I always liked this name - I first found it in Harry Potter (Narcissa Malfoy) - until I found out what it meant.

This is a very pretty name. I'd love it, if it weren't for "narcissism" being what it is.

Narcissa Whitman was a famous missionary and pioneer. Narcissa, her husband Marcus, and twelve others were massacred by Native Americans in Oregon.

I ADORE this name!

Very pretty, although narcissism is an unfortunate thing for a name to denote!

Very pretty, nice spelling, awful meaning. Always could hide it in there as a middle name.

It's quite pretty, but there's no way I or any sane person would ever use it. Everyone knows the words 'narcissism' and 'narcissist', even though relatively few seem to understand what they mean, confusing them with selfishness, egocentrism, and even hedonism. Well, narcissism is not a condition you would want to pop into a person's head when they hear your name, so don't do this to your child!

This name is quite beautiful, but unfortunately sounds like "narcissist", and people nowadays think of a Harry Potter character who's quite nasty. It's kind of over-the-top anyway. I feel guilty for liking it.

Not to put a damper on this name for anyone, but to me it looks almost like 'narcotics', I guess because of the 'narc' part. It sounds like a name back in the medieval days. Or a pretty, yet evil fairy.

I quite like this name; it's odd and eccentric. I don't think I'd use it as a first name as it's a bit too strange for blatant usage, although it could be quite usable as a second name. Perhaps, if you wanted to spice up an overly-common surname, or add a general flare of eccentricity, life and colour to an otherwise dull name, maybe? In my opinion it would, anyway. :)

*sigh* - such an utterly GORGEOUS name! The meaning + story behind it, look and sound work together to make it one the most beautiful names I've ever come across.

'This name was rare in England, but became fairly popular in the American South in the 19th century, probably as a flower name. Nicknames: Sissa, Sissy.'

Definitely a pretentious name. Narcissa sounds like the name of a snobbish Victorian aristocrat.
