This name can also be given in reference to the plant, which might explain occasional feminine usage.
This is what I use to play my clarinet. I actually like this name!
Really handsome and much better than Read!
Meh, it's better than Read, but reminds me of the water Reed.
Reed has also been a female name that dates back to 1921, although it had less than 10 births a year until the 1990s. In 2018, 34 girls were given this name.
At the beginning of the school year I met a boy that was named Reed and I thought it was cute, I mean I really liked it and he ended up being ma boyfriend. But I really like the name Reed and I call him deer because Reed is deer backwards so whenever I talk about him I just say deer, lol. But I think it's cute! \(+=+)/
To me Reed (this spelling) is a nature name. I’m surprised no one has mentioned that thus far. Reed plants are tall grasses that grow by wetlands. I picture a boy or man who loves nature be it the lake or even the beach. That’s why the name Reed is on my boy's list. I believe Reed could be used for a music lover as well, as in reeds in a harmonica and flute etc.
I think Reed is the best name in the world. Personally, I think if you are cool you should be named Reed. I just sounds nice to say as a first or middle name.
Reed Morano (1977-), female cinematographer and director best known for the TV adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale.
Reed Timmer is an American meteorologist and storm chaser who starred on Discovery Channel's reality television series Storm Chasers. On the series, Reed followed severe weather with his team in their vehicle, the SRV Dominator. He previously starred in the documentary film Tornado Glory and subsequently the TV series Tornado Chasers following the cancellation of the Discovery Channel show. He was featured in an interview on a bonus feature for the "Into The Storm" Blu-ray.
I met a girl named Reed, but it sounds too manly. Like is she a dyke? Lol.
Reed spelled backwards is deer.
I strongly dislike this spelling because if you replace the 'R' with a 'P' you get "Peed" Reed Peed. Reid rhymes with it also, yeah, but you don't SPELL Peed as Peid.
My surname is Reed. I have a family crest that a friend got me while in England. Although it is an English name it is also connected to the Scottish and Irish. After all they are cousins. Both my names are of English origin but my first and last name are known in my family for all the origins. My family crest is Red, Yellow with Black trim. It has the entire meaning on the back of the crest she got for me. It is from the name Red and has several meanings and spellings. I like the spelling of Reed with the double EE. I feel like old royalty, I am proud to be a Reed with my family history. I am also a redhead which suits me and the name. I however, am not male but a female, so am glad it is a surname. I have a cousin that named her daughter Reed as a middle name since it is dying out in our family. The name Reed with either spelling is not common in my area so I feel special in a way.
Cool middle name. I don't really like it as a first.
Reed is deer backwards!
Reid is my maiden name and I think Reid or Reide is a nice boy or girl middle name, or even Reida as a feminine variation, to give tribute to the family surname. I like it with the "i" more than the double "e" spelling, as I think it looks more elegant. As a first name I think it doesn't roll off the tongue well enough for frequent use.
Reed just screams "sleazy cool" to me, just like Lou Reed, American singer best known for his work in the 60s New York band "The Velvet Underground" and his solo albums such as "Transformer".
Reed is the main, female character's name in Kate Brian's Private series.
I detest this name. It sounds like "weed" and there is a boy I am not particularly fond of named Reed, so that made it worse.
My surname! I think it's quite a handsome name for a boy.
Reed is an English surname, not Scottish (although it happens to be found in Scotland too). The meanings are: 1) nickname for a person with red hair or a ruddy complexion, from Middle English re(a)d ‘red’. 2) topographic name for someone who lived in a clearing, from an unattested Old English ried, ‘woodland clearing’. 3) habitational name from various places: Read in Lancashire, the name of which is a contracted form of Old English rægheafod, from ræge ‘female roe deer’, ‘she-goat’ + heafod ‘head(land)’; Rede in Suffolk, so called from Old English hreod ‘reeds’; or Reed in Hertfordshire, so called from an Old English ryhð ‘brushwood’.

I first noticed this name a few months ago. My younger sister has a friend, Vail, whose twin brother's name is Ashton, and younger twin siblings names are Cecelia and Reed. I also like the meaning, "Ruddy". I can just see a strong little boy running around on the moors of Scotland hundreds of years ago.
