Thoughts on Mirage?
Mirage is a guilty pleasure name of mine. I love the sound, the feel, the look of it. It's mysterious and beautiful. Yes, I am aware of the connections to Vegas. I am also aware of what the word means, but I think it is very cool. What is your opinion on it?♡ Expecting baby girl December 18th ♡

Maybe middle name not first name.
For me, there is just too strong an association to the casino in Vegas to look past it...
Maybe other berries may think differently, but I can't see past it every time I see the name.I like distinct, memorable, exotic and preferably non-popular names. The kids with unique names wore them so well when I was younger and never got lost in the crowd.

Ok, thanks for your opinion. I know that kids won't think of the casino, but adults would.♡ Expecting baby girl December 18th ♡

Maybe they won't think of it themselves but that doesn't mean the association won't come up in childhood... little kids repeat stuff their parents say all the time.
And honestly in the Vegas hotel pools there are always tons of little kids running around there as parents do bring their children to Vegas... So I won't rule out children making the association (whether by themselves or with a little adult help)

There is a strip club down the interstate from me called Mirage and I can't shake that image unfortunately.
I also don't really care for the sound of it either. I'm just not a fan!
