Has this name been ruined by the pig?

Does anyone like it? Or is it just too much?

Do you mean Peppa?

Falafel19 Tue 22-Oct-19 20:42:12

Posted too soon. Yes that name is ruined by the pig, what about Pippa though? That's lovely.

spice3 Tue 22-Oct-19 20:43:14

@Falafel19 I like it spelled Pepper rather than Peppa - I just wouldn't want to seem ridiculous especially after the pig! grin

Well, Pepper is a different word to Peppa, I'm Irish, the second syllable is said completely differently, Peppa is the pig, pepper is a condiment. And also, Pepper isn't a name really is it? Only one I've heard of is the old queen in Modern Family.

Even before the pig there's 'salt & pepper'. I'd be worried about teasing.

I have a nice cat called Pepper.

Cayenne is much nicer, and you could make it more unique by spelling it Kay-N.

spice3 Tue 22-Oct-19 20:54:53

Nice for a whiskery dog

Good lord, no. You can't inflict that on a person.

The I hope Pepper grows up to be a Dr

winniesanderson Tue 22-Oct-19 21:01:45

What about Piper? I love that name.

KJayne Tue 22-Oct-19 21:01:50

What a stupid name. Please don't name a child that

Figgygal Tue 22-Oct-19 21:03:31

If you don't want your child to have a ridiculous name don't give them one

Honestly pepper is completely different to peppa and neither are names for a human child

IceCreamConewithaflake Tue 22-Oct-19 21:05:26

Pepper is a very sneezy name.
It's also not a very exotic spice - it would be like calling a child Salt.

I like Piper and Pippa. Pepper would be a big no for me.

Flower17103 Tue 22-Oct-19 21:14:40

No way. Pepper. Your child is not a future seasoning. That is an embarrassing name.

VenusClapTrap Tue 22-Oct-19 21:15:49

Pepa is a Spanish girls name.
Peppa is a cartoon pig.
Pepper is a condiment.

PrincessScarlett Tue 22-Oct-19 21:20:08

I used to work with a girl called Pepper about 15 years ago. Absolutely everyone queried her name, how to spell it, she was mistakenly called Pippa amongst others. She was constantly pointing out she wasn't named after Peppa Pig as her name was spelt Pepper.

You've never seen American Horror Story then? There's a Pepper in the Asylum series... Not a great connotation thlconfused

Thefemalekeithrichards Tue 22-Oct-19 21:20:23

Was perfect for Angie Dickinson in ‘police woman’

Crocky Tue 22-Oct-19 21:20:24

Why do I hope your surname is Potts?

lotusbell Tue 22-Oct-19 21:21:13
