What does everyone think of the name [name]Sloane[/name] for a girl? What kind of person do you imagine [name]Sloane[/name] would be? Thanks!

Honestly I think of the girlfriend on Faris [name]Bueller[/name]'s [name]Day[/name] Off. She was pretty and cool, so that’s what I imagine. I love the name though! It’s not super common, but most people will have heard of it.

I think of the girlfriend from the movie Beastly and the doctor from [name]Grey[/name]'s anatomy and his daughter. I personally don’t like it on a girl but if you do then go for it.

I will be totally honest and say that it is one of my least favorite girls names. I simply don’t understand the appeal – to me it doesn’t look nice or sound nice at all. That said, I know that many of the names I love get the same reaction from people, so it is all about personal taste. [name]Sloane[/name] is just not my style at all, but you will never find a name that gets 100% thumbs up from people. But I do know a handful of people that [name]LOVE[/name] the name, so obviously there is some appeal.

For some reason I see someone named [name]Sloane[/name] as a detective-type person. Someone who is really intelligent and curious and likes to figure things out. I like it :slight_smile:

To be honest, it is one of my least favourite names, too. I really don’t like the sound at all. It makes me think of ‘slime’ and ‘alone’.

Well, we named our daughter this, so it’s hard to be objective… but before I associated the name with my cute and spunky 2-year-old, I thought of it as a strong, confident woman, one who could be an artist or a CEO. It’s an ancient Celtic name that means “female warrior” so I liked that, too.

I’m another who doesn’t get the appeal of the name, especially on a girl. It doesn’t look or sound attractive to me, at all.

I’m not a huge fan. It makes me think of the British slang term “Sloanie,” which is kind of like calling someone a prep or preppy in the US, but with the added characteristic of being kind of dim and anti-intellectual. I am not British myself, so I don’t know if it is still frequently used, but some years ago my British friends used to use it very disparagingly.

It also just doesn’t sound very attractive to my ear, but that’s clearly a subjective point that is totally irrelevant if it sounds good to you.

Really enjoy it! I almost used it for my daughter but we changed it at the last minute.

I picture an artistic girl. [name]Long[/name] hair, fun-loving…someone people are drawn to.

I don’t really care for [name]Sloane[/name]. The sound isn’t appealing to me. If I imagine someone named [name]Sloane[/name], it’s either [name]Eric[/name] [name]Dane[/name] from Greys Anatomy, or his annoying daughter, also named [name]Sloane[/name].

I’m quite torn on [name]Sloane[/name]. I do believe it should be sloane for a girl and [name]Sloan[/name] for a boy. My dilemma is I love the Name, so I like it on either. However, I feel it’s a boys name that girls are taking over and I’m a little tired of losing names to girls.

[name]Sloane[/name] evokes the same image in my head as most unisex/no frills girls names do. I see cute spunky girls who love ballet & can kick butt on the soccer field. Strong, independent AND girly! This particular name does remind me of [name]Ferris[/name] Beuller, which is a good association for me :slight_smile:

I met a beautiful little girl names [name]Sloane[/name], and ive loved it ever since. It represents prep and spunk, which is why,i love it. Same reason I na,ed my daughter [name]Tess[/name].

I knoe a girl named [name]Sloane[/name] who is tall, blonde, and athletic, so thats what i think of. it seems to suit her.
