Famous Bearer
Personal Impression
Honestly, I really like this name. It's a good gender-neutral name for nonbinary people or genderfluid people or really just anyone considering a cute and kinda modern name for their baby. I may be kinda biased since I chose this as my gender-neutral name, but still. Even if it does rhyme with some unfortunate things, it is still a really good and unique and modern name. But again. This is just my opinion so you don't have to listen to it.

Greer. Nerdy, cute, and classy. It conjures images of someone who's on the ball.

My beautiful sister was named Greer after the gorgeous and amazingly talented Greer Garson. I love the name and so does my sister. She never received anything but compliments concerning her name. There was never any immature taunting as described in some of the comments listed on this site, even when we were children in public school. I feel sorry for people whose minds go directly to how they can be insulting to someone else. They must be terribly mean spirited and unhappy people.

My four year old cousin's name is Greer Evans and she's honestly the cutest thing ever. I think the name has a great ring to it and isn't too common at all. I would recommend the name!

Due to Germaine Greer, it sounds like something a militant feminist would name her daughter.

Greer: Queer. Rear. Beer. I pray this name never makes its way onto the charts. It's fugly, harsh and easy bully fodder. The fact that it's so close to the derogatory expression of "Queer" makes me twinge uneasily every time one uses this name.

Rhymes with 'Queer'.
Hmmm, not a good choice

Also, it sounds like a surname. A very unfortunate surname at that.

My daughter is having twin girls this summer and they have decided on Sarah Greer as one of the names. I think it is a classy, smart and cheerful sounding name.

So strong, so chic, so elegant. I absolutely love this name, but, sadly, my husband is ambivalent about it, at best.

Greer is my first name. In general I really love my name. I love how it is unique and how I am not known in school by the first letter of my last name. When my mom named me Greer she says she named me it because it reminds of a woman who can do anything. My dad's name is also Gregory (Greer is the female form to Gregory). Although I really like my name it does stink that whenever I say my name I have to repeat it.

Example Conversation:

"Hi my name is Sarah."
"Hi, I'm Greer."
"Yes, Greer"
"Oh, that's a cool name, I like it."

Whereas most people have a conversation like this:

"Hi my name is Sarah."
"Hi, I'm Michelle."
"Nice to meet You."

Another negative to the name is that it rhymes with some negative phrases...

Overall I love my name, it is something that makes me me.

I used to live in Greer, so when I found out it was an actual name, it seemed... weird to me. If I met a person named Greer all I would think about is that place.

I always thought of this as a surname but when I saw it in a baby name book I thought it okay until I learned it was considered feminine, People! Greer is about the least feminine sounding syllable one could possibly think of! Absolutely pathetic I say!

This name has grown on me recently. It's short, but not boring--and I prefer it on females. However, I wonder if it would perhaps work better as a middle name.

It makes me think of Greer Childers from that 80's workout show, "Body Flex".

Brooke Shields' youngest daughter is named Grier Hammond Henchy. I always preferred the "Greer" spelling because of Greer Garson, and the football player/actor from the 1970's, Roosevelt "Rosey" Grier.

The sound of this name is not very pleasant, and it's quite masculine for women.

I don't like this name, as it sounds too much like leer to me. I have always thought of it purely as a surname.
Katja Eidis  2/14/2008
My husband says he immediately thinks of Germaine Greer when he hears this name, and thus does not like it. Drat.
edenrowe  12/30/2007
I love this name! I also love it spelled Grier.
elysa  3/14/2007
I love this name, and definitely want to use it at least as a middle name if I ever have a daughter. Greer is a name somebody can grow up with. It suits a friendly, young girl, as well as a grown woman. It's a shame I've never had the opportunity to meet someone with this name. Greer is a name to be proud of, whether you're the bearer or the parent of a bearer.

The only Greer I know is a guy and he is called Queer Greer.

I'm not sure about this name, it is nice yet not. I guess it sounds like Ria, which is really pretty. I know a girl named Greer and I seriously thought it was Ria.

Kelsey Grammar has a daughter named Greer. :)
mum2bubba  6/23/2006
Whoa, it's odd that you mentioned Kelsey Grammer's daughter. I went to elementary school with Greer and, although we're in different high schools, still talk with her a lot. So, I guess I know a somewhat important bearer of the name. :) By the way, her surname is spelled with an e: Grammer.
wefrox  11/4/2006
This name is great! Different and smart. I always wanted to name my daughter Danica Greer. The names went so well together for me.

This name is slowly growing on me, I like it for a girl.
mum2bubba  10/26/2005
Greer is a tight name and anyone named Greer is all right in my book. There is hope to find others; just this year there is someone on my tennis with the first name Greer. It's confusing. I'm glad Greer is such a unique name.
