My sister and I thought of this beautiful word name when we were kids and everyone else thought it was too outlandish. As adults, we still think it would be lovely on a baby girl.

Susette Says:


C'mon people...Maple trees are beautiful, maple syryp is sweet. But the name Maple for a little girl is neither beautiful nor sweet. Sounds like a hillbilly name.

Carolinekalmes Says:


There's something I really like about this name, but I don't think I could actually ever name a child Maple. At most a middle name, but likely more an animal name for me.

Rebecca Says:


That's my daughter and it fits her perfectly. Not everyone's taste I guess.

Kind of cute. It sounds similar to Mabel, and is also a nature name.

Dalmatians101 Says:


I mean, its pretty but I can't imagine someone with that name. Imagine at her mariage ''Maple would you take Steven's hand?'' Doesn't sound that good after all.

autumnreverie Says:


I think of the beautiful trees and yummy syrup.

Haids1987 Says:


I kind of like this. My hometown is Maple Valley, though, so it's kind of a nod to home.

My neighbours have a cat named Maple. They also have Genie, Mysty, caramello, Minx, Scoobi and a couple more whose names I forget; however, they all have names beginning with M.

Yeah, better for a puppy than a human

Someone named their daughter Maple Darling? That's so sweet it makes my teeth hurt...cringeworthy

esita Says:


I named my beautiful Golden retriever puppy Maple. It is perfect for her.

clairelaliberte Says:


This would be a cool middle name as I grew up on Maple Street.

Bobcat108 Says:


Some word names work as names, but IMO this one doesn't, & the look of it isn't feminine to me at all. And the teasing potential is way too high between the association w/syrup & the "ape" sound in maple.

mabespark Says:


I think that this is really a very pretty and unique name - more modern and trendy-sounding than Mabel, (my name c:) but not overly kre8tive or OTT.

CocoWhite Says:


When I hear Maple, I don't think tree; I think syrup.
