I think the brand adds a bit of modern glitter to the name but it doesn't take away the roots. It is still a beautiful and unique biblical choice. I know a few women that have various brands attached to their name like Joann (fabrics) and Dove (soap) and their name is still individual to them/ their parents. Also, I think all the pre-teen Claire's during the height for 00's fashion (Claire's accessories) felt pretty super cool!

"These are my daughters, Sephora, Maybelline, and Nyx, and my sons, Mac and Jeffree Star."

Sephora Cutajar Says:


My name is Sephora... obviously my mum had the intention of the biblical name behind it, however in my 23 years of living i never got teased on because its a brand name... its the opposite way... I always receive compliments on my name :)

Even if it wasn't a make up store (um Zara never hurt Zara just saying) it would sound like something in Pandora, Andromeda territory. very bold but risky to me.

Floris Says:


Well, where I live naming children after a brand is seen as tacky/trashy, unfortunately :(

gogohem Says:

Raven Says:


its such a beautiful name ruined by the brand

Sophielacey92 Says:


the child may like it for a little while but i think in the long run it is not a good association, seems snobby or spoiled, i think people might assume the mother named her that in honor of the make up company which would be problematic...

lexibatt Says:


The only thing that would stop me from using this is that its a makeup brand. If I ever named my daughter this than it might get some "teasing" other than that I like it.

DearestJules Says:


I don't think the cosmetics brand is really a negative. I mean, it might suck that that's the only association anyone has with the name (I bet a girl named Sephora would get "Like the makeup brand?" a lot), but what girl wouldn't like having a makeup company share her name? I'd think that would be a cool thing.
