    Bristol??? Too much baggage with this name?

    Help, we really like the name Bristol for a girl, but does it carry too much baggage? ie: Bristol Palin...

    I'm sorry I just can't get past Bristol Palin personally, but I know two people who named their child Bristol in the last couple years. So it is not completely unusable if you love it.

    For me Bristol is a not overly attractive city and cockney rhyming slang for breasts. Can't really comment on Bristol Palin as I'm not American idk how much weight her name carries.

    I apologise for any spelling or grammar errors tiny phone buttons and poor eyesight are not a great mix.

    I think of Bristol Palin too. As place names go, Bristol is not a great namesake either imo. It doesn't conjure up pleasant imagery the way, say, Paris or India does.

    Have you considered the name Brystal instead? It's not in the Nameberry database, but it does exist, and last year 73 girls in the U.S. were named Brystal. I know a ten-year-old Brystal as well.
