Where’s considering [name_m]Stowe[/name_m] for our daughter’s first name. What are your thoughts? What do you envision when you hear this name? Thanks
I don’t love it, tbh. I strongly associate it with the word stowaway, so that’s what I’m envisioning.
I want to like it but I just don’t, sorry. I hear Toe, or Stow… what about [name_u]Rowe[/name_u]?
As in [name_m]Stowe[/name_m], [name_m]Vermont[/name_m]? I think if you live in [name_u]New[/name_u] [name_f]England[/name_f], that will be the most common association, which is positive and outdoorsy.
[name_f]My[/name_f] mind goes to “stove”, not really like it , sorry.
I think of Vermont, which is not unpleasant. I like it and think it’s cool! I might have a higher tolerance for surnames as first names, especially on girls, because it’s pretty common to use maiden names/family names as first names were I live. I know girls who are Ferr!s, Ch@ndler, Meyer, Kyle, Collin$, G@rdner, and F!elding, just off the top of my head. Stowe would fit in fine.
this is my thought too
I actually quite like the sounds
Thinking about this more, I actually really like it. If you love it and it has some significance for you, go for it! I know a little girl named [name_u]Poe[/name_u], and this has the same feel. Positive associations include [name_m]Stowe[/name_m], VT and [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] [name_m]Beecher[/name_m] [name_m]Stowe[/name_m].
I think of [name_m]Stowe[/name_m], [name_m]Vermont[/name_m] as well. It could work as a name. Different but kinda cute!
Dating myself, but I immediately think of National [name_f]Treasure[/name_f]
I think it’s cute for a boy!
But I wouldn’t use [name_m]Stowe[/name_m] for a girl
I think of [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] [name_m]Beecher[/name_m] [name_m]Stowe[/name_m]. Which is a positive connotation, but the sound just doesn’t appeal to me, sorry! I agree that it sounds like something being stowed away.
If you’re going for that literary connection I think [name_m]Beecher[/name_m] is more appealing.
I‘m not a big fan of it ,it reminds me of a mix of the words stew and stone and I also agree with @futuremama that it has something of the word stowaway too,but if you love it go for it
It makes me think of Stowaway and ‘Pass and Stowe’ I’m not against surnames as first names or word names, but I’ll be honest, this,one seems a little odd too me. Not necessarily unusable or bad, just a little odd.
I really like it visually but I fear that it might kind of fall flat out loud, if that makes sense. I’d keep it for the middle name spot.
It’s interesting, not my favorite though. Definitely associate it with the word stove or toe! Maybe try like [name_u]Poe[/name_u] or [name_u]Rowe[/name_u] if you want it to sound similar!
