Thought on these 12 "sassy but classy" names?

I’m curious, what are your first impressions of these names that are on my “sassy but classy” list? Thoughts both on the name itself and any immediate thoughts on personality, hair color, etc that you might have… If you have similar suggestions for my list I’d love to hear them!

[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] “[name_f]Vivi[/name_f]”



I know a young [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] (nicknamed “[name_f]Vivi[/name_f]”), [name_f]Eliza[/name_f], [name_f]Freya[/name_f] and [name_f]Willa[/name_f] well enough that they now dominate how I think of those names. For the others:

[name_f]Eve[/name_f] seems old-school Hollywood glamour and more reserved.

[name_f]Greta[/name_f] and [name_f]Clara[/name_f] seem like smart hard-workers.

[name_f]Zara[/name_f] seems more exotic, someone who enjoys collecting chunky jewelry from around the world and can make sharp remarks without coming off as mean.

[name_f]Viveka[/name_f] and [name_f]Allegra[/name_f] seem outgoing, maybe with somewhat unruly curly hair.

[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] either seems more shy and bookish or the person who is friends with everyone and resolves all the drama.

I really like the name [name_f]Coralie[/name_f], but when I picture the name I imagine someone a little gullible, or someone who doesn’t realize everyone has wealthy parents who pay for things like hers do.

adore :


Well [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f], [name_f]Willa[/name_f], and [name_f]Zara[/name_f] are all in my top 5(ish). All gorgeous with a bit of spunk, [name_f]IMO[/name_f]. I also love [name_f]Greta[/name_f], [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f], and [name_f]Clara[/name_f]. Great list. To me [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] is the definition of “sassy but classy”.

[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] I picture a spoiled celebrity brat.
[name_f]Eve[/name_f] I think of [name_f]Bette[/name_f] [name_m]Davis[/name_m].
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] reminds me of My Fair Lady.
[name_f]Willa[/name_f] is [name_f]Willa[/name_f] Cather.
[name_f]Allegra[/name_f] is lovely but a medicine.
[name_f]Zara[/name_f] sounds like an ancient fortune teller.
[name_f]Freya[/name_f] is exotic and traveling and an adventurer.
[name_f]Greta[/name_f] is [name_f]Garbo[/name_f] of course and gorgeous.
[name_f]Clara[/name_f] is Nutcracker Suite and Aunt [name_f]Clara[/name_f] on Bewitched.
[name_f]Coralie[/name_f] annoys me.
[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] is a creative, alternate teenaged girl.
[name_f]Viveka[/name_f] is strident but [name_f]Viveca[/name_f] is full of vitality and life and love.

Of these my great favorites are [name_f]Freya[/name_f], [name_f]Greta[/name_f], [name_f]Clara[/name_f], and [name_f]Viveca[/name_f], with [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] a second.

The only ones I don’t care for are [name_f]Eve[/name_f] and [name_f]Allegra[/name_f]. I like [name_f]Eliza[/name_f], [name_f]Coralie[/name_f], [name_f]Willa[/name_f], [name_f]Clara[/name_f], and [name_f]Viveka[/name_f]. I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f], [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f], [name_f]Greta[/name_f], [name_f]Freya[/name_f], and [name_f]Zara[/name_f].

Thanks so much everyone!!! I really appreciate the feedback ”

The only one I really dislike on your list is [name_f]Allegra[/name_f]. Unfortunately it is an allergy medication and I can’t break the association.

My favorites on your list are [name_f]Freya[/name_f] and [name_f]Willa[/name_f]… They make me think of someone who is feminine, strong, and spunky.

When I read the title of your thread “sassy and classy” I immediately thought of [name_f]Maxine[/name_f].

[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] “[name_f]Vivi[/name_f]” - [name_u]Blue[/name_u]/[name_u]Green[/name_u] eyes. Small and blonde. [name_f]Vivi[/name_f] is really cute and makes me think of a little girl.
[name_f]Eve[/name_f] - Simple. Could have a bold middle name.

[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] “[name_f]Vivi[/name_f]”- I love versatility of this name! [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] is such a sophisticated name and will be lovely when she gets older! [name_f]Vivi[/name_f] is such a cute nickname that I love! The first thought I have with this name is country singer [name_u]Jessie[/name_u] [name_u]James[/name_u] [name_m]Decker[/name_m]’s daughter, so brown hair and big, brown eyes!
[name_f]Eve[/name_f]- I do love this name but I have always been a little more partial to [name_f]Eva[/name_f]/[name_f]Ewa[/name_f] more!
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f]- I love this name but with the pronunciation of ee-lee-za instead of ee-lie-za! Beautiful name either way

[name_f]Allegra[/name_f]- Pretty Italian name but has too many medical connotations
[name_f]Zara[/name_f]- [name_u]Love[/name_u]! For me this name makes me think of [name_f]Zara[/name_f] [name_m]Phillips[/name_m], so it would not be a bad name to have!
[name_f]Freya[/name_f]- It’s okay! I like [name_f]Freja[/name_f] better! I pictured a red haired little girl
[name_f]Greta[/name_f]- [name_u]Love[/name_u], love, love this one!
[name_f]Clara[/name_f]- I love this name but more with the [name_f]Klara[/name_f] spelling

[name_f]Viveka[/name_f]- Not a fan

Thought on these 12 “sassy but classy” names?

My first thought is “Wow! What a great bunch of Names!”

[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f]*"[name_f]Vivi[/name_f]" - I love the lively vitality of this truly “Sassy but Classy” Name! [name_f]Vivi[/name_f] is DEFINITELY my Favourite Nickname too, a zippy, bouncy, springy little Name! When I imagine a [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] I see two different Girls visually, either 1. fair skin, long wavy Caramel coloured hair and greenish brown [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] eyes and a fairly tall, slender, willowy frame. University aged. Or 2. A fairly short, petite, live wire with dark brown skin, her curly black hair in three thick plaits around the top of her head, and shining Chocolate brown eyes! Middle School aged.

[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] 1. is Artistic and Creative! She loves wearing soft, floaty fabrics and large, floppy sunhats and, sometimes, huge oval sunglasses! She laughs easily and often! She is bubbly and bright and loves spending time with her Friends outside or shopping, but not just sitting around doing nothing!

[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] 2. is spunky and zany! She loves wearing crazy hairstyles and colourful playsuits! She loves talking, singing and laughing loudly absolutely anywhere! She is highly intelligent and needs to be constantly stimulated or she gets very bored. She loves Dogs, Maths, [name_f]Music[/name_f] and her Family and Friends!

[name_f]Eve[/name_f] lives in a sunny location like [name_f]Florida[/name_f] or [name_u]California[/name_u] and loves the [name_m]Beach[/name_m]!

Other similar Names you might like are [name_f]Ava[/name_f], [name_f]Eva[/name_f] and [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u].

[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] - [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] Doolittle from “My Fair Lady” is always my first thought! It’s really hard for me to visualise anyone else, but definitely a pale complexion and [name_u]Auburn[/name_u]-brown long hair. A strong, definite, spunky personality and someone who always speaks her mind, even if it gets her into trouble! Sometimes cheeky and always intelligent.

Other similar Names you might like are [name_f]Liza[/name_f] and [name_f]Olive[/name_f].

[name_f]Willa[/name_f]*- A twelve year old Girl with fluffy, unruly, medium length, light [name_u]Auburn[/name_u] hair, a lightly freckled, fair complexion, and haunting pale green eyes. A bit of a misfit who has been hurt and built up a defensive wall around her, but a good and loyal [name_m]Friend[/name_m] to those who win her trust. When she relaxes she laughs and dances freely!

Other similar Names you might like are [name_f]Melia[/name_f], [name_f]Malia[/name_f], [name_f]Milla[/name_f] and Wistow.

[name_f]Allegra[/name_f] - A vivacious Name full of life, fire and vitality! A passionate Italian Beauty in her late twenties/early thirties who never lets anyone control or rule her, especially not her Husband or three Sons, aged 8, 6 and 3! She is very close to her Mama, who is equally fiery, and loves, but constantly challenges, her Father!

Other similar Names you might like are Vivace, [name_f]Aleta[/name_f]/Aleeta (pronounced [name_m]Ah[/name_m]-[name_u]LEE[/name_u]-tah) and Allegria!

[name_f]Zara[/name_f]*- [name_f]Zara[/name_f] [name_m]Phillips[/name_m], [name_m]Prince[/name_m] [name_m]William[/name_m]'s Cousin, immediately comes to mind and completely epitomises this Name for me!

Other similar Names you might like are [name_f]Dawn[/name_f], [name_f]Zsa[/name_f] [name_f]Zsa[/name_f] and [name_f]Sara[/name_f].

[name_f]Greta[/name_f] is usually direct but can be flirtatious and seductive around Men. Very confident and assertive.

Other similar Names you might like are [name_f]Marit[/name_f] and [name_f]Gina[/name_f].

[name_f]Clara[/name_f] - I’m afraid [name_f]Clara[/name_f] does NOT belong in this category for me. [name_f]Clara[/name_f] is one of my very Favourite Names, but does NOT feel Sassy AT ALL to me, sorry! [name_f]Clara[/name_f] is a sweet, innocent, pure, gentle, kind, and loving young [name_m]German[/name_m] Girl with light, [name_u]Golden[/name_u] Blonde hair which flows in soft waves down her back.

Other similar Names you might like are [name_f]Gretel[/name_f], [name_f]Sarah[/name_f] and [name_f]Elise[/name_f].

[name_f]Coralie[/name_f] - EXACTLY the same as [name_f]Clara[/name_f], a Name I love which is not Sassy at all for me! By the way, I also [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] [name_f]Vivienne[/name_f] and [name_f]Viveka[/name_f], and really like most of the Names which you have suggested, so I am not anti-Sassy Names, I just don’t feel like [name_f]Clara[/name_f] and [name_f]Coralie[/name_f] ARE Sassy!

[name_f]Coralie[/name_f] has pale Blonde hair, and a pale complexion, and is a young Mermaid with a pastel blue and pink tail! She is inquisitive but shy, sweet and friendly, but in a quiet way.

[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] - Yet another Classy but not Sassy Name for me! One of my Daughter’s Penpals is the only [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] I know and she is completely different to how I imagine the Name, but equally unsassy!

Penpal [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] is medium height and weight with long, thick, wavy, dark brown hair and pale skin. She is a straight forward, no nonsense Tomboy with a bright, bubbly, friendly demeanour and a positive outlook on life!

My image of the Name [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] is much closer to that of my Daughter who writes to her: soft, very sensitive, warm, sweet, innocent, kind, bright eyed and wondering, in love with the beauty she sees in the world! A pretty Blonde with pale, sky blue eyes!

Other similar Names you might like are [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] and [name_f]Thalia[/name_f].

[name_f]Viveka[/name_f] - Aha! Back on track again! [name_f]Viveka[/name_f] is Sassy but Classy indeed! :slight_smile: Although [name_f]Viveka[/name_f] has Frisian origins, I imagine a vibrant young Spanish Girl, cheeky and bright, with bouncing curls and dancing feet laughing and playing in the street! :slight_smile:
