Comments for DESTINEE:

If you're going to use the name "Destiny" (which I think is atrocious in itself), at least spell it properly.

A ridiculous spelling for a name that is ridiculous enough on its own.

When spelt "Destinée" (and pronounced "DES-ti-nay") it means "destiny" in French. It makes more sense to pronounce this variant of "Destiny" as such; otherwise, why have it in the first place?

As if Destiny wasn't stupid enough as it is. The name makes the bearer and the parents alike look like fools who not only actually believe in destiny so devoutly that they have to state it in the name itself, but who are also immature and bad spellers. This spelling is too cutesy and youthful, and the name itself will make people assume the woman isn't very intelligent.

Reading the comments about "Destiny" and "Destinee", it appears that those names are considered disreputable. As for me, I'm French and live in France and have never heard of anyone named this; maybe that's why I kind of like it.

As stated above, the misspelling "Destinee" is very close to the French form of "Destiny" : "Destinée" (pronounced des-ti-NAY ('ay' being the closest sound to the french "é")).

The meaning being the same, it would still seem strange here in France. However, there are other (centuries ?-)old names that are actual words: Désiré (desired), Aimé (loved), Bienvenu (welcome), Honoré (honoured), Fortuné (fortunate), and so on (just add an "e" to feminize them). Very few people are named this nowadays, and those names are often associated with French-speaking people living / coming from African countries or oversea territories (Guadalupe, Martinique, Réunion).

If you are an English speaker (or even if you aren't) and going to name your child--or even a character--an English *word*, at least spell the darn word CORRECTLY!

Destiny is a word, and you shouldn't misspell words, even if they're also names. Please remember the kid's gotta grow up with this name.

This is like one the trashiest and most tacky names I have ever seen. It makes Destiny look high class.

The bearer of the name Destinee is very fortunate, because most strippers have to choose their own stage names.

I think Destinee is a classy name, not at all a stripper name. "Destinee" is the old French spelling of "Destiny", it's not misspelled. I think people get confused about that. It's my name and I love it. :)

That's nice that its French, but I don't think many of the people who use it know that. I think most of them use it as a 'kre8tiv' way to spell destiny, an already trashy downmarket name. As said before, if you're gonna give your child a word as a name, at least spell it right! And the name 'Destinee Hooker' cracked me up. That poor girl. What an image she gives off of the US and our sports teams.

I prefer this spelling over destiny. Destinee is the old French way of spelling this word. I like it if you name your daughter this if your were thinking of the Old French, but I don't like if you just wanted to spell it in a dumb creative way.
~Peace.

Don't. Just don't. It’s bad enough my own name, Madison, is getting butchered as Madisyn, Maddison, etc. - but to kre8tifly spell an already revolting name...

I understand it’s French in some context, but the Destinee I know is likely not French; her parents just didn’t know how to spell. If I’m wrong, then sorry, Destinee, but I thought the French version had the accent over the second 'e'... doesn’t it?
