Comments for CRYSTAL:

I know a great deal of people with the name "Crystal", and each and every one of them spells it differently. It can also mean many things like "ice" and "Christ". This name symbolizes a lot of things.

A famous bearer of this name is country singer Crystal Gayle (though her real name is Brenda Gail Webb).

A name that is generally thought to be very trendy and dated but it has actually been in use for quite a while. It didn't become hugely popular until the 1960's and 70's though. I think it makes a nice middle name.

I was named this and suffered with it. I went to school with 20 of them and it was so unoriginal. I had to start calling myself Criss just so I could get an identity of my own. I absolutly hate it, now my children have to suffer with extremely unique names - Brianna Phoenix Lyon and Pinkston Rhys. It wouldn't have been so bad if the name hadn't been so popular in the 80's.

My name is Crystal. I even spell it the same way. I don't really like my name, so my closest friends call me by my name in Japanese once in awhile, or they call me by other nicknames.

My name is Crystal, spelled the same, pronounced the same, just plain old me. I go to school with at least 1 or more other Crystals in each class. Kinda boring name if you ask me.
-- red446  4/27/2006
I can't say Crystal is one of my favorite names either, it is overused and boring.

Everyone I have known named Crystal has been lower-class and uneducated. I don't think it gives a child much to live up to.

Crystal--spelled the *correct* way--is my name, and it was annoying to have a name that was both weird and extremely popular (I was born in the eighties, so, yeah). I've kind of learned to live with it--it's strange that now I'm in college I don't see so many Crystals? Trailer-trash or stripper name? They didn't like it and go by another name?

I hate Crys, Cryssie, all that stuff much worse than Crystal, though. The only sort of nickname I've had for Crystal is boyfriends calling me Rystal --it's weird but not horrible like Crissy (Three's Company, anyone?), any other Crystals get that?

At least my name's not Khristall or some crap, though.

A famous bearer is model, Crystal Renn.

This is my name. At first, when I was a kid, I hated it because I was called Crystal the Pistol, sissy crissy, and of course they made fun of my last name too, which isn't even unusual. Now, I like my name. I think its pretty, feminine and describes me well. Another meaning of the name is "Pure, sparkling; transparent; a gem". I feel that I live up to my name. A name is what you make it. I at one time had 3 other friends with this name all spelled differently, and we used to have fun with it. It is not stripperish or trailer-trash, unless that is the kind of person you are. Many people tell me this is a beautiful name and they really like it.

My name is Crystal Grace, and my first name bothers me. A lot. I love being unique, but everywhere you go, if there isn't someone named Crystal, there's Chris, Christina, Kristen, Krista, Christine, and the like. I haved learned to answer to any of the above names as people oftentimes insist on getting it wrong. The times they are correct, they proceed to spell it Khristyle, and other assorted variants. Very annoying name to have.
-- Anonymous User  6/13/2006
I could definitely see that this name was very popular around the time I was born. Now, if you name your baby this, this name just sounds odd. Still like it though!
-- Bethanee_1991  7/23/2006
We used to call the school bully, whose name was Crystal 'Pissy Crissy'. Even though I have a step-sister named Crystal, and she is a sweeheart, she's the exception, most of the Crystals I've met are low-class and Crystal isn't even their real name.
-- whitedotblackdot  7/26/2006
Crystal is my name and I absolutely adore it! I'm so happy my family gave me this name. I think it reminds me of purity, snow, faeries and magic. It's so bright and whimsical. Very fitting for me, I think. I agree I have met a lot of "trailer trash" types with this name, but I happen to be in grad school working on my masters in psychology so not all of us are strippers LOL! As for the girl who prefers to be called by her Japanese version, actually in Japanese the direct translation of Crystal is "Suishou" (pronounced: "swee show") and in Chinese it is "Shui Ting" ("shway ting").
-- childdoll  9/12/2006
I love the name Crystal since it is my name. All of my friends wish they had my name because their names are really common like Lauren. I love my name and nobody that I know of has it because it is unique.
-- k9lover  11/24/2006
I can't truthfully say I like this name. It's cute on a small child, but silly on an adult. So many goofy nicknames. It makes me think of a dumb blond type of person. (To all blonds out there, no offense. I'm blond myself!)
-- Petroushka  3/5/2007
I love the Japanese version, it's so cute. But the girls that hate their name I feel sorry for you guys because this is my name too and I love it and so many people wish they had it.
-- Anonymous User  4/16/2007
For some reason it seems very childish to me, not a good name for a grown woman. But at least it's not Krystyl or anything weird and horrible like that.

Crystal is the lastest book by Katie Price (aka Jordan).
-- Anonymous User  7/2/2007
Crystal not only means 'ice', but also can be translated to mean 'brilliantly clear' or 'brilliantly pure'. I think someone with this name would be pure of heart and wears her heart on her sleeve or is transparent.

I think the name is very feminine and gives a child something to live up to, as to be pure in an unpure world. This name is classic and classy as it has been around for centuries, it has character and history behind it.
-- sarahlauren  9/21/2007
Ug- another lower class, trailer-park type name. Hello parents- this is a stripper name! Don't name your daughters Crystal!
-- johann14  10/1/2007
Gorgeous and classy name. Leaves all the other jewel and gem names in its wake.
-- Anonymous User  10/2/2007
I disagree that Crystal has more appeal than other jewel names. Ruby, for example, seems a more spirited and colorful name by far. Crystal is so bland and characterless.
-- Anonymous User  3/14/2008
Crystal is not a trailer-trash name! Perhaps some people with it have been horrible like that, but it isn't necessarily that way. Also, Crystal may mean clear-headed or pure.
-- ylaraniala  3/22/2008
I like this name spelt this way. Spelling it other ways just looks trashy.
-- number1212  6/18/2008
I think this name became popular because of a T.V. show called 'Dallas'. It sounds pretty, but it makes me think that those who would name their daughter Crystal were hoping they could afford some.
-- KayeKiLa  8/13/2008
Cough Cough. WHITE TRASH! STRIPPER ALCHOHOLIC CHAINSMOKER NAME! (along with Brandi) It sounds so not pretty and feminine.
-- becca_marciano  3/4/2009
I actually like this name a lot. It has a nice ring to it and it is pretty because it reminds me of *Crystal*.
-- kool_babe14  5/8/2009
I want to like this name. I want to think of those gorgeous Swarovski Crystals when I hear this name, but instead--and no offense to all Crystals out there! (And I seriously hope this doesn't get my post reported)--instead this name makes me think of cocaine and meth. (Slightly off-topic, but has "ice"--this name's meaning--ever been a street name for either drug?)
-- erb816  2/3/2010
Makes me think people are naming their kid after their punch bowl or wine goblets. Like they wanted an expensive trendy sort of name, but they tried too hard, and ended up with cheap-sounding one. There is such a thing as being too literal.
-- JW41926  5/4/2010
My name is Crystal & I love it. I have met one other Crystal & her name was spelled with a K. I don't think Crystal is a strippers name and have never been teased about it. It is a beautiful name that means clear and pure.
-- CrystalJean  6/27/2010
I wouldn't use this. I know a guy who got the teasing of his life after he took a liking to a Krystal (and then, we didn't know how it was spelled.)
He'd start talking and someone in the room would yell, "Cryyyystal!" and everyone would laugh, because of the associations the name has.
-- Anonymous User  8/22/2011
Crystals are very beautiful gems, like ambers, jades and rubies, but the names themselves are quite cheap and common, so that kind of spoils it. Still lovely for fantasy characters, though.
-- Hushpuppy  9/10/2011
My name is Crystall spelled C-R-Y-S-T-A-L-L, yes that is 2 L's at the end. I ABSOLUTELY hated my name growing up. I hated it because there were a thousand other Crystal's and because mine was spelled different than everyone else's. I would spell my name everyway but the right way. Funny thing is now that I'm grown I ABSOLUTELY love my name and the way it is spelled. I get really upset when people don't spell it right. It's crazy to think about all the time I spent trying to be like the other Crystal's!
-- cchudson  12/14/2012
Crystal is my name (exactly how the word is spelled). I was never enamored with it. I don't know what my parents were thinking, naming me after a gemstone, because not being native English speakers, they were DEFINITELY thinking of the stone and not any other meanings. I think it's ugly. I hate the structure, and I dislike the fact that it's a GEMSTONE. There's something really distasteful and as others have said, PEDESTRIAN about naming a child after a gemstone in my opinion. No daughter of mine will ever be Ruby, Diamond, Sapphire, Amber (okay, maybe Amber is okay since it's not too ostentatious), Opal, Aquamarine, or anything of that ilk. Certainly not Crystal. Born in 1993, I don't meet many people with my name and that's about the only upside. In any community I've been in there's at MOST one other Crystal (once in elementary school. In my college there used to be a dining hall worker named Crystal). Oh and every possible nickname my friends came up with were similarly ugly. Cryssie? I nearly cried, not in joy or sadness, but by how absurd it looks. Pun. Ha. No. I have no problem with my identity. I just don't like this name. Maybe I'll introduce myself as Chris from this point forth. Who needs to know my real name, anyway?
-- Antares  4/4/2014
While some might think "Crystal" belongs to a white-trash, alcoholic stripper, I love my name (I don't smoke, drink, or strip for the record). I once hated it, though. Kristen, Catherine, and Christina were far more lovely, normal names. But I wouldn't think of changing my name now because one of the most famous linguists is Dr. David Crystal. Perhaps you need to watch some lectures from Cambridge, because the name "Crystal" needs to be associated with this man.
-- booksntea  5/24/2014
Crystal has a wonderful meaning, but the name itself screams white trash to me. There are too many strippers and obnoxious people who bear this name. As a simple word Crystal is beautiful, as a name not.
-- Alexanna  6/1/2014
After understanding the meaning of the name Crystal, being clear, bright and transparent, I began to grow quite fond of the name and wear it proudly as people always complimented me on how much they love my name. A lot of the other Crystals I have met in my life time up till now have been quite open and bright people. However, sometimes, I do feel that I can see things around me a little bit too Crystal clear... with a Crystal clear personality and mind set (i.e. cannot stand when somebody crosses the line with no shame or being a consistent bully, unfairness and etc). I'm proud but sometimes feel conflicted in bearing this name in a furry and blurry world.
-- Anonymous User  6/15/2014
I was named Crystal, and I always got the feeling my mother didn't want to name me this as she said many times "I didn't want to name you that, but your father is a jerk and knew I wanted your name to be Marissa or Miranda so he named you Crystal." I read so many comments posted about how common the name is and how unoriginal it is, well this was not the case for me as I went through school, and even into my working life. I have only come across a handful of other Crystals, in fact I have come across more people that share my birthday than share my name. I neither like nor dislike my name and have refused to allow people to shorten my name to Chris, or Crissy or anything such as these. I just do not like them for myself.
-- crymeariver  7/6/2014
My name is Crystal - correct spelling, which is the best spelling in my opinion. I don't like my name much, not for any legitimate reason and there aren't many 'Crystal's of any spelling where I am, it just doesn't really fit me I guess... then again, maybe it does and I'm being stubborn.
-- Icyclear  8/5/2014
Crystal is my name and I LOVE it! I think it's a beautiful and feminine name that doesn't need a nickname. Just call me by my beautiful name, Crystal!
