"Me and my wife are having a baby girl in october, we are naming her Paris. I love the name and just because there is a celebrity whom people have come to hate because of the media doesnt mean i cant name my daughter that. Its beautiful, classy, and its perfect.

"It is a NAME.
Why are you people arguing over a name?
"its a boys name,"
" no its a girls name!!"
GEEEZ, can't you guys agree that the name PARIS is a unisex name?
People are deciding not to name their child PARIS because of one person, paris hilton.
Paris is a pretty name, and if somebody is going to judge somebody else because of a name, that relates to Paris Hilton, that is pathetic, and their own problem.
Paris Hilton shouldn't even be a factor in deciding a baby's name. She is just a girl that the media has nothing better to do than bag her.
My name is PARIS.
And my friends don't relate Paris Hilton to me.
In 10 years nobody will hear from Paris HILTON again, so whats the problem?" Jan. 17, 2009:
"My name is Paris and I am a woman. many people that I meet love my name. It's sexy! It makes u think of love! When I here people call my name I just feel great and it makes me smile. So to who ever feels like Paris is a boys name ask another male what they think about it. U are one of the very few males who don't think it's nice on a female.!!! Thanks" Dec. 5, 2008:
"Well my name is paris im a boy and the gurls lyke it so im i luv it. plus the name is so unique. i got a uncle named Paris Fracis( wat a coincidence). im named after him." Sep. 4, 2008:
"I named our daughter Lauren Paris...after the city where my husband and I got engaged. I never really related it to Ms. Hilton, just the love of the city. And my daughter, she loves her name." Jul. 9, 2008:
"I actually don't understand why people are so put off by a single person. The name has a lovely ring to it, the city is the epitome of urban interest, and the Trojan prince was... cool. Kind of. And lots of once-unisex names are used for both boys and girls now. So yeah. I love the name. If I had an Angora rabbit, I'd name it Paris." Mar. 12, 2008:
"The fact that this name is so popular in girls, is just a reflection of the ignorance of their parents, since it is a Male name." Jan. 5, 2008:
"yes my name is paris

"my godaughters name is Paris she is now 18 years old and a bit of a tomboy this name really feminizes and softens her. People automatically assumes she is "girlie"" Sep. 13, 2007:
"I love my name! I've always been proud of it because of its ties to Greek mythology. Then along came Hilton and people are constantly calling me her and it's feels very insulting.

"I was born in the 70s, and I must have been one of the first Paris' ever. I've never met anyone else with the name, with the dubious exception of a girl who used it as her "stripper name". Ugh!! With that exception, I always loved my name and was proud of my name up until Paris Hilton came along. Now, when I tell people my name, they always making comments. It's embarrassing to share my unique name with a world famous moron. So it's not as cool now, but it's still a beautiful name. Too bad it's now just another name for tastelessness." Sep. 15, 2005:

"I am having a baby girl in 10 weeks time and have decided to call her Paris Rose Catherine. This is totally unrealted to Paris Hilton, but totally related to Mr Michael Jackson's choice of name for his daughter, and me being a massive fan love the name for that fact. Paris is unusual, elgant, pretty and classy, the Rose and Catherine makes her name sound more English." Jul. 2, 2012:

"ięm going to name my daughter paris in honor of mihael jacksonęs daughter paris jackson, that girl broke and stole my heart when she spoke about her father at the service memorial, i think she is a very sweet and brave little girl. And also i think is a pretty and uncommon name." Apr. 20, 2010:
"I do think Paris is a nice name. As far as the Paris Hilton convos go, she'll be less talked about in a few years. If I ever have a baby girl, that will probably be her name too. I also like the fact that it's not too common. Paris would sound funny for a boys name..in my opinion." Mar. 19, 2010:
"Despite what you all say about not letting negative associations bother you, Paris Hilton still ruined this beautiful name for me. One cannot help some associations, after all would you be able to enjoy the name Lucifer on a child? It does, after all have a beautiful meaning, "angel of light", but come on, would you be able to get pass the fact that it's a name of the devil????" Apr. 7, 2009:
"Helen is also a unisex name. I'm a man called Helen." Nov. 26, 2008:
"I love the name Paris, I really hope in a few years Paris Hilton is no longer in the scene so I can name my daughter Paris. It's a classy name-- but becomes tainted when associated with Hilton." Oct. 6, 2008:
"When I am older and married if I have a girl I am gonna name her Paris. It is a beautiful name and It makes you think of great places" Jun. 9, 2008:
"(In response to comment that the fact that so many girls are so named it is ignorance on the part of parents i'll like to say that) 'It is just another name. There is no longer any formal demarcation concerning gender based names. Girls and boys are called Danielle, Jade, Lorrain, Stacy, Noel etc. Why is it such an issue where Paris is concerned. Parents should be able to choose even that much for their child'." Jan. 20, 2008:

"I used to love the name Paris and always planned to name my future daughter Paris - that is, until Paris Hilton surfaced. She gives this name a negative image. I'm so disappointed that Paris Hilton ever became popular and tarnished this name because it is a beautiful name otherwise." Jun. 21, 2006:
