That is actually a really cute name. I haven’t heard it before but it sounds nice!

I like it! Cute and less common than Wren, which I’m seeing a lot these days.

I think Capri is very cute.  🙂  I also like Wren/Ren, though.  Both would be great choices, imo.

I’m not crazy about it, but if it speaks to you go for it.

I think Capri is really cute!

Haha, I just posted about the name Jude. It’s the only name Darling Husband will agree on besides his own and I don’t want a junior.

I’m not a fan.  It makes me think of a Donatella Versace type of overdone European woman.  Sorry.

But all that matters is that you like it.  So if you do, go for it. I personally love Wren/Ren

Doesn’t Capri- mean goat? As in capricorn?  My initial thought when i hear it is a combination of “goat” and those ugly short pants (Capris?) that look terrible on tall girls like me. A wren is a bird so maybe you don’t mind the whole goat thing.

I actually have a co-worker with that as her middle name!  I have always thought it was interesting.

*** edit- I meant Capri

@MrsBroccoli: LOL!

 

I looked it up because I was curious, and yeah, it pretty much does mean goat.  On wikipedia it says the island of Capri may have gotten it’s name from the word for boar.  Capri in itself doesn’t sound bad, but not a fan of naming a baby girl after goats or boar.  

 

I like Wren better; wrens are cool birds!  Especially rufous-naped wrens and Cactus wrens.  lol.

I personally don’t like it as a name, but only because I think of “Capri Sun” (the juice bags for kids) and also capri pants.

 

I guess if you don’t have that juice in your area, then it wouldn’t be a big deal.
