"I don't like having this name, my parents named me this because it's the correct old spelling of the word, but nowadays it just looks like a tacky misspelling. I feel like people judge me for having this name. I wish my parents had named me something else." Mar. 22, 2017:

"I wouldn't recommend naming your child Destinee, but it's an ok name. My hippie parents named me Destinee and I've had mixed reactions from people over the years. I hope that given the greater number of girls being named "Destinee" these days that these girls won't have as many bad or uncomfortable experiences with their name as I have.
It is often mispronounced, misspelled, and I have been mistakenly called "Stephanie", "Denise", "Desiree", "Justine", "Dusty". I had teachers in school that just called me by my last name because they didn't want to deal with my weird name. People are not shy about giving their opinion about the name "Destinee". While most of the time it is positive, I have had a lot of people tell me that I have a trashy name. Many people also assume that I am an African-American girl based on the name, which is awkward for the person making that assumption. I have also been forced to endure countless bad jokes and pick-up lines.
I've grown to tolerate my name, but it is a name that people will either really like or really hate and will not hesitate to comment on no matter how rude it is to do that. Ultimately I would avoid naming a child Destinee." Aug. 19, 2008:
"My 12 year old daughter name is Destinee. I spelled it that way because I thought it would be very different from everybody else. I felt she was destine to be her because she almost didn't make it through birth." Jul. 4, 2008:
""I named my daughter Destanie, she is one of four daughters and they all have ie at the end...so that is how i chose to spell it. So far we haven't had too many problems, but she is only 2 years old....lol" Nov. 5, 2007:
