    Greer?

    I've never really considered the name Greer before, but I've seen it cropping up a fair amount lately, and it's making me wonder about adding it to my list.

    It definitely fits into my 'unusual, trendy, boyish/unisex" style, and it also holds a really cool Old-Hollywood connection (via Greer Garson) which I'm definitely drawn to.

    In 2016, Greer was only used on 98 baby girls (around the same popularity level as Lakelyn, Irelynn, Brittney and Gaia), so it's still relatively unheard of. Popularity doesn't bother me too much, but I do find myself drawn to names more easily if they're less popular.

    What are your thoughts on the name Greer? Do you think it's usable?

    It reminds me of gears and grind and grit. I think it's just so...mechanical. I strongly dislike it.

    I LOVE Greer. To me it's sleek, sophisticated and classic Hollywood. My husband thinks it sounds harsh and ugly. I think it's one of those names you love or hate.
