Comments for PRINCESS:

I don't know who would name their child Princess. It's such a corny and Disney-esque thing to do.

I think personally that anyone who names their child this is taking a big risk that their child will be teased in school. The name sounds VERY prissy.
-- swisssugar  5/19/2006
The name "Princess" has never appealed to me. If you want to name your daughter "Princess", I would opt for something like Ludmila, the Ukrainian name for princess.
-- bschoer10  6/5/2006
I never met her, but there was a girl in my school once with the name Princess. Princess Green, actually. It sounded kind of neat, but I do see the potential drawbacks.

Princess Morebucks is a supporting character/villian on the "Powerpuff Girls".
-- Hailey2006  7/5/2006
Grrr! These are names for girls who I try my best to avoid in school! And, as I presumed, more and more of them are being named, more reasons to treat the child "different" from others, and more and more of them grow up to be the same upperclass snobs that are ignorant and self-centered! Sure, not every girl would actually grow up this way. This will surely make your daughter prone to bullying and having no friends! Sure, the name sounds cute and innocent when on a toddler, or baby. BUT AN ADULT? Imagine a 40 year-old saying, Hi! My name is Princess [Insert Surname Here]. There are so many other alternatives such as Sarah, and PLEASE pick a name that can grow with the child. In the end, parents were asking for it! The name simply emits stereotypical comments. And this is one thing that lasts for a lifetime! Enough said! Peace Out!

Unfortunately, in my opinion, danger among the next generation will come as we enter the next decade! As more and more teens will become brainwashed into pregnancy, this name would SURELY make its way into the spotlight just like fellow names Isabella, Hailey, Jessica, Emma and Emily.
-- Starla-Marie_1993  7/15/2006
What is wrong with parents naming their child Princess? After all, Sarah means 'princess' in Hebrew, so for anyone who speaks Hebrew, all Sarahs are named Princess!

I won't say it's not a horrible name, but to be frank, I've learned to live with it, because like my nickname says, my name is Princess Leah. I kid you not. And yes I've been teased for the Disney ideals and the Star Wars jokes never end. But for all its faults it's still my name.

I can say that overall I like to believe I'm not a bad person, in fact I never even really went by Princess, it was always just Leah, and more recently Rin (p(rin)cess). Every name has its low points, and trust me when I say that I would never recomend this name to ANYONE, but I would never judge someone based on their name either. I mean, if your name is Jezebel, or Lucifer, it doesn't make you bad, just as Princess doesn't make you great, it's what YOU make of the name that makes it great.

I'll admit that now that I'm older I get a kick out of hearing people laugh when I show them my drivers licence, and bouncers at clubs never forget who I am, but I like to think that's not only because of my name, but because of what I've made it.

In the end it comes down to personal feelings, I'd never name my child Princess, but just because someone is named Princess doesn't mean they're any less a person than the Sarah's or Jennifer's, or Megan's or Susan's of the world. It's not the name that defines you, it's you that defines your name. It's only when you let your name become the whole of you, that a name like Princess takes control.

I'll leave off here, but I thought everyone out there should know that there is a Princess sitting out there and if you have that name, know that you are not alone.
-- princessleah  7/31/2006
To me, this isn't a name, it's a title. And that's all there is to it. There are much better names out there than this. But please don't go for Sarah *gags*. Any other name but Sarah -- or Nevaeh!
I don't even like Princess as a fond nickname. But if someone is bound to be called this, let it be for a nickname and not a permanent first name. *Rolls eyes at Stella-Marie*
-- Pheadirean  8/2/2006
Pheadirean, seems that the name Princess would rather fit you! *Rolls eyes back* Anyway, this name is still the most pathetic thing I have ever heard.
-- Starla-Marie_1993  8/2/2006
Unless your child is legally a princess PLEASE do not name your child this. This is a name for pets, porn stars, and prissy girls, not lovely well brought-up children. Save the name for your next poodle or a romp on video tape.
-- Anonymous User  8/5/2006
For me, this is a title, not a name. Sure, some words like Princess, Heaven (or Nevaeh), and the like sound lovely, but as names they sound tacky. A woman named "Princess" sounds to me like a porn-star or something.
-- gaelruadh19  8/24/2006
To me, this is a name for a cat, a very spoiled cat to be more exact.
-- audreyhubley  8/28/2006
My best friend's grandmother was named Ruby Princess; my dog is named Princess. I think it should be left as a title, not used as a name. It sounds frivolous and poor Princess would have trouble being taken seriously.
-- Anonymous User  9/10/2006
This name is not very mature. Maybe it's okay for a 3 year-old, but a 37 year-old? I think not!
-- Fincayra  9/23/2006
Uh, this isn't a fantastic name, sounds like a spoiled brat, unless you were a Princess of course. :)
-- bellaboo  11/2/2006
Why is the list of negative comments about Princess so much longer than the list of negative comments about Prince?

Could it be that we have an example of sexism raising its ugly head? Why is it that in everyday English a "princess" is someone stuck-up and spoiled, but a "prince of a fellow" is a great guy?

Just something to think about. :)
-- clevelandkentevans  12/6/2006
Oh, and not all Princesses are spoilt brats, Princess Diana for example.
-- jeziana  12/8/2006
You know what, you CANNOT judge someone by their name. Being called Princess does not mean they're a snob, if anything it means they have parents who love them (even if a little bit too much) and it's no worse than some names out there. Think about it, there are people everywhere that have names meaning princess or queen (Sarah and Regina for example) and nobody gives a second thought about them, and for all the people who do not speak English it's just another version of Sarah or Regina. Prince is a name that is often used, and not many people make fun of that, so please think before you make fun of a name.
-- jeziana  12/8/2006
Where I live it is illegal to name someone Princess since it's a title. I don't know about the English word, but I doubt they would ok it as a name since it's so similar to the Swedish word, prinsessa, and everyone knows the meaning of it.
-- Tango  1/29/2007
I agree that we should have a choice when it comes to naming your child, but Princess? Maybe if you lived somewhere where people didn't generally speak English it wouldn't matter. But if not, this name would just lead to teasing, I think.
-- scarletquillraven  2/20/2007
I have a friend named Princess, and guess what people, she's not a snob. Oh my goodness, the world is ending.

Anyway, I'm actually a bit jealous of my friend. You know why? Because she might get some crud about her name from time to time, but she has some of the most real and best friends anyone could want. It's because anyone you would really want as a friend wouldn't judge you based upon your name. Something to think about.

So then /my/ thoughts on this name are that I don't believe I would ever name my little girl this, but I can see why some people might favor it, as it does sound pretty and does have good associations to it.
-- Amberly  2/23/2007
One of my friend's first name is Princess. But Joy is her middle name and that is what we mostly call her. Princess Joy with her surname sounds great.

I used to wonder why on earth people would ever name their child this. But the name Princess has grown on me. Although if I were naming somebody this, I would definitely make sure they had a substantial midle name.
-- tomboy  3/17/2007
Not the best idea.

This is singer/dancer Ciara's middle name.

Oops! Look who's going to be made fun of in school. This just sounds like the parents were lazy. I mean, come on. Princess? I GUESS it's ok for a little kid, but imagine a forty year old woman with the name "Princess".
-- Anonymous User  8/9/2007
What if someone named a Princess Princess? She'd be Princess Princess. And if she became a Queen she'd be Queen Princess.
-- Anonymous User  8/13/2007
My friend wants to call her daughter this and I hate it! It's such an awful, prissy name and children called Princess will allways be bullied. PLEASE! If you want to call your child Princess give it as a nickname or name them Sarah which is a beautiful name that means Princess.
-- Anonymous User  9/19/2007
It wouldn't be such a bad name if it weren't the name for about a quarter of every female dog ever. I'd hate for my daughter to have the first name of most people's pet. Please use a variant of Princess, keep it as a nickname, or at least make it only her middle name. She'll only suffer otherwise.
-- napoleana  9/26/2007
I must admit, this name DOES sound pretty. "Princess", I like it. I would never name my child this, due to the picture in my head of a forty year old "Princess". But, if you want to name your child this, first please consider you could name them "Sarah" or a name of a Princess like "Elizabeth" or "Diane". I'm only thinking of your children!
-- BelleBeauty  10/25/2007
I think that this is a name best suited for the family pet.
-- mhavril39  10/27/2007
I can't believe people are actually naming their kids this.
-- renee06  1/16/2008
This is more of an epithet imposed onto girls who are spoiled and bratty, and sometimes it may be used by jealous and mean-spirited kids to bully someone prettier and richer. It sounds very girly and cutesy anyway, and it's a title. The name is utterly infantile and tacky, and I don't know what sort of ideas the parents who use this name have about the expectations there will be about the intelligence and maturity of someone named Princess. I'd say they are going to be low, and there will be bullying and job discrimination for sure.
-- slight night shiver  5/2/2008
It sounds good on a cat or little dog but it sounds so tacky on a human.
-- number1212  5/12/2008
Is it me or does this name sound like an orange and yellow striped tabby cat?
-- missBridget  7/8/2008
A little girl named Princess will think she really is a princess. Please save yourself some terrible pain and pick something else!
-- bananarama  7/15/2008
Reminds me of Disney, Star Wars, and of course royalty.
-- kateab1115  8/12/2008
Please don't name your daughter this. It's so tacky and corny. Bleck!
-- snickerdoodle  9/13/2008
I really think "Princess" is a ridiculous name for a child. Think of how badly she's going to be teased at school.
-- Anonymous User  11/1/2008
Imagine if your little Princess overheard people talking about fairytales or royalty, and piped up 'hey, I'm a Princess'. People would either burst out laughing or give her funny looks. I once actually knew someone in school with this name, but she was the only one.
-- Anonymous User  11/23/2008
Princess. Honestly. When my sister and I were little kids we would play dolls and often we'd have characters named Princess. That's what this name should be: a name for dolls in games preschoolers play. Not for real people!

Not that it's not cool sounding, but there are just too many associations with frilly dresses, the color pink, and crowns and tiaras. I think people would think her name was cool in preschool and kindergarten, but picture middle school! I don't even wanna think about it!
-- Anonymous User  1/28/2009
What is with these non-names like Princess, Precious, and Treasure being used as girls' names now? They sound completely ridiculous on a human being, and call to mind a spoilt child. It's bad enough so many parents give their daughters this silly Princess mentality, to the point where even grown women have Princess fantasies, but to actually name her Princess? Names like this are best suited to dogs or cats!

Katie Price and Peter Andre named their daughter Princess Tiaamii.

Naming someone a word in a different language is just as tacky, if not more, than naming them that word in your own language. For christ's sake, get that into your head.
-- jj459  11/27/2009
Princess is a title or a term of endearment, not a name. No matter what your daughters name is, you can STILL call her Princess. I feel like only those close to the child should have the right to call her "Princess" but if this is her legal name, everybody will call her this and she WILL eventually hate her name.
-- Anonymous User  4/18/2010
I'm not insulting any Princesses out there, but the idea of naming your kid after royalty is a little strange.
-- ListenToAsuka  5/3/2010
You're kidding. This is just, well, it's not a name. I don't even like it on an animal. Don't, please.
-- Black_X  5/10/2010
Parents who name their daughter this are absolutely cruel human beings. Find a name that has the *meaning* of Princess, or the name of a former Princess, PLEASE. Just ANYTHING but this.
-- Hannah_E  5/18/2010
If you have zero future aspirations for your child and never want her to seek professional employment outside the adult film industry then name your daughter Princess. If you want your child to actually have a chance in life and not be held back by a name, then stay clear of this atrocity.
-- Anonymous User  9/1/2010
This is something you name your dog, not your daughter. I don't even understand why you would want to name your child something like this. It's a title, not a name, and it shouldn't be used as such.
-- Anonymous User  2/20/2011
Oh wow. This is actually a name?
-- Joy12  5/10/2011
Using it as a first name is beyond a horrible idea, for it might give the child the impression that she can basically do whatever she wants aka becoming a spoiled brat. Even as a nickname or constantly saying that the child is a princess is a bad thing as well. This I know from experience. My four- year-old niece has gotten worse in behavior because she's gained this ego that she is a princess and can do whatever she wants. I was never called a princess when I was growing up and I know why. I personally think this name is trouble.
-- Anonymous User  9/11/2011
There is a first grader at my school named Princess. She is very sweet; however, I can't believe she is stuck with a name like this. When she first told me her name, I had to stifle a snicker. Not only does the name sound stupid, it can also come off bratty and pretentious. Your little girl can be your little "princess," but for God's sake if you love her, please give her a name that people will take seriously. Also, the name doesn't age well. I can't fathom an old lady named Princess.

If a girl named Princess acts like a spoiled brat, it's not just because of her name, it's because her parents had the mindset to spoil her like a princess from the very start, hence the name. I would never give my daughter a name like this, because I think it's ridiculous, and also a little sexist. Who the hell cares about being a princess? If you read a little history, you'll find that being a princess kind of sucked. You never got to make your own decisions, and you were married off once you hit puberty. To hell with that.

Prin-SES, with the stress on the second syllable, is a common pronunciation of this word in British English. I believe it is more French-influenced (from princesse). [noted -ed]
-- Anonymous User  7/12/2012
It sounds so trashy to name your kid Princess. There are plenty of other names that mean the same thing, but Princess itself is quite ridiculous. It's something that parents call their daughters as a nickname, so it would be odd to use it as the kid's legal name.
-- Buneary  1/16/2013
All the comments I just read are completely ridiculous, My name is Princess and I was named that because I am the only and youngest girl of six guys. Originally I would've had 10 older brothers, but due to miscarriages that couldn't be. Just because my name is Princess IT DOES NOT MAKE ME STUCK UP, and in my opinion that's something real IGNORANT to say. Yeah I laugh at the fact that I share the same name with some pets but, I've bumped into some bobs, sallys, kates, michelles, bridgets, and they all had four legs. I've also come across some really trashy names and "Princess" is what you people decided to label as trashy? Sometimes I despise my name simply because it brings too much attention, it causes me to stand out and I'm a shy person. Down the line it will be funny to be a 40 year old woman saying "hi my name is Princess" simply because it's a little girl's name, but I met a 70 year old in a nursing home named Princess and it came off pretty cool. Yeah it's not the best name but tell me whose name is? Damian was said to be an evil name, I know a damian and he's a sweetheart. YOUR NAME DOES NOT MAKE YOU WHO YOU ARE, IT'S JUST A WAY FOR YOUR PARENTS TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES AND A WAY FOR YOU TO BE IDENTIFIED. My family spoils me, NOT BECAUSE MY NAME IS PRINCESS!, but because I'm the youngest sibling, I'm the youngest grandchild, the youngest niece.. I'm the baby pretty much... You ppl need to get a grip, and stop being so disrespectful.
-- Princess1027  2/27/2013
Though it has fallen out of the top 1000, 'Princess' is still unfortunately used as a first name, being given to 243 poor little girls born in the US in 2012.
-- Oohvintage  7/16/2013
My name is Princess. I have to disagree with most of the previous comments. I never had any problems at school with teasing/bullying on account of my name. If anything, it precipitated many friendships. It is a great ice breaker in forging new relationships, job interviews, and meeting people. You are immediately distinguishable and memorable when in a group setting which works to an advantage at work, school, gatherings, etc. After frequent use, it loses its unique factor and becomes a name like any other, a group of letters and sounds. But I must say, I feel it always gives me an advantage at first impressions. I have done very well in life; and I have never been viewed as "immature" on account of my name. It is a common name in many cultures and languages. Leave it to us English-speakers to give it a negative connotation! I love my name. I am very happy my parents decided to give me such a gift, and show their love for me in such a life lasting way.

There is a character in Adventure Time called Doctor Princess.

Seriously, this is so damn stupid as a name. Common sense would be to go pick a name which MEANS 'Princess' e.g. Sally, Sadie, Sarah...
