  • "My name is Destiny. And in my own opinion, it's an okay name, although too long. Still pretty. I don't think of anything trashy when I hear it. But I really wish I had a different name, with all the people talking trash about it. I have to live with it after all. I'd still never give in to them and change it though. I haven't had to deal with many people making "It's your destiny!" jokes yet but I know I will eventually. People do constantly mishear my name though and say "Sorry, what? Stephany?" And other similar names. I absolutely hate the fact that people associate the name with strippers so much, that is NOT something I want people to think of when I introduce myself! No way! So if you seriously think that someone is going to be a stripper or trashy just because of a name, you're being ridiculous. I'm proof of that, and plenty of other people named Destiny who may be reading this probably are too, and agree with me." May. 24, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Destiny, I'm not really a huge fan of my name but I learned to live with it. Although my name is Destiny I prefer to spell it with two e's instead of a y, which may or may not make my dad a not-so happy camper. But I don't care what my dad thinks, don't get me wrong I love my dad, but I just want to express myself by spelling my name the way I want to spell it." May. 27, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Destiny...and honestly I hate it. Soon I'm going to get it legally changed. But that is a good if u have this name dont get me wrong. O guess its just me I dont like it for me and some girls it is good for...but not for me. Thanks but no thanks!��" Nov. 30, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Destiny (spelled that way). My parents names me that because they wanted all their chiIdren to start with a D. It goes: David, Dominique, Destiny and Dacia (pronounced like Deja Vu.) I like my name a lot but I was never obsessed over it. A lot of people I meet say that my name is very pretty and beautiful and they like it. People do make jokes like "....but Destiny, it's your destiny" and I use to feel a little upset but now I've gotten use to it and I use that line sometimes too! Haha Some annoying boys in my school say Des-tiny, but that doesn't bother me at all. My nicknames are Des, Dest, from my family(mostly my little sister and dad) I'm called Dessie. And my weird friends call me Destin all the time without the "y" sound. And I use to be like, "seriously, why?" Haha but not anymore. I respond to it and got use to it. I've never heard my name being used as a strpiers name but whatever because it doesn't phase me. Really, any name can be a stripped name. Ps- my middle name is Cruz (moms madden name)" Jul. 20, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "my name is Destiny and I couldn't ask for a better name. everyone i've met has said that my name is beautiful an I think the same. for those of you who think Destiny is a stripper name and instantly think that whoever is named Destiny has little education, is spoiled, and will eventually turn out to be a stripper, you're wrong. for me, I am completely opposite of all that; I am in honors for all of my classes in highs school and the last thing I would want to be is a stripper. even though I am the only Destiny in a school of over 500 students, I have known a few Destiny's and each of them were the nicest and the smartest girls in the room. so please, if anyone is thinking of naming their child Destiny don't be fooled by all the immature people that say it's a stripper name. Destiny is a very beautiful and unique name." Dec. 21, 2010: Report as inappropriate
