I find this name annoying for some reason. Maybe it reminds me of Kipling or some other annoying name. It sounds a bit pretentious somehow. I absolutely loathe the name on females. It sounds too boyish for any self-respecting grown woman. And pretty it also isn't.

This is the name of one of the main female characters in Nora Roberts' Three Sisters trilogy. It's unique and I do think it suits a girl just fine too.

There used to be a TV show on CITV called 'Ripley & Scuff'. Naturally, Ripley was one of the characters.

This is a cool name. I hate it on a boy, it's okay on a girl, but I think it's best on a cat or dog, lol.
