  • "Another Roxanne here. My family call me Roxy. When I was a small child I had my picture taken for a local newspaper. My name was uncommon in my town so the reporter misspelt my name in big letters on front page ?Rocksand? Yikes! I don?t like the Police song ?Roxanne?. People would always sing the chorus upon meeting me. I like my name now as it seems to be timeless but is still uncommon." Feb. 28, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "The comments are funny. I am named Roxanne, and just the sheer number of us who get the Police song sang to them is hillarious. I used to hate it, but at 33 I love it now. My name is unique, and sure I never find my name on things that is not the end of the world." Apr. 8, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is also Roxanne and I don't like it shortened I was born in 1958 and I like my name for a lot of reasons I think it's feminine and not many people have the name I was the only one in every class that had the name Roxanne the name Rose easily off of your tongue and because I'm French Canadian it suits me perfectly and I didn't want to name that everybody else had when I had my daughter's I wanted to name them hellena and Olivia for the same reason I liked my name I got my Olivia just not my Helena" May. 23, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "My Daughter's name is Roxanne. She was born in 2008. We her dad and I love the name, however, Roxi does not because she can never find anything with her name on it (keychains etc) I think tho she will start to like it more when she grows up. My two pet peeves is when people sing the Police song to us, (Song about a prostitute) Like it;s the funniest most original thing anyone has ever done. 2) her teacher is Compelled to spell her name Roxie there is not i.e?Only Roxi."

  • "I'm Mexican, so my name is definitely uncommon among my family, friends, and where I live (southern Arizona). Sometimes when people sing the song to me it's annoying, but for the most part I enjoy it. I like my name and LOVE the meaning and it's origin =)" Jul. 25, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "I do like my name except for the song is about prostitution, the film, wasn't that about prostitution too? Then moulin rouge has the song in it, and yes that's ultimately about love, but it's still about prostitution... But I do like the fact my name is different, I have met two other Roxannes in my area, and there are more around here that I know of but haven't met. I just like the fact that it sounds pretty..

  • "My 5 year old daughter is called Roxann. She is bright, lively and shines as her name does!We also chose the name because we are an English-Spanish bilingual family, and Roxann can be written and pronounced the same here in Spain and abroad. We only realized about Police song after our friends started singing it but, hey, it was a great band! And it is a great name, fit for a Persian Princess, wife of Alexander the Great."

That is until 75 soldiers, at the same time, sang it to me when I was at work. Now, how many girls can say that ever happend to them. AWESOME. For my family and VERY close friends I am Roxy, for coworkers and strangers I prefer Roxanne. It makes me feel stronger. Emails to family members are signed Rox. Ya'll take care now..."

  • "I love my name. At least the song everyone sings is a good one. I'd hate to be named Leila or something like that. I don't go by Roxie or Rox. I like my name because it is not a common name but I almost never have to pronounce it again for people. I think Roxanne is a strong name and I feel strong. My dad told me it means "first light of the rising sun" in Persian. I like that. Better than dawn. :)" Jun. 2, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "I like having this name. I was born in 1954 and it was actually a common name at that time. A lot of baby girls (myself included) were named after a pretty model on the game show "Beat the Clock". Makes me wonder how many 10 year old Vannas are out there." Feb. 11, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "This is our 4-almost-5 year old Daughter's name. We fell in love with 'Roxanne' for a few reasons: One is that it is uncommon and i've only met about three Roxanne's in my life. Not many Roxanne's in Georgia. Two, is that it has some unique letters. R names that are strickly feminine are in short supply, and having an X in there just gives it an exotic edge. Three, it gives the adorably cute & fiesty nickname 'Roxy'. We have gotten tons of compliments for having a Roxy and most people use the same word to describe it: 'jazzy'. It's got pizazz and brings to mind a spunky flapper girl from the 1920s (mostly thanks to Roxie Hart from the 'Chicago' musical) and for the newer generation, a free-spirited tropical surfer girl lifestyle (with the Quiksilver Roxy brand of surfwear for girls). And lastly, the most important reason we loved the name is because the meaning is beautiful. It is Persian (another exotic twist!) and means 'Dawn' or 'Sunrise'. In the Bible, God says that though sorrows may last for the night, HIS JOY comes in the morning. We may go through disappointments or hard times, but God promises that His Joy & Light will shine on us once again. And what a beautiful promise that is!" Jan. 25, 2009: Report as inappropriate

Be proud ALL you Roxanne's out there in the world! We are few and far between. Make yourself special in the world, or in just one's person's life, and you will be so rewarded! Peace!
