Ignorant of the classics.

I completely associate it with Ms Hilton. In my mind, it is not a particularly positive association.

Nellelephant Wed 14-Aug-13 09:25:21

I immediately think of its celebrity connection - Hilton or Jackson. It's what people mistake my name for if they haven't heard me paid attention properly so it will always annoy me.

That's such a shame. I think it's a good name but ruined by Paris Hilton (who I met once, she really is a nob in RL).

A spoilt brat I had to endure high school with... Sorry, that name conjures up some bad memories! Not a fan of the name for either sex.

meditrina Wed 14-Aug-13 09:27:19

It's a good name on a boy

It doesn't have good associations for me but only because of Paris Hilton. Sorry!

thatwasadaftidea Wed 14-Aug-13 09:28:45

well yes, it is a boys name.

any offers of an alternative? Eris?

There's a lot of Katie Hopkins wannabes in this topic just lately.

I like Paris, I know one ,she's lovely.

I would wonder if the baby was conceived there, I would also assume it was a boy's name, apart from the Paris Hilton connection of course.

Paris hilton which leads on to sex tapes sad

Not good for me either, I once worked with a boy who wanted a sex change, before he could get it he had to live life as a woman. He chose Paris as his girls name.
He was an attention seeking knob, and when he was very easily accepted by all who worked with him, he decided he didn't want to be a woman anymore and changed back.
So he always comes to mind when I hear the name Paris, sorry
