I just think this name is kinda weird. It is certainly 'original' but I don't really like if to much. However, I'm sure there are a lot of nice people named Spencer out there and I wish them well!

My sister's name is Spencer and people constantly think that'she must be a boy by her name. Once, when she was in school, a subsitute teacher told her to get out of her'seat because it could not be her'seat - that'seat belonged to "Spencer." A nice name, though.

This is my 2-year old son's name. We thought it was really unique and then I found out the woman two doors down from me in the hospital where I had my baby had named her'son Xander also! LOL. Since then I have met one other Xander. People always think it is short for "Alexander" or It's pronounce EX-ander. I hate it when people who know my son spell it with a Z. Or they think It's from that'stupid Buffy the Vampire Slayer'show..I love the name! My mom thinks It's weird...too bad!
