Rubyknipe Says:


It's a very cute name. At first it was very unique, but it's becoming more and more popular! I am a sucker for seldom used names.However this is a beautiful name. Very whimsical and fun.

Pixie is in the top 500 in England and Wales, probably because of Pixie Lott. But I don't even think that's her real name. The same happened with Tulisa, whose name is actually Tula, but Tulisa ended up in the top 500 for a year or two. I think when a name is unique to a celebrity, it's best avoided, since those kinds of names get old quickly, but that's just me. Oh well.

One of my all-time favorite bands The Pixies makes me want to use this. But my family would shut it down immediately so it'd be a nickname for a P name like Patricia (which I love and don't understand why people think the name is old! It's lovely!!).

Caroline Says:


I don't like it. I feel its too commonly used already!!
