It's a bit pointy

Catgirlmri Says:


I actually really like Arrow, for a girl as well as a boy (is that just me?). However, naming anyone Arrow outside of dogs and books doesn't really appeal to me.

paulapuddephatt Says:


I agree. 😃

irishdancer428 Says:


Ireland has Aero as well. They are really good chocolate bars, but maybe not so good as a name...

RoddyThlayli Says:


Canada has Aero, too.

paulapuddephatt Says:


Aero is a brand of chocolate bars and related products, at least here in the UK. I would love it as a boys' name otherwise.

hly478 Says:


I've seen an 'Aero', which I thought was nice alternative spelling, but has a different meaning. Boy name.

MelanieCora Says:


I just think of Oliver Queen, haha!

paulapuddephatt Says:


This was our canary's name. He was a boy, but I like this name on either gender. We didn't know it was a real name, when we used it for our pet, but it's awesome to see it being used, and gaining popularity.

I've met an Arrow, and it works. Strong, cool name. Go for it.

stella2007 Says:


Really, really love this name. Although an arrow is very powerful this name still sounds of soft and usable as a boys name.
