Stephanie was my first name love, and I still really like it. I don't find it dated at all, just less popular than it use to be.Proud mother to William "Liam" Balthazar and Catherine "Cate" Ophelia

I think it's too dated. It's also my best friend's first name and she doesn't like it or go by it.

As a Stephanie, I am biased. But, I think it is a pretty name. It may seem a little dated right now, but it has ancient roots and has been used as a royal name for centuries. I think that its pedigree will make it a classic to stand the test of time over other 80's cheerleader names like Stacey and Courtney. And nameberry has given me ideas of nicknames I've never thought of like Effie and Fanny--and now Fawn! That's a new one!
pet peeves: nicknames as given names; unconventional spellings; masculine names on girls
not-so-guilty pleasures: five-syllable girls' names; virtue and nature names; over-the-top antique names for boys
(if i repeat name suggestions in a thread, it's because i like them! no apologies here for repeats of great names! )
IF YOU LOVE IT, USE IT!

I like it a lot better than Brittany, Courtney, Melanie, Tiffany, etc.
I can't help but think of Full House which was one of my favorite shows when I was a little girl. I wanted to be Stephanie Tanner so bad. So I adore it in that aspect. The same way I adore Nancy which reminds me of reading Nancy Drew books with my grandmother when I was little.
I do find it very 80s/90s, but not in a bad way. I don't think it's technically "vintage" yet the way Eleanor and Matilda kind of are right now. Maybe in 40 years.“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”
