Harper
 
DD insists that her sister is going to be named Harper. I like the name, but have not influenced her at all--I asked her if she liked the name and from that point on she insists the baby silk be named Harper. I asked her the same way I asked about all the other girl names--she said no to most and Harper was the only one that stick for more than 5 minutes (it has been at least 3 weeks with plenty of suggestions on other names).
DH is not a fan. But, DD always gets what she wants from him, so I think Harper is set.
Trying to think of a MN for Harper. I like Harper Grace, but one of the celebrities used that in the past few years. I like Harper Kate, but it doesn't seem to flow well. Lee was his mom's MN, but unsure about Harper Lee (To Kill A Mockingbird)--although I think he would like that. If it was a boy, it would have had his father's full name.
Any other suggestions? Our last name starts with a W and ends in -on. Thoughts on Harper Lee? DD likes it. LOL
Thanks!

Harper Lee makes me think of the author immediately. If that doesnt bother you then go for it.

Others:

Harper Lynn
Harper Mae
Harper Jane
Harper Laine
Harper Elise

Love Harper! If Harper Lee is too TKAM for you you could always pick a middle that ends with lee so you're still using the family name but throwing off that association.

Harper Brinlee
Harper Amberlee
Harper Kaylee
Harper Kinlee
Harper Bailee
Harper Avonlee
Harper Tinlee
Harper Rylee
Harper Kylee

Maybe combine another family name with the lee ending?

My daughters name is Harper so I love it!! That said I like Joni's idea of using a name that has lee in it!! Celebrities aside she is the only Harper I know in real life.

I don't know if, years ahead, anyone would associate YOUR Harper Grace with the celeb Harper Grace (I never would have picked up on it). I love Harper Grace. I say go for it!

I was going to choose Harper if I was having a girl but he is a boy, so no more Harper! It's a beautiful name that goes with anything. That being said, I personally wouldn't pick lee unless I was a big Harper lee or to kill a mockingbird fan. I think Harper Kate is adorable. Like I said, its a great name and any middle namd you pick will sound great.

I toyed with the idea of using Harper for a boy, but so many people are using it as a girl's name, I can't really get on board with it for a boy. Had nobody ever used the name before, it would definitely be uni-sex to me.
