I love the name Primrose, it's very pretty. This is the name of the main character in Sweet Miss Honeywell's Revenge.

As a weeny kid this was my favourite name. LOL. I think I watched too many princess films or something. Anyway, I think this is a terrible name now. Very snobby-old-lady-ish and unoriginal.

Like with most of the floral names a real "grounded" and pretty name. Snobbery and flowers don't mix for me.

Primrose was a character in the television programme "The Darling Buds of May."

I absolutey love this name, but I can't imagine it on an old lady. It sounds good as a middle name!

As a surname, Primrose belongs to William Primrose (1904-1982), a Scottish violist who is possibly the most well-known violist of all time.

I prefer the French version: Primavere.

A very feminine name.

A character in Susan Collin's "The Hunger Game", Primrose (or just Prim) is the younger sister of the heroine, Katniss. Prim is small, delicate and timid but is a natural at helping heal people and is clever and determined.

Very formal.

Because of the phrase "Primrose path", I never used to pay this name any mind. However, now I think it's classy and elegant *without* being pretentious. And honestly, of all the schoolyard bullying fodder there is out there, I'm not really sure if 'Primrose path' or 'prim & propper' would become taunts (a little complicated). High school might be different, though. Anyway, this might make a cool nickname, too.

I want to retract my earlier statement--this name is actually quite pretentious.

Primrose Everdeen is Katniss' little sister in the series "The Hunger Games."

I love this name. I think it ages gracefully. I can imagine a sweet, shy little girl and an old, kind lady with this name.

No offense to anyone, but it reminds me of prime ribs=) I like the Rose part just not Prim.
-- Anonymous User  11/25/2010
I will admit it's rather pretty, but it's also youthful and tacky. I'd stick to Rose on its own, if I were you.

Love this one. Sounds like a very cute little girl would have this name, and would fit for a lovely older lady also.

I think Primrose is tacky. Some flower names are ok, but this is not one of them.
-- GibsonGirl  11/5/2011
Not a fan of this name. It sounds old-fashioned in a bad sort of way, and the "prim" sound only makes me think "prim and proper".
-- the_awesome_elf  3/13/2012
My fiance's grandmother is named Primrose and she's a very elegant and well-spoken woman, very proper and she doesn't take any nonsense. If we ever have a daughter I would consider this for her middle name to honor her and I also think it's a very beautiful name but I feel it's a little too over the top to use as a first name.
-- michelle.ramirez  4/25/2012
This name wasn't so bad until Hunger Games came out. Now I'm seeing it all over baby name websites, and people are actually considering it for their daughters. Primrose is bound to lose its uniqueness soon.

This name is terrible: it's tacky and snobby.
-- flamingrubyred  10/26/2012
My daughter is Primrose Alice. It is beautiful and she has compliments for her name instead of bullies teasing her, even though she's in high school. We named her Primrose because where we live, there are always beautiful yellow and purple primroses in Febuary, and as a coincidence she was born in such month. She might have been a violet but we already know 2 and personally I think Primrose is a much more beautiful name. She usually goes as "Rose" or "Rosie" especially at school, and some people just call her by her middle name (but she is also known by her nickname at home!). It is a beautiful name and I love it.

I think Primrose is an ugly, awful, terrible name.
-- LoveHeartKawaii  8/19/2014
It's a pretty name, I don't find it ugly, tacky or snobby. If it was, we wouldn't have named our daughter Primrose. She always gets complimented on it.

Though it might be lame, I did not consider this name until I saw the Hunger Games trilogy. I immediately fell in love. Needless to say, my husband and I decided to name our second daughter Prim Elizabeth. My husband was not a fan of Primrose for reasons completely unknown. So Prim it was! When introducing our little beauty, we get a wide array of reactions. In my opinion, I love that my daughter has such a name that will allow her to stand out amongst the crowd. I do not agree that this name will make her snobbish. Being that she is almost a year now, I can see her personality sparkling through and our daughter is a very warm and loving child. Something about her even-keeled nature will make you melt. Her name suits her so well and I am delighted at the decision my husband and I made, even after being told that it was a horrible name. Our little Primmy is one of a kind and her name is just an added bonus!

I love this name. My husband and I named our daughter Primrose after the flower. It is a very unique name and we liked the fact that it was not common. However, after she was born the Hunger Games came out and we were horrified to learn about the character named Primrose in the novel. We are hoping that it does not become popular. As for shortening her name, we don't. Why name your child one name and call them by another?
