Is the name Poet too weird for a girl?

I like the combination of [name_u]Poet[/name_u] [name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Luisa[/name_f], but I am concerned the [name_u]Poet[/name_u] might be a little too weird to use on a child! Any thoughts on the name would be very appreciated (: Thanks.

I think it might be a bit too much… But that depends quite a bit on you. I love [name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Louisa[/name_f], but [name_u]Poet[/name_u] at the beginning makes it sound too much like a title.

I like it in theory but for a real child I think it’s a bit too much as a FN. I think it would make a lovely middle, however.

It seems to be huge on Nameberry, but honestly I do not like it. I think it’s too flowery, even in the middle spot. I’d be more apt to use a name of or inspired by a favorite poet.

[name_u]Poet[/name_u] is a no from me. I know of a little girl named [name_f]Poem[/name_f] who they call [name_u]Po[/name_u] and I have always found that extremely odd. [name_u]Poet[/name_u] I think works as a middle name in theory, but I prefer [name_f]Sonnet[/name_f] which is a similar style.

I really dislike [name_u]Poet[/name_u] as a name. I like word names in general, but I don’t get the appeal of [name_u]Poet[/name_u] at all. [name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Luisa[/name_f] is pretty though.

No, sorry. For starter I don’t like most occupation names, as they seem too… defining? [name_u]Poet[/name_u] also seems too much. Maybe use names inspired by poets you like instead?

Can’t help thinking that people will label her as pretentious just on her name… maybe put it as third if you love it?

It does seem quite cliché hipster… but I do actually quite like it. I think it has a sweet, spunky, simple sound - it holds the same appeal as [name_f]Lark[/name_f] or [name_u]Wren[/name_u] to me, which fall into the self-consciously hipster category too (as do my own kids’ names, I know!)

I think you’re doing the right thing pairing it with mainstream, traditional, clearly gendered middles. [name_u]Poet[/name_u] [name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Luisa[/name_f] is a fresh and pretty combo and totally wearable [name_f]IMO[/name_f].

I’m sorry but i don’t like it, it reminds me of the word “pet”.

Definitely too out there for me.

Sorry but I find it cheesy, for a girl or a boy.

It’s pretty bad (and I say this as someone whose partner has an MFA in poetry). Writers would roll their eyes, and so would everybody else.

I love the idea of [name_u]Poet[/name_u] as a name, it feels really fresh and spunky. It could be embarrassing or awkward if she hates poetry though, or has to write it for school at some point and isn’t too good at it- both of which are entirely possible; a lot of people aren’t really into poetry and I think most people have to do some in school. It’d make an interesting middle though!

It sounds like you’re introducing someone by their profession, “this is the poet, [name_f]Ella[/name_f] [name_f]Luisa[/name_f].”

I think it works pretty well actually, I could picture a little girl named [name_u]Poet[/name_u] in 2017. It’s the type of name that would take some getting used to in everyday conversation (which It think is the case for a lot of word names), but it has a simple and charming nature.

The only way I could imagine stomaching [name_u]Poet[/name_u] as a first name would be if she goes by [name_f]Posy[/name_f].

In the minority here, but I think it’s fine. [name_u]Poet[/name_u] would fit right in with [name_u]Lyric[/name_u], [name_f]Olive[/name_f], [name_u]Navy[/name_u], and Luxe.

My only concern is that when introducing, it would seem like a title.

I like it - it feels fresh and interesting to me. I think [name_u]Po[/name_u] is very cute as a nn as well. I like it more than a lot of other word names like [name_f]Lark[/name_f] and [name_u]Wren[/name_u].

I like it too. I also like Poeta and [name_f]Poem[/name_f], and I think [name_f]Poetry[/name_f] would be a beautiful middle. [name_u]Po[/name_u] as a nickname is adorable. I don’t think it would be out of place at all with the varieties being chosen today.
