Piper?? — The Bump
Baby Names

Piper??

I love this name but I am worried that its a bit too unusual. I live in the north east and you really never hear it used.
Is it too NN?

Re: Piper??

  • I personally like it, GP style. I would pair it w an elegant MN for balance.

  • I don't think it is unusual at all. In fact, it is getting common. I'm in the Midwest and know 3 little girls with this name. Plus it is the main character's name on Orange is the New Black and with the popularity of the show I think it will be used even more.

  • I like it. It's not unusual, IMO, but it's never going to be popular like Lily, Emily, or Olivia.

  • It's a guilty pleasure name for me. I probably like it best in the middle, but wouldn't side-eye its use by anyone as a first name.

  • I love this name! I do worry that it falls into the trying too hard category though like Ryder, Cash etc. It's definitely a GP for me.

  • Love, love, love Piper. It is definitely not uncommon.
  • Nms, but a nice name nonetheless. I like it for its spunk.

    Piper reminds me of not so nice things. Let's see, smoking pipes, plumbing, the pied piper, I suppose bag pipes are ok. It's just that none of these are what I'd want my daughters name associated with.

  • I like it.  I wouldn't have the guts to use it but I like it.

  • I've never liked this name. It seems so little-girly to me. Also, I wouldn't say it is uncommon.

  • I like it because it's spunky, not overly common and sounds good with our middle/last names. 
    It's at the very top of our list ... and will most likely be our 2nd daughter's name. :)

  • I only think of the pied piper, as PP said. I just can't like this name. I also think it's getting more common.

  • I like Piper.  Not terribly unusual, not terribly common.  It's a happy, spunky, girly name to me.

  • Definitely in my top 10.   Not made up, not too popular.  Makes me think of a sassy, smart, and spirited girl or woman.
