Girl name question

My husband and I are discussing names and we have a boys name set. However, with girls names we love Harper. However, our last name ends in er. Everyone we have told about the name Harper says no because of our last name ending in er as well. I was wondering what your opinions are.... yes or no?

Thanks!

I don't think it matters - there's a guy on American Idol this season called Phillip Philips!!!!

I wouldn't worry about it. Things like this are why we decided to stop telling people our name choices. It's totally your call as a parent, and I don't think you should let anyone talk you out of what you want.

Are you comfortable sharing your last name? Just curious what they sound like together.  I agree that you shouldn't let other people's opinon's sway your final decision but how a name sounds definitely should come into play with YOUR decision.  If YOU like how the name sounds than that's all that matters :)


On a side note, my husband and I have a little girl due in July and her name will be Harper, so personally I LOVE the name ;)

Thank you for the opinions!

Our last name is Wheeler. We haven't given much thought to middle names yet. So it would be Harper Wheeler.

I love the name Harper! It was one of my choices for a girl. That being said, we named our DS Liam Iams.  His middle name is Patrick.  I think Harper Wheeler sounds fine together!

Definitely ok! If it was Harper Carper (is that even a surname?? Lol) then it might be different but I think it's pretty .

I was always worried about silly names, for example our surname is Guy so Leia was out (lay a guy) and Chase was also a no-no!!

I think Harper Wheeler is adorable!  I was worried about our name because it doesn't roll of the tongue quite as easily as others (Olivia Annalee), but if you love it, that's what matters most.

Harper Wheeler is a cute name! I don't think it sounds strange together at all with the 'er' at the end of the first and last name. I say go for it! I really like it. like Julie said, this is one of the reasons we decided not to share our baby's name. Too many people with too many opinions! : ) Go with what you and DH want!
