Comments and insights on the name Sparrow: | Edit

I think this would be a very cute, slightly hippie-ish, name for a girl. Terrible idea to give a boy this name.

Personal experiences with the name Sparrow: | Edit

My Daughter's name is Sparrow. We got a lot of flack in the beginning for deciding on this name, but we were steadfast in our decision. I don't really know where the name came to us from, it just came, and it fit our girl perfectly. Most people call her Birdy or Rae Bird, or even at times Birdy Rae. (Her middle name is Rae in case you couldn't figure). Now most of the time when people hear her name they comment that it is beautiful, peaceful, and matches her perfectly. She's a Bird!

We call our daughter Sparrow. The 2 people who I told beforehand (grandparents) made faces and politely nodded, but everyone I've told after her birth are extremely emphatic about how much they love that name. It's her middle name, but everyone loves to call her Sparrow.
