Greer and Fifer

What do you think about these names?
Is [name]Greer[/name] too associated with [name]Brooke[/name] Shield’s child?
What do you think of [name]Fifer[/name]? (like [name]Piper[/name], but replace P’s with F’s)

Last name is [name]Woolf[/name]. (pronounced like [name]Wolf[/name].)
My other choice is [name]Charlotte[/name]. I think it’s lovely, but so does everyone. That’s the problem.

Here are some combos. Let me know what you think.
[name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Quinn[/name]
[name]Greer[/name] [name]Katherine[/name]
[name]Fifer[/name] [name]Claire[/name]

Others I have considered are [name]Susannah[/name], [name]Danika[/name], [name]Frances[/name], [name]Eleanor[/name], [name]Saskia[/name], [name]Vivian[/name], and [name]Thora[/name].

Interesting choices…

I didn’t even know [name]Brooke[/name] Shields had a daughter named [name]Greer[/name]. I like the name a lot. For some reason though, paired with your last name, it sounds like a fairy tale character to me. I don’t know if that’s good or bad to you. :roll:

I’m not at all a fan of [name]Fifer[/name]. Sounds like someone with a lisp trying to say [name]Piper[/name]. Also reminds me of [name]Fee[/name] Fie Fo Fum…

[name]Charlotte[/name] is pretty, but I agree with you – it’s also pretty popular.

I really love [name]Susannah[/name]. I’d say that’s your top name for me.

I don’t think [name]Greer[/name] is overly associated with [name]Brooke[/name] Shields’ child. I like the name but it may be a bit stern coupled with [name]Woolf[/name]. I’m actually a fan of [name]Fifer[/name] and think it leavens your last name nicely. I also love [name]Susannah[/name] and [name]Saskia[/name]. [name]Eleanor[/name] I’m afraid suffers from the same problem as [name]Charlotte[/name] – too much love!

[name]Hi[/name], I like [name]Fifer[/name] [name]Claire[/name]. [name]Fife[/name] is actually a Scottish place name so I guess you’ve added an “R” at the end. I’m not usually a fan of made up names but this has spunky vibe! [name]Brooke[/name] Shield’s spells her daughter’s name [name]Grier[/name] which is the spelling I prefer. [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Quinn[/name] is a lovely combination so don’t be afraid of its popularity if you like it. I love [name]Frances[/name] (so classic, so underused as a first name) and [name]Saskia[/name] (Dutch name that sounds exotic).

Thanks! Well, I definitely wouldn’t want my daughter to seem like a fairy tale character. (Not exactly the image I was going for. LOL)

Anyway, [name]Charlotte[/name] has always been a top contender, but I don’t know if I can really bring myself to use it since it seems to be quickly losing it’s appeal to me every time I see it in someone’s name list. :frowning: I suffer from a very common first name myself, so I would like to use something a little more on the rare side…

[name]Susannah[/name] is a new one I’m liking. I had such a huge list to start with, but so many of the names I love do not work with our last name. (sigh) “[name]Woolf[/name]” is our surname. If I have a boy, I would like to name him [name]Waylon[/name] [name]Daniel[/name].

I love names, but I just frustrate myself with girl names. It seem like I can brainstorm forever and only come up with dumb-sounding choices. ([name]Fe[/name], fi, fo, fum)…haha. I still like [name]Fifer[/name], though. It’s good to hear everyone’s opinions.

Any other thoughts?..

[name]Susannah[/name] [name]Woolf[/name] is a great combo! I’m not sure about [name]Waylon[/name] [name]Woolf[/name] (it sounds like “wailing wolf”!!!). Since your last name is one syllable, I think it would be best to have a two or three syllable first name. Here are some girls names you might consider.

[name]Sabrina[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Yolanda[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Simona[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Ramona[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Isadora[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Hadley[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Delilah[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Cecily[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Estella[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Felicity[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Ivy[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Juliana[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Matilda[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Clarissa[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Marguerite[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Antonia[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Ophelia[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Georgiana[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Malvina[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Lavinia[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Regina[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Guinevere[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Adela[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Leonie[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Daphne[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Chauncey[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Abigail[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Madeleine[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Vivian[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Cordelia[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Angelica[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Miranda[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]
[name]Augusta[/name] [name]Woolf[/name]

If you want to use [name]Fifer[/name], I would suggest spelling it like the surname [name]Pfeiffer[/name]. [name]Fifer[/name] looks ridiculous; sorry! I am also not a fan of [name]Waylon[/name]; as a pp mentioned, it sounds like “wailin’ wolf” with your last name. I also don’t think [name]Charlotte[/name] is too popular, I haven’t met any kids with this name, and it’s only like #68 on the name lists. [name]Charlotte[/name] [name]Woolf[/name] sounds lovely!!

I like [name]Greer[/name] a lot, and like a lot of people I had no idea [name]Brooke[/name] Shields’ baby was named [name]Grier[/name]. I had heard about the postpartum and [name]Tom[/name] [name]Cruise[/name] thing, but never heard the actual baby’s name. So I think it’s safe. [name]Greer[/name] is a wonderful choice.

I like [name]Charlotte[/name] as well, but I can see what you mean by popularity. Also I think it’s only going to continue going up for the next few years, and probably rather quickly at that.

The other names of your list I love are [name]Susannah[/name] and [name]Eleanor[/name]. In fact I love them both more than [name]Charlotte[/name] to begin with.

[name]Susannah[/name] [name]Woolf[/name] or [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Woolf[/name] both sound lovely.

I really strongly dislike both [name]Greer[/name] and [name]Fifer[/name] (neither sound remotely feminine, and follow the surname trend of which I am not at all a fan of) but the rest of the names on your list are lovely. [name]Greer[/name] and [name]Fifer[/name] seem very out of place next to such classic, feminine names. I especially love [name]Charlotte[/name], [name]Susannah[/name], [name]Saskia[/name], [name]Vivian[/name], [name]Frances[/name], and [name]Eleanor[/name].
