Hopper: Am I Crazy?

Hello Berries!

It seems crazy to me, but I’ve really been liking the name [name_m]Hopper[/name_m] lately! I honestly don’t know why or what it is about the name, but it’s just very intriguing to me. [name_f]Do[/name_f] you think it’s usable? It’s definitely more of a guilty pleasure for me, but I could see it getting some use in the future with the Stranger Things connection. [name_m]Sean[/name_m] [name_m]Penn[/name_m] and [name_u]Robin[/name_u] [name_m]Wright[/name_m] used the name for their son, so it has some celebrity cred, and it seems similar to names like [name_m]Wilder[/name_m], [name_m]Booker[/name_m], [name_u]Hunter[/name_u], etc.

Any thoughts?

I do quite like how it sounds, and I definitely think it’s wearable.
Personally I wouldn’t, I know too many people with it as a surname and it makes me think of the ‘villain’ grasshopper in A Bug’s Life. But I’m not sure either of those two things are enough to rule it out for someone else!
It also makes me think of the [name_m]Sheriff[/name_m] in Strange Things (Netflix) as that’s his surname but that is what he mostly goes by.

Maybe for a pet.

I think there is too much teasing potential for a boy to endure.

It’s a bit unusual but nothing too bad. It’s wearable in my opinion.

It reminds me of the grasshopper from bugs life that was named hopper so I don’t like it.

Im all for out there’s choices but’s something about [name_m]Hopper[/name_m] as a first name feels off, like it wouldn’t age well overall. I’d have to say rethink it.

Maybe as a nickname based off an H first name or as a middle name you could call him by sometimes but I’d avoid it as a first name pick.

[name_m]Just[/name_m] as wearable as Rolling and Strider. So if you consider those wearable, yes.

It’s a bit rabbity. Maybe save it for a middle, where the assumption will be family name.

Or go for one of the occupation type names that follow the same sound pattern, with a similar perky feel. [name_m]Fletcher[/name_m], [name_m]Baxter[/name_m], [name_m]Becker[/name_m], [name_u]Chandler[/name_u], [name_m]Cooper[/name_m], [name_m]Tanner[/name_m], [name_m]Fisher[/name_m], [name_m]Jasper[/name_m], [name_m]Keller[/name_m], [name_m]Meyer[/name_m], [name_u]Parker[/name_u], [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u], [name_m]Skipper[/name_m], [name_m]Webster[/name_m].

To me it sounds like a British person saying [name_u]Harper[/name_u] which is so common lately for girls.
You’re not crazy at all but I think maybe you could do better along the same lines of a unique surname vibe.

I like it! I’m not sure it completely stands on its own. But, I like it.

I actually really like [name_m]Hopper[/name_m].

I’m into it.

I love it! It’s a handsome & unusual occupational name. I was happy when [name_m]Sean[/name_m] & [name_u]Robin[/name_u] [name_m]Wright[/name_m] [name_m]Penn[/name_m] chose it for their son. Plus, I love [name_u]Harper[/name_u] for a boy & [name_m]Hopper[/name_m] sounds similar

It does nothing for me. I picture a bunny.

I personally don’t like it for a given name. I just don’t think it would age well, too much teasing potential, too likely that he’ll hate his name later, too unusual in a cutesy way for my taste.
It sounds more like an endearing nickname to me, and I think you could totally use it that way.
For example, my grandma calls me “[name_m]Little[/name_m] Chicken” all the time (I have no idea why), and it has nothing whatsoever to do with my actual name.
You could call him [name_m]Hopper[/name_m] no matter what you name him, I think that’s pretty cute (especially while you’re feeling him hop around in your tummy!) Then you could still call him the name you love, while giving him a name that’s more wearable.

I think it’s silly. Could be a cute pet name though.

I think it would work well as a middle name. I quite like it.

I don’t think [name_m]Hopper[/name_m] is silly or crazy at all, and I have considered it for my own list in the past; however the only thing that’s drawn me back is that whilst I don’t think it’s mad, I do think it is a bit adventurous as a first name (I also generally don’t like surnames as firsts and [name_m]Hopper[/name_m] feels more like a surname to me) - I’d place [name_m]Hopper[/name_m] in the middle name spot instead. But, as I said before it’s not completely out of the question. It’s fun to say.
