- Personal experiences with the name Harlow: | Edit
My friend named her daughter (born in 2007) Harlow. People sometimes ask her if she got the name from Nicole Richie's daughter, which isn't the case since that Harlow was born in 2008. I admit I didn't like the name at first, but it's grown on me. I think Harlow has the potential to become a very popular name in the next few years.
My daughter's name is Harlo! People love it and say it is very unique! Her middle name is Skye and her nickname is Harley!!!
