Comments and insights on the name Scout

Scout seems more like a nickname for a boy than a real name for a girl!

Actually, my daughter's name is Scout. It is a very real name for a girl...

I can see Scout as a nickname, but I can't imagine Scout being a real, designated name, but it's Demi Moore's 2nd daughter's real name!

Love this name, particularly as an homage to "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee.

In "To Kill a Mockingbird", Scout's real name was Jean Louise Finch. Scout was her nickname.

What's green and sits on the toilet? A girl scout doing her duty.

OK as a nickname, but it's not very feminine sounding for a girl.

Personal experiences with the name Scout

I met a little girl named Scout one time, and she was very sweet!! She was a bit shy at first, but after I had talked to her we quickly became friends. She was, as I said, sweet, and curious and talkative once I got to know her. My name is Scout and I have always been an all As student all my life.
