"I'm a Paisley. Born in England in 1996. My name is often spelt incorrectly and I'm told it is unusual. However, I do like that I've only ever heard of two people called Paisley in the almost 23 years I've been alive. I do think it's a very girly name and personally do love it." Mar. 18, 2019:

"This is my name since 1991. I've never met another person with it, so it makes me feel unique. The only downside is that kids used to call me "Parsley" when they tried to pick on me. Those who love it often ask if it's a flower (thinking of "Pansy"), and many ask how my parents gave me this name." Sep. 23, 2013:

"I love how unique my name is. I love the swirling pattern I was named for. The only thing I hate is when someone asks if I was named after the country musician, even though I was born before his career even started and WELL before he became popular. But that happens rarely :)" Nov. 14, 2010:

"This is my name; Personally it feels a little too exotic and yet too indistinguishable simultaneously. While I'm the only person I know named Paisley, I've been called at least 22 names wrong, from "Lily" to "Casey" to "Daisy". Sometimes I worry it's a bit infantile, too." Jul. 21, 2018:
"Named my daughter Paisley after Princes' song "Paisley Park"." Mar. 10, 2018:
