It seems that [name]Piper[/name] isn’t well loved here on Nameberry. I get why some people don’t like it- it’s a surname, an occupational name etc. But for me, it’s a nature name. We are a big beach family, so [name]Piper[/name] is on my list because it reminds me of the adorable little Sandpipers that scurry along the shore at the beach. They remind me of where we live (we are sandwiched by the ocean on one side and the bay on the other) of our beach wedding, and our annual beach vacations with our 2 little boys.
But I do realize that not everyone is going to envision the cute little bird instead of a man playing the bag pipes, so I guess that’s why I can’t commit to the name just yet.
