As a parent, knowing the behavioral characteristics of your baby Girl Piper has vital importance. She is inspired by enthusiasm and a pioneering sense. She always likes to develop herself by competing in hard competitions. She is sure about herself and has self-confidence in most cases and this trait leads her to strong determination in doing things.

She never likes to hear No! especially from her parents. So, you should be aware of her dislikes and take care of her sensitive spirit. She never likes to get stopped by obstacles. Instead, she likes to jump from them or find another way to solve it. If she finds it unsolvable, she will ignore it rather than put much useless effort into it.

We've been kicking around the name Piper for some time. When our son was born, it was the name we had picked out if he had been a girl. When our youngest was born, we went with Lila Rose instead of Piper Rose, mainly for ethnicity reasons. I wanted a name that reflected my heritage. We are hoping to be blessed with one more baby and if God smiles upon us with one more little angel and it's a girl- we will use the name Piper this time around!! My mother hates the name. (An added bonus for my husband LOL) And for that reason, we've always questioned it. We adore the name! And seeing all of the positive feedback I've seen here, I think it's time my husband and I use the name we have loved for years and stop worrying what other people think...

we had 2 boys and were elated to discover our last would be a girl. both the boys names started with a p so it only seemed proper to name our 3rd a p name. Piper it was. it took awhile for family to get adjusted, but everyone loves it. her middle name is blain, which is one of her godfather's last name.
