    Default Anybody used fragrance as inspiration for a child's name?

    I'm sure someone out there is so into fragrance that they couldn't help but name their child after something related. At least a middle name. C'mon, any lil' Creeds out there?
    Christians,Zegnas, Gios, or Hugos?

    well, santos was a good name for a cat i almost adopted.
    then i changed my mind about the cat because of allergy.

    I wouldn't think the kid would be happy if people called him: VIRGIN island water.
    Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.

    Maybe start a thread called "Worst fragrance names for a new-born". I'd probably say "Happy" and "Pleasures".

    Daughter's middle name is Joy, but not because of the perfume... it never occurred to me, in fact.

    Her grandmother's name was Rose. Now wouldn't it be funny if I'd named her Diabolo Rose?

    Yes, I have often thought of naming my firstborn "Jicky Dzongkha Dzing". I quite like "Daytona 500 Sables-Cumming", too.

    Either or.

    Even earlier than that. Chlo - the fragrance and the name - was very popular in the late '70s and early '80s. I still love that original Chlo.

    Ralph Lauren's Lauren is another one that started a huge trend in baby girl names at about the same time.


    eta - I neglected my original point for this post, which was that my grandmother once had a pug named Giorgio, and he was definitely named after the fragrance!

    My doughter`s name is Jacinta, which is the female version of Jacinto (spanish word for Hyacinth). The flower itself is cheerful and lovely....exactly like my tiny Jacinta! but, when my wife and I chose the name, was only because we liked it!

    This is like the people who call their children "Chardonnay" , I won't comment on the sort of people who think this is a wonderful choice !!
