I don’t neccesarily hate it or love it. I guess it does sound more like a boys name than a girls but I think he is going to have to constantly correct people about what his name it since it isn’t a familiar name.

@roxy: what is so difficult about the name that he will have to correct people? It is a pretty straight forward as far as im concerned.

The spelling of the name will always need to be helped/corrected, it’s just not a common name and unless someone who regularly sees him would have any clue what the name is 🙂

Would you ever actually call him Pierson, or would you call him Pierce?
The reason I ask, is because I like Pierce, but I just can’t get on board with Pierson. To me, I can’t picture a little boy or a grown man introducing himself as “Pierson”, which is usually how I figure out if I like a name or not. To me, it’s a bit awkward and sounds almost stuffy.
I DO like the name Pierce though, it’s very masculine. I feel like a guy named Pierce would be a cool, hot guy who drives a great car. 😉

Like the name, not the spelling.

I give it a thumbs up! It sounds intellectual and business-like.

thanks everyone for your thoughts 🙂 we would call him both pierson/pierce. i like pierson bc it sounds older/sophistacated when he gets older (job interviews, etc) but pierce is still a laidback cool nickname for him. im surprised people thought it would be hard to pronouce, i thought it was pretty straight forward, i would hate for him to ALWAYS have to correct people on how to say it.

My dads name is Pierce so I like it 🙂

It’s definitely not a girly name. Out of the two, I prefer Pierce (who doesn’t think of Mr Brosnan!).
But I do think it’s important to consider the surname(s) it will be connected to. After all, this little chap will have it all his life…

LOVE IT! It was on my short list but hubby didn’t love it.

I like it! It’s different, but still masculine and not too “overdone” like some similar names.

I think it’s cute and different! Def a boy name!

I like Pierson a lot, and I would assume it was a boy’s name.

Not a huge fan of Pierson, although I like Pierce. It definitely sounds like a boy’s name though.
