Name for today- April 24th


Harper is a boys name. (and a girls too)

A Harp is a musical instrument that is played especially in Ireland.

Harper Lee wrote “To kill a mockingbird.”

Ben Harper- American Musician.

Variants/Nicknames: Harpar.

Comments on Harper:

I recently heard of little girls named Harper. With all the pretty, feminine names out there, why would you name your daughter Harper? It sounds manly to me. Sorry to people with daughters named Harper.

I love To Kill a Mockingbird, possibly one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century but the name Harper is a little harsh. Her real name is Nell Harper Lee. Harper is also the name of one of the main characters from Angels in America by Tony Kushner. I say give the child whatever name you like and just nickname her Scout.

So much nicer for a boy than a girl I think.

Last night on Grey’s Anatomy there was an award mentioned, Harper Avery I really like this for a boy. What do you think?

Also Derek has been with Rose and I have really started to love Rose for its simplicity, romantic and oldish feel. What do you think of plain Rose?

In the novel I am reading the Mother is Nuala I really like this, the main character is Millie, her sister is Oona but several times they have written Orla when they meant Oona!

Which do you prefer Nuala, Oona or Orla?
