Mistique

One of my friends daughters is going to call her baby this. It's one of those names when she told me I was like "what?!" hmmmm... her choice (of course) but I really don't know about that one!

Sorry OP to me it sounds like a porn name, or at least a name a baby/little/young girl should not be called. Hopefully the girl gets called Misty which is a little better, not a whole lot but a little. Apologies to anyone who has called their child this name already and reads this

NMS at all, I think it sounds terrible. The NN Misty is much better though.

I used to know a girl named Misty, and that name suited her. Mistique is not as nice IMO though.

I also know a girl called "Misty" - sounds okay as that what we have always know her by. I thought that Mistique was just a NN- but she just told me that no, this will be her name. I better not tell you what her middle name will be!! Poor kid is what I thought...

One of my kids went to school with a Misty. Unfortunately her last name was something that turned it into a name you probably wouldn't want to call a human being, let alone a little girl. I have disliked the name Misty and anything like it ever since.

Come on people, what is the problem?   That it is unfamiliar to you as a name?  That it is also a modern common noun in English?  That it is French?  That it has a varied spelling?  Or that you know a heap of porn stars called this?  Or even just one?


To me it is just a pleasant example of a style of name. Similar names would be Harmony, Fantasy,  Mystery, Charisma...


Bit hippy or whimsical.  Or a flight of fancy.   Like plenty of names.  Could be spelt Mystique of course but then you know Holly might be Hollie too and it's a common noun too.  This woman is not the first to call her daughter Mistique or Mystique and so what if she was anyway?

Im with Gudrun - I dont mind it - although prefer spelling Mystique but thats not a big deal.


I know someone called Charisma and have also heard of Harmony's - I dont mind those names either.

Fantasy I would draw the line on - more because of the sexual image I guess - I know fantasies arent neccesarily sexual fantasies but my mind does go there with it.

I thought x-men immediately, but it looks wrong to me (spelling wise) isn't it usually spelt Mystique?
