This comes from the Latin verb "destinare" meaning "to make firm, establish".

It makes me think of in "Back to the Future" when George McFly was supposed to say "I'm your destiny" but instead says "I'm your density!"

I think this is a beautiful name! Very strong.

Nobody seems to like this name, but I love it!

A famous bearer is Destiny, one of the Endless in Neil Gaiman's Sandman series. Destiny is the oldest of the Endless and also appears in The Books of Magic.

I really like this name, it's so beautiful!

Miley Cyrus, who stars in the Disney show Hannah Montana, has the real name of Destiny.

I can't stand this name. It's far too popular for something that sounds like it came from a soap opera.

Something just does not seem right about this name. It sounds like a joke of some sort; "I'm your Destiny," "I hear Destiny calling," "Don't deny your Destiny," and it has sexual undertones; "I had an encounter with Destiny!", "Don't deny your Destiny", and this could go on. Don't you think that it sounds at least somewhat unsettling to name anybody (human or animal) after fate?

I don't really like the name Destiny, but it's far better than all the Madisons, Ashleys, and Rileys that were supposed to be boy names.

Sorry to all who have this name. But it's pretty and all but it seems kinda slutty, sorry.
-- rockgurl11  2/6/2007
I love this name. When I have a daughter this will be her name. I have thought and thought about it and this name is very unique. I know no one who has this name and it's very beautiful.
-- crazy-penor14  3/5/2007
It's very pretty. It is the name of a night club I went to once. Hopefully if you named your daughter this, she would be more memorable than my night out, but just as fantastic.
-- princess_alpha  4/30/2007
Destiny, although pretty, to me is overused and it also sounds like a name for a fast and reckless girl.
-- Honeyrose  6/16/2007
This name is the epitome of trailer trash.
-- arrowhead909  7/2/2007
Only yokels name their children like this.

Do you_want_your daughter to grow up to be a stripper? Do you? Then go right ahead and name her Destiny.
-- johann14  9/25/2007
I don't think Destiny is a name for girls who are strippers. I think it's a beautiful name.
-- anelexelena  11/22/2007
It's not a proper name really is it, a bit like Heaven or Honey, something made up to be a bit different.
-- Anonymous User  12/23/2007
I love this name. I named my oldest daughter this. It is very common now. At the time it wasn't very popular. But she was my destiny, she was the reason I straightend my life up.
-- Anonymous User  1/5/2008
This name is really childish. I can't imagine a grown woman named Destiny.
-- jasmineenimsaj  2/10/2008
For you Destinys who aren't the steryotypical person, I feel for you.
-- Anonymous User  2/10/2008
I am not really crazy about this name, but it might work as a middle name with the right first name.
-- Anonymous User  3/10/2008
Cheap, common and trashy.
-- Anonymous User  3/17/2008
I know some of you think it's a really cute idea to use this name, but just take a moment to imagine that your daugter will, indeed, live past the age of 17. Now, I bet you haven't even considered such a wild idea as this, but try to imagine that your daughter might even want to get a higher education, a well-paying job, and a high position in life. If this is, indeed, her name, it will make her seem somewhat uneducated, superstitious (the name itself is a clear statement of that), and immature, as it doesn't suit a grown woman at all. The name sounds like a tacky pseudonym, and it's not even original anymore. And, of course, if she somehow manages to become successful, she'll have to deal with prejudice and people questioning her competence simply for not changing her name!
-- slight night shiver  4/21/2008
This name is tacky and low-class.
-- greta-elisif  5/19/2008
I don't see how people can judge a person from their name. Like someone else said I feel bad for the Destinys that are respectable women. And as far as my opinion goes I can see a grown woman with the name Destiny, it's a very pretty name.
-- Anonymous User  7/5/2008
The crème de la crème of the white trash names. I want to barf whenever I hear this name. That's how much I hate it. And it only gets worse knowing this is the first name of Miley Cyrus!
-- bananarama  7/28/2008
This is one of the chavviest girls names beginning with d, along with Debbie and Danielle.
-- Anonymous User  10/11/2008
Simply naming your child 'Destiny' may not be enough to show how trashy and poorly educated you are. Why not name her DesT'Nee or Desstyni to really show them?
-- vomiting  2/16/2009
I really like this name, but I think it's better off as a middle name or something. Like other people said, she probably won't be taken seriously once she's grown up, which would be unfortunate.
-- CanadianChibi  4/17/2009
I have a daughter called Destiny, although she is 10 she will never be a slut or a stripper and how can you say that just by a name. The name Destiny is beautiful and unusual and I don't live in a trailer.
-- destinykaye  4/29/2009
Stray away from this, please.
-- Kerules  8/8/2009
This is a beautiful name! Pretty, nice, but still very simple.
-- enchy  8/14/2009
I don't like this name. I don't think that all people named Destiny are strippers, but gosh darn it, it sounds like a stripper name! I think that it's perfectly fine if you like it, and you want to name your daughter this, but I just don't like it. BTW I'm not judging anyone by their name, if you walked up to me and said, "Hi, my name is Destiny." I would give you a fair chance like everyone else. I wouldn't write you off as a stripper, but that is what I think of when I hear this name.
-- baileymarissa  8/19/2009
Don't get me wrong I've met really good people named Destiny but it sounds so trashy, I mean come on. I don't even like the word! I agree with the person who said this name was Slutty. No offence. I just can't stand this name. It sort of sounds like the name of a prostitute or stripper. It does sound like a stripper name though. Anyways it's extremely tacky, trashy, and ghetto.
BTW: I really don't mean to offend anyone.
-- italiannames  11/22/2009
Kitsch! Kitschy! Sorry!
-- lucyskydiamonds  1/17/2010
A gorgeous name. This name makes me think of the 90's as a whole.
-- Lily_le_Fae  1/19/2010
I like it, but since I met a stripper who goes by this name, I wouldn't use it.
-- AlineHope  2/3/2010
I like this name I think it's cool but it just has to be the first name of Miley Cyrus who I am NOT a fan of. So this tag totally destroys the name to pieces for me.
-- starz26  4/15/2010
This is my first name. I don't really like it that much, but almost everyone I meet says it's pretty. The only time I've heard bad comments about it is here, and I can very well say I'm the exact opposite of a prostitute.
-- Black_X  5/5/2010
Trashy, tacky, and ugly.
-- Chrila96  12/7/2010
My name is Destiny and I believe it is a great name for a girl. I saw some of the other comments on this name and would like to say that I am in my mid-30's with a PHD making over 150k a year. I have never heard that this name is trashy before I read it on here and that is crazy. Everyone should have a daughter named Destiny!
-- ___Destiny___  7/13/2011
I wouldn't say it was trashy... but... I can't ignore the fact that in the UK, this tends to be what chavs call their daughters. I'm not trying to bring anyone down - I just think people should know that because generally, if you don't know its slightly darker side, it's a nice name.
-- Anonymous User  8/6/2011
This is my name. I love my name. It describes how I am. Only some people with this name become strippers. This name has become popular. I hate how people label this as a Stripper name then everyone who has this name is a stripper. I am proud to say I am not a stripper or have I ever been one nor do I plan on being one. SO STOP JUDGING AND GET ON WITH LIFE.
-- Destiny2027  7/16/2012
Although this isn't my name, I think it's very nice. People who think it is a stripper name are being a bit narrow-minded, in my opinion. People tend to dislike names that are unusual like this one, but I think it's just unique. I think it sounds very sophisticated and elegant.
-- Gio123  3/2/2013
My name is Destiny. :) I had fun reading the comments here. Personally I don't like my name very much, but 9 times out of 10 I get comments on how beautiful my name is when I introduce myself. People online just like to bitter about things, I guess. :)
-- BehindTheNameFan  8/7/2013
WAY too common.
-- lambless  3/25/2014
I think it's nice, but when most people hear Destiny they automatically assume trash.
-- Anonymous User  8/15/2014
I hate it, but not for the reasons you may think. Yes, it’s trashy, and yes, it’s a stripper name, but that’s not why (although a parent should be deterred by those who alone...). Destiny is one of those crappy word names - what’s next, Kismet? Oh, please don’t tell me that’s a legitimate name.

Destiny is a stupid name because for one, it puts pressure on the kid. Second, destiny itself is contrived, because people need to write their own futures, not follow a predetermined route, which is what this is doing (again, are you intentionally setting your child up for being a stripper? No? I thought not).

But if you like it, go ahead. Just beware of what people might (ahem, probably) will say.
