Thread: Topaz as a first name
August 1st, 2014 07:14 PM #6
I agree that the first syllable is a little off-putting, but I like the nn Paz. I guess Topaz make sense for a baby born in November, but "November" might be more palatable. Somehow Topaz sounds southwestern to me. I imagine that Topaz lives in Tempe, Arizona or Taos, New Mexico, and is maybe a jewelry artisan? Haha, it's funny when you get not just an image but a whole story out of a name.Amity|Colette|Flora|Lark|Linnea|Louisa|Nina|Nora

I've heard it as a first name before (on a teenager girl, who would be around 18 now) but I don't find it appealing at all. There's just something kind of harsh about it and as others have said, the "toe" sound is rather off putting.

I love it. It casts such a rich, golden glow in my mind when I say it. The nickname Paz (peace) is wonderful too.Mary, Esther, Constance, Susanna, Flora, Odelia, Dossie, Yuki, Louisa, Bettina, Thomasin, Bessie, Camellia, Magnolia, Fay, Axelle, Verity, Magdalena, Evangeline, Josephine, Una, Raphaela, Francesca, Gardenia, Theodora, Endellion, Rosemary, Daphne, Antonia, Pascale, Frances.

There is a Bar by that name not far from my house. I think it might be the reason I find it difficult to see this as a first name. First associations can be very influencing I guess....Expecting Our First.....
DH doesn't want to discuss names until
we know if it's a boy or girl. GRRRRR ARGH!
