What is the hoitiest-toitiest stuck up name you can think of?

What’s the most over the top name on Nameberry!

The most snobbish sounding name I can think of?
Probably something long and over the top, and European “exotic” like [name_f]Persephone[/name_f], [name_f]Pomeline[/name_f], [name_f]Clothilde[/name_f], etc.

[name_f]Primrose[/name_f] / [name_f]Theodosia[/name_f] / [name_f]Dulcinea[/name_f] / [name_f]Ambrosia[/name_f] / [name_m]Augustine[/name_m] for girls

[name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] / [name_m]Maximus[/name_m] / [name_m]Magnus[/name_m] / [name_m]Huxley[/name_m] / [name_m]Balthazar[/name_m] / [name_u]Kingsley[/name_u] / [name_m]Braxton[/name_m] for boys.

In real life? One of the stereotypical cheerleader names, like [name_u]Courtney[/name_u], [name_f]Tiffany[/name_f], [name_f]Brittany[/name_f], etc. (and yeah, I know that my name can technically be considered one of these lol), also [name_f]Brynlee[/name_f] and [name_f]Nevaeh[/name_f]

[name_m]Just[/name_m] Nameberry? [name_f]Arabella[/name_f], [name_f]Georgiana[/name_f], [name_f]Primrose[/name_f], [name_u]Winter[/name_u], [name_u]Story[/name_u], [name_u]Fable[/name_u], [name_f]Rosamund[/name_f], [name_f]Hazel[/name_f].

[name_m]Llewellyn[/name_m]. For me that is the epitome of an over-the-top name.

I think [name_f]Regina[/name_f], [name_f]Georgina[/name_f], [name_f]Priscilla[/name_f], and other super long names like [name_f]Alessandrina[/name_f] that just seem so…much…sound the snootiest


Pretentious sounding place names/surnames are what I think of, when I hear ‘stuck up’.

I know a sibling set of [name_m]Kensington[/name_m] (g) and [name_u]Remington[/name_u] (b), and it’s so pretentious, it makes me cringe. The parents and the siblings (who are adults, so I’m not talking about children here) are very stuck up in nature, so they do fit at least!

[name_f]Penelope[/name_f] and [name_m]Timotheus[/name_m]

Oenone and other Ancient Greek names the hoi polloi don’t know how to pronounce. :wink:

Except when used by actual Greeks, rather than overprivileged British folks.

[name_f]Priscilla[/name_f] and [name_u]Remington[/name_u]

I read a book where one of the main characters was named Tyrannus Basilton Grimm-Pitch. So that.

In my era it was the [name_f]Tiffany[/name_f]/[name_f]Stephanie[/name_f]'s but I think in a few years it’ll be the [name_m]Kensington[/name_m]/Emmersyns etc. The way too long surname-turned-first-name with the added y’s especially.

Hmm, probably something like [name_f]Petronilla[/name_f] or Sophonisba. Or maybe [name_f]Antonella[/name_f] or Vespertine? I also agree that all the [name_m]Kensington[/name_m]-type preppy names have a major stuck-up vibe.

[name_f]Sophronia[/name_f]. At school, a girl a year older than me named [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] has always been affectionately called [name_f]Sophronia[/name_f] as a joke. About a month ago I read a blog post that listed [name_f]Sophronia[/name_f] in its list and I choked.

I think others would be named eith too many syllables or are prestigious-sounding Greek or Latin names. [name_m]Amadeus[/name_m]. [name_m]Aurelius[/name_m]. [name_m]Cassius[/name_m]. [name_f]Apollonia[/name_f].

[name_f]Penelope[/name_f], [name_f]Persephone[/name_f], [name_f]Antonina[/name_f], and [name_m]Augustine[/name_m]. Others with like five syllables or eleven letters (like [name_f]Alexandrina[/name_f]) are on that list too.

[name_f]Cressida[/name_f] to me sounds very stuck up.

[name_m]Frederick[/name_m], [name_m]Alistair[/name_m], [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] (ugh, I do have a soft spot for it though but it sounds so pretentious in my accent), and then old names like [name_m]Reginald[/name_m].

[name_f]Georgette[/name_f], [name_f]Prudence[/name_f], [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] (!!!) and [name_f]Henrietta[/name_f]/[name_f]Harriet[/name_f].
