i LOVE harlow!
i LOVE harlow!
I’m with your Fiance. Harlow reminds me of harlet.
Harper is much nicer, IMO. 🙂
To me Harlow sounds like a boy’s name, as I have a male friend whose name is pronounced “Harlow” (although it’s spelt slightly differently). I prefer Harper for a little girl.
ETA: Ah, oops, just saw your update. I do agree with a PP – if I’m introduced to a little girl and told that her name is Harlow, then I know that all I’d think is, oh, so cute!
I don’t like either. Sorry!
I’d keep looking at names. It seems like alot of people are naming their kids Harlow or Harper these days, so I’d say neither.
I agree with others, I’d maybe keep looking for names.
Out of the two, I prefer Harper…BUT..it’s SOOOO popular right now. I know at least 5 Harper’s born within the past year (and those are just the ones i know personally). Harlow makes me think of harlet – and that makes me think of hooker.
I know someone who named his daughter Hadley. Maybe that would work for you?
i work with 3 doctors who have daughers named Harlow.
If you’re worried about common names I would stay away from Harlow too.
I like them both, but would vote for Harper.
Haven’t had time to read 6 pages so I don’t know if anyone has mentioned this… But, as a psych student, the name Harlow conjures up the rather unfortunate connection with an experiment named “Harlow’s monkeys” that looked at the nature of motherly love by putting baby monkeys into some rather unfortunate conditions… <br /><br />If that doesn’t bother you, its rather pretty.
I like either! Don’t know any babies called Harper but a friend has a Harlow and she’s gorgeous! A guy I went to school with just named his daughter Harley! X
