Made the mistake of telling some family members the boy name we love and their reactions were quite dramatic. They hate it. Thinking it's because of the alliteration. I don't want to give our baby an awful name! However, we don't think it's awful and my hubby loves it. The name would be Harvey Cooper Horton.
Not a lot of people like the name we've got chosen for our daughter. I usually get the response of "I thought that was a boys name" or "I don't like that" but I don't care. Me and my partner like it and people are eventually starting to come around to the name. I can't see anything wrong with the name you have chosen
When I had my daughter I told family our choices and they mocked both of them! It annoyed me at the time but when she was born I still called her it because it was my choice not theirs! People always tell me now what a lovely name it is...even if they can't spell or pronounce it 😂. If someone tells me what names they like I always say it's lovely even if it's not what I would call my own baby. It's 100% your choice. I have an alliterative name in mind for our next baby who is due in July. I've just learnt to keep it to myself and say I don't know what I want to call it yet!
I think if many others dislike a name, it's worth listening to what they say as it isn't just you that's got to like a name, the child does (or at least not be mocked etc for it).
I wouldn't give a boy's name to a girl for a few reasons but surnames for first names doesn't bother me as much. I'm not keen on alliterative names and Harvey Horton sounds a bit Dr Seus. Also names that are also surnames for both first and middle names does sound like a solicitors or estate agents like others have said.
Redyellow it's so common in Cornwall that my great grandparents were both Harveys before they married - no relation. There were also other unrelated Harveys on the same street my grandmother grew up on
I'm so sorry to disappoint but if asked the first thing hat crossed my mind was Mad Men. I think they even had Cooper for a while here too ;) Otherwise it sounds OK. All names/ surnames are good, strong sounding names on their own. It might not be that bad. And children at school won't think of solicitors office they might later on but by then (if it happens at all) he shouldn't take things like that too personally.
