I have becoming more in love with this as I think of it. It doesn’t really fit in with the other names on my list, but I have always loved colour names. I’m liking it on a girl, though I can see it on a little boy as well. I love that it has the unisex nickname potential [name]Andy[/name], too, or maybe even a clunky [name]Burg[/name]/Burgs? Is it too pretentious as far as colour names go? Any thoughts?
I love the colour, but the name actually feels really masculine to me, my instant thought was beef burgundy pie and then the nickname burger, which could especially bad if she was a chubby girl, booger could also be thrown in there, I see the name riddled with problems.
If you like the colour have you thought of similar colour names [name]Cherise[/name], [name]Violet[/name], [name]Veronica[/name] is the traditional name of purple.
I like [name]Burgundy[/name] but for a boy
I feel like [name]Burgundy[/name] would be a name that could easily be picked on to be honest… kids might call him/her burger or point out that they are a crayon or something… kids are cruel…
I’m [name]Ron[/name] [name]Burgundy[/name].
I like it. I would use it in the middle spot. (No teasing potential if it’s in the middle, and you don’t have to worry about a good nn)
I like it! Very sophisticated and original without being to out their. It seems really girly to me so I have no idea how everyone is feeling masculine from it. I think [name]Bunny[/name] would be a cute NN especially when she is littler
Personally i thought you were thinking of it as a place name so it might cause some confusion. I think if you’re going to use a color word name that’s a little far out there or could mean more than one thing it needs to be something significant to you like ones from your university
I prefer [name]Mahogany[/name].
It sounds really clunky to use as a name, I don’t like it at all and don’t see it catching on. Sorry.
This. It sounds very feminine to me and this has always been a big time guilty pleasure.
I thought [name]Ron[/name] [name]Burgundy[/name]… sorry
haha I see it as really feminine as a few people have been saying, that’s why I thought a very masculine nn would be so great. I honestly don’t see it as masculine, I’m not sure where that’s coming from. Maybe it’s just a very confused name… It would probably never be one of my top options, but I am growing more attached to it even with everyone saying it should be for boys.
@parkerbelle That’s what I was thinking. [name]Bunny[/name] is super cute, though not my style.
@Catloverd & sweetpez13 I never thought of Burger, that does kind of suck. If she wanted, though, she could just only tell people her name was [name]Andy[/name], though.
It’s my favorite color but I’ve never use it for a name. I’m [name]Ron[/name] [name]Burgundy[/name], anyone?
I knew a girl named [name]Burgundy[/name] in elementary school (early 90s). Lots of teasing- ghandi, booger-dee, or just innocently jumbling her name because nobody ever heard of it before
Actually, [name]Bunny[/name] really is a cute nn for it! I don’t understand how it’s masculine either, as the “ee” ending sound is always feminine to me, and color names in general, other than [name]Black[/name].
