Pier Angeli was a famous Italian actress (1932-1971). I think this name works well for a girl and a boy!

Made me think of the English word pier meaning "a structure built on posts extending from land out over water, used as a landing place for ships, an entertainment area, a strolling place, etc.; jetty." This wasn't a negative thought, but it was my first thought while looking at this name.

This is also a Dutch word meaning worm and it reminds me of the expression "zo dood als een Pier" = "as dead as a worm". Not good.

Pier is also commonly used in Italy for compound names (like Pier Angelo), sometimes attached (like Pierluigi) and often used as a nickname for who has such names. [noted -ed]

It's very close to the French name “Pierre”. I'm surprised to see this is a Dutch name because it's quite current in Italy (even if it doesn't end with an "o")
