Beryl Bainbridge is one of my favorite authors. *Beryl* is a great name and rolls effortlessly off the tongue.

My daughter's name is Jacy Beryl, and everyone loves it. It makes a good middle name.

I like this name, but people seem to have trouble figuring out how to pronounce it. (I don't get that since they don't seem to need any help with Meryl)

Beryl Stapleton is a character in "The Hound of the Baskervilles" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Beryl has always seemed like an elderly name to me.

It sounds hopelessly old-fashioned, like the name of a grandmother, or some middle-aged woman who dresses in worn-out, loose-fitting clothes and wears ugly glasses from the 70s. Sheryl at least sounds pretty. Even Meryl is better.

Beryl--Barrel? Please, if you're going to live in a English-speaking area, do your daughter a favor and do NOT name her this! Although I admit the gemstone is very pretty.

The female protagonist from the spinoff novel of Devil May Cry 2 was named Beryl. She is very determined and feisty, and I think the name suits her well.

Beryl looks pretty written out, and its origin is cool and all, but I can't help associating it with the word "barrel".

Beryl is a nice name. Say it like BEAR-UL not BAR-AL. It's my middle name, after my grandmother. I like how it rolls off the tongue. It very nice.

I think Beryl is a nice name, and I can really see it on a little girl under 5, and as an old name as well. But it is relatively unheard of nowadays, which is a real shame, because I think it would really suit a young child. :)

This is a also a boys' name in Yiddish, as a nickname for the name Ber. I first encountered it in some Sholem Aleichem stories, so I have a hard time seeing it as a girls' name.

There is a children's book called Beryl's Box, which I love!

Barrell. Enough said.

I think this name is very cute in theory and I like the stone. However, it simply sounds like "barrel," which makes it rather unusable as a name for a real child.

It's pronounced beh-rill - it's never reminded me of barrel.

Beryl Marsden, a British R&B and pop singer.

Not a favourite of mine but I can't understand why so many people hate it. Perhaps that's because so many people are reminded of "barrel" - why this should be is puzzling as the name is pronounced beh-ril. If Ruby can achieve popularity why can't Beryl, of similar vintage and also a jewel name? It's much prettier than Ruby IMHO.

British actress Beryl Reid (1919-96), known for her work as a comedienne, and also for her starring role opposite Susannah York in "The Killing of Sister George".
She was known also for living in a round-shaped house in the countryside and her love of cats. Her middle name was Elizabeth.

A name my family uses for boys' middle names is Burrill which was once a surname.

The name Beryl is sooo pretty, sweet and cute! I love this name so much! ^___^

This name travels deep in my family. My great great grandfather was a Beryl from Troms Norway, he had a junior but the junior didn't have a son but a daughter, my grandmother, who was named Glendolyn Beryl Brooks, who then named my father Beryl Brooks Ivar as the first born. I am Amberle Brooke (a play on the name phonetically; Amber also a semi precious jewel and the female protagonist of the Shannara fantasy book series) and my brother was a Michael Beryl Brooks. I love the unisex usage, especially throughout the decades, not just a trendy use of names like Madison, Riley, or Kendal.
