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.

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.
