    I sort of like Fife and would prefer it on a boy. I like its softer and mystical feel. Reminds me of nature and the fae.
    My concern is how similar Fife and Strife sound.

    Fife Eoin
    Fife John
    Fife Prosper
    Fife Avery

    I think of Don Knotts as Barney Fife on "The Andy Griffith Show." Considering he was decades before my time, I'm surprised how strong the association is in my mind. Fife feels flighty and maybe not too bright, but basically good natured. That's got to come from Barney. I do like Fife's musical meaning, and I like how short and sharp it sounds, despite having soft sounds. Meeting a RL Fife would probably make me like the name more. Right now, I prefer Fifer/Pfeiffer.

    I see it as more masculine.

    "Fife" is a low-lying region in Scotland. It's a military flute. As a name it's got a nice sound, though perhaps some unfortunate rhymes (and, to cruel adolescent boys, it's rather close to Fifi).

    I don't hate it. It's unique but pleasant. Reminds me of Piper. In fact, Fifer is interesting as well.

    Might be hard for some people to pronounce though.
