- Personal experiences with the name Huckleberry: | Edit
my awesome friends named their little boy Huckleberry and everyone that hears it thinks it's the BEST NAME EVER.
My beautiful Grand-daughter (now just 3) is Huckleberry and we have had our share of gasps and "oh my's" but like your friends, we have found mostly positive reaction - especially from her kindergarten teachers - there is only one Huckleberry for us - and so far, this is true outside the home. People who can't get used to the name shorten it to "berry" - from her british family she gets Bezza or Bez - I've heard Hucklebuddy - but she is my little Huckleberry - a beautiful little girl with a beautiful name.
