I have known a girl with this name, but I like it better on boys. The famous namesake was a man, after all.
Monet Tumusiime is a fictional character in the 2016 sixth season of 'American Horror Story'. She is played by actress Angela Bassett.
I like this name because it is so delicate sounding and as a way to honor my favorite artist Claude Monet. The older I get the more pretentious this name sounds unfortunately.
Charming name. I can see it on both boys and girls.
The name Monet was given to 40 girls born in the US in 2015.
I kind of like it. I've heard of the name Monet, but I never really thought about it until I saw it here.
The name sounds beautiful and I love Monet's paintings... but this does not seem right as a first name.
Yes, I can see some eccentric family having children called Monet, Picasso, and Van Gogh. This is not meant to be a first name, but nonetheless it is a name, and I personally like the way it sounds as a surname(=
This is a beautiful name that honors an excellent artist. Its softness seems better suited for a girl, though. Monet would make a nice middle name - much better than a typical "filler" like Marie or Anne.
Monet "M" St. Croix, a Marvel comics superhero, a member of Generation X and, later, X-Factor Investigations.
There is an American actress that bears this name, Monet Mazur. Her full birth name is Monet Happy Mazur. Her father, Ruby Mazur, designed the Rolling Stone's famous "mouth" logo.
I love the work of the artist Monet and I think his last name makes for a pretty girl's name. Perhaps it is because it sounds like a blend of Monique and Renee, as a previous poster suggested. I think I'd only use Monet as a middle name, however.
Not said like it is spelt "mon-ET" urgh! It is said Mon-ay.
Yes, it is pronounced mo-NAY. Don't "urgh" it, it's a part of it being French.
What a pretty name!
Actually I have never run across an example of a male Monet. All of the babies I have seen given this name in the United States have been girls. The name has been taken up as a girls' name by some parents because it sounds like a blend of the names Monique and Renee.
