Comments for JEUNESSE:

This is no name in France.

Previous poster, je suis d'accord! My take on this word is that it is used by the French to mean "teenager".

I think this "name" should be moved to the User Submitted lists. Or deleted altogether. It's just a French word and almost slang (like "teeny-bopper") and doesn't deserve this sort of status among established names.

I doubt French people use this name. It would sound very strange on old women. On English speakers, it would just sound pretentious.

To those who are thinking of naming your child this - don't. Sure, it sounds refined and all (as do most words in Romance languages), but as one of the users said above, it's almost like naming your child 'teeny-bopper'. So don't. Please. For everyone's sanity.

What a dumb name. This would sound ridiculous in France because of the meaning. In English, it would just sound stuffy, ugly, and fake.

This is my name. I realize it's French, but many common words are names, as are locations and even ideas. What sounds good in one language may not sound right in another, but it certainly isn't demeaning.
