Very pretentious and dumb as a name. You might as well name your kid "Teen". Also, it's way too obvious that it is a word in French. Use an actual French name instead.
Really weird.
This is my name. I realize it's French, but many common words are names, as are locations and even ideas. What sounds good in one language may not sound right in another, but it certainly isn't demeaning.
What a dumb name. This would sound ridiculous in France because of the meaning. In English, it would just sound stuffy, ugly, and fake.
To those who are thinking of naming your child this - don't. Sure, it sounds refined and all (as do most words in Romance languages), but as one of the users said above, it's almost like naming your child 'teeny-bopper'. So don't. Please. For everyone's sanity.
I doubt French people use this name. It would sound very strange on old women. On English speakers, it would just sound pretentious.
I think this "name" should be moved to the User Submitted lists. Or deleted altogether. It's just a French word and almost slang (like "teeny-bopper") and doesn't deserve this sort of status among established names.
This is no name in France.
Previous poster, je suis d'accord! My take on this word is that it is used by the French to mean "teenager".
