I first noticed this name a few months ago. My younger sister has a friend, Vail, whose twin brother's name is Ashton, and younger twin siblings names are Cecelia and Reed. I also like the meaning, "Ruddy". I can just see a strong little boy running around on the moors of Scotland hundreds of years ago.

Reed is an English surname, not Scottish (although it happens to be found in Scotland too). The meanings are: 1) nickname for a person with red hair or a ruddy complexion, from Middle English re(a)d ‘red’. 2) topographic name for someone who lived in a clearing, from an unattested Old English ried, ‘woodland clearing’. 3) habitational name from various places: Read in Lancashire, the name of which is a contracted form of Old English rægheafod, from ræge ‘female roe deer’, ‘she-goat’ + heafod ‘head(land)’; Rede in Suffolk, so called from Old English hreod ‘reeds’; or Reed in Hertfordshire, so called from an Old English ryhð ‘brushwood’.

My surname! I think it's quite a handsome name for a boy.

I detest this name. It sounds like "weed" and there is a boy I am not particularly fond of named Reed, so that made it worse.

Reed is the main, female character's name in Kate Brian's Private series.

Reed just screams "sleazy cool" to me, just like Lou Reed, American singer best known for his work in the 60s New York band "The Velvet Underground" and his solo albums such as "Transformer".

Reid is my maiden name and I think Reid or Reide is a nice boy or girl middle name, or even Reida as a feminine variation, to give tribute to the family surname. I like it with the "i" more than the double "e" spelling, as I think it looks more elegant. As a first name I think it doesn't roll off the tongue well enough for frequent use.

Cool middle name. I don't really like it as a first.
