  • "I named my daughter Camille Nicole. I think it is a beautiful and unique name. I'm glad it's not trendy and she won't have the same name as 6 other girls in her class. I love the retro sound of her name. And if it's too "fancy" sounding for her, she can go by Cami. No regrets on her name. (Born in 2016)" Jul. 19, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am also a Camille. My mother heard the name Camilla but didnt love it. But Fortunately, She dropped the ?a? and used Camille. I never like my name as people never got it right - they called me Christine. Carmel, Carmela, Carmelina - it was endless. It wasn?t til my 50?s that I slowly learned to appreciate it. I am a very strong individual and also enjoy the uniqueness of my name. I have met a few ?Camilles? over the years and appreciate my name more and more as I mature. I?m now 71. Thank you mom."

  • "My name's Camille, people always make fun of my name calling me Muslim or black which is awful in every single way it's not wrong to be Muslim or black or call me that and make racist jokes when I am indeed Irish. Adults always say it's a beautiful name and I should be proud but it's not worth the constant insults mispronouncing from teachers and strangers, also no one can ever remember my name it hurts. It's such an awkward name and a cruel name to give a child unless you live in the 1500s in France and it's a boy. Camille I absolutely hate it's just another thing that makes me stick out and be different it's discouraging and embarrassing. It's awkward too if you are thinking of naming your child this think of them first there's nicknames like big fat ugly camel, saying Kkkamillle while spitting and a lot more I shouldn't say on the internet sure some friends love it and make cute nicknames but you feel the negative things more than the good things."

I am 20 years old and starting to come into the name and see that it is a really pretty and unique name. Though let me tell you, I have had A LOT nicknames, and none of them were Cami, Cam, or Millie. I got Camilley, Chameleon, Chamomile, Meal Meal, Mealy, and the two most common: Camel and Camel toe. My friends referred to me by those two names so much my mom starting calling me Camel and Camel Toe, and sadly I'll respond to it. I am also Camille Caitlin." Nov. 28, 2012: Report as inappropriate
