Comments for LARK:

This is one of the worst names out there. Harsh and ugly sounding.

My nickname is Lark and I think it's really cool.

I feel that this name is very pretty. It's a nice nickname that I use for my sister, and I know that she absolutely adores it. Plus, they use it in Les Miserables for Cosette, which gives it lots of cool points.

Very pretty name indeed. It would make a nice middle name for someone born in July. (The flower for July is larkspur.)

My name is Lark, and I absolutely love it! I'm thankful to have such a unique name!

Lark is a horrible name! Who would name their kid that? Are they out of their minds? It is a terrible name; for either a boy or girl.

You're having a Lark, right? Tee hee.

It sounds like Clark, which makes it sound somewhat masculine. I don't like it.

In Les Miserables, Cosette's nickname is "The Lark".

I think it is a beautiful name but get the feeling that the joke 'Were your parents larking about when they named you?' may appear in that persons life.

To lark about is to joke about. Not sure how widely used this term is.

I really like the name Lark thanks to the enchanting BBC series Lark Rise to Candleford. Whether I'd ever use it, probably not. It would make a lovely name for a character.

This name sounds too masculine for a girl.
-- number1212  4/25/2009
The meaning is feminine, but the word itself sounds masculine to me. I could maybe see this as a middle name, but not a first.
-- Aurora Lynn  5/9/2009
Lark sounds completely feminine to me. I love the name. I think it sounds really pretty and unique. And, the Lark is Cosette's nickname in Les Misérables, which I like.

I prefer Skylark, but Lark is still pretty.
-- erb816  12/27/2009
I prefer Larka (girl's name) from a book I read. I also know a kid named Larkin.
-- felltheblackwolf  6/2/2011
It seems harsh for a girl. I guess because it's so close to Clark.
-- GibsonGirl  11/14/2011
Lark Ingoldsby is the main female character in the 1948 film "Enchantment".

I think this name is too cutesy for a first name- but it would make an interesting middle name:) Definitely a girl's name.. you don't name a boy after birds, flowers, gemstones, etc.
-- foreverslowly  8/18/2012
Eh. I think it can be unisex, but its much better as a middle name. There's a celebrity with a baby daughter called Agnes Lark, can't remember who... But I think it's a pretty and refreshing combination :)

I named my daughter Lark. The name came to me when I was pregnant and I do admit, at first it sounded rather harsh to me but I could not get the name out of my head, as if I was supposed to name her Lark. I live in a predominately black community and reactions to the name were not positive so it was difficult when she was an infant because so many people would say "Lark? What kind of name is that?" Anyway, I am so glad to have chosen this name. There is a gorgeous piece of music called "The Lark Ascending" by a British composer. It isn't a name for everyone perhaps, but my daughter loves her name and coincidentally is developing as "happy as a Lark." :)
