I have always hated my name - find it boring or very often I am called Donna!

"Pretty as a midsummer's morn, they called her Dawn" - line from Four Seasons hit "Dawn". I named my daughter Dawn because of that line and because it described her.

When I was younger I hated my name, but now it's nice to have a name that is fairly uncommon, but not so unheard of that no-one can pronounce it.

This is my mom's name and she always hated it. We're from Cleveland originally, but now that we're in the south, people have a hard time understanding our Pittsburgh-ish accents. They'll sometimes think she's saying "John!"

Dawn was the girl I was in love with in junior high school. Of course I never dared to tell her this. She had beautiful long blonde hair down to her waist and was at least ten times smarter than I was. Then in high school she went to a different school and I never saw her again. So when I see the name "Dawn", that's who I think of.

"Dawn" by Paul Laurence Dunbar

An angel, robed in spotless white,
Bent down and kissed the sleeping Night.
Night woke to blush; the sprite was gone.
Men saw the blush and called it Dawn.

Pretty name, it makes a great middle name.

I absolutely love the name Dawn. It's my FAVORITE NAME for a girl. If I had twins, I'd name one Dawn-Ally. I love the name Dawn and Ally put together. The other, of course, would be Paige-Abby.

My name is Dawn Swan. I love my name. People are always commenting on how beautiful the name Dawn is. It's not a very popular name but it is a very beautiful one.

In Chinese, "xiao3" (Mandarin) or "hiu" (Cantonese) means "Dawn", as well. I was born at Dawn, so that's my name. I've always liked "Dawn" better than "Amy".
-- hereiamagainxx6  1/9/2007
What to say about my name? I hate it. I've grown a little fonder of it lately, even though my experiences with other people with the name aren't too pretty.

The sound of it is so blunt and ugly to me (and I always turn around when someone calls out "John!"), but at least the meaning is a beautiful one. Unfortunately, a lot of ignorant people don't realize Dawn is an actual name and constantly spell my name 'Don'. -sigh-
-- Belus  1/31/2007
Dawn is a pretty name for a girl. It also makes a good middle name. Overall, it means "sunrise" and most of the time sunrises are beautiful. It's sad that this name's popularity had fell out of the Top 1000 Names.
-- CharlieRob  5/6/2007
My middle name is Dawn. My mom gave me the middle name Dawn because she said it meant, "a new day."
-- Coffeebean  9/27/2007
I don't care much for the name Dawn. It's just not aesthetically pleasing to my ear. I knew a girl named Dawn once and everyone called her "Dawn of the Dead." Of course, that was because they didn't like her anyway, but I can't get that out of my head whenever I hear the name Dawn.
-- queenv  11/15/2007
This is my middle name, and my Mom's middle name. This is also my sister-in-law's name. When it came time to name my daughter, there was no question Dawn would be her middle name. Over the years I had changed my mind many times on what my daughter's first name would be, but I always knew her middle name would be Dawn. I don't THINK it's a filler middle name, but after reading a few posts saying it makes a good middle name, I am beginning to wonder. Regardless, it is not a filler middle name to me, because it has become a family name.
-- afmastro  11/16/2007
Dawn is my first name, and I've always felt just so-so about it. Mostly I haven't liked it because people associate Dawn (along with "Heather") with the 1970s, Birkenstocks, and hippies. I sometimes wonder if people would have a better first impression of me or take me more seriously if my name wasn't associated with that time period.

This was the name of the main character, Dawn Weiner, played by Heather Matarazzo, in the great movie Welcome to the Dollhouse, about a middle school girl with weird glasses and a horrible sense of style that other kids called 'lesbo' and 'wienerdog' and who was treated unfairly by her parents.

I don't usualy like words of names, but I think Dawn is a pretty name.
-- Anonymous User  5/8/2008
It's quite a pretty name, but not in a Southern drawl. I like the concept of the word despite hating mornings unless I've spent the night awake. The problem is that Dawn Eden has ruined the name for me.

It seems that nobody mentioned Australian swimmer Dawn Fraser (* September 4, 1937 in Sydney), who competed in three Olympic Games (in 1956, 1960 and 1964), winning a total of four gold and four silver medals for Australia.

My mother's name is Dawn. She absolutely hates it. Especially since her father calls her Dawny. She refuses to go by her name Dawn, and so instead goes by Rebecca her middle name, and the name of her late great aunt.

Just another weird name. Makes you think "Ding-Dawn" doorbell sound.
-- Anonymous User  2/27/2009
This name is trashy, and it makes me think of the annoying Pokémon character. Why not go for the much prettier name Aurora, which has the same meaning?

Glamorous English actress Dawn Addams (1930-1985), real name Victoria Dawn Addams.
-- Just Jonquil  11/14/2010
Rather heavy sounding.
-- Anonymous User  12/26/2010
It's very pretty, but I feel it's better off as a middle name. I like the combination Scarlett Dawn. It has a lovely meaning: "red sunrise".
-- Black_X  1/27/2011
Dawn! Dawn..! Dawn... Dawn..? No matter the number of times that I repeat it, the end result remains the same. It does not flow well to the ear, with a heavy, blunt sound. "Dawn" is forever "Don," masculine, to me. Though, if I hear some sad female with it as a given name... I pair it with Hippies and all such things that are associated.

It is not a very professional name... In fact, I am certain that this is one to put in the books as career slowing. Dawn Levy, a lawyer? Doctor? I am afraid not.
-- Francesca  5/3/2011
Very 60's hippie-like. A bit pretty, though.
-- MonsterGrapefruit  5/15/2011
My name is Dawn Marie. It seems that every Dawn I've ever met her middle name is Marie. I HATED my name growing up. I have heard every Dawn joke known to man. Dawn Donuts (it's a donut shop here), Dawn dish liquid, dust to Dawn, by dawn's early light, the crack of dawn, Delta Dawn and countless others. How can you spell Dawn wrong? I had a teacher who spelled it Down and I get mail with it spelled Don SMH.
-- majoer  5/12/2012
I have always hated my name, because I am a VERY self conscious person, and Dawn is such an uncommon name nowadays, that it ALWAYS creates unwanted attention. For example, on the first day of school, every year, when the teacher reads my name for attendance, everyone turns around and looks at me, because it's not a very popular name. Lately though, I have learned to LOVE my name, because it is a very natural, earthy, name! Total hippie name, right?! I swear I was born in the wrong decade... I just can't believe that it took me this long to realize how well my name definitely suits me!

Dawn is the female protagonist in the Pokemon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum games as well as in the Pokemon Diamond & Pearl anime. Her name in Japanese is Hikari, which means "light," so the name Dawn ties in with that nicely.
-- Rin_0911  6/22/2012
Well I know that in the Polk Street School (or any way you say it) there is a girl named Dawn Bosco. And also...

REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD NAME YOUR DAUGHTER DAWN;
1. If you really enjoy the sun rise, or Dawn, you can name your daughter after the Dawn.
2. Like I said before in the Polk Street School series there's someone called Dawn Bosco.
3. In my opinion this is a really pretty name just like the other three I had viewed, Blossom, Melody and Ariel, which I am planning to name my daughters these four names.
-- melody2000  12/6/2012
Beuatiful, but hard to say. Whether, DON or DAWn.
-- SEC908  12/13/2012
My name is Dawn, and I really dislike the sound of it. It sounds heavy and just... bleh. DAWN DAWN DAWN. I do like the meaning, however. I was named Dawn because I'm the first born child in my family, like the Dawn of a new day. My middle name is Grace, and I think that "Dawn Grace" does sound really pretty, the "Grace" part softens the "Dawn" part, but it's not too soft, and the meaning is beautiful. I'm 14, but when I'm older I may change my name to Dawne.
-- Anonymous User  5/6/2013
As a first name, it's quite plain, but it makes a beautiful middle name. I love the combo Lia Dawn!
-- Skylar_Arianna  5/22/2013
Dawn IS NOT pronounced like Don. I can't understand how anyone can make the two names sound alike. Listen to how it's pronounced in England. In the US, especially in the Midwest, there's a linguistic phenomena called the caught - cot merger, where the words sound the same. Dawn sounds like caught, not cot. I should know since it's my name.
-- Starling18  6/6/2013
Now considered quite dated in the US, the name Dawn is very rarely used for babies anymore. In 2012, it was only given to 89 little girls here.
-- Oohvintage  7/18/2013
Does anyone remember Dawn dolls? I loved playing with them as a kid, and I really liked the name because of them.
