We named our baby boy Adler! We really liked the nature/outdoorsy meaning of it and that it isn't very popular. Last names as first names are cool too!

With his sister Irene. Other than that, I really like this name!

I typically don't gravitate towards surname names but I really do love Adler. I love the meaning of eagle, it sounds strong and handsome, and it sounds preppy-cool + alternative-cool at the same time. I definitely like it for a boy only.

I agree. I think it would fit better for a girl. Addie as a nickname is cute.

I've loved this name for years. I love its nature connection and er ending. I'd rather use it for a girl though. So I can call her Addie :)
