Paisley is a pattern/design (for fabric). And, I read a book once with a character named Paisley Rose.

I like the name Paisley for a girl, although I don’t think I would use it. It’s nice for a young girl, but I am not sure how a grown women would feel about having the name Paisley. It is pretty though, and I like the fact that it’s unique.

Yes, I feel the same about Paisley. I love the name but I don't think that I would actually use it. Although, well, maybe I would. But it's quite unique and "untouched" and I like that very much.

I've heard worse, but this name sounds a tad too boyish and youthful for a woman. Come to think of it, it sounds quite youthful on men too.

A famous bearers of this name are Ian Paisley and Ian Paisley Jr, Northern Ireland's ex-First Minister and his son, Northern Ireland MLA (Member of the Local Assembly).

I don't care for this name, partially because I think Paisley itself is ugly, and I don't see this name aging well after high school. Who's really going to take you serious if you're called Paisley?

Personally, I think the name Paisley for a girl/woman is beautiful and quite quirky. Unlike many of the people who've shared their views here, I think it'll age quite well. I can see it mature with a woman gracefully from her school girl days all the way up to her adult and senior years.

This is such a unique name that sounds natural, soft, gentle, loving but can also portray independence and power.

Of course, you'd really have to consider the surname when you'd be naming a child Paisley.

But, when it comes down to it: a great name! Sounds like the name of a fashion designer or a PR manager or an ultra-savvy businesswoman.

Meh. It sounds and looks very trendy.

I LOVE the name Paisley for a girl. It's a favorite of mine. I'll be honest, I don't really think it will age well, but I still love it and would use it in a heart beat. I think it could age well if you have the personality to go with it, I have it paired as Paisley Genevieve, just so she has an adult name for when she's older if she needs one.

I despise everything about this name. It's not pretty, cute, or beautiful, and the poor girl won't be taken seriously at all. I mean, come on! Paisley Loan, business woman? Paisley Adamson, supermodel? Paisley Collins, policewoman? It just doesn't sound right. It's a bit better on boys, but not much, as it's still an incredibly ugly, tacky, and youthful name.

Despite being very trendy-sounding, I like this name to a certain degree. Most modern parents are probably inspired by the pattern, not the surname or town. I do think the Paisley pattern looks like amoebas. [noted -ed]

Such a cute name but hate that it is popular.

This is another "-ley" name I really don't understand. I don't think it sounds pretty because I really don't like the "-zley" sound at the end. Also, I'm not a fan of the pattern either.

I honestly hate this name. Paisley just sounds disgusting and sickly as a name. I don't know why anyone would want to use this lower-class, icky sounding name. It's not pretty or unique at all.
-- Almonds  12/10/2013
This name is just plain awful! As tacky as the pattern and naming your kid "Paisley" is nearly a form of child abuse in my book.
It's an unnatractive, made up, tacky modern name. I will never consider Paisley a name at all. I just hate it too much. It makes me cringe.
I just pray to the lord this name doesn't ever become common.

Ugly name.

I first heard this name on "Toddlers and Tiaras," which may have colored my impression of it - trendy, lightweight - forever. It doesn't help my impression that paisleys figured heavily into some truly ugly 1970s fashion.

I don't see "Paisley" lasting long. This name is going to die out or hopefully be an ugly trend just like the pattern.

Damn all these teen moms. Have someone else name your children if you're just going to pick some ugly ass, trendy name. Or better yet, birth control! And even more, wait till you're older where you can make better decisions.
I have zero respect for "Paisley" it is not a name

I agree with everyone else, claiming that it's bad. It truly is.

I love the name, it is unique. I am not one of these young new age mothers. I can see it on a mature, loving wife, mother, and professional woman. After all, a name is what you make of it.
-- aladiamond  2/26/2015
I think all of the comments referring to the name as disgusting and ugly is plain cruel. I named my daughter Paisley Marie, she is a beautiful girl and everyone remarks on how beautiful the name is! Also, I'm not a teen mum as commented above. I was taught if you have nothing nice to say then say nothing at all. I think some of you would benefit from this.

I have a Paisley too! She is a senior in high school. Most of the people she has met like her name, if they don't, who cares!
