    I also first thought it was a surname, and then I thought it was more masculine than feminine, but each to his/her own!

    Default Harper - Boy or Girl?

    Hi,

    I'm due 14th Feb, 2006 and we're having our first baby girl after two beautiful sons! Harper-Lane is the name we have chosen. I like unisex names and my favourite novel of all time is "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee, however I believe Harper is her middle name and Nelle is her first name. Either way I think it's great!

    I know my mother in-law is going to hate it, her name is Elizabeth Mary Louise (a mouth full isn't it) and she only suggest names like Rose, Daisy or Ivy .

    I really love the name Harper. My boys names are Frazer and Clayton. Good luck to everyone with the name game.

    Just thought I would add my two cents....

    Harper is a nice name that can be used for both a boy or a girl. It isn't easily shortened if you don't like that happening (Hunter is another that comes to mind & also unisex) too.

    Also, a newsreader from Brisbane, Jillian Whiting, called her baby girl Harper (I think she got it from the Mockingbird book too) just this year.

    Good luck with your choice and with your new bub boy or girl!!

    I know both a little boy and a girl with this name, and I prefer it on a girl!

    I once thought the name was suited to a boy but I have a friend who called her daughter Harper, a gorgeous girl, the name suits her.

    Ive just been searching thru names as we have just had our 3rd child.
    We named her Harper, and our 2 boys are Oliver and Elliot. I registered on this board just to respond to your post.
    Great names both of them !

    I tend to lean towards it being more a boy's name, but i also can see it as a unisex name.

    It's my DS's middle name!

    I think due to the fact that this thread is well over 3 years old, I'm sure the OP has decided the name of their baby by now. I'll close this thread
