Tiger Woods' real name is Eldrick.

If you wanted to name your girl Tiger, I suggest using Tiger-Anne.

The author Georgia Byng's daughter has this name.

Tiger is a better name for a cat.

I don't really like this name on a child.

My cousin is naming her son Tiger. (Tyger) I just don't care for it. I think that he has too much to live up too (Tiger Woods).

One of the most common and unimaginative names for a pet cat.

I honestly don't see the name "Tiger" as a masculine name, mainly because of the famous Indian princess Tiger-Lilly from the Peter Pan books, and Tiger Lilly Hutchence. I imagine this would get shortened to "Tiger" a lot, so I see it as a female name.

You'd have to be insane to use this animal name on your son. It sounds very corny and tacky. Even if it sounds cute on little boys, it's going to come off as a creepy nickname for a middle-aged man, one you would assume he has imposed on himself because he thinks he's a ''Tiger in bed''. This name isn't exactly ideal if you want people to take your son seriously.

I, personally, wouldn't use this as a male name. It would sound beautiful on a girl! Especially Tiger-Blosson or Tiger-Lily or Tiger-Rose or something like that.

Think twice before you use this name. I once met a guy named Tiger. He was very short and very skinny. It still makes me laugh when I think about the day he introduced himself. It was hilarious. He just didn't look like someone named Tiger at all. This might be a good name if you are 100 percent sure your son is going to be tall, muscular and handsome otherwise it will be ridiculous. And very very funny for everyone who meets him.

This happens to be my cat's name. I would NEVER, EVER consider naming my child this, because I would get a picture of a grumpy, fat cat whenever I would say the kid's name.

So tacky.
-- Kerules  5/24/2009
I don't mind this name but for some reason it sounds a bit more feminine to my ears. I actually prefer Tigerlily as a full name for a girl, might consider either Tiger (for a male cat) or Tigerlily (for a female cat) one day. :)

Well, it's better than 'Panda'. Ugh.

I do like tigers, but Tiger as a name is pathetic. It doesn't sound like a name. And the association with Tiger Woods is rather negative, especially considering the recent scandal involving him.

I see Tiger being used for more girls than boys.

It seems rather comical to me; I can't help thinking of "Go get 'em, Tiger!"

Famous bearer is Tyger Drew-Honey (born Lindzi James Tyger Drew-Honey), a teen actor from Surrey. I think the name is nice, but I also think that you should only name your son Tiger if your sure he's going to be very strong and masculine, I would also suggest that if you name your son this you give them a common middle name like James or William so they have a choice to go by a more common name if they dislike their first. I also prefer the spelling 'Tyger':)

What the heck? I know that just because a name is on here doesn't mean it's given to real people, but come on! Who would be ridiculous enough to name their son Tiger?! Not even Tiger woods's real name is Tiger! I can't even begin to fathom someone actually naming their son (or daughter, WTF?!?!?!?!?) this.

The German actor Til Schweiger named his daughter Emma Tiger in 2002.

I named my son Tiger 14 years ago, and he loves his name, all his friends think it is a cool name, I once had someone ask me why have you named him after a big wild animal? To which I replied I could ask you why you named your daughter after a prickly bush (Holly) I think she got the point. I have no regrets there are so many unusual names and I already know several other Tigers and they are all boys.
