what are your thoughts on this name for a girl?

Wishiwasmoiradingle2017 Sun 05-Mar-17 19:55:17

Overused. .

Awwlookatmybabyspider Sun 05-Mar-17 19:55:26

Sorry to be negative, but. I really don't like it

Summer as a name does not have the greatest reputation.
For some reason other seasonal names are more accepted.

SuperBeagle Sun 05-Mar-17 19:59:37

Objectively, I like it, and I like the associations with the season.

Subjectively, I think it sounds awful in my (Australian) accent: Summah.

I really like Summer and Autumn as names.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 05-Mar-17 20:17:47

I like it too.

Rockaby Sun 05-Mar-17 20:22:45

It's alright. Not my favourite. I really like Autumn and Winter though.

CaoNiMa Sun 05-Mar-17 21:42:36

I've always loved this name.

ToastVacuum Sun 05-Mar-17 22:13:46

I really like it. I see it as a lovely bright and sunny name, and a bit hippy and nature-loving too. I've only met one Summer so I don't think it's overused at all.

My daughter is called Summer! She is almost 10yrs old. When we chose the name, I had only heard of one other Summer, but now I hear it a lot. It's such a happy, cheerful name, IMO.

I love it and have never met an unpleasant summer. You find these names are very Marmite, but who cares? Your baby, your name and I think it's lovely smile

Joeybee Sun 05-Mar-17 22:34:52

I really like Summer - it sounds fun, adventurous, breezy, confident. I can imagine a model, a boho chic girl, a socialite, someone a bit left of centre with this name.
In Australia/UK It's not overused. Perhaps it is more popular in the US though. But it's not actually too popular when you look where it is in the popularity charts.
One thing I would say with this name, is that is doesn't really have any nn potential. For me, I like a versatile name with nn potential that can grow with the child/woman.

I know it's not popular on here, but I have a soft spot for it

It's a 'happy' name.

Rockaby Mon 06-Mar-17 06:33:07

Re nicknames, the only Summer I know is 6 and gets called 'Sums'.

StumblyMonkey Mon 06-Mar-17 06:47:31

I like it (and Autumn too)....

midsomermurderess Mon 06-Mar-17 20:26:49

I think it has become an established, albeit a not that frequently used, name. I like it.

NewPuppyMum Mon 06-Mar-17 20:27:35

A bit try too hard.

WinterWonders Mon 06-Mar-17 20:52:29

* NewPuppyMum* - I'm intrigued by your comment! Please explain.....

HeadlessGummyBears Wed 08-Mar-17 07:09:41

I like it. I also like Winter and Autumn.

WorldWideWish Wed 08-Mar-17 07:11:47

I don't know anyone called Summer but I like it.

Pencilvester Wed 08-Mar-17 07:35:11

It's ok. It doesn't sound good shortened, IMO. We know a Summer, known as Sum-Sum.

Sapphireshadow Wed 08-Mar-17 07:55:00

Like it.

GreekBearingGifts Wed 08-Mar-17 13:09:58

I think it might be a bit overused. Massively popular a few years ago but dropping now. I know a couple, at opposite ends of the social spectrum, so it doesn't necessarily have any particular connotations for me, but I know some people are snobby about it (although I noticed quite a few Summer-Mae, Summer-Rae, Summer-Lily type hyphenations in the baby name stats which I would give a wide berth...)

In the local accent here it gets pronounced as 'Summa' which when shouted across the playground does make my ears bleed...

I dislike it.
