Comments and insights on the name Spencer: | Edit

I named my oldest daughter Spencer Elizabeth. Princess Di died while I was pregnant with her and Spencer was her maiden name, so Spencer can say she was named after a princess

My goddaughter is 2 and is named Spencer Louise. I think it's a good girl's name.

Too masculine-sounding for a girl - my opinion

Personal experiences with the name Spencer: | Edit

I used this name for my second daughter. It's unusual but it was a good match for her older sibling. She sometimes wished I had spelled it Spenser to distinguish it from the male version.

I know a girl who spells her name Spensyr.
