I know a girl named Perry. I thought it was a little weird at first, but I think it really fits her. I don't think I'd ever name a girl Perry, though.

I was actually very suprised when the site said that Perry was a boy name. One of my best friend's names is Perina. We call her Perry for short.

Perry might be linked to Periwinkle.

I love the name. I think I like it better on guys. But girls would be okay to, I guess.

I've also seen it as a short form of Pericles.

I have seen the name Perry used as a nickname for the feminine given name Persephone.

I love Perry as a nickname, and would use it for Percival or Peregrine.

A famous bearer is singer Katy Perry, who by the way is GREAT.

I personally think this name would sound better on a girl not boy. It does not seem strong enough to belong to a man.

Christopher Perry Halliwell of Charmed. Goes by Christopher Perry until his identity is revealed.

I don't like Perry as a name at all, but I've heard of a girl named Perry Katherine and that always sounded cute to me. Otherwise, best as a last name.

Perry Smith, along with Dick Hickock, murdered four members of the Clutter family of Holcomb, Kansas, in the late 1950s. This became the subject of Truman Capote's novel In Cold Blood.
Perry Farrell (born Perry Bernstein) was the frontman of the band Jane's Addiction and the founder of the Lollapalooza music festival. His stage name is a play on "peripheral."

I cannot imagine a girl being named Perry. That's like a boy being named Sarah. It just doesn't work. I have only known one Perry and he was awesome so I guess I'm ok with the name. I don't really like it or hate it.

I can't think of anything else than "Perry the Platypus" when I hear this name. I grew up with Phineas and Ferb.
I also think of Perry Johanson (or something like that), one of the many names Mr. D gave Percy in The Percy Jackson and the Olympians series.
My sister calls her cat Perry (the poor animal's name is Percy Apollo Nico Romeo Luke de Las Botas).

Perry is also the name of an alcoholic beverage made from pears.

I can't take this name seriously, and I don't think your child's peers would either, what with the Perry the platypus and Katy Perry references that are bound to happen.

I would have to disagree with your comment, because...

1. Katy Perry is actually a very decent songwriter! Plus, she's not as popular now as she was 10 years ago.
2. Perry the Platypus is awesome! Everyone loves Agent P! (Well, almost everyone. But my point is, everyone would love the association.)

The name Perry was given to 144 baby boys born in the US in 2012.

Decent name. I hope it doesn't become feminine because of that dopey Perrie Edwards.

I love this name on a girl. I had a best friend named Perry, and she was the sweetest person I ever met, and she had a lovely voice. When I looked it up online, I was shocked to see it was a boy name. I think Perry has feminine grace and lacks masculine strength.

Pronounced as Pair-E in the states.
ThatMazerunnerfan  9/10/2014
In Canada, and the only way I've ever heard this pronounced exactly like pear the fruit (or "pair" as in "a pair of socks") plus "ee."

One of my best friends is named Perry, and she's a girl. I love this name, and in fact, I've only ever seen it for girls, which is odd, considering that this says it is a mainly masculine name.

My hyphenated name is Perry although I don't particularly like it and wish I could change it.

The name Perry was given to 139 boys born in the US in 2015.

Okay name, but that goddamn platypus has ruined this name for me, and that's why I won't use it myself.
MarioDM02  2/16/2018
I would like to withdraw the previous statement that I have made earlier. As it turns out... Perry the Platypus is awesome! But I have to admit... I'm not sure if I'd use this name (or as a first name at least). On the other hand, the connotation's cool! But I'm not sure if by the 2030s or 2040s it will stick around. But Perry's a cool name nonetheless!
MarioDM02  4/29/2018
Perry the Platypus has not ruined the name because Agent P is awesome! Plus, Phineas & Ferb has been off air for a while now, but it was the best modern cartoon anyway.

Perry is a family surname for me that I am using for my third son who is due in a few months, and my older sons love the Perry the Platypus association. Scooby-dooby-doowah A-gent P!

Perry is the county seat of Houston County, Georgia.
