All the men I knew with this last name were boring old farts. One of them was an accountant with the worst social skills ever.

I like it, the word 'pooper' is only used by 3 year olds so maybe a bit teasing? These comments are making me think twice...

The Cooper Test, designed by Kenneth Cooper, is a test of physical fitness in which one has to run as far as possible in 12 minutes. Even though it was only meant for military use, us poor American teenagers are subjected to it.

Ridiculous, unintelligent, and unpleasant-looking name. The spelling looks just as stupid as the pronunciation sounds. The only Coopers I have known have all been arrogant jerks. I'd even pick another surname-y name, like "Tucker" over this trash.

In 2018, 2 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Cooper who is registered male with the Social Security Administration. It is the 935th most common male first name for living U.S. citizens.

Even though I love the way it sounds (makes me think of the character from Twin Peaks) it has a weak, occupational meaning. Cooper is better suited for a housepet.

My name is Cooper and I am a female. I love my name. Yes, growing up was interesting and I have not always liked my name. As a girl growing up with the name it could get complicated. I would have people make comments like "No, what's your first name?" or "Oh, I thought you would be a boy." It would get frustrating as a kid. Also kids can be cruel. I would be called Cooper the Pooper Scooper! But let's face it. If it hadn't been my name it would have been something else my weight/hair/ clothes.. etc. As I get older I have learned to really accept and love my name. I was named after my grandfather who died before my mom and dad married. I am honored to share a name. I get a lot of comments on my name and how awesome it is. My friends also call me Super Coop or Coop. I know I am the only Cooper around and I know, aside from my outstanding personality, no one will forget my name. I also know a few younger kids with the name Cooper (all boys though). Over all my name makes me feel good. I love being different. I have friends who have common names like Jennifer who hate that their names are common. So if you choose to name your kid Cooper, GREAT! Don't forget to tell them to Rock it, and be proud of it.

Here in the UK, a one-eyed bulldog named Cooper recently won a contest to star in the ITV show Emmerdale. It is a common dog's name, but I have never heard of Cooper as a person's given name, so that would seem strange to me.

I actually first heard this name from amazing actor Bradley Cooper :) I think that this is the CUTEST name for a little boy and it would age quite well in my opinion.

Cooper should not be a first name... Surnames should stay surnames and parents should try to be more unique. But that's my opinion : ))

This is the name of my dad's German Shepherd. His name was "Copper" when we adopted him, so we changed it slightly, but not enough to confuse the dog.

I would never think of this as a first name, but it's a common surname. Two famous bearers that haven't been mentioned yet are rock star Alice Cooper (a man, despite the name Alice) and Oscar-winning actor Chris Cooper.

Cooper pooper. Coop Poop. Chicken boy

PLEASE THINK ABOUT THAT BEFORE YOU SLAP THIS ONTO YOUR CHILD. REMEMBER THAT KIDS CAN BE CRUEL! I wouldn't mind this name at all if it didn't rhyme with something.

I agree with all the posters who said that Cooper is primarily a dog's name, not only because it sounds odd to me as a boy's first name, but because the numbers confirm it. In the United States, Cooper is the 12th most common name for male dogs, just behind Buster and Duke. As a boy's name, it's much farther down the list at #67, and it didn't break into the top 100 until 2004. In light of the numbers, it's not surprising that most people think of Cooper as a dog's name. I love dogs, so I'd get a chuckle if a couple named their sons Rover, Cooper, and Fido... but obviously that would be cruel, so please don't.

I think this would be a really cute and unique name for a girl! I don't think it's what I would choose if I had a little girl, but maybe for a character in a story or something it would work.

This name sounds surname-y and modern. No offense to anyone who has this name, but to me it just doesn't sound intelligent or dignified at all. Not only that, but it sounds like a dog's name! (I'm so surprised I'm the first person to say that!) I'm disgusted that "names" like this become so popular so suddenly. It'll die down in five years and become another dated, trashy fad name like so many others that have for some reason beyond me, made it into the top 100.

Normally I'm not into surname-y or occupational names, but I quite like Cooper. It's cute on a little boy without sounding ridiculous on an adult. I have a seven-year-old cousin named Cooper, and we call him Super Duper Mr. Cooper, which he loves.

To be honest, I never even noticed this name rhymes with "pooper", and really, I don't care. I think it's a pretty nice name. I don't think I'd use for any children of mine (it sounds more like a nice character name to me), but if someone else likes enough to use it on your son, go right ahead! Only little kids would say a thing like that, and your son will only be a little kid for a fraction of his life. Also, in this day and age, I think its gotten common enough that most kids wouldn't tease someone with it anyway. I think they would more likely to pick on the name if it was unpopular or something. It's a nice name, and although it's not one of my favorites, I really don't see anything wrong with it. Good choice!

My name is Cooper, and I am a girl. I first started off hating my name because it was something different and I was made fun of. However the name now fits me, I love it! I was named for my grandfather (whom I never had the pleasure of meeting). My grandfather was well loved and for me to carry that name on is a blessing. I think the more interesting the name the better. As for being made fun of, it's easy to pick on someone even with the most common of names. So please before you decide to hate something because of what it rhymes with, stop and think about how easy it is to make fun of someone else for a reason other than their name.

Coopers Brewery is an Australian beer company based in South Australia. They make boutique beers.

Because of this, I always think of it as a name chosen by alcoholics with social aspirations.

It's like, "Sure our son is named after booze, but he's named after HIGH CLASS booze".

I'm not overly fond of this as a name because when I think "Cooper" I think "barrel maker" before anything else. To me, it's like naming your kid "Blacksmith." I don't hate the name or anything, it just strikes me as odd.

Well, it is a cool nickname for a guy with the last name of Cooper. It's a bit surname-y as a first name, but it sounds pretty cool. The name is very massculine, and I find it ridiculous on any females, including tomboys and the masculine and androgynous women. Only as a nickname for their surname if it's Cooper can this be used on females without sounding like crap. And who the hell uses the word 'pooper' after the age of 15 anyway? Some dimwitted frat boy? Sheesh, grow up.

Sorry, I don't like the name Cooper either. I do think of "pooper Cooper" or "pooper scooper." Or even "poop coop." And I don't think I'm immature for noticing that it rhymes with certain words. That's the way language works. But hey, if someone else likes the name, more power to him/her.

I like the name Cooper! And yes, it does rhyme with pooper, but hey! What about SUPER? My brother's name is Cooper, and when it is his turn to clean up our dog's "mess", we call him "Cooper the Super Pooper Scooper". He doesn't get teased because of it, and it is unique. He really enjoys his name, too.

On a video game, a character's name is Sly Cooper, and Cooper is the last name. If you ask me, I would use this name as a middle name because your child will be made fun of if this is his first name. I know this because COOPER RHYMES WITH POOPER.
