I know a little girl with this name, it's really cute on her and she has a big personality that needed a long, unique name to go with.

My last name is Diamond and it has been wonderful! People always remember it and comment positively on it. I gave it to my daughter as part of her hyphenated last name: Diamond-Jones and she loves it too. Not sure how it would "wear" as a first, but it rocks as a last :-).

I really like this name. I haven't met anyone called Diamond, so I guess it wasn't used as much in the UK.

What area do you live in? Just curious, because I haven't met ONE person named Diamond and I was born in 1990

reminds me of Diamond Stone, the NBA player. They should really add a male page too

Diamonds may be classy, but this name certainly isn't IMO.

I've known a lot of girls named Diamond in my life. I've yet to see them become strippers. What's the difference between Diamond, Ruby, Pearl, and Gemma honestly. Now Jezebel would be a stripper name..............

Stripper name. I have never met anyone with this name, and I was a 90's kid. If it was as popular as all that, wouldn't we be meeting some adult Diamonds by now...?

The information about Queen Victoria is incorrect... the future George V was Victoria's grandson, not son (George's father was Edward VII, Victoria's son), & thus Victoria Alexandra Alice Mary (who was known as Mary, Princess Royal) was Victoria's great-granddaughter, not granddaughter.

I see this name as a boy's name because of the main character in At the Back of the North Wind by George MacDonald. Although even in the book it was considered very unusual XD.

I love this for a boy more. I think that's more dope. It's so common for girls (regionally).

My 3 year old niece told me I would have a girl and name her Diamonds. Lol. We (the adults) decided that it sounds a bit like an....*ahem* stage-name.

One of the most popular names where I live. That's why I used to hate it but I've grown to like it now.
