I’ve liked [name]Keir[/name] for a while, but I don’t think I’ve ever posted about it, and now I’m really curious to see what other people think about it. Thoughts on [name]Keir[/name] for a boy?

I was once informed by an Arab friend that this is the Persian word for penis - and a crude slang word at that.

I had absolutely no idea! That’s really unfortunate. Thanks for letting me know!

I love the name [name]Keir[/name] and don’t see that slang association being an issue. No one would know that. In Farsi, keer means penis, according to Google. Again, that shouldn’t take away from the name or keep you from using it, unless you’ll be spending a lot of time with Persian speaking individuals. It has strong roots as an Irish name, and that’s what people will recognize it for.

I love keir. So does my oh, we won’t use it as he has a family member with the name, otherwise I’d be tempted.
