Either or, I don’t find it pretty. Seems way too over the top.

I actually think that this name is very pretty. I might've named my child this if it wasn't for people making fun of her!

Obviously not a good name choice. It's not even Cinderella's real name. Her name was Ella, but her stepsisters called her Cinder Ella to mock her because she was so sooty from cleaning out the cinders.

My name is Cinderella too. I am 64 years old. My mom was Cinderella, my Great Aunt, my great, great Aunt, in fact I am number 7! I am also the last. No girls in the next generation.

My name is Cinderella. I am 24 years old and I truly don't know what kind of outlook I should have on my name. Sometimes I feel lost as if I don't own my own identity and at times I will carry my name with lots of pride. I feel lost most times.

I would not suggest naming your child Cinderella, since she would get bullied. Maybe Cinderella for a middle name.
I think it's a very pretty name, however.

My name is actually Cinderella and I've been looking for other Cinderellas out there lol. When I was a child about 6-13 I hated my name. Everyone in school sang the Cinderella song and it got annoying but I'm 17 as of now and I think I have the most beautiful name in the world.

I went to school with a girl named Cinderella, but people (mainly the boys) made fun of her.

I plan on naming my daughter Cinder, after Marissa Meyer's Cinder in the Lunar Chronicles. I may have Ella as her middle name after Cinderella (2015).

I think the name Cinderella is beautiful. It's such a cute & pretty Disney princess name. :)

It's a lovely name after the princess, was it not? And why don't you say that about the name Aurora or Ariel or all the other princesses? The Spanish version Cenicienta is adorable :)

Love it as a middle name. I knew a girl who's name was Princess! I think that's a little to hopeful. Although I said if my second daughter was born February 14 her name would be Cinnamon Heart. So who am I to judge the Princess or Cinderellas? I do like Anastasia a lot more.

Maybe it would be acceptable as a middle name, but I don't recommend using it as a first name. The association with the fairy tale is just too strong.

I have an ancestor whose first name was Cinderella. This Cinderella was born in 1815. According to little stories passed down and told to me by my great-grandmother even she got little comments like "Really?! Your parents named you Cinderella?" or "No, seriously. What's your name?"
She went by her middle name most of the time just to avoid the comments people made.

So if a woman born just about 200 years ago found the name a burden because of it's strong association with the fairy tale, how could a child or woman today not find it burdensome when not only is it associated with a fairy tale, but even more so associated with the lovely, fair complected, blonde, sweet, animated young lady with a sweet singing voice perpetually bedecked in a powder blue ball gown?
Cinderella is not just a name (a name that was chosen by her step-family as another way to humiliate her), but it's a very, very specific animated character. I would worry that any young girl named Cinderella today would always have people she met mentally comparing her to that late-1940's ideal of beauty in cartoon form.

Cinderella Monogatari is an anime series. It is, of course, based on the fairy tale.

In Swedish, Cinderella's name is Askungen, which simply means "ash child", or rather "ash brat". Of course no one uses that!
I don't think she has a "real" name in the Swedish versions. However, her step sisters are sometimes said to have the names Drucilla and Anastasia.

Cinderella-- is an American band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who emerged onto the music scene in the early-1980's.
They were famous for being a glam-metal band, but then mixed and shifted their sound to include marvelous strands of hard-rock/blues-rock.

The current members are Tom Keifer (vocals, guitar), Jeff LaBar (guitar), Eric Brittingham (bass), Fred Coury (drums), and live member Gary Corbett (keyboards.)

Over the years they have been forced to take hiatus'... but I view them as very much alive.

I seem to remember reading in a version of the story that her name was really Ella, but they called her Cinderella because she was always dirty or something...?

It would be so weird to have this name because of the association with the fairy tale.

I like this name, but it's a shame other people don't like the name because of the fairytale (it's a happy story?). This was a name WAY before the movie came out. I think Cindy would be a good nickname.

What an infantile name. I think it's silly to name your kid after the princess in a fairy tale. I wouldn't raise my eye at a relatively unknown one, but for goodness sake, this is a Disney movie. I'm not saying that makes the name worthless. But even in the story it was hardly a term of endearment. If you must have your little reference, name her Cendrillon- that's actually obscure and intriguing, at least more so than this curse of a name.

It's a pretty name, but hopelessly tacky. It sounds like a stripper name. It would be difficult for a woman named Cinderella to be taken seriously. People woud make fun of her from her childhood through adulthood, and just imagine how weird this name would be on an old woman!

I think that Cinderella might be a pretty name, but your child would be endlessly teased and would regret that you chose this name for them. What are you trying to symbolize with this name? That when you die/you're partner dies your child will be horribly off/you will make a horrible choice and be the cause of pain to your daughter before you too kick off? I wouldn't want people to think of that when they saw my kid.

I'd rather use this name for a pet than a child, if you know what I mean.

Also on the jumprope rhyme you could say:
Cinderella, dressed in yella, went downstairs to meet a fella, made a mistake and kissed a snake, how many doctors did it take? Then you start counting the docters 1-2-3 until the person stops or messes up.

A variant of the jumprope rhyme:

Cinderella
Dressed in yella;
Went downtown to meet her fella.
(or "Went downtown to buy some mustard.")
On the way, her girdle busted;
Cinderella was disgusted.

I like the fairy tale and all, but no little girl should have to use that name. In the story, Cinderella is what her step-family used in mockery of her dirty clothes and such.

The original name was Asschunputtle, which means "Little Cinder Girl" in German. When the fairytale was translated to French it became Cinderella.

Cinderella should only be used for middle names! Never name your kid Cinderella. Seriously, they would be made fun of for as long as they live! If you like it that much, use Ella.

I most definitely agree that this name should never be used in real life. I mean, it was a sweet story and everything, but it's like a curse. You'll scar the poor girl for life. Why would you name a girl "ashes"? Why would you name her after a character that was mistreated, abused, unloved, and unwanted by her family? That's horrible. No offence, of course, to anyone that likes this name or has this name, especially. That's just my opinion of this name. Using it, I mean.

Your child would be mocked. People would ask how her prince charming was doing, if she could say hi to the little mice, could she please hit her stepmother and sisters. Not a good name for a real person, let's leave Fairytale names for Fairytales please.

I know the name Cinderella in Germany was replaced by Aschenputtel, and I think it's so much more cute.

Absolutely no one would name their child Aschenputtel in any German-speaking country. Believe me. Another German name for Cinderella is Aschenbrödel.

There was a childhood jump rope rhyme about Cinderella:

'Cinderella
Dressed in yella
Went upstairs
To kiss a fella

Made a mistake
Kissed a snake
How many doctors
Did it take?

(after that, you'd count off how many jumps you could make)

According to the English version of the story, the name was a cruel nickname of the heroine by adding "cinder" to her real name, Ella, because she cleaned the cinders/ashes from the fire.

I know someone who is going to use the name Hannah Cinderella. I think it makes a cute middle name.
