When I first heard this name, I thought Pamila was the only spelling of it.

It's a bit strange that this name is so common, but was invented, even the 1500's.

My cousin is called Pamela and she is so not "all sweetness"! She is spoilt, selfish and stuck up. And she is only six years old. Sorry, this name does nothing for me but only because of the person my cousin happens to be.

It's my name. I used to really dislike it because there wasn't a single person I knew under 30 years old who shared the name, but it's grown on me. It's memorable, because it's become unique.

There is an author named Pamela Evans.

This is my name. I hated it when I was growing up because the only other people I knew who shared my name were two of my friend's mothers. I have grown to appreciate my name now, I'm happy to have a name that is pretty without being overused.

For some reason, I've always loved the name Pamela ever since I'd heard it. It really is a beautiful name.

I personally like this name because it's my name. Pamela is an adorable, delicate, feminine, and high class name. It's also surprisingly rare. You hear about people who have that name but you never actually see them. I have never met or seen anyone also named Pamela except Pamela Anderson on tv. I have heard of someone with that name who works with someone I know though. Being a Pamela gets lonely so I think more people should give thier kids this classic name, but not too many otherwise it wouldn't be a classic. Make sure the kid named Pamela also has a cute and refined middle name to go with it, my first and middle name together is Pamela Caroline, it balances it out and adds more class so you seem very upperclass. I think this name is very special and anyone who shares this name with me should be very proud.

Call me crazy, but it's a lovely name for a girl!
-- aquaspirit96  10/4/2007
I think this name is too ugly and all the Pamela's I've met were like 50 so this name was very famous in the 1950's.
-- vane62392  12/6/2007
I don't really like this name at all. The beginning sounds quite harsh and even boyish, and I've associated this name with trashy and vapid girls and women for some time. However, my impression of this name has become less negative after reading the posts of the hilarious blogger Pam Spaulding.
-- slight night shiver  5/2/2008
Pamela is a very Upper-Class, Urban, Sophisticated and Feminine name. It has recently become one of my favourites! =]
-- Miss_Gorgeous  6/19/2008

Pamela is a very nice name. But I wouldn't name my daughter that for fear of people calling her PAM.
-- cookieavalanche  8/22/2008
I really don't like this name it's ugly and old.
-- Anonymous User  8/31/2008
I think this is a pretty name.
-- KayeKiLa  9/14/2008
How can you think that this is an ugly name, this is the prettiest name I have ever heard.
-- Anonymous User  11/25/2008
This name has a nice meaning, but is quite old fashioned and the p combined with m makes it quite hard to say.

Weirdly enough, I prefer the way Borat says Pamela (pa-MAY-la) to the actual pronunciation.
-- Ailis  7/14/2009
A famous bearer is Pamela Lilian Isley aka Poison Ivy.
-- Katrine  2/8/2010
According to Henry Fielding, in his day the name was pronounced either "pa-MEL-a" or "pa-MEE-la." Nowadays, of course, these pronunciations are rarely if ever used.

Pamela is my sister's name, and I think it's the best one my mother came up with (out of five). It's pretty and sophisticated, with great literary associations. Yes, somewhat dated, as it had its period of popularity in the past, but that doesn't make it inherently bad. I'd like to see more little Pamelas around.
-- queenv  11/3/2010
A bit outdated, but it still has a very nice meaning.
-- Anonymous User  12/13/2010
It's not that it's outdated, it's that it just sounds trashy. Reminds me of Pamela Anderson, plus Pam has to be one of the ugliest nicknames in existence. Rhymes with spam and ham.
-- Anonymous User  10/30/2011
I am a Pamela. I like my name quite a lot. HOWEVER, I do not care for the nickname Pam. So I say to people firmly but nicely, "I like being called Pamela or Polly" (I like both these names). They eventually get the message, and I am happy... In terms of age, please remember that all of today's middle aged and older people were once young, and all of today's young people will one day be older. Fads and fashions come and go. It is a good idea to focus on the name itself. Ageist remarks are not too bright.
-- linden-tree-murmur  3/27/2012
This is my name. Personally, I hate the name. Although most people call me Pam, which I actually kind of like. I think that the name is more common with older women, which is one reason I don't like it, as I'm almost seventeen years old. All the other Pamelas I've known were in their 40's or older. Also, as a child I was teased to be known as Pamela Anderson, which is someone I really don't want to be known as. Also, my name rhymes with things like "ham" and "spam". I also think that it sounds really snotty and high-class, which doesn't suit who I am. Blech. Hate it.
-- KaiLeaf  7/2/2012
Pamela is my sister's name. She's 24. I sometimes call her Pam, although one time she told me she preferred I didn't call her that. I think the name is okay. I don't think it's pretty or special. It's just a name. Nothing unique about it.
-- Karina  7/7/2012
Used in Italy too, even if it's very rare!

The name Pamela was given to 213 baby girls born in the US in 2012.

Pamela is my name and I'm now in my 50's, too. Most of us named Pamela used the nickname Pam and it was a popular name when I was attending a large high school in the 70's; however, teachers called many of us by our last names so this was not an issue. Actually, I have always liked the meaning of my name and I think I live up to the meaning "sweet as honey". Anyone can try to be nice, but being sweet comes naturally to me. My daddy always called me "Sweet Pammy" and most of my family and closest friends have endearingly called me Pammy, too. Now, that I'm a grandmother my grandchildren call me "Grammy Pammy". Everyone likes to hear the sound of their own name being called by the ones they love the most. I'm happy to say my mother that named me Pamela Lynn will be 84 years old this year and when she calls my name I'm proud she marked me with sweetness towards all I encounter.
