Does Peregrine Age Well?

Words cannot explain how much I love the name [name_m]Peregrine[/name_m] nn [name_u]Perry[/name_u], but I came across a problem and it troubles me greatly…Does it age well?

Can you imagine a child, a teenager, an adult, and a senior bearing the name?

Is the name timeless enough to carry throughout the years or will the name be overused and become a dying trend like Harper, Amelia, and Isabella?

So many questions, help!!


It would be weird to other kids but it sounds like one of those names everyone would get used to and people will probably will just end up calling him [name_u]Perry[/name_u] so it works out either way.

[name_u]Perry[/name_u] is great for when he is young and [name_m]Peregrine[/name_m] will suit him as he becomes more mature. So it’s a good combination

I think this is a name that gets better with time, and is further aided by a youthful nickname. [name_u]Perry[/name_u] grows into [name_m]Peregrine[/name_m] very naturally to me.

Like [name_m]Percival[/name_m], it’s an interesting name and I’d be glad to meet someone with that name! But it is hard for me to picture on anyone at all. I’m sure that because I live in the US. [name_u]Perry[/name_u] makes it more wearable for sure but I dislike that name. I do like [name_m]Pip[/name_m]!

I love this! It was on our shortlist for middle names for our boy but when the time came we weren’t quite brave enough. I do think it ages well on an individual and I don’t think it’s common enough at present to be seen as trendy.
