Summer is such a beautiful name. To me, it sounds feminine and beautiful.

I have seen it spelled Sommer, but that spelling doesn't appeal to me.

I'm pretty sure there is an Edith Wharton book called "Summer" (I had to read it in middle school, and am now well into my twenties). As best as I can remember, its title character was named Summer.

Summer from the OC is the best. I love this name and I wish it was my name! Lucky people who have it!

Count your blessings that you don't have the name! The season jokes are so annoying. Lol.

I hate this name, sounds like a typical Valley Girl.
Eee  7/2/2007
I knew a girl named "Summerly", and I positively love that name! It's Summer fused together with "Lee", which means "field". Summer field. It's such beautiful imagery! Summer on it's own is a pretty name, too.

I always thought this name would be awesome for girls born in Summer! Some can accuse it of being trendy but I think it's cute and original, I like it.

Oh well, it's not exactly a hideous name, and we all like summers, but it doesn't sound very mature or sophisticated. It sounds a bit hippie-ish. It sounds more like a name for a child or a teen girl than an adult, and this doesn't exactly strike me as the name of a future president or a scientist or whatever. Well, at least it's not ghetto/trailer trash-like/stripper-ish.

Summer is one of the few seasonal names that I actually like. Still, I have the impression that it would fit a kid or a teenager, but may not sound too good on an adult. Actually, Summer is my landlord's name, and her name seems to fit her pretty well despite the fact she's an adult.

This name is better for a cat or dog.

CanadianChibi  2/8/2009
This is my name, and I love it very much. It's not uncommon, but not too common, and I've only met met one other Summer before. If anyone is considering this name for their daughter, I'd say not to give them a middle name like Rain or Autumn, because then it sounds a little to nature ish. My middle name is Alexis, and I think it balances out rather well. A lot of people might not like this name because it can be teased, but all I get is the occasional joke about if I have a brother named Winter.
Summah  6/29/2009
I like this spelling better than "Sommer". No offense to any Sommers out there, I still think that the name is pretty in its own way! (:

Summer is a beautiful name! I don't know how people can say that it's tacky.

I don't care for this as a name, but at least it sounds doable. It sounds kind of tacky and trashy, though.
bananarama  8/21/2009
I go back and forward if I like this name. It's pretty, but it is growing too common which I hate in a name.
italiannames  10/17/2009
It's very tacky. In England (especially) they'll call you in school 'Summer, bummer' - when people get the chance to tease you, this is what they'll call you! Be careful!
― Anonymous User  1/27/2010
I don't know why. But I love Summer for a boy! I guess it's the "er" at the end and most boys at school I know are all born in Summer (where I live). I'm writing a story and the main character is named Summer and it's a boy. A girl is fine too. But I'm leaning for towards this as a boy's name.
― Anonymous User  6/29/2010
I think it's a tacky, classless name. I picture a very annoying valley girl type. I just don't like it at all.
― Anonymous User  5/20/2011
It sounds like an old, dated name. I also agree with others who have said it's tacky. It's a very 70's sounding name for a middle aged women.
PosieZ  6/1/2011
I've always had a soft spot for this name *sigh*. But I would never actually name my own child this. However, if I met a little girl named Summer, I'm sure I would heartily approve of the name choice :) It's cute!
JanetLouise  6/28/2011
Not my favorite name by a long shot. It sounds like a name hippies would use, and it seems overly-cheerful, like the name of a hyperactive, ultra girly blond who can't stay quiet for more than a minute. It would sound funny on a goth or a serious lawyer type, and just plain weird on a masculine lesbian. Not the best choice.
Black_X  7/18/2011
One my best friend's name, it's so pretty and feminine, and suits her amazingly well.
zoe x  10/7/2011
While I would never name my child this, it is DEFINITELY the most appealing of season names, even better than Autumn. It has a fresh sound, and I like that. Beautiful name.

My name is Summer and I would like to give my opinion on it. I have never had anyone say anything negative about my name. In fact almost 95% of the time when I introduce myself to someone they compliment me on it and say how beautiful/pretty is. I find that people always remember me and being called Summer makes me feel special. I have no problem with it being a season also, it's just like names like Lily, April, Rose, Willow etc and they are very normal as names and people are used to them.

So for all the people saying it is "tacky" I wonder why everyone compliments me on it? It can't be a bad as you are making out and I can tell you it is not. I love being called Summer and it describes me well, friendly, social, bubbly! I have never been taken less seriously because of my name and it's great to have. My nickname is Sum but I only get called that every so often by family, it's mainly just Summer. I love my name and would never change it.

My name is Summer. Summer Roberts actually just like the character in "The O.C.". I hated my name when I was a kid, because children are mean and say things like "Summer-bummer" but as an adult, I love it. I get compliments on it all the time. It makes me feel unique to not have a name like sarah or Laurie. No offense against those names, but I love my weird hippy-dippy name :)
1stTimeMom  10/2/2013
'Summer' is happy and simple. It's a sweet name, but very common and there's a bit of pressure with this name. I mean, if you're not happy 24/7 people will suggest you name your name to... August.
Bluefield  11/20/2013
I love my name, and I am so grateful to have it, but there is just one thing that needs to be addressed... I personally guarantee that girls named "Summer" (or any season for that matter) have heard every. Single. Joke. Ever. Made. About their name, and I promise you that your "witty zinger" is probably about the 1000th time they've heard it... Other than that, love my name! =)

My name is Summer and I was born in 1994, my mom said she thought of the name because she liked it, and I think it suits me and my personality pretty well. I've never met another Summer before except for my friends' little 5 year old girl, whom she named after me. Also, I live in a small town and in my graduation class of 278 students, I was the only one with my name, and the only Summer in the school.
Summer_1994  5/7/2014
I love the name Summer and the reason why is the word Summer is ancient there was ancient civilization name Sumer and also it's very flexible since it's a highly used word so many people in different cultures can say your daughter's name. Also it's very whimsical like I can imagine an artist or someone very creative with this name. Also, you can say she will never be forgotten and I can come up with a bunch of middle names that go will with this name. Summer Rain, Summer Joy, Summer Victoria (means victorious Summer) Summer Lydia, Summer Veronica (means true image of Summer, Summer Marie (Rebellious Summer if you worry she won't fit into the regular idea of Summer), Summer Esme (beloved Summer), Summer Amour (Summer love), Summer Katia (Pure Summer), Summer Zoe (Summer of life) and finally a really good one Summer Eden meaning Summer of paradise. See this is at the top of my head you guys can come up with better things than I can and I know it also when I personally think of Summer the first thing that comes up to my mind is jean Summer from xmen so it don't have to be a valley girl you can be a complete nerd and love it.

Interestingly, in Arabic there is a word pronounced exactly like Summer (which is written as: ثمر) and it means "fruit".

Hmm, I'm not to sure about this name. I don't think it is tacky, just perhaps not the best name to grow up with. I would not name my child this... The word 'Summer' even when it is not a name of a person, doesn't seem like a pretty word to me.

My little sister is named Summer. It fits her personality really well. She's very bubbly. She's also very lucky. If she'd been born on the fourth of July (instead of the third), our parents were going to name her Boom Boom.

Summer is NOT a tacky name. It will be cool if you call your twins Summer and Sage!

My name is Summer Kaye. I have strawberry blonde hair, fair pale skin, and blue eyes. It totally fits my personality. I have always been bubbly. I hated it as a child, even vowed to change it someday. I was always made fun of by other kids and even teachers. I am an adult now and love my name, especially now that my last name is Moore. I get so many compliments on my name about how it sounds like a movie star. I love my name now and have decided to keep it.
Summerkmoore  9/8/2015
My daughter was born last year August 2015 and I named her Summer. I live in South Africa and have never ever heard anyone in my 27 years of age named Summer and I think it's a beautiful name. Each person has their own taste in names and to call a name trashy or hippie is so hypocritical. But yes we are all entitled to our own opinion. As a mother of two children I will most definitely not raise my children to mock other kids based on their name. Summer is not a common name in here in South Africa. But here there are so many diverse cultures and ethnic groups and the names are beautiful. If it was an odd name like paper or water, yes, I'd totally understand. But even in some cultures, people's names have a meaning that could be water or river or whatever so we shouldn't judge. And what relevance does a name have to whether you are an adult or child? So if your name is Sally it's only suited if you're a child? So what, must you then change your name when you're an adult to a more grown up name like Sandra? No! That's just nonsense people come up with. Anyway that's just my personal subjective opinion on the name.

My name is Summer. I kind of like it, but every time I look at it it looks less like a name. My nicknames are Sumsum, Winter (because I was born in February and I am super duper pale), and Summer the Bummer or Summer the Plumber. There are two other Summers in my grade and 4 others in my school and lots of others in the other schools in my district. It is so common, like wow. And those "stereotypes" of people with the name Summer, I break every single one of them besides the blonde hair. I was born in winter on a very snowy morning. I am shy and quiet and ranked smartest in my tenth grade class. I am pale, but native American so it doesn't make sense. I am not a "valley girl" or "preppy" or "snooty". So just because someone is named Summer, do not mistake her for being those things because a name is a name.
_remmuS  5/1/2016
It's okay. Pretty enough, and it makes me picture a teen girl with big sky-blue eyes and sunny blonde hair. But it feels too young for me, like the name of a teen or child rather than an adult. And I'll be honest, I kind of hate Summer as a season, due to the extremely high temperatures (100+ degrees F, 35+ degrees C where I live) and my having a bad problem with pollen allergies. So, as much as I don't want to, I do kind of associate this name with that problematic time of year for me.
RoseTintsMyWorld  5/10/2016
My name is Summer and it is not a valley girl name. I am a tomboy and not preppy at all. I was not even born in Summer, I was born in January. I don't think anything is wrong with the name Summer.

My name is Summer and I have shoulder length dark brown hair with highlights, my skin is pretty fair, not completely light though. My eyes are Hazel-brown I may not look like how you imagined a person named Summer (most people imagine someone with blonde, red hair and blue eyes) but I do look like a Summer, I was also born in the Summer. The number 1 flaw with this name is everyone asking, "Were you born in the Summer?"/"sumsum (nickname)"/"I'll call you Bummer/Winter/Fall/Spring". Ya, it could just be me lol.

My name is Summer, and if you're thinking of naming your child Summer, I'd encourage you to rethink your decision. While I have only personally met a handful of Summers, the name has gained in popularity recently. Most of the Summer's I've met are younger than me. This definitely doesn't help its "teenagery" vibe. In my experience, it does also carry the stigma of being a hippy name. I am a bit of a hippy myself, but I feel like my name makes me seem like more of a hippy than I actually am. I have also been teased mercilessly for my name. My least favorite nickname came when high school boys discovered that a certain feminine hygiene product bore the same name I did. More than anything I share the same complaint as all the other Summer's before me. The season jokes are not funny, and the old men who tell them get pissy and accuse you of having no sense of humor when you refuse to fake a chuckle for them when they tell them. That should be reason enough not to do it! If I had a dollar for every time someone laid one of these zingers on me, I'd be no less annoyed!
Top 4 Summer "Jokes"
(upon meeting me) "Do you have a sister named Winter/Autumn/Spring?"
(when I trip) "Don't fall Fall!"
(when it's winter) "Boy, I can't wait for you to get here."
(when it's any season other than Summer) "Summer, but it's winter/spring/autumn".

My name is Summer. I love my name and I don't have a problem with it. I wasn't born in the Summer, but I think it is beautiful... my family and friends pick and will call me the other seasons when it's not Summer time but it doesn't bother me at all. My nicknames are Summy, Sum Sum, and Sunshine. I love my name.

My name is Summer Blood, I know the last name throws off all the cute and innocent sound. I personally like/hate my name. I get bullied but all the boys think it’s okay to call me goth because my name is Summer and I wear a lot, and I mean a lot of black. I don’t really have that bubbly personality, I am more quiet mean and mature but I can get very crazy when I want to be. When people first meet me they always look me up and down and then say you don’t look like a Summer- it's beyond rude. I have bright green eyes dark dark brown hair with a little color in it.

One of my friends is named Summer, and I love it. I hate when people say, "People named Summer have to be born in Summer, they have blonde hair and green eyes, they've got tan skin, etc." because a name doesn't describe a person. They are who they are, and it's not like they even got a say in their name. Their parents named them, and in my opinion they named well. If you think Summer is a gross/tacky name, what do you think it'd feel to get teased, even disrespected, because of your name that you didn't get to pick? I loved this name even before I met my friend, so you can't say I like it only because I have a friend with that name.
