Harper the New Hot New Name For Baby Girls
Harper it seems is the popular new name for baby girls. Perhaps, Harper is a nod to Harper Lee the author of To Kill A Mockingbird - which is on the reading list of many school children in North America.
Harper is a true 21st century name, hardly heard of for either sex before the mid-2000s. It entered the girls’ popularity list in 2004 at No. 887, and by last year had leaped up to No. 174, with every indication that it will climb even higher, and this was partly due to its prominence in the celebrisphere. Ali Wentworth and George Stephanopoulis led the way in 2005, and they were followed by Lisa Marie Presley, David Spade, Dave Grohl and Martie Maguire -- all parents of pink-clad Harpers.
