I like Eunice for a middle name with Gail which is now my fave, Eunice is old fashioned but sounds unique not sure for a first name but I like it enough for a middle. You can't shorten it and it is classy, an interesting name is more important than an overly appealing name I think. I like Gemma, Olive and Lana also. I think Eunice is a girls name only.

An alternative pronunciation is you-NIECE. This is considered the European pronunciation, while YOU-niss is considered more of a Southern pronunciation.

When I hear this name, I picture an ugly nerd sitting in the corner without friends. Sorry, I'm just being honest.

This name is okay, however I think that in this day and age it shouldn't be used as a first name because of it's associations with the word eunuch. Not the best connotation for a girl's name, at all.

Haha, this is my grandfather's middle name? Always thought it was a male name because of that.

I think this name is really unique, so classic. It goes better with Michelle. I can say because this is my name. ^_^ By the way, another thing that made 'Eunice' special is its spelling. Not everyone can spell it correctly. Some may write it as 'Unise/Unice/Youniece or what so ever'. You can also alter the pronunciation. It's also nice to have a name with a meaning of victory. It is also the name of a Nereid which means good victory. It's all about victory. But still, nobody can please anybody. It's only my point of view. I only think that my name, Eunice, is unique and I'm pretty sure it pleases me. A lot. That's all!

P.S. Don't you think 'Ms. Universe' be spelled "Ms. EUNICEverse?"
Cool huh? ^_^

Umm, I don't like this name at all. It's so outdated that it's nearly the equivalent of Abner. No offense or anything.

I never did like this name. It's so old-fashioned, it's not a pretty name at all, and I dislike most names that end in the 's' sound.

It's my mum's middle name. Sorry but it's terrible. It's too hard and sounds "ugly".

Sorry, but I don't really like this name and I cannot see it coming back anytime soon. It's not quite as bad as, say, Ethel or Gladys, but it is usually meant for old ladies nowadays.

It is also the name of one-time Bond girl Eunice Gayson (b. 1931), when back in the 1960s Sean Connery played 007.

It would be nice to know someone named Eunice. It is such a pretty name!

This name is nice whether yoo-NEE-see (yes I see my knee) or yoo-NEH-seh or just plain ol' yoo-Nis or maybe even eunika (yoo-nee-kah). It's quite nifty and sounds nice in its own way (bad pun intended there). But doesn't it kinda sound it'd be related to eunuch? Gone at that one, this name still has a hit.

This is my name and I've always rocked it pretty well, thank you very much, despite the fact that 1) almost nobody can spell it and 2) the only cool person to have borne it was Nina Simone. But it's nice to be the only bearer of your name in any given zip code! ;)

From traveling, I've discovered the following pronunciations: "ou-NEECE" in French, "ef-nee-KEE" in modern Greek (this was a guess hazarded to me; the transliteration was difficult to figure out), "eh-ooh-NEE-see" in Brazilian Portuguese, and "eh-ooh-NEE-seh" in Spanish.

The '-nike'/'-nice' particle of the name refers to Nike, the Greek goddess of victory, which is what the Nike sportswear brand is named after. How's that for a namesake? :)

I have a friend named Eunice but goes by Nikki. She pronounces it YOO-NEECE but I've always heard it YOO-NIS.
