Comments for INDIGO:

I think this is a wonderful name for a boy. I like the way it sounds, and I like the meaning. I'm actually surprised it's not more popular.

I, too, am surprised at how unpopular the name Indigo is, though I think of it more as a girl's name. I reminds me of the deep, dark depths of the ocean and dark shadows of fish passing by. Like the color, aquamarine, it makes me think of the alienish peacefulness of the sea, though aquamarine makes me think more of tropical, light-filled waters.

I love this name and I want my son's name to be this when I have children one day. Also, this name was used in Hilary McKay's books 'Saffy's Angle', 'Indigo's star' and 'Permanent Rose' for the boy Indigo Casson.

A friend of mine has a daughter called Indigo. Only about ten people in Sweden have this name. I think it's gorgeous.

The Indigo Girls are a band made up of Emily Saliers and Amy Ray. They first started performing in 1984, but it wasn't until 1989, with the release of their self-titled album, that their great songwriting and fantastic harmonies gained national attention. They have been nominated for several Grammy awards and won one for Best Contemporary Folk Recording.

Their most recognizable singles include "Closer to Fine," "Kid Fears," and "Least Complicated."

I don't like this one for a name.

I would never name a girl Indigo, but I think it's a wonderful name for a boy. An "o" ending often designates a boys' name (such as in Indigo). I know one boy named this, and he sometimes goes by the nickname Indy.

I love this name for either gender. I would really consider using it.

A very cool name.

I dreamt I had a baby named Indigo Violet. Very nice name.

This one sounds a bit strange as a name. For a girl, it sounds masculine with the 'o' at the end, and boys might get teased over having a color name, which seems to be something more often done to girls. Of course, it could well be that the child will not even like the color.

A lot of our associations with names come from people whom we know who have them. I have a good friend who uses the name "Indigo" instead of her actual birthname, and as a result I've always considered it a girl's name, appropriate for someone who is witty, creative and fiercely independent.

Even with the masculine sounding O at the end, I would never use this on a boy.
-- Alaric  4/3/2009
Interesting, but I would never name anyone this.
-- -Julia-  7/28/2009
I think this would be bad for a person, but I can still like it.
-- lucyskydiamonds  11/20/2009
I love this name for a boy. A girl with this name would be teased because of the O at the end. At least at my school she would.

I like this name. It's interesting, spunky and quite cool for both sexes, though I slightly prefer it on a girl. Despite the -o ending, I would only ever use colour names on females, sorry. Also, it sounds similar to the Welsh name Indeg, which makes Indigo seem more feminine to me. However, I think Indigo is one of those names you would have to have the right personality to pull off.

I wouldn't use this on either sex. Indigo sounds weird as a name, since it's just a color. It also sounds like a hippie name.
-- bananarama  4/17/2010
Lovely name. I would never ever name a boy this, though, that may be partly influenced by the fact that I knew a nice girl named Indigo.

Maite Petersen and Carl Della Badia have a son Indigo August, born in August 2009.
-- MaggieSimpson  7/18/2010
This really isn't a bad name in itself, but it is so strongly associated with the New Age movement and the bogus concept of "Indigo children" (a trendy way of ensuring your kids grow up to be utter brats with the most ridiculous sense of entitlement ever concocted) that it has too much of an ideological stamp on it.

Maybe in 20 or 30 years it will be okay to use again.
-- keepitreal  1/24/2011
For some reason, and I will never know why, I like this name a lot. I'd never actually use it on a child, but I would use it on a pet or character. I prefer this on males.

It's almost as bad as naming your daughter India. It's not the worst name ever, but it's bad enough.
-- GibsonGirl  11/5/2011
My friend has a younger sister named Indigo, and I think it's a perfectly good name. I especially like it on her because she has fiery red hair and I think the name is a nice contrast. :) However I think this would be a good name for any girl regardless of their physical appearance.

We named our first born son Indigo. Occasionally we call him Indi for short. It suits him very well and our family and friends are very fond of him. We like to think he'll have less difficulties in the future finding things like usernames and such, which will certainly become a part of life even more so than it is now.

I also contacted the national statistics in the UK regarding the popularity of the name. In 2010, 3 boys were named Indigo. In 2011, there were 8.

Indigo is one of the color kids in the Rainbow Brite franchise from The Eighties.

Since it ends in O, I can't really see it as a girl's name. Also, I've heard too many stories with boys named Indigo. Great name, but for a boy.
-- Eievie  1/8/2014
I can imagine a tender girl bearing this name. It's not like "the best of" in my opinion, but it's a really refreshing, cute name with some poetry included. I think it also fits a mature woman's image, but I can't imagine it on an elder lady. So overall, I like it, but I wouldn't use it.
