  • "Still sounds like an old lady's name on the British side of the Atlantic. While in America 'Poison Ivy' is associated with the song and with one of Batman's arch-enemies with the deadly kisses and plants (she is also known as Dr Pamela Lillian Isley), Britons associate 'Poison Ivy' with Ivy Tilsley in the 1970s and 80s episodes of Coronation Street."

  • "I am named Ivy after my English grandmother. In my 40 years, I have only met 2 people with the same name. This is not good if you want to keep a low profile! Pleased to see the positive comments on this site from others called Ivy. I've always had mixed feelings about my name: Growing up in Mexico, always had to spell it out and it was always mis-pronounced. Now in UK and I feel that people will think I am 'old' because of my name. Based on most of your comments, I think I should be more positive about my name." May. 17, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Ivy too. I'm from the Netherlands, and nobody gets how to pronounce or spell it... When I was younger I was annoyed by that, now I just telle them: no, you have to pronounce it like an english name... But I'm really like my name and I'm very proud of it! So all thanks to my parents!! : )" Mar. 12, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Okay, it may sound like an old lady's name in Britain at the moment, but it is making a comeback in America. Apart from the song 'Poison Ivy', Americans associate 'Poison Ivy' with the assumed name of Dr. Pamela Lillian Isley, one of Batman and Robin's arch-enemies, while in Britain 'Poison Ivy' is the nickname of Ivy Tilsley in the northern British soap 'Coronation Street'."
