    I think Tempest is a strong name, but I just don't see it on anything other than a fictional character. An edgy name like that only fit certain personalities and would be highly ironic on sweet little girls. I also don't like any of the nicknames, though Esti and Temi are okay.

    I don't think it's an old lady name at all. It's uncommon and strong. The only real person I have heard it on is Tempest Bledsoe from the Cosby show.

    I don't like at all. Way too wordy for me and not namey enough. Temperance is okay but Tempest is unappealing at best.

    Tempest is the opposite of clunky/old-lady name to me. It fits right in with the wonderful cute hippie names like Aurora, Lark, Winter, Snow, Frost, etc. I guess I can see how it might feel a bit older, since it's got the feeling of Temperance (which I also love) but to me it's definitely not clunky at all. Tempe is slowly growing on me as a nickname, not crazy about it though.
