Love it!

I like Piper a lot.

It's become very popular where I live though.

mrssmith79 Sat 21-Jan-17 22:30:13

I like it smile

Vandenessa Sat 21-Jan-17 22:32:08

Very American, and reminds me of oranges are the new black. Not that those matter. In the same category as Harrison et al

Dolwar Sat 21-Jan-17 22:40:44

Reminds me of a stripper in coyote ugly tbh

'He who pays the piper calls the tune'.
It's not a first name.

I dont like how it looks when written down, I just see pipe, which isn't such a nice word!

calamityjam Sat 21-Jan-17 22:45:40

Reminds me of Piper Halliwell from Charmed and yes, I love it. I also love Hadley for a girl, also Americanish

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sat 21-Jan-17 23:06:52

I like it.

8DaysAWeek Sat 21-Jan-17 23:25:58

Love it

It's not a first name.

It's been used as a first name since the 18th century, actually.

I wanted Peppa for DS if he'd been a girl, everyone tried to persuade me to use Piper instead.

I still prefer Peppa but Piper is almost as nice wink

AmyInTheBoonies Sat 21-Jan-17 23:41:10

Same vein as Courtney, Brittany etc. Not a good choice imo

PlymouthMaid1 Sat 21-Jan-17 23:44:45

I want to like it but the more I say it, the more irritating it becomes.

Carnabyqueen Sat 21-Jan-17 23:46:04

Love it. Short and cute.

ScarletSienna Sat 21-Jan-17 23:49:06

So many names get shortened in the playground and I can't get over hearing, 'Pipe' or worse 'Pie'. I know it would have got shortened to 'Pie' for me in my rotund early teenage years.

Aside from that, it isn't my taste but then I don't like first name/surname male/female ambiguous names generally.

DoloresVanCartier Sat 21-Jan-17 23:49:45

Absolutely love it and have since charmed came out years ago

Isadora2007 Sat 21-Jan-17 23:51:57

It can vary so much with accents so think of your most chavtastic local accent and say it with that...

I like it. I know one Piper in real life who is 11 I'd imagine with orange is the new black it will be more popular now too.

SixFeetUnder Sat 21-Jan-17 23:55:50

I love it and was my first choice if I'd had a girl.

Piper Alpha disaster

Sophronia Sun 22-Jan-17 00:08:05

Not keen. I think it's going to be the new Harper.

DramaAlpaca Sun 22-Jan-17 00:09:29

I don't like it at all.

Sweets101 Sun 22-Jan-17 00:10:51

I don't like it, but i can kind if see why others would.
