There some girls called Vincent as well, and I think it’s pretty like that! I'm not fond of the masculine usage. I like Vincent for a girl, but not a boy. I know a little girl called Vincent and she’s adorable and girly. Her middle name is quite girly. She’s Vincent Elizabeth. Her mom told me her grandmother’s first name was Elizabeth to keep the family ancestor going. On a boy, it’s way too feminine and ugly for a male. No one's son should have this as his first, middle, or last name. It’s great as a girl’s first, middle, or last name. Don’t correct me and say brothers should have the same surname as sisters. I still want to dress my daughter up in girly clothes no matter whether her name is male or female. I don’t think this is a boys name on a girl, it’s a girl's name on a boy. Leave this to girls! There are so many names for boys to choose from, though there are more names for girls to choose from but girls rule so they deserve extra. Go girl power! Tee hee! I love this name for a girl but hate it on a boy, I especially hate the feminine form. I don’t think this name needs Vincentine, it’s enough feminine as it is!

That comment I made first was just a joke! This is actually a masculine name, not a feminine name. I was just inspired by that early commenter who said “there are some girls called Vincent as well”, and I hope those female Vincents have girly middle names. I’ve been inspired by these people who love boy names on girls, but I’m sure they would pair them with feminine middle names because they only want their first names to be traditionally boyish. I doubt they would take it too far and name her Vincent Hayden, they would do Vincent Tiana. They still love girl names. In case their daughters hated their boyish first names, they could go by their feminine middle name. Personally, if I gave girls boy names, I would give them girly middle names and not a boyish first and middle name. If I named my girl Michael which is masculine as I like boy names on girls, I wouldn’t hate girly names enough that I would give her a feminine middle name like Tiana. I still love this name, it’s handsome and strong. I only really love this on a boy. Names like Vincent would seem like too much for a girl unless paired with Tiana.

I feel like it’s usually the male names without any feminine usage that tend to get comments of it being suitable for girls like Patrick, Oliver, and Vincent, but then Alexander had some feminine usage on the POPULAR link. But no one said it can be used for girls. It’s fine. This name is nice though.

A very nice name, so dignified and masculine. I'm glad that it isn't very common. Hopefully the "kre8yve" idiots won't ever ruin the name with dumb spellings, or by thinking it's fine for girls (it's not.)

My impression is a careful one. While looking at the top of the page I noticed ITALIAN is not mentioned. In fact, it is the MOST popular to Italians out of all the ethnicities listed. One must be careful when listing the origins of the name. Most people in America, including myself (Vincent Mascaro), are Italian that use this name. One of the many misconceptions is that articles like this forget that, while most names are anglicized. That being said, stating "Vincent" origin as the listed ethnicities is not necessarily correct.

My parents are examples of naming me VINCENT instead of VINCENZO, which is the same exact name. My parents chose not to use VINCENZO (because I live in America not Italy), but this would have fooled you into thinking I must be something else.

I have researched this countless times in my life and this is one of the only interpretations to leave out the ethnicity that uses the name the most, Italians.

Love this name, this was my godfather's name. He passed away last year. This is genuinely a cool name! I like how it's old-fashioned and not common anymore. It's a very common name for Italians as well. I'm part Italian and there are a lot of Vincents on that side.

A lot of the Italian boys at my school are named some variant of Vincent, so I hear it a lot. I like it- not a lot or anything, but it's a masculine, classic name. Most of the Vincents I know go by Vinnie. There's one Vincent I know who goes by Vince, Vinnie and Vin. I like Vin the best, so I call him Vin.

My boyfriend's name is Vincent Francis. I love the name Vince or Vincent in it's full form. I don't like when people add "y" to nice masculine names. Michael, Vince, Joseph are so nice in full and sound much better than Mikey, Vinny or Joey. Yikes! Vincent is strong, dark and handsome. Love strong names on men. I think the full name conjures up more respect, especially when they get older.

I've always found Vincent an attractive name. Some people find it sinister, largely in part, I assume, because of actor Vincent Price. In the old 1940's movie, Mrs. Miniver, her oldest son is Vincent, called Vin. I really like Vin as a nickname. Of course now people would think of Vin Diesel, Vincent is his last name.

To the user Lemonana who said “there are also little girls named Vincent on 6/25/2007, I know what you mean. I think this name can be used for girls despite no historical feminine usage and it might have a feminine form. I think this would be a unique name for a girl. But traditionally, I think it would be better for a boy. I’m not claiming boy names on girls, it’s these users who inspire me with their unisex spirit. If I ever did name a girl Vincent, it would be cute, but I would go with a feminine middle name so she’s a girl. Teen moms inspired me to like boy names on girls, but I still love feminine names too!
