Personal experiences with the name Harris: | Edit

My son is called Harris & everybody loves it! Unusual in a good way! Strong! Masculine! I just love it! X

Much better than Harrison as its not overused!

I was an RA this summer at a debate camp, and my favorite student was named Harris. It's a smart, classic, kind name, if a bit serious.

I'm pregnant right now and we still don't know if our baby is a boy or girl, but we decided on Harris as the name for our baby, regardless of gender. Harris is my mother's maiden name and I wanted to carry that name on to my children somehow. I'm SUPER excited to share the name with my family.
