I think Crim would be a cute nickname. Also, generally, if you can't think of a nickname, use the first letter of their name. Crimson would be "C".

I once had a coworker who had a daughter named Crimson. The name is out there.

Pretty but I would never ever ever use it due to the association with the Crimson Tide football team. (I'm a Tennessee Vols fan) my family would give me hell for it if I ever used it.

I know what you mean. Occasionally, you meet someone whose name shouldn't work, but somehow does on that individual. Crimson is a better spelling, in general terms, though.

SparkleNinja18 Says:


I know a girl named Krimzyn and she wears it well... I think Crimson is a much better spelling, but the name suits her. She has red hair so it's almost cheesy how well it works.

paulapuddephatt Says:


I agree. More of a middle name, really.

paulapuddephatt Says:


Scarlet or Scarlett is a more attractive name, but this is usable. I can't think of a cute nickname for it, though - not essential, but might help.

Jasmine-Joy Says:


I do really like this name yet wouldn't name my kid this

Hylian Wizard Says:


Yes! I think Crimson Chin actually ruined the name before I even thought of it. But I do like Scarlet (with one "t", that is! I'm very particular).

TheHumanCanvas Says:


This just makes me think of blood. IMO, Scarlett is much prettier.

AldabellaxWulfe Says:


I've only seen the word 'crimson' used as a way to describe the tone of blood. Also, it's not feminine at all, in my opinion at least and... anyone else think of The Crimson Chin from Fairly OddParents?

I love it in a way...but would probably only use it as a middle name. :(
