  • "My name is Vincent Francis and I like it very much. I do not like Vince or Vinnie and if someone calls me that i correct by saying my friends call me Vincent. This only seems to happens is the US. People in other parts of the world I lived in would listen to how I introduced myself and not shorten my name. I am of northern European heritage. The only Vincents I have know were either French or Italian." Apr. 29, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "I was born in '68 and am Vincent Thomas with an Italian last name. I think my parents did a lot of things wrong but they got my name right. I went by Vinnie as a kid and now am a Vince. I am seldom referred to as Vincent. I like that it is different but still cool, and yes, I agree, can be a strong, dignified name." Aug. 16, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "I'm A Vincent. love my name, but hate being called "Vince". Vinny is okay. better spell it it with a "y" though!" May. 14, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "my name is vincent mucio torres and i love my name because no one ever gets me confused with some one else,but after some mix up when my mom signed me up for school they put my name as vicente so i dont really mind but my name is vincent,it says so on my birth certificate..."

  • "Our first son (born 2003) was named Vincent Ray after Vince Ray the artist, Van Gogh, Price, the motorcycle, but MAINLY after the Richard Thompson song about the bike, 1952 vincent Black Lightning. We love the name and so does he - he is the only one in his school, and for all I know the only one in the whole of Winchester (yes,we live near "Vinchester" Cathedral!). It's not a popular name in the UK. When we knew we were having a second son I felt we'd already picked the best possible name, but eventually named him Louis ("Loo-ee") John. It really suits him and I think goes well alongside Vincent, although it's a bit more popular." Oct. 26, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love this name. I named my son Vincent John (John after his great grandfather, grandfather and father). They tried to make me name him John, IV but I compromised and made John the middle name. I've always liked this name too. One of my first crushes was named Vince. Then I thought about all the famous Vincent's: Vince Vaughn (whom I've actually met in person and was very nice and funny), Vince Lombardi, Vincent Price, Vincent Van Gogh, Vince Young - fictional Vinnie Bobarino. It's not overly popular yet still heard of - a great name overall. #2 is on the way for me and I agree with an earlier comment - about another boy name, the bar has been set too high. Maybe we'll have a girl." Sep. 1, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my son Vincent after the motorcycles! ((and Vincent Price)) we call him Vin, Vinnie, Vince and Vincent. When I feel silly I call him Vincenzo, Vincheater or Vinchester Cathedral :P. He's only 7 months old so he doesn't really care what we say. The only problem is what will we call our second son? We've already set the bar with Vincent! We had to be careful choosing a middle name though. His last name starts with a G, so we couldn't use any vowels or he'd be VEG, or worse VAG. We chose Desmond ((my maiden name)). If you don't like the way people shorten the name maybe you should choose a different name!" Jan. 6, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my son Vincent. He is called both Vince and Vincent, and seems to prefer Vince. He doesn't like Vinnie and always corrects people if they used Vinnie (yay!). It's a great name - not overly odd, but still unique and strong. My dad was Vincenzo, and the family calls my son Vincenzo sometimes, but his name is Vincent." Sep. 15, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My fiance and I are naming our son "Vincent Alexander" in late May. We both love it, and many people compliment us on our choice. However, we are both becoming quite irritated with people shortening his name to "Vince". There is nothing wrong with the name Vince, but that is not HIS name."
