Hate the pronunciation! Please just go with Antony or Anthony, it’s much, much, much, much better than this name.

It's alright, but I prefer Anthony. Also, I don't think of this name as ghetto. Spellings like Antwan, on the other hand...

Trashy spelling of Anthony. Name your child this if you don’t want them to get anywhere in life.

As a native Frenchman, I can say that this is a perfectly lovely name. It's such a shame that Americans think of it as an exclusively black name. It's even worse to see it butchered into spellings like Antwan, Antwon, or Antawn. I know lots of Antoines, both white and black. No one here regards Antoine as trashy. (On the contrary, Anthony is considered a bit trashy in France, since it's an English form of a name that already has a common French form, and most anglophones wouldn't consider Anthony trashy.)

Antoine Merriweather was an effeminate gay character played by David Alan Grier in the "Men on Film" sketches on the TV show "In Living Color." The character Blaine (Damon Wayans) would frequently tell him, "Toine, don't get mad!"

It's interesting how a French name can sound so trashy. It must be because I live in the US, where Antoine is commonly labeled as a 'ghetto' name. I love French names, but for some reason the lower class population really got a hold of it and ruined it. At least they knew how to spell it, though I've seen mangled spellings such as Antwan or Antwon.

One of the most famous Antoines not mentioned thus far is Antoine de Caunes, a French actor, writer, film director and presenter of the notoriously naughty TV show Eurotrash. He was so OTT on that show I thought he was an Englishman playing a French caricature!
