I feel a bit offended seeing all these comments that say "It's a spoiled brat" because MY name is Princess and I'm nothing like that. I don't really like my own name in my opinion, but not all movie stars are rich. That's a saying. Well, at least one I made up. And it means not all people who seem to be called this or that actually are. Cinderella is a princess, she's not nasty. Where'd you get 'spoiled' from?

Another one I can’t help but adore is Princess. I love how deliberate it is. If I met a princess, I’d be very intrigued & I’d never forget them. I’m in my 30’s & still love Disney Princesses as do many women I know.. we all have a favourite.

My name's Princess and I'm not embarrassed by it. Actually, I'm quite fond of it. I love it when I tell people my name and they question if it's my real name. I've made a load of friends without even trying because our conversations started with talking about my name. It's just a name, like Justin or Levi or Prince. If it's a problem to you that's your own issue. I and others won't change our names because you think it's 'childish' and 'prissy'. It's actually laughable how half of you are adults speaking negatively about the name Princess. If you have children and they go up to you telling you they want to be Princesses when they're older and you go 'You already are a Princess' or 'You can be whoever you want to be' then you're all hypocrites because I can't be whoever I want to be without you judging me because of my name. So please stop complaining and think about your life before judging mine. Xox.

Personally, I think it's somewhat important to look at a full name (i.e. the name you're looking at in conjunction with the last name)
Princess Johnson, Princess Olson, Princess Smith... It sounds more like a title, frankly. While it is a somewhat nice sounding name, considering how others react is important as well.
It's a regal name, that's for sure... It reminds me of the colour pink (probably hot pink).

What is with these title names and modern names? Jayden, King, Kaiden, Queen... now Princess? It is also horribly unprofessional and cheap. Why can't you name your daughter a Princess name (Diana, Elizabeth, Alice) or a name meaning Princess (Amira, Sarai, Ludmilla)?

Please do not name your daughter this. It's such a childish and pretentious name. I was in the lab room one day and the two ladies were talking to each other. At one point the lady asked the girl what her name was and she replied "Princess" and they lady asked if that was her real name and she said yes. Save your child the embarrassment.

Why not name your child after a fictional Princess (like Aurora or Belle) or after a real Princess (like Anne or Charlotte)? It sounds much more formal and refined in my opinion.

What I have noticed is the insecurities in others who attempt to give my daughter an alternate name other than her given name of Princess. She has been taught that every little girl is their Mom and Dad's Princess and has always been well-received at school. Everyone who meets her never forgets her. She is asked often if Princess is her real name and when people attempt to call her by her middle name, she asks them what their middle name is and begins to call them that (this of course stops them from calling her anything other than her first name because most people HATE their middle names!)
On the rare occasion that a new person who displays discomfort at calling my daughter Princess, we see it as a new teaching opportunity. A 40-something named Princess is the same as a 40-something named Helga. IT'S THEIR NAME... GET OVER IT! No one is obligated to pander to small-minded people. Confidence is NEVER arrogance except to the insecure and small-minded.

Hello,
I named my daughter Princess Ivory Elisabeth London. She was named after her father whom is Ivory and her grandmother Elisabeth. I love my daughter's name and the name doesn't define the person. Anyone who complains about a child's name it's because you are simply just jealous. Why concern yourself with another person's name? How about you name your child what you want? We have people with the name Dick, Levi, Prince and etc. So why not let a name be what it is- a name? Is that person hurting you or are you hurting that person by being a bully simply because of their name?

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.

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.

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.

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]

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. :)

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.

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.

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!
