    Default Popularity concern

    So we named out daughter Harper in 2008 and, as most of you probably know, the name is recently showing up everywhere! I honestly had not heard of anyone naming their kids Harper before we did (besides Harper Lee, of course)...

    Anyway....if this next one is a boy, I want to try to pick something that's not gonna end up in the headlines

    What do you think of these names:
    Booker
    Miller
    Enzo
    Milo

    Thanks!

    I don't hear Harper that often actually, and its such a cute name.

    I always refer to the ssa baby name thing for popularity stuff. Booker is not the top 1000 names at all, and I really like that one. I don't care much for Miller as a first name. Enzo has never made it above the top 400, and is pretty cute too. Milo is not super common either, but it seems like I hear it more lately, and I don't like it as well as Booker or Enzo. Good luck!

    I feel like those names could be up and coming/gaining in popularity. with the exception of Miller, I have heard people talk of naming their kids those names. With Miller, I had 2 friends in HS with that as a MN

    I like them all but Miller is my least favorite. I think I like Milo and Enzo the best.

    I also don't hear that many Harper's either, I think it's a lovely name!

    Thanks ladies! Ya, I think I'm just starting to hear the celebrities with Harper (Tiffiani-Amber Theissen, Neil-Patrick Harris, now the Beckhams!) so I'm waiting for that wave! Hopefully I'm just being neurotic!

    As far as Booker - it was one of my favs until I thought I heard my mom say "booger" when she said it...

    ooh, yeah, Booger is not good, but Booker is so cute. My ds is Tucker, and well, we did not really think about it rhyming with a swear word until later. Last year he was rhyming things and said the unmentionable word with his name, "I'm Tucker the ____", I was so sad to explain that the word was the worst swear word, and he was sad too. But no one at school etc has called him that yet. (1st grade)

    I've never heard of Harper before, if it makes you feel any better! I, like you, try and name my children names that you won't hear all over the place (see my siggy). I liked Booker at first, but since it rhymes with the name of a streetwalker you might want to re-think it... only because kids can be pretty creative and mean when it comes to name calling. I really like Milo... very different and cute IMHO!
