How do you feel about hyper-feminine names? Are they too "strippery"?

    Neither, what if the child grows up to be a tomboy? It's too limiting. : (7 votes)

    All of your examples sound fine to me. If you went along the lines of Candy, Cinnamon, Precious, etc then I would think of strippers. Yours are nice, normal, girl names 🙂

    I know a dog named Lulu so that one is a little weird for me haha! I love Rose and it will be our first girls middle name. Daphne is pretty. Stripper names are like Candy, Champagne, Cherry, Diamond, Sunshine.

    Hyper-feminine is not at all equal to a stripper name! I would worry more about the meaning than how feminine you think it sounds. And it doesn’t matter if the child doesn’t end up being feminine, then she (or he in the tiny chance your child ends up being transgender) will rock it anyways or figure out something else to go by. If you’re worried about it, choose a more gender neutral middle name. 

    I think Daphne is lovely and has a lovely meaning, it means laurel tree. That’s much classier than Glitter.

    I was expecting to see names like Candi, Barbie and Brandy. The only names on your list that seem even slightly strippery are Lulu (no grown woman should be named Lulu) and Daisy. Most of your other names are timeless.

    Glasgowbound:  hahaha the woman at the adorable little town and country wedding dress boutique that helped me was name Cinnamon.  It was so strange.  The first thing I thought of was “stripper” but she was this adorable middle-aged woman that was just sweet as pie and probably had 3 kids with a house with a white picket fence and a golden retriever.

    OP – the name ROSE does not strike me as a stripper name at all!

    I think Daphne is lovely.

    It’s very easy for people to be judgey over names, but it’s important to keep in mind all the culture, values, etc. that are behind them. Just keep in mind that statistically, classist structures are such that people are judged by their names. It’s sad, but a reality. I work with a woman who had her son at 17. She, being young, gave him a very “black urban” (her words, not mine) name and regrets it. She confessed that she wishes she chose a more conventional name for him.

    I love feminine names personally. Why not celebrate how absolutely wonderful it is to be a woman by gifting her a beautiful girly name!

    There’s a different between “feminine” and “stripper-y”. Personally, I’m a fan of classic, feminine names, like Lucy, Alice, Elizabeth, Audrey, etc. Daphne is also beautiful. Lulu and Ruby are the only names you mentioned that I’m not a huge fan of, but neither of them scream “stripper” to me lol 🙂

    Ruby is our number one name for a girl if we have one. It sounds classic. It fits a baby, young girl, teenage girl and an old lady. It’s perfect.

    So no, your choices are not ‘strippery’.
