Resurrecting this thread as I had a boy all those years ago and now I'm expecting again we are considering Roxanne once again if baby is a girl! Our son is Ruari so would be nice to have another 'R' name. We'd likely call her Roxy/Roxie but her full name would be Roxanne. Interested in people's opinions on the name now?

I love the name Roxanne with the nickname of Roxy. I have an aunt named Roxanne and growing up she was called Roxy but now she goes by Renee... but I seriously love Roxanne.

It's not my cup of tea and it does make me think Prostitute/Red Light District but it's only because I'm an adult, I don't think her peers will have the same thought when they hear her name.

I want to like Roxy but it's my dad's dogs name so that's my only association unfortunately.

If you like it go for it!

It does sound like a stripper name to me, BUT... as others have said, I don't think children of her generation are necessarily going to have the same thoughts. I think it could actually be a cute sounding name that doesn't need to remind people of red light districts. Maybe your daughter will help 'redefine' the name

I really like it, but I hear the song too...I doubt her peers would think that though.

My given name is Amber which is often given as stipper name, never had an issue with it and I know lots of Ambers.

ETA, on a list of 45 most popular stripper names, Amber is #3, Roxy/Roxanne is #29. LOL

I found the list....Crystal and Tiffany take the top spots! Sorry OP got a little sidetracked on your thread. I only flicked through the top 20 and didn't see Roxanne!

It was #29, LOL!

Probably my fault for the derail. Point being though, just because people think that kind of thing doesn't make it a bad name, like mine, lol!

Wow! I'd never have associated Amber with that sort of thing! But like some others the sting song does pop into my head with Roxanne however the only real life Roxy I know is a very attractive russian girl and I've never really thought of stripper when I see her!
