Okay so this is my name so if you want an ACTUAL impression of the name from someone who lives with it, look here.

I adore my name and will never change it. As someone who’s from England and has lived in the UK my whole life, it doesn’t have the same connotations as it may have in America, but I think it’s time to leave its old meaning behind and see it as a sweet innocent name.

As a child I did endure the classic “dick” jokes of course and when I was young (9-10) it really bothered me but I grew to get over it and realise that I’d rather my unique name than a boring name. It catches people’s attention, not once has anyone ever forgotten my name.

I don’t think it sounds childish either. If anything I think it sounds sweet, gentle and loving. Maybe it isn’t the most mature name but I think it’s definitely an amazing one.

I think with this name it is important to have an equally fitting middle and last name though. My middle name is May and I think it goes nicely with the sweet, gentle theme.

Hope you find this helpful! X.

It's certainly divisive. I wouldn't use it, but I don't think it's right to presume that someone is a bad person because they have the name Dixie. Their parents may be ignorant, sure, but perhaps they overcame that.

This name will lead to many jokes in school. Besides, it's not very attractive. When I hear Dixie, I think of the book Because of Winn Dixie, so it sounds like a dog's name to me.

Name your kid this if you want everyone to know that you're racist.

Dixie is my name and it's a very pretty name. I love it. People need to get over the negative stereotype associated with it.

I wouldn't name a child this, but I love it! It's classy, unique, and it sounds magical!

The most UGLIEST name for a girl in the whole wide world. I know a girl named Dixie and she is very pretty but the name does not suit her and is so ugly on her. Not a good name at all.

My name is Dixie. I am 59 years old. I have been through hell because of my name. I am an old hippie. No shit, we do exist. One would think I would be racist. Far from it. I argued with my dad when I was young (the 70s were fun) about how wrong it was to hate someone because of their skin color. It came from my soul. I was born knowing it was wrong. Funny my name is Dixie. Because I am a true believer that we are all the same, we love the same, want the same things, and most of all, want peace. My name may promote negativity, but I do not. Peace to all.

A TERRIBLE name for obvious reasons.

My name is Dixie. I used to HATE it but... I have come to LOVE it as, yes, my birth name. I am still asked, 'Is Dixie your real name or is it a nickname', and 'How is Dixie spelled'. I have seen it spelled Dixe, Dixi and Dixy... but I correct folks and politely tell them 'Yes it is my real name and it is spelled Dixie'.

I just happened to be born in Fort Bragg, NC as my father is a member of the Special Forces. And I think you can see where I am going. Yes, he named me after the part of the US where I was born.

Lest we forget the most beautiful, classy, and talented Dixie Carter.

- Forever, Dixie.

Definitely fitting on some white redneck from Alabama.

This is my name. I hate it. Been bullied for having it since the day I was born. I am NOT a redneck. I am NOT white trash. It's not my fault I have this name. I hate it with my whole heart. Don't say a name is stupid if you are just trying to specifically talk about one person you don't like with that name.

I don't understand why anyone would name their kid this let alone still be in the top 1000.

Dixie brings to mind a trashy or hillbilly-ish type of person who resides in the deep, deep south. This name has the sound of "Dick" in it-or at least extremely, extremely close. Why on earth would you give your daughter a name that can be associated with the male genitalia? It's about the equivalent of naming your son 'Dick' or 'Dickson' which are excruciatingly awful.

Dixie is a name best buried and forgotten. Also, it just sounds really flimsy (more of a stage name) it's a name I'll never be able to take seriously.

Dixie Carter, American actress, 1939-2010. She played Julia Sugarbaker on the sitcom Designing Women. I think this name is a sweet alternative to names like Daisy or Macy. Best if you have a little southern heritage.

Dixie Cooney Martin was a long time character on All My Children. That's the first time I'd ever heard it as a name.

I do have a friend who named her daughter this. I find it a ridiculous name in real life.

I LOVE this name. Pfft, the name Dixie is certainly not trashy. It's cute and it's sure as hell awesome. :D.

I think the name is cute, human or animal. I have a southern friend who is not what I would consider a redneck. I think that people should be more less judgemental. Anyway, I find the name to be very sweetypielike... A canadian friend opinion, thanks.

I HATE this name. It's so tacky and trashy. And it sounds like a name used by ignorant rednecks.

Hmm... I certainly believe this is a good name for an animal, especially a dog. But as for a person? Well, to me, most names that end in a long "e" sound seem like nicknames, and Dixie is no exception. Maybe if you used it as a short form of something (although what that something would be, I have no idea). Or, possibly, one could use it as the kind of nickname that is unconnected to the person's real name. I don't know. It certainly sounds cute, anyway, and now I think I want to put it into one of my stories.

This is my name. For awhile, I didn't like it, but I think it makes me unusual. My father named me after the Dixie Gun Works catalog, strange, but true. So far, at 33, I've met 1 other person named Dixie.

I thought the name 'Dixie' derives from the Owen-Dixon line which divided the non-slavery northern states from the slave owning southern ones?

I think it's a nice way to represent your American southern heritage. Sure, I wouldn't personally use it, but I see nothing wrong with being proud of where you come from and using a classic Southern name.

I know someone called Dixie and it suits her now but in 10 years time? I think it will sound silly.

I think that Dixie is a wonderful name. It's not a common name as it was in the 30's, but that's what gives it that originality. My name wasn't that popular when my mother named me, either, but it has really bounced back.

It's not white trash! My good friend's name is Dixie and she's one of the classiest people I know! Very cute! You'll never get lost in a crowd with this name.

I think this would be a good name for a dog. I'm not as crazy about it as a human name, though. As a nickname, maybe, but not an actual given name.
