Sincerely yours, Sincere

How do you feel about the name [name_u]Sincere[/name_u]? Is it a gender neutral name?

It feels like a brave, gender neutral virtue name.


I think I prefer [name_f]Sincerity[/name_f] as a name?


I would prefer [name_f]Serene[/name_f], because I’m not sure if [name_u]Sincere[/name_u] is usable as a first name. It feels more feminine than masculine to me.


I think it actually sounds masculine. Sort of like [name_u]Spencer[/name_u] or [name_u]Sinclair[/name_u]? I actually don’t think it’s bad at all.

I’m a teacher and I had a student named [name_u]Sincere[/name_u] (male). He was a very difficult child to work with which kind of taints my perspective of the name, since the only one I know wasn’t a positive association. He also lied all the time, which I did sort of appreciate the irony.

That being said, I think it’s got a nice sound and the meaning is pleasant.


I’m not personally a fan, sorry.

Seems gender neutral, leaning towards masculine. To be honest I’m not a fan, though. It feels heavy, and while naming a kid something that means sincere would be okay, naming a kid [name_u]Sincere[/name_u] seems like a lot of expectation. Also there aren’t really any good nicknames if he/she/they don’t like it… Sin is off the table, Cere sounds like sear, and [name_u]Ceri[/name_u] sounds like [name_f]Siri[/name_f], which might not too bad, but at the same time isn’t ideal.


I’m all for virtue names, but to me this one is too wordy, since I’m not used to hearing it as a name.

I think that [name_u]Sincere[/name_u] is bold, but could work especially as a middle name.
