Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
I don't use this word to describe many things, but this as a name is cringy. It should be cool but it's just not. Super cheesy.

Weird, weird, weird and weird.

Lovely name on both genders. It kind of has a pleasantly mysterious feel about it.

Bird name. Too strange for a human.

Everybody will think of Jack Sparrow. Don't use this name.

The name Sparrow was given to 54 girls born in the US in 2015.

I have used this for the name of a character (her full name was Sparrow Tigerlily). I would be hesitant to use it on a child, and I certainly wouldn't pair it with a nature name in the middle (like Tigerlily), but it can work.

Hi, my name is Sparrow. I'm a girl. Some people say that kids with this name will get bullied, I've never been bullied. Almost every person says that they like my name and that it's pretty. I think it could be used as a guy name but I think it sounds more feminine.

With this name, I am cut two ways. If the person is small and spindly with brown hair and dusty brown skin, if they are curious yet quiet, I can see it fitting. I can see it being perfect.
But if they grow up strong and bright-cheeked, loud or dramatic or chubby... the name might just be an embarrassment.
And when a child is born, you cannot know.
I would use it in a story, maybe, when I have control over how they will grow.

Sparrow is the name of the first-person protagonist of Emma Bull's book "Bone Dance", in which the unisex nature of this name is exploited.

Sparrows are my favorite bird LOL! But I wouldn't call my child that.
Well, maybe, I guess, if I had to.

I kind of like it, but it's too "out there" for me to use on a kid. And it reminds me of a bird.

This sounds stupid as a name. No wonder why Nicole Richie and her boyfriend went for this when naming their newborn son. There are names with similar meanings in other languages. And I also hate the association with the annoying Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

"Little Sparrow" is a song by Dolly Parton. From the song:

Little sparrow, little sparrow
Precious fragile little thing
Little sparrow, little sparrow
Flies so high and feels no pain.

I do agree that the name is good and would be great for twins. However, you have the same problem here as Sirius Black. Everyone will think of Captain Jack Sparrow when you call your kids name! *lol*

Well, it could be worse I suppose, you could have three kids and their names could be: Captain, Jack, and Sparrow.

Sparrow Delaney is the main character in the book The Secret Life of Sparrow Delaney by Suzanne Harper.

Robin has been in use for a long time, but that doesn't mean that this bird name should be used on people too. If you don't want your child to commit suicide by age 13, you shouldn't use this infantile, bizarre name on them. A boy with this name would have an especially hard time with this name.

I like this name! It's very natural-sounding.
scarletquillraven  2/1/2008
I don't think that this name is too bad for a girl, but definitely not for a boy. In both cases it conjours up images of someone weak, sickly and fragile for me.

Sparrow and Robin would be great name for twins, who would obviously be known as the bird twins.

Personally, I LOVE the name Sparrow! I have been practically obsessed with this name for the last few months. I thought that I had made it up as a name, but I'm kinda glad that I found it here. It will be a beautiful name for my future daughter one of these days!
