Pop Culture References for the name Whisper


cheesy-biscuit Says:


I do not agree at all. I don't like the name but most societies no longer silence women.

Selkit Says:


I like the sound, but I agree with alyssum that the association is not a good one to saddle your daughter with. Society already tells girls and women that their words mean nothing and should be silenced. Vesper would be a better option for a similar-sounding name with a better meaning.

alyssum Says:


It's not a name with a particularly pretty or encouraging or empowering image, which makes it kind of an oddball among word names. To me, it feels more like the equivalent of naming your daughter "Be quiet," or worse, "Shut up."

Whisper is the perfect younger sister to older brother Whisker. /s

Hylian Wizard Says:


I like most word names, but it depends on the word. Whisper just sounds like a really random thing to call your kid.
