Heather is a perfectly good name! It isn't misspelt and it's fairly traditional; what's not to like?? Personally, I feel that ranks it far above made up/smoosh/surname names.
I hate the term 'dated'.
Say Caitlin, for example. Like Heather it's not a name I'd pick myself but it has all the qualities I respect in a name and is ridiculously popular at the moment, like Heather was in the 70's/80's. But that isn't going to detract from it's appeal in ten years time; it's still going to be the same nice name despite it's former popularity.~Boys~

Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

I've seen Heather used a lot as an example of a dated name, like "oh ____ isn't dated, at least it's not super dated like Heather" but I think it would stop seeming dated if people started using it again. Abigail seemed dated until daring parents revived it and now you'd picture it on a little girl sooner than an old woman. I think Heather has a really pretty sound and the nature connection is appealing, go for it!Felicity ~ Calista ~ Claudia ~ Beatrice "Betty" ~ Carlotta ~ Millie ~ Cora ~ Audrey ~ Violet

Heather that was even remotely nice so personally I think it is an ugly name through and through.
