A beautiful name for a girl, especially in a family of singers or musicians.

To anyone reading this who likes the name. Don't be put off by the 'honest opinions' of some of these people. Clearly their mothers never taught them the difference between honest and down right rude. Especially when they write that they vomited on hearing the name even after seeing a post from someone actually named Lark - how lovely of them. My daughter is named Lark, I don't find it harsh or ugly, and almost everyone who hears it, comments on how pretty it is. My daughter is very much a girly girl, very feminine and it suits her just fine. I do hope however that it doesn't get popular, as I like the fact that no one else in her class will have the name. No need to add the first letter of her last name just to differentiate her from the three other girls in the class with the same name! So ignore the nasty comments :)

37 baby girls born in the USA (2015) were given Lark.

Ewwww *Nearly vomits on screen* who in their right mind who name their daughter this? Lark sounds VERY harsh and also, unflattering. It's an horrific name for both genders but worse on a girl. There is nothing remotely feminine about the name. It's absolutely revolting. Nothing I'd ever use; character, pet or child.
This name isn't very popular and I can understand why. And I can guarantee that it will never become excessively popular and common. Lark is such an ugly, ugly, ugly, harsh and unflattering name. My honest opinion.

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." :)

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 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.

Lark Ingoldsby is the main female character in the 1948 film "Enchantment".

It seems harsh for a girl. I guess because it's so close to Clark.

I prefer Larka (girl's name) from a book I read. I also know a kid named Larkin.

I prefer Skylark, but Lark is still pretty.

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.

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.

This name sounds too masculine for a girl.

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.

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.

In Les Miserables, Cosette's nickname is "The Lark".
Pippin  7/6/2008
It sounds like Clark, which makes it sound somewhat masculine. I don't like it.

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

Lark is the name of Sandry's teacher in the Circle of Magic books.

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.

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

Very pretty name indeed. It would make a nice middle name for someone born in July. (The flower for July is larkspur.)
wordybookworm  8/12/2006
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.

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

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