Comments and insights on the name Beryl

This my son's middle name because we wanted to use a name from the Gemstones of Revelation in the Bible. We like to call him "little bear".

Personal experiences with the name Beryl

I like having this name as a middle name because of the "bear" nicknames. When we first started thinking about the name I was afraid it would sound to old-woman-y, but not anymore. He really is a sweet little bear.

This is a name for three generations of males in my family. It's pronounced "Burl," though people usually get it wrong and assume it rhymes with "barrel"--the more common way, I think. People also usually assume it's female. Our Beryls mostly go by unrelated nicknames.
