I think it sounds cute and fun.

The white keys of a piano are made from Ivory.

Ivory can also be used as a male name. It was used most often for males in the early twentieth century.

There's a song called Ebony and Ivory.

Okay, this is a bit weird as a name, but it is very pretty. Just don't even think of adopting a white girl and a black girl and naming the girls Ebony and Ivory. That would be very tacky indeed. This is a pretty nice name for very pale girls, but it calls a bit too much attention to their looks, don't you think? Well, it's still pretty.

I really like this name; it's cute but not obnoxiously girly and frilly like some names. However, I do believe that the usage of the name must be corrected. While it appears to used by African Americans now, it wasn't always. I was tracing my family tree and several generations back I found a woman named Ivory Kathryn and she wasn't African American.

The connection to hunters makes me very uncomfortable, so I can't get past that. As said above, it does bring attention to the girl's looks. Though it sounds pretty, I have a low opinion of it. Go with Ivy.

Ivory sounds a little silly as a name, and I can't picture this name on a black girl. It sounds more like the name of a girl with ghostly white skin and dark hair. For some reason, it also makes me think of soap.

If you're planning the possible family of Captain Planet-themed villains, you're better off going with Bushmeat or Deforestation.
Remember, kids. It's all fun and games until someone's teeth end up as a piano.

It is a really pretty name, a lot better than the similar-sounding Avery for girls. Personally I think it works a bit better on a pale-colored animal, but that's just me.

I think IVORY is a good pretty name, because it is also my name.. and for 25 years bearing this name I always smile because they really like my name. I just have a fair skin, not too much white. But my mom said they got it from the name of soap.

I adore this name because this is my name as well. I always wonder how my mother came up with this name. I am proud of having the name Ivory, and others with this name should be too.

This is a pretty name. Ivy would make a cute nickname as well. But I just can't help but think of tacky kre8yve parents who have twin girls and name them Ebony and Ivory because it's just so YOONEEK.

Cute, unique, and so much better than the ever popular Avery.

My grandfather, Clifton Ivory, my dad Ivory shelton, and myself, Ivory Shelton Jr. I love my name because I know very few with it. The one and only thing that I do not like are the mispronounced attempts and the confusion between other derivatives of my name. But all in all, it's the name I was given.

A tacky name, and it's really weird that 99% of people with this name are black...
