Ok. It's kind of strange if your child is named after a sound. Imagine the teacher calling roll call. Meep? Meep? Meeeeeeep? One of the strangest names in the bunch in my opinion.

Seems cute for a little Dutch girl, say under the age of 10, but would easily be mispronounced as MY-ep in America. Also, the correct pronunciation would probably get some snickers (meep, meep! is the sound the roadrunner in the cartoons makes.)

When I first read about Anne Frank's diary, I thougt that Miep and Bep were hillarious names, even though I am German. But I have finished the book, and I think it is a cool nickname now.
