Gretchen vs. What style vs. of name is it?

Hi. I really want to know what impression you get from the girl’s name Gretchen. Please be honest but not too harsh. Just because it is not to your personal taste doesn’t mean it can’t be cute on another person’s child. Please comment, it is appreciated. Thanks~ Gin

I get a very Germanic vibe from it. A little bit vintage. It’s a nice name.

My honest opinion is that it is a really nice name. It seems like a name that could fit many different personalities, which I like.

I’ve like every Gretchen I’ve ever known... all two of them. Both had German heritage. I also get a very Germanic image. It will fit a child and an adult, so if you love, it, go for it.

It sounds a little harsh to me. I like Gretal.

I personally like the name Gretchen. It still feels very European to me, and I imagine it on a little blonde girl. I would imagine a Gretchen to be sharp (I mean this as witty and intelligent), practical, candid, and not bratty.

Thanks for the feedback so far everyone. I do also like Greta but find it a little bit cutesy and I do prefer Gretchen.

I don’t think it’s a bad name, per se, definitely better than some names I see on here (Harper, Mykynzee, etc), but I see an old granny who loves the cook and clean. A gentle granny, but still a granny. I think this name has to let a few more years pass before making a comeback.

I’m a Malcolm in the Middle freak, so every time I hear the name Gretchen, I think of a bubbly, German, around fifty year old woman who loves to clean and is extremely generous and nice.
