Comments for STEPHANIE:

This is my name, and I like it well enough... although I might prefer something a little more dramatic, like Stefania. ;)
-- Mommy2B  4/15/2005
I really HATE this name! I just don't understand why this horrid name is so popular now.
-- Anonymous User  4/26/2005
This is my name. I really like it. I don't know, I just think it's so pretty.
-- Anonymous User  5/22/2005
I'm not sure I like this name - it's my name, but it's such a strange name if you think about it. All the other girls at my school are named Katie or Emma, and I'm just Stephanie.
-- Anonymous User  5/23/2005
I think Stephanie is a completely boring and typical name. It doesn't seem to have much meaning behind it. So, that's why I named my daughter Eadon (it's pronounced like the Garden of EDEN, and it's Celtic for Nurse Of Poetry). I think it's a beautiful and unique name. I wish my parents would have given me something more unique to match my personality.
-- punk_goddess  6/17/2005
It's a really cool name and I love being called Steph. Hardly anyone in my school is called it and I'm really proud. It's fab!

This is also the name of the girl on Full House; Stephanie Tanner. Like it says it's a feminine form of Stephen, which comes from a Greek word meaning "crown." I've always liked boy names for girls.
-- Tbird  6/30/2005
I think it's an absolutly wicked name and so pleased my mum called me that! It's nice to be unique although it's irritating being called Stephen in the register!

I used to hate my name, Stephanie, until I heard the Velvet Underground's song--"Stephanie Says".
-- fab5  7/22/2005
I agree. Stephanie Says is a wonderful song and I really like my name. My nickname is Wef, and that's what most people call me, I'm not sure why, but I'm fine with it!

Stephanie is my name, and it's an alright name to have. Mostly I find it kind of boring. It doesn't have much of a meaning and is very popular. I once had five girls in a 22 person class with the same name as me, which led to confusion and embarassment. The teacher ended up calling some of them by nicknames and calling me by my last name, which I always found vaguely insulting. On top of that a lot of school paperwork had me down as Stephan, and I'd get called it during role, which meant more awkwardness. I think the name is pretty enough, but wish I'd been called something more unique.

I have always liked my name, growing up I was the only person in school (both primary and secondary). Friends call me Steph which is cool by me, but I find it really rude when strangers asume it's ok to shorten your name without asking. I like it when people ask to spell your name. It means it's not common or over used.
-- spudlove  10/27/2005
I believe the name means flower garland worn in the hair.
-- spudlove  10/27/2005
After reading these comments that everyone left on the name Stephanie I have to disagree with ALMOST everyone. I love this name. I was named after my aunt who died when she was 2 of heart failure. This name has very special meaning to me. I have to agree with Fab5, I also love the song Stephanie Says. I think that everyone with the name Stephanie should stop and think how unique you could make your nickname that could come out of Stephanie. Instead of complaining to all the people on this website how the name Stephanie is stupid and common. Make something out of it as your nickname.
-- fuddfudd123  11/15/2005
I know a couple people named Stephanie and I don't think it's such a bad name. It's kind of pretty!
-- cowgirl  12/19/2005
This is my name and I absolutely hate it. It's way too common and I hate the way it sounds. I think the only reason why I was named Stephanie is because my dad's name is Stephen. I don't think my mom even likes it because she calls me Tiffany instead.
-- Anonymous User  1/5/2006
My name is Stephanie and I like the name except for the fact that there are so many Stephanies at my school that when my name is called I end up ignoring it half the time because it's always someone else. I'm usually called Steph or Stephanie and I'm fine with that, but I get on to people when they call me Stephy.
-- BloodyRose  1/25/2006
My name is Stephanie, and I like it very much. It's unique and has a lot of history behind it.

On the Saddle Club, one of the charaters' name is Stephanie but she grew up with brothers so she goes by Stevie.
-- Anonymous User  1/31/2006
Stephanie is a common name. My friends usually just call me Stevie because it isn't used as much.
-- Anonymous User  2/4/2006
Stephanie is a beautiful name, its meaning is crown. It is a special name and not one that you hear too often. I think the worst thing that happens to this elegant name is that it is misspelled quite often. Whatever your name may be you should be proud and carry it well, after all your parent(s) with great love named you. I am honored to carry this name.
-- Agape_45  2/7/2006
I love this name. It flows. The letters are not to sharp. They are soft. This name rocks!

Stephanie is a pretty name, elegant and regal. Definitely has been a very popular name but it is no wonder why.

I like this name! But I had bad experiences with girls with this name. But that's not going to change my view of this name. It sounds beautiful and sophisticated, it's just that there are some wrong bearers.

It can also be spelled Stephenie like the author of the book Twilight.

I've got 2 friends named Stephanie. It's a bit too popular for my liking.

I absolutely hate it! My name is evil and horrible! It is plain, common, long, and stupid! I want to murder my mother for giving me this extremely horrible and stupid name!

It's pretty, but too typical.

My best friend's name is Stephanie. I like the name's meaning. When I think of her and her name I see a picture of a queen with a crown that's tipped.

Stephanie Plum is the head character of the novels by Janet Evanovich. My sister's name is Stephanie and she actually resembles the one in the book. It's an okay name, but my sister is called Steffie and personally I find that a bit childish. But, ever tried to get rid of a nickname?!

Stephanotis is a small, delicate, trumpet-shaped white flower, very popular in bridal bouquets.
-- elizabeth hamlet  1/22/2007
I like my name, Stephanie. Growing up in the 70's-80's, I knew no-one with the same name. Finally, as a senior in high school, a freshman came with the same name. It was not overused or popular back then. It was unique, and I'm happy to have it. I also like the nickname, Steph, but my closest friends and family call me Stephie or Steph Ann.
-- audemdom  2/5/2007
This name is getting really common, though it is pretty. "Steph" is a good nickname, but if you want your nickname to be unique, "Stevie" would work. It is not too masculine and very few Stephanies have it.
-- CharlieRob  5/9/2007
This is my name and I like it a lot. There's a couple girls in my school called Stephanie, but I don't really mind. It's the name my parents gave me and I am proud of it.

I think this name is just boring! It's not very interesting!

I love the name Stephanie. Probably because one of my favourite actresses is Stephanie Beacham.

This is my name, and I didn't really like it until recently. This name is REALLY popular, but I've only met two other people with this name!

When I was younger (1970's), I hated the name as I was the only one with it. As I have gotten older it has gained popularity and is now commonplace. My friends call me Steppy or SteppyAnn (Ann is my middle name) and I like these nicknames just fine. I used to have a teacher who did not know how to shorten the name and wrote STEP on all my papers. Weird!
-- Anonymous User  8/6/2007
I'm shocked to read that so many people hate my name. I really do love it, even if it is very common. I honestly was never too fond of my name, mainly because it was so common -- there was always one other person with my name. Today, I'm acquainted with several other girls who share my name. However, I've grown to love my name. I think it's pretty, simple, elegant and lovely. There's nothing harsh about its sound, and I love its meaning. Can you get any better than "regal" or "crown?" Talk about forcing people to treat you like the royalty you always knew you were. I'm kidding, of course, but I do enjoy the meaning.

And I personally prefer being called Steph, though some close to me like to call me Anie (pronounced "AHN-ee"), which I don't mind at all. It's unique, and it's got a pretty sound to it.
-- stillunwritten  9/21/2007
Since Stephan means Crown, CORONA is the meaning for Stephanie. CROWN etymology references BEND, or Curve. This is a good name if you want your daughter to have that bendy hourglass figure.
-- jaydubyo  10/5/2007
STEPHANOTIS is a woodvine that BENDS/Curves around a tree.
-- jaydubyo  10/5/2007
It's alright, I guess. My name, actually. I find I meet a lot of other Stephanies and it kind of bothers me (it was in the top ten when I was born, so there's a LOT.) And in conjunction with my other names, it's really long. My full name is 26 letters long.

I almost always use 'Steph' instead - 'ie' names always sound so ultra-feminine to me, and I'm not. I've heard 'Stevie' used as a pet name, too.
-- skid  11/15/2007
This is my name. I always hated it, I guess being called Step-on-me was enough to ruin it for me.

I don't really like this name. It sounds a bit ''serious'' and stuck up, even if the people named this aren't like that. It's not a pretty name. I much prefer variants like Stefania. You can't get any decent nicknames out of this name either. I hate Steph and dislike Stevie, which sounds like the nickname of a little boy named Steve.
-- slight night shiver  5/7/2008
This is my name, and I think it's very pretty! I didn't like it much when I was little, but I've grown to really love it. It's something you can grow up with- when you're little, your family and friends can call you 'Steph' or 'Stephy', and when you're older, and you want to be taken seriously, Stephanie is perfect. Stephanie Ann- quite lovely.
-- Anonymous User  7/19/2008
This is my first name, and I like it just fine. It wasn't at all popular where I was born (in the South of England) and growing up I only knew one other girl with this name. Also lends itself to a bunch of nicknames. :D Most people call me Stephy, which I think is fairly cute.

I was named, incidentally, after Stevie Nicks, from Fleetwood Mac. ;) My dad was a fan.

Why all the hate for this name?! My best friend is named Stephanie, I think it's a rather nice name. Not snobby like Elizabeth or Victoria, and not commonplace like Jennifer and Rachel.

This is also a Greek name.
-- deatheater1408  5/26/2009
Stephanie is my name and I like it well enough, it's just that I wish my parents would've stuck to their guns and named me Holly, like they were going to. Then again, the name Stephanie can go through many stages. For example: until I was about 7 years old, people called me Stephy [which is a cute little name.] Then until I was about 10 years old, people called me Steph [which is a more mature form than Stephy, but not quite Stephanie.] Finally, now that I am 14 years old, people call me Stephanie [which shows that I'm 'mature enough' to not have cute little nicknames, although, I wouldn't completely object to having a nickname now.] Just goes to show how much a name can say about a person's maturity. ^_^
-- Aya2013  7/5/2009
I went to high school with a girl named Stephanie, but we all called her Stevie. (She'd always tell new people, "Call me Stevie, like Stevie Knicks.") Anyway, I've always liked the way the name sounds, but I prefer the spelling Stephany, actually.

AWFUL name! This name absolutely screams "Hi, I'm a shallow stupid little twit! Teeheehee!" The only name that's worse is Tiffany, but this one comes REALLY close. If you name your daughter this, you're basically asking the world to dismiss her as a silly little girl and never take her seriously as a strong, intelligent woman.

I have mixed feelings towards this name. On one hand, it makes me think of a snobby cheerleader; on the other hand, a close friend of mine bears this name, so she gives a good impression. I'm torn over here.
-- Black_X  5/5/2010
This is my name and I love it! I get called either Steph or Stephanie, but I hate it when people call me Stephie! Makes me feel like a child when they call me that.

I don't know anyone else with this name, I feel quite unique!

-- Chrila96  12/25/2010
I like my name pretty well and there weren't that many Stephanie's in any of the schools I went to (traveled a lot thanks to the army!) Friends usually call me Steph.

I like how it flows with my middle name Tamara. Just don't call me "Stephy". I hate being called that. It reminds me of baby talk.
-- pksteph  3/31/2011
"Stephanie," simply said, is just a horribly everyday, dull in sound, boring, slightly ugly, and even childish, name. In the 1990s I remember being utterly engulfed unwillingly with the millions of Steph/Stephanie/Stephany/Stephies that flocked my hometown. The immediate thought that enters my mind is the resemblance it holds to "Step-On-Me"... I am sure that mindset follows that of school-children.

I will not go as far as to say that it is "unprofessional," per se. After all, you could have been another "Nevaeh" atrocity.
-- Francesca  5/26/2011
Being Stephanie, I find this name to be nice. I like the way it flows. Sadly, being a 90s child when this name was at the height of popularity annoys me to no end. It has been a little better now that I finished high school.

One teacher decided to call me "pH" because there was another Stephanie in the class who spelled it Stefanie. Yet the worst case scenario was in High school, when a girl was named Stephanie AND she had my last name as well. Thankfully she was a year older than me, but I was plagued by calls to the office only to discover that they weren't for me, but for the other girl.

She had a middle name. Thankfully I was never given one, because when I asked my mother what it would have been, we would have had the SAME EXACT NAME.

Part of me likes this name, but part of me dislikes it because it just feels unoriginal and sometimes boring. Especially when plagued by someone else with the same last name, and potentially the same middle name. In the past I wished that my parents had put a little more thought into naming me. I don't wish for this as strongly anymore, but I still haven't completely gotten over this name.

Don't name your child Stephanie. It's nice, but there are many other cute names that are more original and flow just as nicely.
-- Anonymous User  6/22/2011
Being born in an era of Stephanies, I am so over this name and very thankful that my mom didn't name me Stephanie like every 3rd girl born back then. I remember one girl actually being teased, weird I know since it's a common name, kids called her "Step-on-me" and Step-on-nie".
-- GibsonGirl  8/21/2011
I have the name Stephanie and I was always told that it means: Crown.
-- stephb223  8/25/2011
I love the name Stephanie, I don't know why all these people are being so rude and obnoxious. You should be grateful for the name you were given and stop sounding like a spoiled brat. It's my name and I love it. It means 'crown' and I'm proud of that. My friends call me Steph or Weff and sometimes Weffer-Steffer. I adore it and I can't understand why all the people who were lucky enough to be a Stephanie are misrepresenting their name and being jerks.
-- stephb223  8/25/2011
I used to hate my name. People have called me Steph all my life, which sounds kind of harsh and isn't feminine at all. But it sounds different once people start calling you Stephanie. I decided to go by that recently and it makes a big difference. I love it.
-- Clovershot  2/5/2012
I do not hate the name, but I never was crazy about my name either, because it is so common. All my life I would be in the same room as another Stephanie and somebody would call out, "Stephanie!" I would turn around only to find out it was not for me. I have gotten to where I do not answer to "Stephanie!" in a crowded place because of this problem. There are at least two other Stephanies at work, and when one of the managers calls "Stephanie" I wonder, which one. The popularity of this name can be more of an annoyance than anything else about it. I went by Stevie for a long time and I like it, and I also like just being "Steph." I personally don't like being called "Stephie" because it reminds me of baby talk. Overall I think Stephanie is a classy name, but if you name your daughter that, be prepared (because of how common it is).
-- St.ClairK59  2/20/2012
I know a few people called Stephanie and I think it is a beautiful name but I wouldn't call my daughter Stephanie because I think it is just too common, although I love the idea of using male names for females. I call my close friend whose name is Stephanie "Stephie" and I think it's really cute.

I hate this name. Sorry, nothing personal to any Stephanies out there but, to me, this name is in the same category as Mary or Jennifer... so common and just plain BORING. If I had to pick the top 5 names I find truly ugly, this name would be on it. The nickname Steph isn't any better.
-- Bajafresh  2/3/2014
There are 4 in my school year alone!
I guess it's a nice enough name, with Stephy being a cute nickname, but it's just so common in my age-group in the UK that I don't really like it.
Of the Stephanies I know, I've met a couple who's personalities leave a little to be desired if I'm honest, so that did put me off the name slightly.
-- Bee123  2/7/2014
I theorize that the "ph' the Stephanie is due to it being the common Greek "Double ff" However the male rendition of Stephen said Stee-Ven is due to the Gaelic influence of the British Isles and is "ph" only bearing one voiced F like in the word OF said "uV" The dominance of the name Stephen said Stee-Ven influenced Stephanie to share in the short Steve or Stevie.
-- Stephen1976  3/14/2014
My name is Stephanie, although acquaintances/friends/teachers call me Steph. Growing up I have felt a bit ambivalent toward the name. I really like its meaning and I think it sounds soft and flows nicely. It is definitely pretty, but as others have said, it is also rather common. I sometimes wish that there weren't so many other girls in my grade with the name. As for Steph, while I don't consider it as nice-sounding or feminine as Stephanie, it does suit me more. Stevie and Stephie are also fun nicknames, but would not work in a mature setting (unless you are a certain rockstar...)
-- entrelaza  3/29/2014
I have a love-hate relationship with my name. I love it because being a child born in '99, I do not and have not run into the problem of having a girl with the same name at school, besides perhaps my late 20- and early 30-year-old teachers at school. Late 20 and early 30 year olds seem to be the most popular group that bear this name. I hate it because it's too girly and feminine to fit my personality. I also hate it because people ALWAYS ask you "is that with a 'ph' or 'f'?" OR "is that with a 'y' or 'ie'?" Gosh dang it, it's spelled the plain old fashioned way! To all of my Stefanies, Stephanys, and Stefanys out there, your parents are the contributors to my perpetual annoyance towards people who have to ask me this question. Why does everyone feel like they have to give their kid's traditional name a unique twist? You only make it rough on them and the other kids who spell it the "normal" way. Haha.
-- NotStephanie  5/21/2014
It's painfully common, but it's beautiful to the ear. When my lovely sister was given this name, it was at the height of popularity, so she was called Stephanie H. In school. I've known a handful of other Stephanies, too. They're everywhere! (Stephanies out to take over the world, perhaps?!) Despite its excessive usage, it's very pretty.
