Last Name Issue

I really like the name Harper, however, our last name is Prior and I feel like there are too many 'r' sounds in Harper Prior. A middle name will break it up but there will be very few times that a middle name will be used.
So, do you think Harper Prior sounds OK?

  • Not a huge fan or Harper and I think it sounds kind of funny with Prior.




  • Thanks for the input! I think my husband and I will just keep it on the maybe list for now. Hopefully we will think of other girl names :)
  • I don't like the way it sounds together.
  • You can't say it fIve times fast.

    Harper is just. ...okay.

  • I hate to say it but the sounds of harper and prior are very similar. Personally, i'd go with a first name with more sylables than the last name in this case.
  • Harper is bad in general, so do yourself a favor and move on.

  • Nope. Too many 'R' sounds. HATE the name Harper. 

    Find another name.

  • I don't think it sounds good at all. I feel your pain. There are so many lovely names that just do NOT go well with our last name. You will find the right one.

    Ditto this. A lot of great names are rhymey with my last name, including one of my very faves, Susannah. It sucks
  • I wasn't a fan when my best friend wanted to name her daughter Harper (last name sounds like Rocker). It's a lot of R sounds too but now at five months old, it's her name and that's that. If you love it, go for it. If you aren't sure though, keep looking!
