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.

I like that name. I think it sounds pretty.

Summer Glau is an actress, best known for playing the character River Tam in the Firefly TV series and the movie Serenity.

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! (:

Nicole Eggert played Summer in "Baywatch".

Summer is a beautiful name! I don't know how people can say that it's tacky.
-- Anonymous User  8/8/2009
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.

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.

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.

A lovely underused name! =)

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