What do you think of the name Chevy for a girl?

My DH wants to name our daughter Chevy Elizabeth because we said when we were teens if we ever had a daughter we would name her that. I still kinda think its cute. What do you all think?

  • If u r going to name a kid after a car,it should be a boy!!! Besides do u want her getting teased? like: Hey Chevy,can I ride on u? Kids can be cruel!!! Think about the name,She will have it her whole life!!! I hope u both reconsider it and change your minds.

  • I don't care for it all. Elizabeth is a beautiful, classic name, but Chevy just sounds ugly IMO.

  • you say a lot of things when you are young and immature. When you grow up you CAN change your minds.
    do not like it.....
    and I agree about the guys teasing her about going for a ride

  • Did you know you can actually make some money that way? You can contact Chevrolet and tell them you are willing to name your child that name, see if they will sponsor her... I am serious... It's happening! Why not take advantage of it!!

  • No, sorry to disappoint, but please no!.....You wouldn't want your daughter being made fun of at school as she grows up would you?Chevy sounds more of a boy's name.... and its sounds better on a car. There a way too many cuter and better names out there for little girls! But this is only my personal opinion.

  • Honestly? It sounds like a name that a porn star would give herself. If you want a similar sounding name, go with Chevonne. It's an alternate spelling to the Irish name "Siobhan", and it would sound nice with Elizabeth.
