I LOVE the name Star. There is a goddess in Africa by the name of Astar, and she is a love goddess. I also love "Star" because it makes people think of love and mystery.

This is a hideous name.

You would have to be mad to give a girl this name.

My aunt was going to name her daughter Starr but it ended up being a boy. I'm kind of impartial to the name but don't think it's horrible. It could grow on me, but never be a favorite.

"Star" in Bulgarian means "old". The longest and the largest mountain in Bulgaria is "Stara planina" ("Old Mountain") also called (the) "Balkan". "Stara planina" (750 km) stretches from the eastern part of Serbia to the Black Sea, the Bulgarian part of the mountain is 550 km.

A notorious bearer of a variant of the name, Starr, was Starr Faithfull, a 1920's party girl whose mysterious death made headlines during the Jazz Age.

Star is a very exotic name, but technically there's no sense in it.
FairyGirl  6/25/2006
This is a wonderful name. Simple and beautiful. I've known two Stars. I also think this would be a good middle name.
gigibee  7/10/2006
Overall, I like this name, and I don't think it's at all ludicrous.
Nicola17  7/21/2006
I like the name, but if you want to convey the same meaning, why not name your daughter Stella? It sounds more like a name, and she would probably get less teasing that way.

If you have twins, it would be a great idea to name them Star and Stella. This is because Stella means "star".
Taydbug112  11/16/2006
I don't like this name at all for a girl. For a boy, UGH! If you have this name, you are shiny, right? :D
libbygirl  12/19/2006
This is a unisex name.

Star Manning is the teenage character on daytime TV's "One Life to Live".
Missy  1/8/2007
I agree that it makes a great middle name.

I love stars, and they're very nice, but I think a person named after them is a little bit tacky.
7up  2/19/2007
It's kind of tacky and makes me think of Star Jones. Which is never a good thing.
― Anonymous User  2/23/2007
Lovely. As a middle name. My mom has a cousin whose name was Star Camper, which I think is cute. And I grew up with a little redheaded girl named Star (but her real name was La Star. Ew). But I really like this as a middle name.

Star reminds me of some ditzy blonde girl who lives in Beverly Hills and tries to live up to her name.

I love it. This name goes right up there with Luna. It's great. And why say 'you'd have to be mad'? I think it's LOVELY.
stormy_lovegood  11/8/2007
I hate random words (Grace, Joy, Heaven, Faith, Destiny, Comfort, etc.) that become names.
jasmineenimsaj  3/1/2008
I like this name, but only as a middle. I think it'd make a very good middle name but not a good first name, for a first name I like Stella which means Star.

This is the stage surname of Ringo Starr, the drummer for The Beatles, and a member of the Order of the British Empire. His real name is Richard Starkey.

There was also a tertiary character on the Nickelodeon cartoon Danny Phantom known as Starr (she didn't have a last name).
maxwelledison  3/13/2008
This name is very exotic, but I don't like the fact that it is rats backwards.
― Anonymous User  4/19/2008
It's quite funny how this name is always chosen by trailer trash and ghetto parents. Stars are nice to look at on the sky, so it's sort of an interesting paradox that this name is associated with trash. Well, let's face it, people: this name is extremely tacky. It sounds like the name trailer trash people and ghetto residents pick for their daughter in the superstitious nomen ist omen sort of fashion, hoping that they'll get to live ''the good life'' when their daughter becomes a country singer, trash talk show host, r'n'b singer.

I think Star would be a nice name for a horse or bunny, but for a person it's just plain weird.
― Anonymous User  5/8/2008
This sounds pretentious as a person's name. It shows that the parents want their daughter to be a celebrity. And if she doesn't (or doesn't want to be one), what will the parents do?
bananarama  8/16/2008
I had two pet rats. One called Star, the other Dash. I really love the name 'Star' but my partner won't let me use it if we have a daughter for obvious and already stated reasons above. :(

In the 1987 film Lost Boys, Star is a main character's name.

This name makes me think of "Ringo Star", so I think of it more as a boys name.
camilana646  4/18/2009
I much prefer Stella, which means the same thing.
― Anonymous User  6/17/2009
Sorry, kind of trashy.
CharlieRob  7/13/2009
I once had a friend whose mom had a twin sister. The mom was Angel, and the aunt was Star. I always thought those were cool twin names, and I really like both of them. (Though today, I prefer Angel on a boy, actually.)
erb816  7/25/2009
It is very tacky. Like naming a kid Love or something.
― Anonymous User  3/15/2010
I used this for my daughter Elizabeth's middle name. I wanted a name that was short and pretty and since most people don't use their middle names, I chose Star because it's kind of different and not overused.
― Anonymous User  4/2/2010
Very tacky, in my opinion. Also, I dislike the fact that it spells "rats" backwards.
Athena Nike  4/4/2010
I have a friend named Star and I think it's a very nice name. Simple and unique, it doesn't sound trashy at all to me.

This is Venus Ebony Starr Williams' name. Famous tennis player.
earthangel  3/6/2011
When I was very little I had two of the same Barbie doll and made them twins named Angel and Star. I thought the names were gorgeous and perfect...

After having grown up, I can say my taste (and the times) have changed. Star is quite tacky now, I agree. I think of bleached hair and blue eyeshadow.
Book_Reader22  3/25/2011
Although not my favorite, this is really pretty.
Joy12  5/3/2011
I always thought it was a unisex name, too. I know guys with this name. My name is Esther (and nicknamed Sturr) which has the same meaning and sounds sort of similar, but I don't like Star/Starr as a name.
EstherTester  1/24/2013
The 1934 Shirley Temple film "Captain January" featured Star Mason. [that was the character Temple played] I love this name.
anoldfashionedgirl  3/12/2013
Since "Star" is considered a tacky name in the US, I wonder if in Italy Stella (Star in Italian) is considered tacky..? (Obviously Stella is a much more beautiful and intellectual sounding name that Star and would make a great alternative if you like the meaning).
― Anonymous User  6/3/2013
134 poor little girls were given the name Star in 2012 in the US.

Um, poor? I think Star is a wonderful, beautiful name! They are fortunate enough to have an uncommon name.
― Anonymous User  6/21/2014
Sound: Very pretty. Short. Easy to remember
Originality: 10/10. Never heard this name before.
Spelling: Perfect.
Overall: I don't even need to read the comments to know a lot of people are hating on this name. Personally I think this a nice, beautiful name.
Gio123  10/12/2013
I personally wouldn't name my daughter this, but it is beautiful, and I love space and celestial beings, so to me it sparks an intrigue to look up in the sky and wonder. To me it sounds like the name would belong to someone who is happy, kind, bubbly and kind of mysterious.
_0TophasNails_1  2/4/2014
Unique! But still strange!
Hushpuppy  2/8/2014
To be honest, I think this name is pretty tacky. Definitely would not recommend. It's ten times better than the spelling Starr.

yememe413  3/8/2015
I am truly shocked so many people hate this name! My 8 year old daughter is called Star with the middle name Jane. I named her after the Jamie Gertz character in my favourite film, the Lost Boys. I think it is a gorgeous name, and I'm certainly not trailer trash, I'm a well educated English mother. I have had many people saying my daughters' name is beautiful.
reagan96  4/21/2015
I have encountered this name only once and it was on a guy living in British Columbia, Canada.
― Anonymous User  6/24/2015
My name is Starr. The name was a bit annoying to have when I was in elementary school, but living in Northern California, it isn't THE tackiest name here. I am half Persian and 'Star' translates into the very common Iranian name 'Setareh'. Now, a lot of people seem to like my name. I like my extra R, as it does seem a bit more like a name (and is a very common surname). It is a bit disappointing that many of my fellow Star/Starrs aren't the greatest... Starr Jones and Charles Manson's wife (it's also a name that pretentious girls change their name to- I've met a few weird Stars). I like to think I make up for it though! I'm a lover of science and prefer to think of my name for what it represents and that feels special. If you're going to raise an awesome kid, PLEASE, feel free to name her Starr! :-)

105 baby girls in the USA (2014) were given Star.
lilolaf  4/19/2016
The name Star was given to 92 girls born in the US in 2015.
HerculePoirot  6/14/2016
Love this name! I don't plan on naming my future daughter Star, but that's only because I've already used it for my cat's name, lol.
Brittanie Sidebottom  9/23/2016
This is my actual name. Seriously... I HATE it. Please do NOT name your child Star. Your child will be teased their entire life, even into their 40's. I am still annoyed with my mom for naming me Star. I want to change my name so bad. I am considering changing my name on FB so people quit messaging me and asking me about my name.
starw23  6/30/2017
My preferred name is Star. I love it and think it is unique. Also, I love that it is a celestial or nature name. It sounds beautiful too! Feel free to go by Star or name someone Star. :)
Starzodiac1  10/30/2017
I personally like the name. Star reminds me of the sun, light and brightness, which are denotations of shining, and I think I would see my child as the brightest thing in my life.
