This is awkward.

Annaaaa Says:


I think Banana might be worse.

ceruleanstardust Says:


Exactly what I was just thinking.

Bethany Says:


I get King because it is a legitimate surname name. But Prince and Princess are shockingly bad. And I try hard not to judge. But wow. Some of the names in the top 1000 are making me question people's health.

HarrietKimberleyG Says:


This is like a royal calling her child Commoner. It’s just silly, tacky and mucky.

FractalShadow Says:


If you are attracted to this name, why not go with something else that means princess, or even hiding it in the middle name slot?

I'm a Banana Says:


Even for a pet this is Persian or poodle only.

91flaviaj Says:


I'm apologize for good people that have this name, but I have to be honest, this is the worst girl name ever to me. Princess is the epitome of trashy , girly-girl and cringeworthy name.

I'm a Banana Says:


Why is this in the top 1000?

Sim flower Says:


pet names should not be regular names

Carolinekalmes Says:


A friend of a friend has a girlfriend named Princess. I always thought he was just calling her a cutesy relationship name until I realized it was her actual name.

Um, NO

NerdyNameGeek Says:


I know three people named Princess! They're all dogs...

Fluffykitten101 Says:


It sounds like something Donald Trump or Kanye West and Kim Kardashian would've named one of their kids.

This and Precious....not very precious to me.

Marlz81 Says:


This is totally a dog name.

kpearl8 Says:


Well it's not very sophisticated that's for sure, but cruel? Besides America has no royal or noble titles for the names to conflict with, so there's no concrete reason why they should be banned. Military titles maybe....

rgp19 Says:


I think that's a good idea. Unfortunately, we don't have that in America

CupcakeGirl13 Says:


My mom said she new a princess. And she doesn't think its that bad of a name. But I really don't like this name. To weird....

CupcakeGirl13 Says:


DON'T name your child this! Just think of all the trouble they will have to go through! It is just not right. Plus teasing in school.

SimoneKadele Says:


Yeah but King and Prince aren't that great of names, either.

rbj84 Says:


Keep it as a pet name!

Guest Says:


This year alone: at my cousin's high school graduation there was a Princess Anna, I work with 2 girls named Princess (who are teenagers), and I just heard Princess on Love and Hip Hip Hollywood. If males can be King and Prince I guess Princess is just as viable!

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


Several people had this type of name at my brother's old school. I think there are worse names out there, but I don't like Princess either.

SunKissedChild Says:


I think it should be illegal everywhere- it's cruel and looks pretty trashy anyway.

JessicaRose7 Says:


I'm not sure about other countries, but it's against the law to name your child Princess in New Zealand because it's a title. The same goes for Prince, Doctor, Sir, Colonel...
