Prissy may mean 100% feminine boys or girls, but I dislike the way it sounds, not a good name. This would be a name parents would put on kids to teach them to be weak and defenseless, when kids should be noble and graceful. Prissy sounds way tooooo much like a slang for my likings.

I feel sorry for anyone with this name, it brings to mind the word, and I don't understand why someone would call a child this!

A ridiculous, embarrassing and God-awful name to bear. D:

Poor kid. Some people don't want their kids to be successful, well adjusted adults with beautiful childhood memories. Name your kid 'Prissy' and tell me you're not a sociopath.

Sounds like something you'd name your chihuahua.

At least we know that she'll be meticulous and fussy, constantly primping and such... but then she'll lie about her midwife skills.

I don't like this name. The word comes to mind first, and next the slave from Gone with the Wind. I can just hear Prissy talking in a high-pitched voice. That's why I can't picture any Priscilla, except maybe a very, very old one, going by Prissy.
