International Opinions on Ebony
My name is Ebony which I know is considered trashy in America and the UK. The thing is my name is the same as an American child star except she is Ebonie. And as a berry taste question 57% of berries preferred Ivory. Also I would love to live somewhere else but with my name I'm not sure how it would work. I am looking for honest opinions on Ebony. Would you assume that she was black? Would you assume she was lower class?
Please don't hold back simply because it is my name.

I find it a bit juvenile-sounding, but not trashy in the way you're thinking. More like something a middle school emo kid would try to rename herself.
I wouldn't assume an Ebony was black (although the one I used to know is black.) And while it's NMS, I do think it's a pretty sound.Gwen

Yes, I would assume she is black. I have a weird dualistic feeling about this name, where I'm conscious of the reputation (admittedly kind of stripper-ish) -- but at the same time, I know I'd feel quite differently about it if it were a "blank slate" name, with no prior associations. My blank slate opinion would be quite positive, because it has a beautiful sound and a nature/imagery-related meaning.
Given that, it's smart to ask for international opinions. I'm originally from the Midwestern USA.Married to my best friend since 6-30-11 ♥ Mama to two herding dogs, a wooly rabbit & a purring machine
