I'm so glad we found this website (we were googling how popular both of my daughter's names are - Emily and Cameron) because now she is realizing that her name is unique and special. She thinks her name isn't very girly and it definitely isn't a common name for a girl but after explaining to her that she has a very special name and after reading all of these posts I think it swayed her decision to not change her name to Chloe lol Thankyou for all of your posts!!"

  • "CAMRYN is my name, but it is pronoanced(sorry about my spelling)the same way as Cameron. I hate Cameron for a girl, but love it fora boy. If a girl should be named with the girl spelling, because cameron is too manish. By the way, people always spell my name "cameron" or"kameron". It is extremly annoying and ignorant.(btw im a girl)" Dec. 10, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "It is one of those things tht seems ok to people in the US,but in the UK seems ridiculous like those people who call their infants after motorcycles somewhere in the world, ie Yamaha, etc., etc. Cameron is a surname; it is absolutely not feminine or nice as a girl's name! In Scottish Gallic it means 'bent nose' after the warlike Scottish chieftain who first held this name. I feel so sorry for all the Cammies I really do! My second name is Cameron. I am female. It is a great surname but really horrible as a girl's first name. Sadly every other child, male or female is being called Cameron now." Aug. 25, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Cameron is a girls name and it is one of the ugliest names i have EVER heard. I know a MAN (woman) that is named cameron and is quiet and has a weird voice and is stupid." Apr. 3, 2006: Report as inappropriate
