My name is Carmen, after Carmen Miranda - just because my parents liked the name. I'm glad they chose it for me... because It's not hugelyly common and also not freakishly unusual. Family & friends call me Carm. Sometimes people spell it "Carman".
One of my best friends spells her name Carmin. It's pronounced the'same. I think both names are beautiful!
Another Carm here! I was raised in Canada and felt I was the only one in the world. They would call me CARMELITA though because I was a kid and I liked that! Never thought I go with Carmen, but after the age of 11 my sis called me Carmen /kar-min/, then we moved to Spain where everyone calld me Carmen /KAR-men/. I grew to love it. Before there were lots in Spain. Now not so much. It's powerful, feminine, not a sissy name! I want it for my daughter (7 months preg), but DH thinks two Carmens in the house is confusing. :.(
My mom was going to name me Karmyn. But i am glad she name me Desiree. YOU ROCK MOM! Desi
Carmen is too pretty to not to want to name your child. It is a very beautiful and unique name and should be used more instead of Ashley, Jasmine, Kayla, Michelle, Kelly, Che'sea... and the list goes on. People should consider this name more often.
I was named Carmen after my grandma who was named Carmen after the opera. I like it... though It's an extremely common Hispanic name, It's exotic to non Hispanics. But It's extremely irritating when people think It's a boy's name! It's not! If there was a Hispanic male named Carmen, he would definitely be laughed at.
Hi another Carmen here. I love the way my mother pronounces my name Car-Men. It really does suit me and I am proud to have it. when she was angry with me it literally looked like this CAR-MEN. Well that's about all an a big hi to everyone from Jersey in the Channel Islands, laters Carmz :o)
My name is carmen The people at Ben Voster Named me Taiwan. Thy say I look like a Chinees. But it is nice, they also say I am cute. I love the name carmen.
My name's Carmen.It's cool to know that my name can also mean Crimson or Red (i love those colours :) ) . When i was little, people would always think of Carmen as a male name, because it consists of the words "car" and "men". It was kind of anoyying hearing people making fun of my name and i had wished i could rename myself. But now, i love my name and i find that It'suits me very well :)
Carmen is my mums name. Its also my grandmothe's name..they are both from spain so i guess thats where it comes from. I like it, but i dont think my mum does
I named my daughter Carmen, after her great-grandmother (we are in the UK). I (of course) love the name and picked it because I am not so keen on feminine, frilly, polysyllabic names ending in 'a'. It's trenchant, more unusual but not poncey, it has family significance (both us parents are partly Spanish) and although it is Spanish everyone can spell and pronounce it without asking.
My name is Carmen I didn't like it for ages and now I'm starting to like it when my sister was little she used to call me Car Car and my friends and some of my fave teache's call me Carms which I love and it has so many nice meanings the only thing I get annoyed about is when a few people spell my name wrong either Carmin or Carman ?❤️
in my opinion i think It'sounds plain. I wouldn't say i hate it but i wouldn't say i love it.
I love this name I think it's so pretty and different and it never sounds tired or plain some names do over time. My grandmother named her oldest daughter my aunt Carmen and I think it's so pretty and it fits my aunt to cause my aunt is very different and unique in her own way.
My daughter's name is Carmen but spelled Karmyn. I think the name is absolutely beautiful. I just pray she will like it when she gets older.
i love this name so much =]]
I have always loved my name. Kids used to sing "Where in the world is Carmen San Diego" but it never bothered me too much. I liked that I didn't know anyone else growing up with the name until high school. I always felt special. Definitely not like all the "Ashley's," "Amanda's,"and "Jessica's" at the time.
I never liked my name growing up but I love it now that I'm an adult! I like that It's uncommon but people have heard of it before. The character Carmen in the opera was a badass babe and so was the cartoon character Carmen San Diego and It's really cool to have the'same name as two badass women like that. Plus if you google the name Carmen, every famous women with the name is a gorgeous actress or model. And i've also noticed in person that gorgeous women always have this name. i've heard that It's becoming more popular these days with the hipster crowd as a lot of them are naming their daughters Carmen because they know how cool it is. But I hope this Isn't the case because I don't want it to become too trendy!
Carmen means "song" in Latin.
I know a lady named Carmen, she is like 77 yrs old. She's really rude.
surprised no one has commented yet. anyway i like this name ok. its too masculine to be for a girl and too feminime for a babe. but w/e not my choice i will name my daughter noel and son philip.
carmen is my brat like sisters name but you gotta love her!
I Think Carmen Is A Great Baby girls Name If you Are Going to Have a Baby Name it Carmen Or Any Name You Liked . I Love The Name Carmen'too Or Mary Or Che'sea . I Know But Its Your Cholice
even'though this claims that Carmen is popular people still seem to not get Carmen...juswt everything else out of it. i've only met one other lady with the'same name as mine. i like how its not a name you get a ton of
My name is Carmen. I'm spanish so I know a lot of people named Carmen as well. I didn't like it at all, but I like it now. It means garden, song, red... I don't think It's a male name, i've NEVER known a boy named Carmen. I pronunce it Car-Men. And there's a Lana del Rey song named Carmen and I really like it haha. But people make fun of me because it has the world car and men in It'so they say I'm a transformer huh. But I'm glad people outside spain has it, because i thought only spanish people knew that name :)
my mommys name<3 i love the name & of corse my mamaaaa<3
I think the name is really pretty. It's exotic and different from all of the popular names right now; emma, isabella, grace...etc.
If I have a daughter I will use this name, however, I will spell it Karmann because my husband's favorite car is his Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. Beautiful name wiyh a personal meaning
Carmen its my name and i Hate it! well people with this name have a strong character we dont put w crap.. but the name its tooo strong.. i always go by my second name!
