daydreams Says:


My last name is also Stone and I've never been called Stoner, either. Maybe if your kid is a real pothead it would happen (I knew someone with the last name Munch who picked up the nickname 'Munchies' in high school because of their widely-known habit), but really not a big concern otherwise.

MidnightSky Says:


Strong and rugged while also sleek and sophisticated. Kids might give the nickname stoner, but ah well. I don't think that's too bad.

Joy Stone Says:


My last name is Stone and I've never been called Stoner. It's great you're concerned about your child's name but I love Stone as a 1st name. Take care

Jenna Says:


We're considering naming our daughter Willa Stone. To me it means strong and unwaivering but I've heard others say it meant stubborn and cold to them.

I knew a "Stone" when I was teaching...if there was ever a kid with teen angst, it was this kid...working in a school can really sour a person on certain names...

DryLake Says:


"Stein" is the norwegian word for "Stone" and a very common name. I wouldn't be surprised if Stone got the nn Stoner though.. (we don't have a stone and drug related word in norwegian)

Stone sounds too much like Stoner or Stoned, My high school classes would be merciless.

I much prefer specific stones or rocks: Agate, Jasper, Granite, Quartz, Obsidian.
