Pepper - fn/mn?

So I know that [name]Pepper[/name] is not going to be a lot of people’s style but I like it and my husband didn’t think it was crazy! But I don’t think I could ever use it as fn but probably would consider it for mn.

My name is [name]Jennifer[/name] [name]Ann[/name] and there was a cartoon character when I was in high school called [name]Pepper[/name] [name]Ann[/name] which was my nickname for awhile, so there is some significance there. I also like [name]Pepper[/name] Potts from Iron [name]Man[/name] but don’t think I would name a kid after her. My husband also suggested changing it to [name]Piper[/name] but then referred to the [name]George[/name] Lopez stand up comedy routine about kids named [name]Dakota[/name] and [name]Piper[/name] :expressionless:

I had a pet chicken named [name]Pepper[/name] when I was little…it does have a pet name/animal name vibe like something like [name]Cricket[/name] or [name]Honey[/name]…I do love names like that, but wouldn’t saddle a person with one. Of course a girl with beauty, style & guts to spare could pull off something like [name]Pepper[/name], but there’s no telling if your daughter might be shy. I think [name]Pepper[/name] in the middle is cute, but I also think plenty of more classic first name choices could easily nickname their way to [name]Pepper[/name].

Any thing -bell, -belle, -bella, get it??? Like [name]Annabell[/name] [name]Pepper[/name]. [name]Bellamy[/name], [name]Bellatrix[/name] or just [name]Belle[/name]

Anything with a P. It could also work as a nickname for any unrelated first name. Especially classic names like [name]Elizabeth[/name] or [name]Mary[/name] I feel could carry any nickname at all.

Really, it wouldn’t be so awful to have a name like [name]Pepper[/name], [name]Clover[/name], ect,

[name]Pepper[/name] Potts real first name is [name]Virginia[/name] :wink: [name]Pepper[/name] is a nickname.

I like the sound of [name]Pepper[/name]! It’s definitely a spunky out of the ordinary name that will take a certain type of personality to carry it. My kitten’s name is [name]Pippa[/name] (after [name]Pippa[/name] Middleton… we got her during the [name]London[/name] Olympics last year). I do prefer [name]Pippa[/name] because it is a more recognizable name.

I am crazy over [name]Pepper[/name]. And I do wonder if that makes me literately, crazy. ha!

[name]Pepper[/name] Potts is the inspiration for me because hearing it on her just makes it seem more feasible (even though she is a comic character…lol).

I like [name]Pepper[/name] for [name]Penelope[/name], I think that’s the easiest transition. But I confess if I had a [name]Penelope[/name], I would be naming her that [name]JUST[/name] to get [name]Pepper[/name]. You could also go for the more frilly [name]Persephone[/name]. I don’t think it really works from [name]Philippa[/name] (although [name]Pippa[/name] does…another name crush of mine!)

I did not know that the comic character’s name was [name]Virginia[/name]…how in the world did they get [name]Pepper[/name] out of that?!

No way, a fellow [name]Pepper[/name]-lover! It has been among my favorite names for a few years, and I too was shocked when my husband called it cute. I’m a bit eccentric, so I would have absolutely no reservations with using [name]Pepper[/name] as a first name. There is an orphan girl in the movie [name]Annie[/name] named [name]Pepper[/name], and I grew up reading one of my mom’s childhood [name]Little[/name] [name]Golden[/name] Books about a girl named [name]Pepper[/name] ([u]here[/u]), so I view it as a legitimate name. When I mentioned it to my mom, though, her response was, “I would have to tell people that I have a granddaughter named [name]PEPPER[/name]?!” She still brings it up like it was the most traumatizing thing she has ever heard. Personally I like it as a first name with a summer-month middle name–[name]Pepper[/name] [name]June[/name], [name]Pepper[/name] [name]July[/name], or [name]Pepper[/name] [name]August[/name]–because it makes me think of summer night picnics (when I hear [name]Pepper[/name] I picture the vegetable, which is very picnicky :slight_smile: ). I think it would be a great name choice, and I see no reason to hide it in the middle if you and your husband both love it. It’s spunky, and not all that different from [name]Piper[/name], which is a widely-accepted name.

I love the name [name]Pepper[/name], but maybe you should consider giving her a name such as [name]Penelope[/name] and using [name]Pepper[/name] as a nickname! That way, when she gets older she could use her longer name if she wanted!

It’s from her surname :wink:

My dog’s name is [name]Pepper[/name]. I think that sums up my opinion :wink:

I really like nature names so instantly love it. But for the sake of tradition I would give her a very traditional first name and then use [name]Pepper[/name] as a middle name. Then I would always call her by her middle name.

[name]Madeline[/name] [name]Pepper[/name]

[name]Catherine[/name] [name]Pepper[/name]

[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Pepper[/name]

[name]Camille[/name] [name]Pepper[/name]

you get the idea…

I think [name]Pepper[/name] makes a nice nickname for something like [name]Penelope[/name] or [name]Penina[/name].
