My name is Misty and I like my name because I think it's cool and unusual. I also have many nicknames like mist/miss T and I think it's quite funny.

My name is Misty Winds Eastes. I know the name is unusual but its cool. I was named after an Indian princess. But I like the name, I am the only person in my school of 500 or so to have it.

This is a very beutiful name!
Pyromaniak  10/16/2005
My name is Misty Elizabeth (Elizabeth being my middle name) and I like it because it's unique and no one else in my school had that name. I'm glad because there's 6 Emilys in my grade alone. I don't think I could handle someone else in my grade having the name that is mine!

My name is Misty and it kinda sucks. In fact I want to change it. I have wanted to change it since I was 5.

After my family watched a movie with the name misty we thought about naming our dog that, but my mom said it wrong and we ended up calling her Mitsy instead. I think its a unique name!

I think it is a very beautiful name for cats and people!
Christiangirl0909  3/29/2006
There are SO many cats named Misty. Seriously, it's the number one most popular name in the U.S. for cats. My oldest cat's name is Misty, I've had her since I was two, so I've grown up with the impression of it being pretty, but for me it's only pretty for a kitty. =]

My parents' cat's name is Misty too. I think this is an okay name for a young girl but I wouldn't use it.

Misty is my middle name. I love that name and I am happy it is my middle name! It is also my aunt's first name.
libbygirl  9/3/2006
By the way, the word "mist" means "crap" in German. I think that's pretty funny.
pittiplatsch  12/14/2006
Seems like more of a name for a horse than a child to me.

My friend's name is Misty and there's no other name that could possibly fit her. She's unique just like her name. I think Misty is such a cute name.
Jasmine  3/20/2007
Very cute, but seriously lacking in substance.
― Anonymous User  5/27/2007
It's a very cute name; My pony is called Misty. For, a person though, it might be slightly embarrassing because it sounds so girly.
― Anonymous User  12/1/2007
One of my friends wants to change her name to Misty and I really hope she changes her mind before she actually does. I really dislike this name because it feels so insubstantial (and I don't mean literally). In this book I once read which name escapes me, this young girl was asked what she was going to name her girl. She said maybe Wendi (spelt with the "i") and the older man told her she had to give the child a "good, strong name". I agree, this name is just too flimsy for my taste.
livieluvbug  12/2/2007
I think the book you are mentioning is "Where the Heart Is". I never read the book, but I watched the movie.

I like the name Misty! It sounds sort of magical, because of the whole ''mist'' thing.
xNicolex  1/23/2008
This name sounds too close to musty.
jasmineenimsaj  2/24/2008
There's a band called Misty's Big Adventure.
FMRadio  4/26/2008
It's a tad cute, I must admit, but a little too cute, and thus tacky, for a grown-up. It's very tacky when combined with Dawn, Autumn, Winter, or whatever could be Misty. It works better as a nickname or a middle name, as it isn't really one of those mature, sophisticated names, and it might lead to credibility issues.
slight night shiver  4/30/2008
I like it. It's a bit different, but pretty.

Misty Fey is the name of a character in the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney game trilogy for Nintendo DS.

I hate this name. It makes me think of that nasty, irritating Pokémon character.
bananarama  8/21/2008
Laura Wattenberg, author of "The Baby Name Wizard", suggests that Misty is suitable primarily for horses and strippers. I actually kind of like Misty.
EmilyOlive  11/6/2008
I must say, it cerainly is intriguing. Has an enchanting feel to it as well. And by the way, to those of you who suppose the name is "trashy" I've never heard of any stripper, or pornographic actress by that name.
GunsnRoses8794  11/18/2008
I agree with the comment above. There's just something about this name. I love it. I do sort of understand why people would think it's trashy, but for me it has a kind of beauty to it. I also do like 'nature' names.
Amy456  12/5/2008
Makes me think of someone getting "misty-eyed."
MoonAgeDaydreamer  1/15/2009
I really love this name, I think Misty is a cool and modern name, especially as it reminds me of Misty from the first series of Pokemon, who is the gym leader of Cerulean City.
walesgal92  6/13/2009
I don't think this name is too bad. However, I'm not keen on the fact that it's an English adjective rather than a noun. (I have the same feeling on the name Thankful--but I think that's an atrocious name to begin with, so perhaps that's not the best example.) Anyway, I would be much more inclined to use, instead of Misty, the noun Mist--or perhaps even Myst, which was a name I saw in Kresley Cole's novella "The Warlord Wants Forever" and thought it was really cool!

I want to retract my earlier comment. Misty is really, really growing on me.
― Anonymous User  1/12/2011
Reminds me of a 1980's teeni-bopper who dreams about rainbows, riding horses, and Carebears all day. Who paints her dog's nails pink and wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up, only she is so vapid and silly, she just ends up getting married right out of high school. Not a very good adult name, in my opinion. Okay nickname for a little girl.
JW41926  6/2/2010
This name should be for cats and dogs only.
― Anonymous User  4/27/2011
I think this is a really, really pretty name.

Misty is the name of the little girl in the poem "My Name is Misty," written anonymously about child abuse.
Rin_0911  5/14/2012
I hate this name. When I hear it, I picture Misty from Pokemon yelling at her Psyduck. Not something I'd want to think about. Plus it's very trashy.
Bonquiqui  6/30/2012
The name Misty was given to 64 baby girls born in the US in 2012.
Oohvintage  7/19/2013
This thread had me laughing so hard! Yes! I agree with most of the negative comments about the name. It IS pretty hard to run in scholarly circles when you first hear my name. I was an exchange student in Germany and much to my chagrin, MIST is another way to say "dirt" or "crap". I've heard the stripper comment before and trashy as well.

But, it's kinda like the boy named Sue; it makes you know who you are so you effectively shut down those negative first impressions. It also gives you the capacity to laugh at yourself, which is REALLY important for successful adults. Not to mention, I DO consider myself a bit of the esoteric mystery that my name alludes to! :)
MynameisMisty  6/24/2014
I like this name. I first heard this off Pokémon like many others. I love the character Misty so I have no problem with it. (:
― Anonymous User  7/6/2014
I always thought this was a nickname for something. I guess not. Margaret maybe?
lilpimpteller  5/23/2015
It's not my favorite name, but for an adjective it's alright. It sounds mysterious and earthy. This name makes me think of a young woman who has a green thumb and is careless, spontaneous, and is a bit of a hippie.

I named my daughter Misty Rose. I love it, I think it's a very pretty name and maybe not so unusual to people of the pokemon generation.

A famous bearer is Misty Copeland, the first black principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre.

My name is Alyssa, but my mother's name is Misty Eve. I love my mother's name, I have always thought it was beautiful and unique. She is most DEFINITELY not a stripper, she is a paramedic who is dang good at her job. It is not girly either and I think it's a good name for women of all ages. And it should not only be used on pets.

Misty Stone is the stage name of an American pornographic actress and nude model. She was the Penthouse Pet of the Month for December 2014. She entered the adult film industry in 2006 at the age of around 20 and has appeared in over 300 movies. According to The Root, she is known as the "Halle Berry of the porn industry" because of her crossover appeal. Stone stated in a 2014 interview that she "fell into" working in the adult film industry, but later chose to make a career of it because she wanted to be the best at what she was doing. She also tried a variety of looks early on in her career to create a unique appeal for her audience. She describes the look that she chose as "afro-centric '70s" and inspired by actress Pam Grier.

My name is Misty. I don't like it when everyone always says I am Misty from Pokemon. Or when they say is it Misty out today? I like my middle name. It is Dawn, which I realized is also a Pokemon name.
Msanchez20  1/7/2018
My name is Misty Dawn and I happen to love my name. My mom named me after her favourite time of the day; the time of the day when she feels closest to God. It is not "tacky" as someone said in 2008, in fact I get quite a lot of compliments on my name! But I guess it's all in how you wear it too. I prefer to wear my name as a unique and beautiful crown that makes me stand out from the rest; a crown that adds to my individuality and compassionate nature. I work in the medical field and it seems to be quite soothing to my patients and helps them to feel at ease. I love my name and would not change it for anything! I look forward to being an old woman with a "tacky" name then! ^_~.
Mistica210  3/30/2018
Misty sounds like a very beautiful name. I’m not one for nature names, but there are exceptions like Summer, Autumn and Misty, and flower names tend to be the best type. I love Misty air and it is very beautiful so this name is great. Misty from Pokémon may be somewhat annoying, but she is also pretty kind and one of my favorite Pokegirls along with Serena.
