  • "Such a cute name, one of my old friends is named Paris & I love her name!" Jun. 23, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am a female named Paris and I can honestly say I highly dislike the name Paris for a girl. However, I absolutely love the name Paris for a male, this is due to the brave Paris of Troy! I don?t go by the name Paris anymore, I now go by Al?xandros. This is another name that was given to the great Paris of mythology. Al?xandros also suits my ideal of a female having a male name. For e.g a female having the name Billie. Everyone around me calls me Al?xandros, and I?m more than happy. People may judge me for going by the name Al?xandros, however I grew large hatred for the name Paris for a female due to the association with the city as well as famous females in which have the name Paris. I would not recommend naming your female Paris as kids now days seem to find humour to the name.. not a fun schooling! Paris for a male however is such a perfect name! -Al?xandros :)" Oct. 14, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "Such a strong and handsome name! Our son is Paris and he was named before we ever heard of Paris Hilton. We associated it with the Prince Paris (who kidnapped Helen of Troy). Besides, he is one of those kids who will bring a positive association with the name, as I'm sure other 'Paris's' are doing all around the globe! And if it's good enough for Pierce Brosnan..."

  • "I love the name for a boy as it is a boy's name thanks to the greek mythical story. I don't like it as much for girls as it is more of a place name and due to P. Hilton ruining it. I would use it for a boy if anything. You can always say to the ignoramuses that actually it's a boy's name not girl's. Wink, wink, smirk, that will shut them up! Saying that, whether you are a girl or boy Paris, enjoy your name! :)" Feb. 12, 2014: Report as inappropriate
