DH loves this name because it was his grandma's name...i go back and forth with it. Im fine with it as a MN, but as a first? i guess all the older names are popular now...sophia, violet, grace...but what about gloria?
Gloria reminds me of Gloria Estefan and nothing else comes to mind. I don't like or dislike this name. Just not very common, I guess.
It's a fine middle name. Don't make it a first name.
Just FYI, it's the title of a terrible song from the early '80s by Laura Branigan. Thanks for putting that in my head. ugh. :)
It reminds me of people my mom's age (late 50). Similar in time period to Barbara, Brenda, Diane etc.
It was a pretty popular name in the 1920's-1960's, so it's not catching on because it isn't "old lady" enough. Whereas 'Violet' peaked in popularity in 1900-1920 making it very "old lady".
Blondangel:It reminds me of people my mom's age (late 50). Similar in time period to Barbara, Brenda, Diane etc.
I agree with this.
If I were you, I would just use it as a mn.
Allie30:I think it's pretty and unusual, and Glory is a great nickname!
For the love of all that is holy do NOT call her Glory if you go with this name.
That's a horrible NN..
