i agree!!! Tiger on a boy, I think Tiger Woods (not good). Tiger on a girl, I think of Tiger Ann Parker. Pair it with a feminine middle and I think it works just fine. (Tiger Elizabeth, Tiger Beatrice, Tiger Annabel, Tiger Bellamy, Tiger Ruby, Tiger Jean, Tiger Blythe).

I think this should, along with Lion and Bear, just be a nickname.

Ana Says:


I really like Tiger for a girl. It reminds me of one of my favorite literary characters as a kid, Tiger from "My Louisiana Sky"
