River vs. Like it vs. Hate it

Do you like the name River? DH and I really like it but we want to get an outside opinion. I know it’s really popular on this site but it actually ranked 372 in 2013( in the U.S.)and it is still almost unheard of where we live.

I’ve met one person with this name and it was a little girl. I like it for either gender though. I think it’s a name which is more popular in popular culture than real life so by all means use it. The images it conjures for me are River Phoenix (Male), River Song from Doctor Who (Female) and River Tam from Firefly (Female). Overall, I like it

Way too Trendy and it doesn’t even sound like a name. plus it will get more popular every where now that celebrity’s have started to use it.

I hate it. It’s too hippie drippy for me. I don’t find it strong or masculine. It’s about as good as a knitted condom!

I feel that it has no substance to it.

I think it’s cute but I also think it will get really popular soon but of that doesn’t bother you then I’d go for it.

I’m not a fan of the name but its a lot better then some of the names I’ve seen. If both you and your husband like it then i would go for it since that the most important thing, that you both like it.

River’s okay. I only like it for a girl. I think it sounds too hippy-ish on a boy, but it’s pretty for a girl.
