I knew a girl named Garland. I think it's cute, but I'd never use it because it's the name of an object.

I have to say I'm not too fond of this name. A garland is something you trim a Christmas tree with, and school kids can be cruel.

During the late 1700's, there was an infamous Irish family of assassins bearing the last name Garland. They were banished later that century.

The Judy Garland association would probably make this a difficult name to live with, as she is a gay icon, and I bet many kids in school would be aware of it. Not good in this world of heterosexist tyranny. The name sounds quite pretentious as a first name.

The Judy Garland association would be fantastic. She was a GREAT singer and a GREAT actress. She is not a gay icon. Whoever said that is stupid. I love this name. :D And I had an uncle "Gar" so I don't see what is wrong with that name? It's fantastic. I love it. :)

I know a girl by this name, named for a Garland, as in a Garland of flowers. Her second name is Peony.

I think the name is very unique, and I like it, but I keep on envisaging a Garland of flowers, so I can't really say it's too masculine, despite the fact that it sounds strong.

My friend's little brother's name is Garland. Everyone calls him Gar. Poor kid, he wants to play guitar in a heavy-metal band.

My husband's name is Garland. And It is an older unpopular name. But I believe it is a Very Strong, Manly name. It was passed down to him from his grandfather. He also has a very unique and rare middle name, "Randolph". Although I at times tell him he has a Christmas name, Garland is a tree trimming item, and Randolph is so close to Rudolph. I just like to tease him. He is my festivities. And I love his name.
