Opinions? My previous short list was:

Would be a sister for Erin.

Of your shortlist I think Piper is the nicest name, although all of them go well with Erin and are pretty I just prefer more unusual names.

I'm not keen, I much prefer Anna, Sarah and Alice. Piper does go well with Erin though.

I love it, there was a thread about it before and it was torn to shreds I think but I really really like it alot.

I love Piper as a name and know one in my DS's class. She's 8 and I think its more popular over here (US) maybe.

I love Piper. It's a bit of anti-American snobbery that gets MNers backs up about the name, I think.

Love it!

Really like it

I prefer all the other name son your short list. Piper to me is on a par with calling your child Plumber. It just sounds odd.

I don't mind Piper. Prefer Anna!

I wanted to call dd Piper but DP didn't like it sad

I like all the others ....but Piper awful.

MillieH30 Fri 13-Feb-15 23:18:49

Not keen at all. I much prefer the other names on your list - particularly Alice. Goes well with Erin.

LifeIsBetterInFlipFlops Fri 13-Feb-15 23:19:49

I've never heard of it as a name and would assume it was a boy's name or a surname.

OnceMoreAgainWithFeeling Fri 13-Feb-15 23:24:17

I like Piper a lot, feels like a pretty but not overly girly name. I also like Alice from your list. Anna is nice, but a little generic. Sarah is such an 'I couldn't be arsed to think of a name, this will do" to me. So bland.

Love it

Are you a fan of Charmed?

SauvignonSash Fri 13-Feb-15 23:31:07

Agree that Sarah, Anna and Alice are dull/bland.
Piper has a bit of attitude about it! Go for it.

SauvignonSash Fri 13-Feb-15 23:31:48

It goes great with Erin too.

Kasi03 Fri 13-Feb-15 23:32:30

I have a Piper and we love her name and so does everyone else.

myotherusernameisbetter Fri 13-Feb-15 23:35:07

I know a boy and a girl Piper - both in the same school of 200 odd pupils - probably a bit of an unusual cluster!

TarquinMoriartyGruntfuttockII Fri 13-Feb-15 23:38:17

Love,love,love it. But then I am biased as my DC3 is a Piper. It's an old family name for us and goes back several generations with nothing American about it. In the year my child was born there were only 2 Pipers in the name survey for that year. People do comment that it is an unusual name but I've had nothing but positive reactions with it.

BOFster Fri 13-Feb-15 23:39:06

Very sweet. And still cool for a teenager. I like it.

SnoringNorma Fri 13-Feb-15 23:42:06

Can't get past it being next door's Westie. Sorry.

I'm with squoosh, sounds like calling them Plumber or Roofer... Doesn't sounds like an actual name more like a job, and at a push a boys name not a girls. Interesting that you have such an unusual name in a lost with 3 very common/standard names though, people tend to fall into certain 'camps' of preference.
