A bit pompous, but it's okay.

My name is Star and I think it is a good name because it means that your child is your light, hence the name Star.

This name is super weird. Why Star? There are so many beautiful alternatives to this name: Stella, Estelle, Estella, Danica, and Esther. In my opinion, Star is only suited for fictional characters. I'm sure the same people that like Star are the same people who think Justice is a trashy name.

There is a girl named Star on my favorite show: Star vs the Forces of Evil. I really want to name my future daughter Star. I don't think this name is hideous at all. I think it is very unique and rare.

I'm confused as to why people hate this name so much- I personally don't think it sounds tacky, and I guess it doesn't remind me of a "hollywood brat" because I can tell you I'm the opposite and have this name. I do get teased, but it's always playful and never intended negatively, so I don't mind. It's not trashy, tacky, or stupid- it's weird yeah, but in all honesty I'd keep this name before I would have "Beth" or "Kate". It's a simple name, easy to remember, and you probably won't meet too many people with it, either. I personally like it alright.

I can’t help but adore this name, it sounds gorgeous & a star itself is beautiful. I love it so much!

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.

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. :)

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.

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.

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! :-)

I have encountered this name only once and it was on a guy living in British Columbia, Canada.

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.

To be honest, I think this name is pretty tacky. Definitely would not recommend. It's ten times better than the spelling Starr.

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.

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.
Cheers!

Um, poor? I think Star is a wonderful, beautiful name! They are fortunate enough to have an uncommon name.

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).

The 1934 Shirley Temple film "Captain January" featured Star Mason. [that was the character Temple played] I love this name.

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.

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.

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.

Very tacky, in my opinion. Also, I dislike the fact that it spells "rats" backwards.

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.

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.)

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. :(

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?

I think Star would be a nice name for a horse or bunny, but for a person it's just plain weird.

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.

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).

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.

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

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.

It's kind of tacky and makes me think of Star Jones. Which is never a good thing.

If you have twins, it would be a great idea to name them Star and Stella. This is because Stella means "star".

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.

"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.

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.

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.
