If I were to have another little girl, she'll Agnes Victoria or Agnes Violet. I love this name and the fact that it is not on the charts makes its appeal to me even stronger.

I feel that It brings out the feminine side of me. It is a classic name. so classic, that everytime I get into trouble, my mother or my father will shout AGNES out loud. (Its my real name, they usually call my by my nickname.)....hahahaha

My mane is Agnes came from the name of St. Agnes. She was a beautiful girl with a beautiful heart.

It's an old ladies name, plain and simple. It's not such a bad name at all. I beli've It's of Spanish origin, like Ines (pronounced EE-nes).

Its okay i suppose, i can see the awful and old fashioned side of it, but in away its unique and pretty, i live near a village called St.Agnes and ive always like the name

My mother was Agnes, and as a youngster I did not like the name'she was named after her grandmother. I now think it a beautiful name. For those who think it old ladyish that time for you is not far off, it comes quicker than you think. To put it in perspective a 95 year old thinks an 80 year old is a youngster

It's an old lady name. Sounds like a 70 year old retired lunch lady.

Borne by American actress Agnes Moorehead of the TV series Bewitched (she played Endora). Though Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke and American actress Elisabeth Shue have daughters named Agnes, I think that hardly anyone else is likely to copy them anytime soon, for I think that It's still a hideous name and more so than Lillian, Beatrice, and Dorothy (the first of the three is now popular again but the other two are currently unpopular - for now at least).

I was almost named Agnes and thankfully It's almost. I don't find the name beautiful because It'sounds close to "acne" and worse, "agnas" which in Filipino language means "to decompose" specifically a corpse. But if You're not sensitive to what a name'sounds like and you love classic unique names, you may like it.

When I was younger I could not picture myself with my Amber being older. However, I'm now approaching 30 and I can't see myself with any other name. I like it. It's unique. Not too many people have my name. Everyone, unless you are really unaware...can spell my name w/o help.

Still old ladyish, despite BrIt'sh supermodel Agyness Deyn (real name Laura Hollins), who chose a rather unusual spelling of her name. No offense, however, but the unusual spelling of what is otherwise meant for oldsters is even more stupid than the millions of little Madisons, Caitlins, Siennas, and Taylors out there. Would YOU name a child Agyness? I wouldn't!
