Thread: Thoughts on the name Harper ?
June 10th, 2013 11:46 PM #6
I quite like Harper, for both genders. I think it is fine on a girl, rabidly popular, in fact. It's quickly edging up on the top 10--it ranked number 24 last year. I can easily see it replacing Madison for the unisex name for the 2010s in the top 10 in the US. Harper Rebecca is lovely, though--sweet, and refreshing as far as Harper combos go. As trendy as it gets, I think I'll always like it. It has a wonderful, sweet, literary feel about it. I agree with the pp, though--it doesn't really go with Athena, Phoebe, Lola, Violet, or Eloise. They're all unmistakeably feminine, and much less trendy than Harper is. Still, I love it as a name.Lise

A few years ago, Harper Renee was my absolute favorite name. But then Harper started popping up everywhere, and it sort of lost its appeal. I like Harper, but I'm leaning towards it as a boys name in the middle.
If it's your favorite name, then go for it. But be warned that it's skyrocketing in popularity.-Athena
