I love this name. I think it is so pretty.
-- bagelbrg05  11/26/2005
This is a type of birthstone. In fact, it's mine.

It's the name of the main character in "Ingo", who is often called "Sapphy".

I feel as if this name could be very endearing on a young child, but doesn't seem to age well.

On the one hand, it seems like a pretty name. On the other hand, it sounds a bit strange and corny as a name. This would be a good name for a cat or something, but I'm not so sure about a person.

I love this name and no, they're not usually blue. Sometimes they may be brown, yellow, pink, even colorless.

I used to love this name when I was younger but now I think it sounds tacky.

I once had an imaginary friend with this name, nyaha! I like this name, because it's one of my favorite gems and colors. But now it reminds me a little of "Starfire", which is the lame name someone I know loves to go by online. :P But it's still precious all the same!

Sapphire September would be a cute name on a baby born in September. But tacky on anyone else.

I've named a mermaid character Sapphire after the Sapphire coloured sea!

Some of the comments above me say that Sapphire is a corny name, but I think it's cute. I have a friend that has an older sister named Sapphire who is in her 20's, and I can so picture that. I can't picture someone named Madison or something like that in their 20's, but I could so picture a Sapphire.

I think this name is very nice. Some comments above say Sapphire is corny or tacky, but I don't think so-- it's pretty.
-- -Julia-  7/28/2009
This name is pretty! It's also my birthstone! I also like the variant Saphira.
-- nicole_10107  10/21/2009
This is tacky and it makes me sad that it is real name.

Sapphire is the pseudonym of Romona Lofton, an African-American author. She wrote the book Push, which was turned into the movie Precious.
-- Bonquiqui  7/15/2012
The name Sapphire is loaded with racist overtones, which is why the author Romona Lofton uses Sapphire as her pseudonym. The cultural association of Sapphire with the image of a "belligerent black woman", goes back to the 1920s-1950s radio/television series Amos 'n' Andy. In it's time, Amos 'n' Andy was extremely popular and unfortunately it popularized racial caricatures of blacks. The character of Sapphire was a "domineering, aggressive, and emasculating shrew" and that characterization became popularly associated with the name Sapphire.

I think you're somewhat mistaken to say that the name Sapphire is "loaded with racist overtones". Perhaps in the USA, but in the UK, and, I expect, in most of the world it has no racist or stereotypical connotations whatsoever. My only association with this name is that of the blue jewel. The association with the TV/radio programme you cited isn't universal; I'd never heard of it until now, and I like most people in the world will probably never come across it.

Blue is one of my favorite colors! (And yes, being a person who loves to study gemstones, knows that they're not only blue. But everyone thinks of the dark blue color.) Although a lot of people (including me) have trouble spelling Sapphire, so in this instance I would spell it Saphire. Saphira is cool too. I would definitely use this!

This sounds like the name of a Mary Sue in a bad fanfic. Sapphira/Safira isn't as bad, though.
-- Buneary  11/21/2012
I think that Sapphire is a great name. It's my name, and people only have to meet you one time and they remember you after. If you have friends with regular names people relish on your name alot. It's unique, as a child it's too big of a name for you. You have to grow into it, and it fits the creative types. As a child you go by Saph, as a teenager you go by Sapphi and then by the full name as you get older. As for the racial overtones, I don't believe there are any. it simply depends on the person you're dealing with.
