

My daughter IS a six (well, almost six) and named Margaret. And called Margaret in full. No one seems bothered by this; if anything, they're usually pleasantly surprised and appreciative because so many people have a beloved grandmother that was Margaret! It seems to"fit" her and her youth just fine, and frankly, these days in a classroom filled with "Axel" and "Pantera" (yes, these are actual names in her class!) 'unusual' is the new norm as far as her contemporaries go. We chose it to honor our own grandmothers that we loved dearly, but we also liked it because:
- it's classic, but not overused these days
- it ages well and won't be an issue professionally
- there's a ton of nicknames that she could choose from if she decides she wants to express her identity differently
- it has a fascinating, cool history

So, yeah--I'm obviously Team Margaret! Not a name for everyone (no name is), but I still think it's a solid choice. If you're thinking about it but can't picture it on a little kid, I'm here to tell you that my little one has it and it complements her well.

ADÈLE  added 10/15/2017, 8:04:15 AM by arrowhead909
This was a common name among 10th-12th century queens and other nobles in present-day France, such as Adela of France (ca 1009-1079) (Latinized version of Adèle de France), mother-in-law of William the Conqueror through her daughter, Matilda of Flanders. Others include Adela/Adèle of Champagne (ca 1140-1206), third wife of King Louis VII, Adèle de Meaux (ca 934-984), wife of Geoffrey Greymantle, Adèle de Vermandois (bef 915-960), wife of Arnulf I of Flanders, and Adèle de Normandie (ca 1067-1137), daughter of William the Conqueror and Matilda of Flanders.

ELLIE  added 10/14/2017, 3:44:27 PM by Anonymous User
I love the name Ellie. I don't mind it as a full name, even though I personally just can't imagine an adult woman with this name, but probably just because I don't know any Ellies and it does sound a little bit childish to me as a full name, so if I would use it, I'd just call her something longer and then call her Ellie. I can't say Ellie's not serious as a full name, but just not very my style. I like its oldfashioned feel as a nickname, as a nickname it's a very elegant to me, sweet and cute. I like almost all names with el anywhere in them, maybe even all of them and I could easily use Ellie as a nickname for any of them or maybe even for some names just with L, especially at the beginning. I like it also spelled as Elly, Eli, Elli or maybe something else, but I don't particularly like Ellea/Elea, Ellee/Elee, Elie and, to be honest, I actually hate forms like Elley/Eley/Elleigh/Eleigh or any like these. Just, hmmm, way too modern for me I guess. I'll associate it forevrer with Ellie Goulding (btw I love it as a short form of Elena as in her case), I like her a lot, with Ellie from Jacqueline Wilson's series for girls and with Ellie from Meg Cabot's "Avalon High". When I think of this name I see a little girl, who's a bit spoiled, but not mallicious or anything at all, just very loved by her parents, conscious of her worth, maybe a bit egocentric, but not like always thinking of herself. She can be very sweet, almost angelic, she's generally a balanced and quiet, but not a shy child. She's very sensitive and can be empathetic. She is short, has a bit curly, dark brown hair, I'm not sure what's the colour of her eyes and as a child she's quite fluffy. Then I can also imagine a very smart teenager, very girly, but good at sports as well, not very popular at scfool, but likeable and a good student, fun-loving, although needs some time just on her own, likes drawing, singing, shopping and hanging out with friends. That's just how I see Ellie in general.

If your only issue with the name Troy is the fact that there was a character in High School Musical with this name, that's terrible. That's like saying you can't name your child Gabriella because she's the main female protagonist. My best friend's name is Gabriella and honestly, when I first met her, (I'd never met another Gabriella) my first thought was, "Like the high school musical character?" But no one ever did or would pick on her.
