What are your first names? Do you think you have a cool/beautiful name? Do any of you have femcel names that hurt your confidence like Agnes, Larkin, Prudence, Helga, Gertrude, Mildred, Bertha, etc.

My first name is Maisie, pronounced like 'Macy' instead of 'Mazie' though. I like it for the most part except I like the spelling "Macy" better. I think I was named after my dad's first crush in elementary school, thought that was kinda cute. Some people think it's weird though lol.

I like the name Lara, sounds sophisticated to me.

Anonymous 14969

i was named 'rachel' which i think is sort of suitable because i was born in the year of the sheep and my name means 'lamb of god'.
but i very much doubt that's what my four-year-old sister was thinking of when my parents let her decide my name. she just thought it sounded pretty, i guess.

I'm Sabrina, literally after the movie. My mom is pretty ambitious and power-driven and always imagined me to sweep through society, but then again, the prophecy was fulfilled both in that she was treating me like a personal research object (with the difference that she is nowhere near professional and I turned out just as awkward as she) AND in me growing up like absolute redneck bydlo.

I still wish I would magically acquire elegance and poise. I suffer so hard from not having any of that. I'm literally blunt and clumsy like a farmer.

My parents were choosing from Lana or Lara but my brother said "it should be Lara like Lara Croft!" he was 5 years old back then and when I think about it it's pretty impressive he could even play tomb raider that young. They also wanted to name me Leda but I'm really glad they didn't
If I were to really analyze it Lara is a pretty good name for me because l and r are like "soft" and "hard" versions of the same sound, and I am always caught in the duality of liking cute girly things and tough scary things.

My current name is rare but doesn't fit me at all since it's delicate and cute. Oddly enough it's the main thing people compliment me for lmao.
Not posting it because it's weird and I feel like someone could identify me

Mine is Luisa, the original Italian spelling. Usually when people try to spell it for the first time, like teachers, they add it with the O and I have to correct it lol. My second name is usually pronounced wrong as well - I have a very Italian sounding name. I don't mind it because it's kind of a unique combination but I also think Luisa is too cutesy sounding. I wish I had a more cool sounding first name.

I don't think it's too cute, when I hear Luisa I think of a fiery flamenco dancer lol

Luisa is ruined for me, we have a little girl in our circle of friends, and the parents somehow didn't get the notice that you should discipline your kid, and she is the biggest pain in the ass ever, and the mother is always nervous and twitchy but doesn't dare to scold Luisa in the slightest and always half-heartedly hisses "Luisssssa!"

However, there are many Duchesses named L(o)uisa, which is nice.

I have a unique name, it's feminine but most people can't pronounce it properly. It's unique enough that you can pin-point me so I don't feel comfortable posting it.

Most people I come across think it's a cool name, personally I just find it annoying. It'd be nice to have a normal name, but maybe it's the whole "grass is greener on the other side" mentality.

I like my first name since it is a proper name, not one of those cool pet names given nowadays. I mean, when I was a kid, cats were named Luna or Lilou, my neighbour's dog's name was Lena, now my pupils have those same names, wtf.
A lot of girls of my age had the same name when I was in school but it seems to be much rarer now. Sometimes people compliment me about it. I'm glad it is feminine and doesn't end with an "a".

Pic related is what a Lena should look like.

omg this so much. my sister was going to name her baby Luna if he happened to be a girl. I already had a cat named Luna and ffs the father of the child had a cat named Luna, too. At least don't already have a pet with such a name if you want to name your child that, though even if you knew no pets with the name Luna, that's still a clear pet name…it's like naming your son Fido.

I was always really disappointed as a kid that my name didn't have its own meaning, it's just a feminine version of a male name. My mom added two silent letters at the end which makes it look more beautiful but it's difficult to spell for foreigners.

My name means "eternal ruler/ever powerful", but it's the female version of a male name. It's also the name of a genus of flowers (heaths). It was given to me because my family moved around a lot and it's easy to pronounce in almost all languages.

Anonymous 15614

My parents named me Elizabeth, which I think is pretty damn good. It's a classic, sound pretty, and I can have a ton of different nicknames. The only downside is it's got a Hebrew origin and I'm not fond of the religious association. When I have children I'm going to give them as secular names as possible, like botanical names.

Jealous. My parents were going to name me that, then didn't because of my dad's (shit) taste, and the name they ended up picking for me gets me so much shit because I'm white and named it, even though I've met other white people named the same name.

that sounds like it could be easily interpreted personally in different ways, despite its origin.

I think it's similar to how us westerners are "culturally Christian"(also culturally pre-Christian, like Christmas). Me and one of my sisters have Hebrew names and I was ignorant of their origin until the last 5 years or so, you just kind of expect them to have Anglo origins.

I have Latin names picked out for a daughter or son already but only because I like them. (April and Marcus)

Anonymous 15681

>>15614
Ah same! I'm glad my parents gave me that name especially since my father was more into it than my mother since she liked the name "Betalise" a little more (idk how it's spelled but it's what it would sound like). He didn't like it and after finding out from my mother about it (I hated it) and I would say I like Elizabeth more.

The nicknames are super cute too! I've always liked Lily, Elly, Elle, and Elise as nicknames and dream of someone calling me that one day… Too bad people just resort to Liz for nicknames as I've grown tired of it and hated Lizzie RIP…

I met a girl named Agnes and honestly she changed my whole view on the name. I used to view it as a grandma-y femcel name, but this Agnes I know is really outgoing, pretty, and fun to be around.

When I tell people about her and reference her name people always respond with "ew" but I have to reassure them that she's actually the opposite of their first impression.

I've been told my entire life that I have a beautiful/lovely name (that's if I bother correcting them when they hear it wrong like they always do). It's not hard to pronounce, it's not foreign/exotic, but it's rare and I do like it a lot. I'd mention it, but it's too specific and I'd rather not. I'd love to be called Frankie, or Evie though, I was originally going to be named Evie which is nice. My name sounds pretty classy which makes me happy, as I'm very into vintage fashion etc.
