WDYT? I think it's kinda pretty, but I wonder if people would associate it with the Amityville movies. Oh and you can be honest... Im not pregnant.. I just want to know people's honest opinions on names.

Yeah, I really do think Amityville.

I hope no one was offended by that...

I also think of Amityville, but I still think it is pretty. My older sister's name was Amity.

I am deeply offended.

Seriously, I adore Amity! No, I don't think of Amityville. One of my "old names" was Brigid Amity but DF doesn't like either so it's off the list.

Use Amity! I love it! Make it a middle name if you're worried about Amityville.

Augh, they deleted one of my posts.
That was my bitterness towards it.

Amity has always been a guilty pleasure of mine, I love it. I knew a girl named Amity in college and she made me love the name. With the horror association I dont know if id ever use it though. Maybe as a middle name.

Amity means friendship or goodwill. It also has a really nice, pretty ring to it. I wouldn't let those movies deter you from a beautiful name!

But they'll be everyone's first association. Her entire life, she'll get "Like the Amityville movies?"

It is pretty, but I'd have to vote no on that reason.

It won't be everyone's first association. It's not mine and someone else said it wasn't theirs either. Some people will think of it and some won't. There's no scary movie associated with "Lauren" but I still get "Oh my cousin has that name" and "like Lauren Bacall?" and even "You spell it like Lauryn Hill, right?" (and I'm not exactly thrilled with any of those questions). If it's not that they write Laura or Laurel, like they can't hear me or something. There will always be someone who has an association with a name.

I thought Amityville... although I think Amity sounds nice, too many people would associate it with the movie..
