Cute! Crushing on it so much right now. What mn could go with it though?

I knew a Feather in junior high! It was a hard name for her classmates to accept at first, but we soon got over the novelty. She was a neat person.

It's my name. I have always loved that I've yet to meet another one. Because it's different, there will always be those that tease, but if it's not for a name it will be something else. At least people have always been honest with my name. If they say they like it, i think they genuinely do, where as if it's something more common (like Charlotte) people will say they like it or it's cute, whether they actually like it or not. I would agree with other commentators, it does seem like it would fit more a shy girl, not the in your face law student like myself, but over all I like having it

Sounds like a fanciful children's book character name. Cute but just not appropriate for real life...you're naming a human being. The name must suit for all seasons of life: baby, child, teen, young (wo)man, middle aged, and elderly.

While I wouldn't use Feather myself, it doesn't sound like a stripper to me...more like a relative of the Phoenixes (River, Summer, Leaf-now-Joaquin, etc.); i.e., very '60s-hippie-ish.

I think Feather is a very sweet and pretty name. I also feel like calling it a "stripper name" just seems like an easy way to insult a name you don't like.

Strippers are named Kitty ( Something that quintessentially British for Katherine which means Pure), Bunny ( Nickname for Elizabeth), Lilly, Lola, Ruby, Candence, Tiffany (Very 80's) and Stephanie ( Very 80's). I even have heard of Transvestites named all the above names. In that type of environment, names are limitless from regular to unusual. So it hard to classify stripper names into one category.

How? I think it's kind of cute, but reminds me of a cat :)

I think if Apple, Birdie, Cricket, Fig, Elm, Hyacinth, Peony, and Prunella (plum) and many others can be used, why not Feather. Its light, airy in sound AND meaning. I could see it on a shy, little, bookish, or even a girly-girl. I think its cute.

I don't see anything wrong with this name. I mean, I don't think Feather is something I'd want to give to my child, but I don't see how the name lacks "substance."

I don't know, it's no worse than Heather to me....

Feather is not a name of substance and every woman deserves a name of substance. It also sounds like a stripper.
