Best name in the world!

I've loved this name since the day I was given To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, to read at thirteen! I knew one day when I had a child they would be named Harper. That day arrived 30th January, 2006, our daughter was born. Her name, HARPER!

I have to agree with the "definition". I think of Harper as a male name though I know Harper Lee is a woman and recently TWO people we know have had baby girls and named them Harper.
Love this name

Harper is my daughters name and I love it, it was my grandma's great great Aunt's surname.

After 7 1/2 long months of searching for the perfect name for our perfect little girl we found Harper and it fits her perfect. It is beautiful and unique without being strange and obvious.

..yet I think it will be; there are many celebrities naming both boys and girls this name. I want a unique name, and at least there won't be many Harpers in my baby's class. We are naming her Harper Leigh, a variation of "Lee" like author and Leighis her grandma's middle name. I also though Harper Layne sounded nice. I just hope kids don't call her "Harpy".

I am considering this for a second middle name because this book has influenced me so much!!

I like Harper a lot better for a boy. It's much more unique as a boys name. There are too many girl Harpers. Oh well it's cute either way. Very nice name. (:

I love the name Harper. I named my son Harper 15 years ago. He is one of a quadruplet, and I picked out different names for the 2 other boys and the girl. Something that you don't hear of everyday.
