Just so you know, there's only ONE God! I can't imagine anyone naming their child Trinity.
-- Anonymous User  8/15/2005
One God, yes. The Christian belief is 3 people in one God. The Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit. People do not name their child this to be a heretic, it is a pretty name and not disrespectful.

My daughter's name is Trinity. It's a beautiful name. She is beautiful! I can name my children what ever I like!!

I named my daughter Tinity Virginia. Yes I know it all means Father, son, holy ghost and then virgin. Didn't mean for it to come out this way. Trinity was just a favorite among my husband and I. Then Virginia was his grandma's name. But, to the fellow or gal who doesn't understand why anyone one would want to name their child Trinity. I am sure they have been called worse.

No doubt the spike in popularity with the name Trinity has to do with the rise of fundamentalist Christianity in the United States.

I can do whatever I please myself to do! If that means calling my daughter Trinity then so be it. You don't own the rights of others!

I think it's a wonderful way to remind people that Jesus is the ONLY way to the Father and if we follow after the Holy Spirit we will not be ashamed when we stand before Him.

I believe that the name is beautiful. It is a beautiful name and I take pride in having the name Trinity because it is unique.

My cousin's name is Trinity. I did not like it at first but now it is okay. Her brother's name is Dylan and I was not a big fan of that name either.

I named my beautiful daughter Trinity from the old western movie "Trinity, and Trinity is still my Name" because I liked that name. No one is going to tell me that it is bad to name her that because of God, I love god as our only god and I will would still name my daughter Trinity today.

This is yet another fad name forced upon unfortunate little girls. I knew a burly guy in high school named Trinity and I thought the name suited him. For females, however, it's just plain weird. Since we're on the subject of religion here, what's that the Bible says about having a good name? (Yes, I know it's in reference to reputation rather than what your Mama picked out of a baby name book, but still...)

Hmmm...lots of contraversy about this name. I think this is a nice name for either boys or girls. My best friend named her son this and I think it suits him just fine. Also, on the subject of religion, the Trinity symbol is used for various religions. Not just Christianity, but Wiccan and Pagan as well. In these religions the symbol represents the three-fold goddess in the three stages of life - maiden, mother, and crone and the circle stands for the never-ending lifecycle (life, death and rebirth). I also wear the triquetra symbol everyday, simply because I like celtic jewelry and I think it is a beautiful symbol (the point of this statement is that religion doesn't have anything to do with why I wear it or why many people decide to name their child this; we do it simply because we like it).
-- Arieanne  2/27/2006
I am a Christian yet I would never give my child this name or a name like Genesis etc. We don't know what or how our children will believe when they grow up and I don't want to impose my beliefs on them by saddling them with a name with such strong and differing opinions. Just my personal preference.
-- Anonymous User  5/17/2006
Religion aside, just the name Trinity itself is a pretty name and too feminine for me to be used for a boy.
-- Anonymous User  5/29/2006
It's a pretty name. People shouldn't make such a conflict about this name because it has to do with religion. Seriously, I wouldn't be bothered by it, but that's just me. There's nothing wrong with this name. Others should come to respect the fact that parents will want to name their child Trinity.
-- MusicRat  7/8/2006
I have to agree with the above 2 users, Trinity is a very beautiful name. I wish it were my name.
-- Anonymous User  7/21/2006
I like the name. My brother said that if he ever had a daughter he would name her Trinity. Neither of us were raised religious - he just likes the way it sounds. I do too. I think the sudden popularity of it is making him take it off the list, which is unfortunate to hear because I think it's such a pretty and unique name.

Trinity appeared on the top 1000 list in the 1970's. It came back on the top 1000 list in the 1990's. Its most popular year was 2004 and 2005 where it ranked 48.

Trinity is such a beautiful name!
-- Luangi  4/10/2007
It's OK. It's not a bad name, but I don't think it's great either.
-- scarletquillraven  5/8/2007
I plan on naming my first daughter Trinity, I liked it before I knew it was religious. I also like it as a boy name, I had a friend that was named Trinity.
-- joanie2007  6/25/2007
I love it, but for a boy only.
-- tigerlilly  9/20/2007
I like this name, but only for a girl. I knew a woman who named her daughter Trinity, not for religious meanings, but to represent their family-the Trinity of Mother, Father, and Child. I thought that was cool. Trinity does not necessarily have a religious meaning. It can just mean a group of three. That's what this woman and her boyfriend were going for.
-- harry_sent_me  9/24/2007
I'm Christian, but I can't imagine naming my kid Trinity. I've never even heard of this name. Weird name for weirdos.
-- johann14  9/25/2007
It's a pretty name with a nice meaning, but for some reason I just couldn't imagine naming a person this.
-- thebyrd  10/20/2007
I think Trinity is such a beautiful name. I love the sound of it. There's a girl at school named Trinity. If I ever have a daughter, I want to name her this!
-- cloudyaiden  11/6/2007
While I will try not to be mean, I can't help but be honest: I'm not a fan. I picture girls with this name as becoming the opposite of what their parents intended - rebellious, not chaste.
-- afmastro  11/16/2007
I don't like this name. When people say it, it almost always comes out pronounced "Trin-i-dee" instead of "Trin-i-tee".
-- Maro  2/22/2008
Sounds like a stripper's name.
-- jasmineenimsaj  3/2/2008
This is such a beautiful name. I think I might use it as a middle name if I ever have a daughter.
-- number1212  4/26/2008
Now, if you couldn't speak English, you might think that this name sounds pretty, so there's no reason not to use it. Also, if you happened to be an English speaker who's spent his or her life under a rock and doesn't have the slightest clue about Christianity, you might think this is a cool, interesting name, even though you couldn't really understand what this ''Trinity'' thing is supposed to be. Of course, the people who use this tacky, corny, pompous name on their child know exactly what the ''Trinity'' refers to. Thus it's easy to guess that any parent using this name for their child is a religious nut, and wants the world to know it. So much so they'll incorporate their beliefs into the names of their children. If Trinity grows up to be an atheist, well, that's a funny thought indeed. She'll have to change her name if she ever becomes intelligent and ambitious and wants success.

I really love the name Trinity. My two year old niece is named this. As a Christian, the Trinity of father, son and holy spirit are important in my faith. Naturally, the word Trinity used as a name is meaningful. Names are personal. A parent has the incredible privelege of choosing one for their child. That's only one of their very first tasks as a parent though. The rest of their child's young years they teach them about everything. Every parent teaches their child something. Be it Christianity, atheism, whatever, they're teaching them from their perspective. Throughout history people have named their children names that are meaningful to them often because of their faith. I pray that my little niece is blessed enough to understand someday what drew her parents to pick her name. It's part of her and her legacy. It is up to her what she does with that.
-- mom2zeke  7/6/2008
I hate this name. It sounds so trashy. It also sounds like Trinity will be forever stuck in the trailer park. The morons using it are also trying to force an ultra-religious term onto their daughter. I can't think of many things which are more insensitive or even outright blasphemous. That's why you should not name your daughter Trinity. There are other names out there.
-- bananarama  7/28/2008
This hardly sounds like a stripper name, more like a roleplay name to be honest.
-- tiny_clever_outlet  10/4/2008
I'm sorry, but as pretty as Trinity sounds. As a Christian, I think naming your child Trinity is very pompous.
-- erb816  12/14/2008
All the pseudo-religious names are strippery names. Imagine Nevaeh, Trinity, Chastity, Genesis, and Angel all in one club.
-- eschantie  12/15/2008
I think that this is a classy, delicate, and beautiful name. I don't think that everyone who names their daughter it is a "religious-nut", even though I wouldn't necessarily name my child it. I don't think that using it as a boy's name is as nice, but I can see it. Also, I know a little girl who is named this, and I loved it right away.
-- smiilebiigerx3  1/14/2009
Trinity is a beautiful name that just has that certain something. I know one girl named Trinity, and she is, for lack of a better term, awesome. To me, it's stupid that someone would think this is a stupid name just because they're ignorant theophobes who're too haughty for their own good.
-- magicalhannah7  3/8/2009
I'm very fond of this name, it sounds beautiful---I would love to name a character this. I truly hope it doesn't make me trailer trash or a religious nut if I want to use it! =P
-- CanadianChibi  5/6/2009
Trinitarian doctrine, historically defined, never described GOD as existing in "three states of being." That is, rather, the age old heresy of modalism. The definition of the "Trinity" is, again historically, that GOD exists as "three persons" in a single state of being.
-- Theowulf  7/2/2009
"Trinnie" could be a cute nickname.
-- Mary Jack  7/16/2009
This name is beautiful. Simple but beautiful. And if you are asking me, it has a beautiful meaning!
-- enchy  8/14/2009
In addition to the obvious reference to the Deity in Christian doctrine, Trinity also was the name given to the world's first nuclear test detonation, about 35 miles southeast of Socorro, New Mexico, in 1945.

The Trinity Foundation is an organization based in Dallas, Texas, that advocates for the homeless and that has made a name for itself as a watchdog on televangelists.
-- marauder34  12/7/2009
I like the sound and spelling of it, but the meaning isn't nice. Too bad.
-- Anonymous User  12/26/2009
Trinity is the name of one of my nieces (Well, actually, the daughter of one of my cousins), and I absolutely love it. It's such a sweet and pretty name for a girl. You don't even have to be Christian to love it- personally, I'm agnostic, borderline atheist. And yet I still love the name.

It's quite unique, as well. I've only met one or two people with the name, at least around here.

And even if you don't want to use it as a given name, it would make a lovely middle name. It's quite versatile when it comes to combination with other names, so you can come up with a very beautiful name.

And to Christians, Catholics, and people that fall into any of the branches of either one of those religions, I'm sure it's a very meaningful and powerful name. However, I would not name your child this if you did it only for the meaning- it makes you look pretentious, pompous, and potentially gives off the impression that you're trying to put pressure on your child to believe what you believe. If you're a Christian and simply like the sound of the name, then that's fine.

That said, I noticed there was one person -actually, a few people- ranting about the name being pagan or the kind of name only a religious nut would name their child.

First of all, the meaning doesn't even state that there are three Gods, but that there's three. I guess incarnations of God. Which would be God (the creator), Jesus (His son, according to Christian belief, and historically the one that really spread the Christian ideas and beliefs throughout his area of Europe), and the "Holy Spirit", which I'm assuming is the entity in Heaven. I think the name implies that they are all one and the same. I could be wrong, but then again, I haven't really sat down and read the whole Bible because. I am not Christian. I don't follow a specific religion. This is only to my understanding, and please do not take offense to this. If you do, don't call me out on it. Chances are, I will ignore you.

That being said, I am not a religious nut or Bible-thumper. Yet if I could ever have children or if I even wanted to, and if it weren't for the fact my niece is named Trinity, this would definitely be one of the names on my list of possible baby names. As previously stated, it sounds sweet, it's unique, and it's very versatile when combining it with other names. And on the subject of my niece, her parents aren't Christian either. Their stance on belief is much the same as mine. So I know I'm not the only weird non-Bible-thumping person out there that likes the name and would definitely consider it as a name worth giving to a child.

In short: In my opinion, it's a lovely name, and people should stop making mountains out of molehills when it comes to it.
-- Mothetree  4/21/2010
I'm a believer, and the name has a lovely meaning, but it just sounds so stripper-ish!
-- Black_X  6/27/2010
I’ve known a few families who’ve used this as a masculine name, and I knew one of their sons who was named that, so I suppose it can be used a boy’s name.
-- MattLin  7/28/2010
This name is so stupid.
-- Anonymous User  10/3/2010
Trinity is my daughter's name. She is sure that she corrects anyone who pronounces it Trin-i-dee. "MY NAME IS TRINITY, WITH A T NOT A D." She says. It is a lovely name and we did not name her because of religion. Although when people hear her middle name they jump to the conclusion that it's a religious name. Trinity Christine... named by my military die-hard husband for the nuclear test site and his aunt Chris. A plus is it's a nice throw back to my Irish roots which aren't that far down. It is a bit stripper-ish, I guess, but a name cannot dictate a person's direction in life and only judgmental people make assumptions based on a name.
-- wise3.1  11/18/2010
It sounds very pretty, and unlike Faith and Destiny it doesn't have as many bad associations. But I'm an atheist so I may either a) be mistaken for a Christian/Wiccan or b) be verbally bashed for using the name or c) both.

Either way, your child chooses their religion - it's generally wrong to chose it for them.
-- Anonymous User  8/14/2011
This is just as bad as Genesis. People, if you want a Christian name, choose a nice one from the Bible instead of this crap! It sounds like a character in a Final Fantasy video game.
-- Anonymous User  3/13/2012
I don't see how using the name Trinity could honour one's Irish roots. Though the story of the Trinity being explained by the shamrock is associated with Ireland, there's nothing distinctively Irish about the concept of the Trinity - it is a general Christian idea. Trinity is not an Irish name, its origins are entirely English. The word itself derives from Latin "trinitas", via Old French "trinité". The name itself was popularised in the USA and Canada by the 1999 film The Matrix, where it is borne by the character Trinity, played by actress Carrie-Anne Moss.
-- Anonymous User  7/28/2012
I never liked this name and always thought it sounded trashy, childish, and trendoid. It's also one of those names I can't really picture matched with a surname.
-- Anyechka  5/28/2013
I'm gonna use this for a character in my new story, I think the name will be... Trinity Red. =) She'll have red hair and red eyes. Lol...
-- PrincessMegganJ  11/12/2013
STRIPPER NAME ALERT

I'm sorry, but any name ending in 'ity' (with the exception of Felicity) sounds stripperesque. This goes for Chastity, Charity, Purity etc. Aswell. Ironic when you consider the meanings.
-- Anonymous User  2/17/2014
DO NOT NAME YOUR SON TRINITY! I'm a guy named after the old western "they call me Trinity"... although almost nobody knows about that movie, certainly nobody in my own generation. My name has been like a curse all my life and I absolutely hate it with a passion. Don't name your kids Trinity, male or female, it's a tacky trailer trash name. Name your kid something normal. Remember that name will follow them around for the rest of their lives.

“From the English word Trinity, given in honour of the Christian belief that God has three states of being: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.”

Hello, I just came over here from wolfram alpha, and it appears to be using your site as its source. Nothing wrong with that, but the above phrase has a few flaws.

The only “Christians” who would say, “God has three states of being” would be called “Modalists”. Modalists don’t believe in the doctrine of the Trinity.

To accurately represent what the doctrine teaches, the phrase should say, “...the Christian belief that God exists as one being, with three distinct persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.”

I've heard of people who follow pagan faiths such as Wicca using this name to represent their "divine Trinity" of Goddesses: Maiden, Mother, and Crone. While it may be more often used to represent the Christian idea of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, that isn't the only religious meaning to this beautiful name.
