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.

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.......if my husbands has no vote, then....
