Griselda Blanco ruins this name for me. Not someone you want to have the same name as.

This is my name. It does get annoying when people pronounce it wrong or when they spell it wrong. I like to think of my name as a princess name. Something someone royal would use. Personally, I do NOT like my name, but I do think it is a unique, and cool name.

If I think of the name in an English context, it works. However, if I take my native language into account, it's a bad name. "Gris" means pig in Norwegian and is obviously a no-go here.

I think this name is underrated. The nickname Zelda sounds really cool and Griselda the name in full sounds like a German princess or something :)

This name is just like Ursula - it reminds me of a witch or Disney villain. Not a pleasant name.

Such an elegant, lovely name. Reminds me of a strong willed, intelligent woman. Which makes it horrible on a shy or a ditzy person.

This name is a really lovely name, in my opinion, perhaps a little bit old-fashioned, but that just adds to its charming enchantment. :)

This is my name and I'll admit it is a bit frustrating when people can't pronounce it. But it's very mysterious, old, and unique. Witch or no witch I think it's a very great name.

The name makes me think about sizzling butter and grease on a frying pan.

This is a very pretty name, but a little old-fashioned.

I don't like this name. It makes me think of grizzly bears.

This name is so old fashioned and weird.

Wow, I'm suprised no one mentioned this.

"Your Auntie Grizelda" is a song made by the Monkees, sung by Peter Tork.
Hums in my head "You look just like her you do, I know by looking at you that you've been listening to Your Auntie Grizelda." :D

This is my name and I think it is gorgeous.

This name is horrible! Please, would someone actually name their child a decent name these days? My goodness.

This name was quite popular in the eighteenth century. It was often abbreviated to Grissel or Grizzel.

Griselda was the first name of Lady Dumbello (!) in Trollope's Palliser novels. (He was fond of giving his characters strange surnames. This one is not apt.)
Kosta  5/25/2006
I like this name. And, dear user, naming your child "Griselda" will not make her turn out to be a witch.
Pheadirean  4/28/2006
Griselda reminds me of a witch. So if you want your daughter to be a witch, name her this. It is the name of a witch in the movie "The Court Jester".

PLEASE don't name your kid this!

This is one of my all-time favorite names for girls. It is seductive yet restrained, playful and dignified.
Arrows  11/22/2005
Griselda, of course, has not come into high demand as of late. Aside from its similarity to the words "grizzled" and "gristled," this can be blamed on the Monkee's "Your Auntie Grizelda."
WeloveyouJesseLacey  4/24/2005
Griselda, carries strength in every curve of it's letters. It gives an erotic tongue roll & smooth flow as it is spoken, whispered and vows eternal love. How could anyone say, "No" to the name, "Griselda"? You only steer from it, if intimidated by the name and/or image attached to it. It's passionate, bold, fierce yet soulful, warm and seductive. Princess Griselda, by sunlight. By moon, defender of all that need her. Griselda may not be a common name but it can arouse an affair of curiosity.
