Traditionally, it's a boy's name. For girls, I'm afraid it's inextricably linked with Paris Hilton, which may not be the connection you want.

Just... no.

I think most people would think of Paris Hilton.

Not great for a boy or girl imo!

That's a NO from me. Awful. Cruelty to children.

To me it is absolutely 100% a boys name.

I like it. Also like Karis.

Does anyone even know who Paris Hilton is anymore?

People will think the baby was conceived there.

And not a very nice boy as he started a war.

Funny was pondering same name myself and was going to start a thread last night! I think I love it?! But it's not my usual type of name.

Paris Jackson was my first thought, never made the Paris Hilton connection.

I don’t mind it for a boy but not keen on it for a girl.

There was a girl called Paris who was a few years younger than me at school. Everyone used to laugh at her name.

I don't think it's terrible, but don't like the named after places names.

Makes me imagine a girl who is very pretty and self contained!

I think it's the name of a city, not a baby.

Might as well add Vienna and Berlin to the list.

What about Cardiff??

you did ask

@MrsMerryFestive don't stop at Cardiff. What about Bradford? Blackpool? Sunderland?

MrsMerryFestive Mon 09-Oct-17 00:34:35

To be fair to OP, maybe she wants to keep it French. Maybe Lyon or Biarritz?

I think there's far better city names you could use instead.

Rome, Florence, Vienna, for example.

Paris is a bit Paris Hilton. She's not really a positive role model.

ChocolateCrunch Mon 09-Oct-17 07:54:11

Sorry, don't like it for a girl or boy

As a city it's beautiful. As a name it comes just above Grimsby.
