    I’ve loved the name Misty for a long time now, but would it be ok to use on a child?

    It’s cute, but it does seem a little dated to me. And I’ve heard some friends named Misty say some people consider it “stripperish,” or ditzy, unfortunately. Maybe something like Melissa nn Misty?

    It makes me think of someone kind of ditzy or maybe a horse.

    I agree with Tara, it reminds me of Pokemon. It would be cute as a nickname though.

    I know absolutely nothing about Pokémon. It does sound a little stripperish I guess. The other connotation I was thinking of was Misty Day from American Horror Story, but I can’t imagine that ever being a bad thing…

    I love it, but I also grew up with Pokemon, so that’s a big part of my positive association with it. Ithink it’s cute and spunky!

    It’s super dated to me. I don’t think it really works now.

    I actually think it’s pretty cute, and also think of Pokemon which I grew up watching. :-) In reality, I’d probably keep it as a nickname though. I don’t think it is the sort of name that would always be taken seriously.
