Have two children already: Miles and Abigail, could Pearl be the third? Is it in the same league? Too trendy/ dated?

It isn't the same "type" of name as your others, if that matters, though

I like it; I'm sure ruby 'felt' the same before it got popular. Go for it

I agree Layl - I have a relative who was named Ruby 20 years ago and people thought it was a ridiculous brassy old lady name then!

It's lovely, go for it

I have a pearl. she's 6 months old.didn't realise it was trendy. it's clearly a name that polarises opinions but it's whether you like it which counts.

I'm in the 'not liking' camp.

No, it's dreadful. Sorry. It also doesn't go with the other names.

It is lovely and if you like it, you should use it. It has a beautiful meaning too.

Pearl is 72, bleached blonde hair, permanent fag in mouth, voice as deep as Barry White's, works in a transit caf cooking breakfasts for the truckers, loves talking about the time she shagged the bass player from Eddie and the Pacemakers back in 1964.

I love it and it goes well with miles which is also old fashioned. It is different to Abigail but it doesn't matter

Personally I don't like it, it doesn't sound like a classy old lady name.
But regardless of my opinion of the actual name, I would be concerned it will date badly as it is very much 'in fashion' now, not one of those names that could nicely be pinned across a number of generations like your other DCs names.

How about:
Emma
Lydia
Julia
Susannah
Georgia
Leah

Lovely name and one which will be also good when she's a grown up. I imagine a grown up Pearl to be smart, stylish and kind.

It goes well enough with your other names. Nice.
