Sharon is shortened to Shaz in the UK, and Shaz has taken on the generalised meaning of "cheap and nasty, common". As in "Look at that girl over there - what a shaz." Unfortunate for its bearers!

"Shaz" is not used in that context in the UK. Sharon is not my style, I prefer Sharron, but it is perfectly nice on someone else's child.

I've never really liked this name. I find it sounds sort of boring.

From what I've heard, it's ShAr-ON, not sher-un.

Sharon Bezaly, Israeli flautist - "'Paganini of the flute' plays likened to David Oistrakh or Vladimir Horovits for her flair and virtuosity (Gramophone, November 2005)"

This is my name and I like it. It is pretty and not overused, especially at my age group. I have ever only met one other girl my age with my name, and she spelled it Sharron. And it took me 15 years to find her. It is a really nice name, and it is different.

Hello. My name is Sharon. When my mother named me she had only heard of one person with that name. This was 1958. There were three Sharons (including my best friend) in my first grade class, out of 22 children! So what she thought was a uncommon was not. Most Sharons I meet are between the ages of 35 and 60 years old. I actually like my name. It's not too fancy, not too plain. Not hard to pronounce nor hard to spell. Mom had other names she considered and I am glad she did not choose all of the other names except one that I did like. I would have preferred a different spelling like Sharron or Sharyn but oh well. :) When I hear the strange names of some children these days I am thankful to be named Sharon. I wish it were used more often. When parents are looking for an uncommon name I think they should realize there is a huge difference between choosing an uncommon name and a name that is downright weird. People should consider how names may affect the child. ~Sharon

Rose of Sharon (also called Roseshearn) is a character in Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath".

It's a pretty name, I think - I can see why it got so popular. Hopefully it'll get a comeback.

A famous bearer is American actress Sharon Epatha Merkerson, better known as S. Epatha Merkerson (born November 28, 1952). She is perhaps best known for her role on "Law & Order" as Anita Van Buren, a role she has held since 1993 through the present. She is also well-known for her role in the 2005 HBO original movie "Lackawanna Blues", for which she won an Emmy, Golden Globe, and SAG Award. In addition, she has appeared on Broadway in "The Piano Lesson", for which she received a Tony Award nomination, and off-Broadway in "I'm Not Stupid", for which she received an OBIE Award.

I can't imagine this on males. Unfortunately, this name makes me think of rather unpleasant middle-aged women for some reason. It sounds a bit dated, and the sound is harsher than that of Shannon, which itself sounds a tad harsh because of the ''sha'' sound. It's not a terrible name by any stretch of the imagination, though, and it always beats infantile names like Keeley, Hailey, Poppy, and the likes, and especially ghetto and trailer trash names. Sharon Stone is a rather positive example of a person with this name, as she is attractive and intelligent without being arrogant and mean.

To me the name sounds more feminine pronounced SHA-ron, while sha-RON sounds more masculine.

The first famous Sharon, indeed one of the first bearers of the name, was a man, the English writer Sharon Turner (1768-1847).
-- Jonquil  8/16/2008
My name is too Sharon, some tell me that name is nice, but it's difficult a little to pronounce.
-- Sharon Opreni  8/24/2008
Classy, and not as common in my age group (mid thirties) as, say, a Stephanie or Jennifer! To me, Sharon is a step up and slightly more exotic than Sherry, which is lovely too, but softer. Good for a middle name, as well.

If you take away the first letter, it's Norah backwards.

My cousin's baby is named Sharon Faith. I like this pairing, though usually Sharon seems rather plain to me.
-- britto08  3/31/2009
It sounds like a middle aged prostitute's name.

Sharon Tate (1943-1969) is a famous bearer of this name. Sharon Tate was an American film actress of the 1960s. In life, she was noted for her beautiful good looks, her sexy roles in films like Valley of the Dolls, and her marriage to film director Roman Polanski. Sadly, she is probably most famous for her grisly death at the hands of the Manson Family in the summer of 1969. She was eight and a half months pregnant at the time of her murder.

I think this a fine name. Although it sounds a bit dated, it would still work well for a little girl.
In the social life simulator "Real Lives", I was born with this name as a girl in England. She completed collage with a degree in Sociology, married the first man she'd ever dated, and lived to the ripe old age of 81.

This would be an awesome nom-de-plume for someone named Karen. Then, if someone found out her identity they could say "Sharon is Karen!"
-- Bazinga  12/25/2011
A bit of a strange name to have as a child, but it's not too old fashioned either, and still has a bright, happy feel to it. It reminds me of someone who is a bit airy-fairy and happy-ever-after, but meh.
-- Hushpuppy  8/29/2012
This name is also used in The Netherlands, where it is either pronounced in the proper English way or in the proper Dutch way (it depends on which pronunciation the bearer's parents had chosen).

The Dutch pronunciation of the name is: shah-RON.
-- Lucille  1/11/2013
I like the Americanised pronunciation Sher-un. Once described as the most powerful woman in rock, Sharon Osbourne; Israeli PM, Ariel Sharon; ground breaking award winning author Sharon Creech; oscar nominated/award winning actresses Sharon Stone and Sharon Gless. Powerful, intelligent and sassy. How many other names can boast of having a biblical place, flower and fruit called after it. A simple, pretty name, still popular in places such as America, Canada and Israel.
