It makes me think of the character on the TV show Nashville. While I’m not crazy about the name, I like the character. 😉

I have heard of the name but I don’t know anyone with that name. I’m not sure if it’s for me, but if you both really like that, that’s all that matters! Personally, it reminds me of a tall, strong southern boy, but I see you’re in Australia so the culture might be a lot different there.

On the other hand, I have heard of Hunter a lot in my area, but it still gives me the same vibe.

I’ve usually seen it spelled “Gunnar” – it’s a fairly common Scandinavian name.

Gunner was my dogs name growing up! Love it for a puppy, not sure for a human but I may be biased.

I live in Boston, so just imagining that name said with a Boston accent throws me off.

Also, my uncle (named Bobby) randomly decided a few years ago to start introducing himself to new people as Gunner. Why? No one knows..

@dannielle89:  Darling Husband loves the name Gunner. I like it, but I’m not in love with it so we went with another name but Gunner is super cute!

I think the name might be associated differently in America vs Australia because I think it’s a little country. If you both love it I would keep it on your list though!!

@dannielle89:  I have never seen the name spelled Gunner – only the job.  I have seen it spelled Gunar, and it’s of Swedish origin.  If I were to use that name, I’d spell it the traditional way.  I think it’s a nice name, but I probably wouldn’t use an ethnic name that had no connection to me.  Of course, I don’t bat an eye when a Chinese kid is named Sean, or Ian.  It’s not someting that would bother me if I knew someone named Gunar who wasn’t Swedish, I just don’t think I’d use it, myself.

I’ve only ever known that name from the Nelson twins. They were a pair of musicians in the 80’s – twin rocker guys with long blonde hair. their dad was a musician as well. I liked them a lot. And truth be told, if I listened to them again now, I’d probably still like them. It’s a cool name! I vote yes!

I’ve seen Gunnar as a boy’s name. The spelling Gunner makes me think of our friend’s dog. If you like it, go for it!

@soontobebe:  YES. Nelson! One of my high school boyfriends dressed as Nelson with his best friend for Halloween one year.

Oh God I’m old…

I do like the name, though, spelled with an “a”.
