11 unforgivable girl names with their meanings, mistakes everyone makes – some parents don’t know that “Sara” means “princess,” or if you didn’t know that “Priscilla” was once an ancient Roman male name, then this article is for you! And lastly there are two short takeaways (bullet points) about how to avoid making the same mistakes we all make when naming our daughters.

  • Priscilla: An Ancient Roman Male Name
  • Sara: Princess
  • Vicky: Insulting Noise
  • Victoria: Victory.

So for example, if you have a daughter named Priscilla and she’s not happy with her name, then there are some options! You can change it to Pricilla which is more feminine in Spanish or Francesca in Italian. If the sound of “Vicky” just annoys your child (and everyone around them) then they could pick something like Victoriella instead – again these names would be changed to fit their culture better than sticking with the original pronunciation. And lastly, our daughters may think that being called Victoria sounds glamorous but hold on before we go too far down this path because it will eventually either lead to someone calling her Vicki or worse yet.. Victorious.”

Poppy

This name is pretty and sweet, but the word also means poppycock!

Apple

The apple of your eye can cause problems. What if she doesn’t like being picked? She’s going to be a troublemaker when she grows up. Or what if someone tries apples for the first time because their parents wanted them to have a good strong body–and they don’t enjoy it at all? That will lead to some awkward moments that could ruin friendships or relationships in the future.

-Sally (or Sarah)

Calling her Sally isn’t as bad as calling her Sarah since there are many variations on this name but both are too plain Jane for our taste buds here at Crave.

Bethany (or Beth)

It’s a pretty name, but it means the house of figs–a place that no one wants to live in. And if she goes by Beth instead, there are many other meanings including what we might do for an Easter egg hunt and where you might find your high school diploma to hang on your wall.

What’s worse than living with fig trees? Nothing! Figgy pudding anyone?

Eww..not likely when it comes from this kitchen. Plus everyone knows about the awkwardness of yelling “BETHANY!” across campus or at the grocery store; by going with something more original, her classmates will have trouble calling out her real first name too.

Tiffany (or Tiff)

Another pretty name, but it means “the Lord is gracious.” That doesn’t sound too bad on its face, but it’s the Latin word for Thursday. And if you’re not Catholic and don’t know that every time you say your daughter’s name–over and over again all day–you’ll be reminded of how many days are left in the week until Sunday rolls around? We can think of a thousand better options.

The last thing any parent wants to do is remind their children about something they have no control over! Plus who knows what else this girl will get teased with because her parents couldn’t come up with a good idea when naming her;

she could be Tiffany or Tiff and her parents might as well have called her Tease.

Isabella

Isabella is a name that means “God’s promise,” which sounds lovely on its own, but it just doesn’t seem to work for the modern age of Twitter handles. It was never meant to carry such weight in today’s society, where every post has an “@username” attached at the end (ahem: jillmcord). You don’t want your daughter having difficulty using social media because she can’t figure out how get rid of all those vowels from her handle!

A better choice would be.. Gillian? Gwen? Something more streamlined than this outdated

Mistake #11: Elizabeth

“Elizabeth is a woman who was born in Hungary during the 15th century, and she became one of the most powerful queens ever to sit on the English throne. She led her people into war against Scotland. After leading an army across England from Yorkshire to London, with only six thousand men, she defeated twenty-five thousand Scots at Stoke Field near Newark.”

Graceful yet still tough enough for those unruly boys next door or as a nickname!

This feminine name now starts higher than it used to because today’s girls want names that are strong but still sound soft and delicate. The trend is towards more shortening like Lizzie instead of Lizbet or Bethany instead of Elizabeth.

Mistake #12: Sarah

“Sarah is an ancient Hebrew name and means ‘to laugh, to rejoice.’ The most famous woman with this name was the wife of Abraham. Called ‘the mother of nations,’ she had a child at age ninety.” She’s as old as Elizabeth but not nearly so popular (at least in America). Like many biblical names, we don’t know how it might have been used back then because nobody wrote things down until much later on. We do see some variation though – Sally or Sara for example! And while her meaning is usually thought to be “princess,” there are stories that say simply she who laughs” She will always be one of those mystery

The names that we give our daughters have a huge impact on their future.

As parents, it’s important to be mindful of the kind of impression you are giving your children and how this will affect them in the long-run. There is no such thing as an unforgivable girl name, but some choices may not seem like they’ll work out too well for either parent or child down the line if she doesn’t share her father’s last name.

A lot can happen between now and when your little lady grows up; do yourself a favor and consider these 11 Unforgivable Girl Names That Mean Warrior Mistakes Everyone Makes before settling on one that might haunt both parties later in life: Bella: it’s a beautiful name, but if you’re named Bella and your dad isn’t Edward then this is one of the most unforgivable girl names that are out there. Melissa or Melissa Lynn: for those who don’t know how to spell their daughter’s name, they might end up with a lot more than just an “i” versus “y.” Keira: while Keira has her own charms, it may not be worth all the spelling trouble in the long run. Fiona: another popular choice when it comes to girls’ names, Fiona may seem like a good fit at first glance-but many people have no idea what she pronounces as (fee-uh-naw).
