I'm considering this name for our baby if we have a boy. I know some people use it as a girls name but I think It'suits a boy as well. We've gone for Leighton Thomas and I don't mind It'shortened either.

We have a one year old girl and we did name her Harper. We had thought of Harper Grace, but we went with Harper Elise. Most people have never heard of the name, or say It's a boy's name, but we like it..most educated people know It's an old english name..and of course, Harper Lee too. Funny story, when'the wife was about to give birth, the nurse says "what are you going to name her ❤️" and we tell her Harper..and the nurse says "Harper❤️ never heard of it"..and then 5 minutes later the baby came out..and the nurse goes and I quote "oh my god..she looks just like a Harper"..and she was not being sarcastic either.....true story. we are prego again, and if It's a girl, we are going to do PIPER or FALLON.
