    Thank you for your opinion.
    However, what if this person is a 16 year old girl at secondary school?
    Tacky or no?

    It could be tacky, could be nice, depends on the necklace! I tend to avoid personalised stuff though because when you don't want it any more it's hard to sell on ebay or whatever

    Also my name is too unusual to ever be found on anything in shops :emo:

    If you like it, wear it! I used to as a child, and I wouldn’t want to now. But it’s personal preference.

    It can be considered tacky, but it shouldn’t matter if you like it.

    I wore them when I was younger - they were the in thing, but they are usually found on chavvy people and are a little tacky. No-one needs to know your name at first glance. :lol:

    Depends on the necklace. In general I'm not a fan but I've seen some dainty/subtle ones that could look quite nice.

    That said, if you like them it shouldn't matter what other people think. Wear what you enjoy.

    a bit to obvious.

    Symbolism is better - especially if it is a present.

    So if you like a girl and you want to get her some jewelry that represents her(and you), her name is very blunt... jewelery in the shape of something that brings back a fond memory, or a running joke between you, etc, is much better. That way to others its just a normal item, but to you two it has meaning.

    I think they look a little tacky but it doesn't matter what other people think, only matters if the wearer likes it I've never seen the appeal in wearing a necklace with my name on it. I wouldn't get a tattoo of my name, so why would I wear a necklace with my name on it?

    Each to their own though
