All of the Tanner's I know are very quiet, but can be funny at times.

As far as occupational names go, this is among the least interesting. It also comes off as superlative, "Tanner than you..."

Name's Tanor, but the pronunciation is similar to Tanner, but slightly different. "Tah-ner" instead of "Tan""ner". The n isn't as sustained. The meaning and origin is different as well. My name gets compared to this one a lot, or thought to be derived from it. It's actually derived from Tanwir, which is completely different to Tanner, but I guess they rhyme in English.

I knew a few Tanners, and our very own Pennsylvania has Tannersville, home to Camelbeach and Camelback Mountain Ski Resort.

I like the name Tanner. I have heard of it being used for girls, but much prefer it as a masculine name. I actually use it as a surname in my novel.

Tanner is a very good name, it is better than your name I bet.

Tanner Boyle was the foul-mouthed shortstop with a short temper and short stature from The Bad News Bears movies.

Well my name is Tanner and I'm a male. My mother named me after the older version of The Bad News Bears after that kid and he was loud and sorta mean. He also helped the little kid getting picked on in that movie and and the new movie. He was and I am a very loving person. I hate fighting and wouldn't hurt a soul. The comment about that movie is inaccurate, and I'm 6'5"- far from short.

My name actually is Tanner. I'm an adult, and can't help but resent the little kid comments. I actually don't think it's that trendy, I never hear it. And while I'm not crazy about it, I prefer it to Tyler or Gage or some of those other names out there. I can personally say that I'm not rugged, but I am an intellectual. Also, I read somewhere that the name has been used (albeit rarely) since the end of WWII. I think I met an octogenarian someplace named Tanner. Anyway. Yeah.

I know not everyone will like the same names but I do think that you should respect someone else's option to choose that name. It's fine to say that you don't like a name but to say that Tanner sounds like a lower class person is just ignorant. I have a friend that I went to school with and she had a little brother named Tanner and they were not even close to being lower class. From the 1st time I heard that name I fell in love with it so I named my son that. When I did I had never heard anyone else with that name other than my friends brother. Now I hear it a lot more but, oh well. And that name fits my son! He is cute, funny, popular and great at sports and has a heart of gold. I know being his mom you may think I am just saying all of that but that is all true anyone that has ever meet him has fallen in love with him. So a person that thinks that the name Tanner, or really any name, can make you lower class truly, you are the one that is lower class and ignorant. Because it is the person that makes you lower class not the name.

My brother's name is Tanner and I take offense to the comment that it sounds of a country lower-class name. My brother is a very intelligent little boy. He is also very sweet and funny. Tanner was a family surname and I love it.

I like the name Tanner, although the only Tanner I know is a girl. Her parents are South African, so maybe they use it more as a girl's name over there? I think Tanner is unusual, but in a good way.

I tend to like a lot of surname/occupation names but something about this one strikes me as far too trendy, I have a hard time taking it seriously sometimes.

'Tanner' makes me think of somebody who uses way too much fake tan, and is also a bit of a dipstick.

Hurrumph, I don't really like this name on either sex, but if you insist on using it, you'd better have a baby boy to give it to instead of a girl. This name sounds masculine, it's got that -er ending and everything. The name doesn't sound pretty, and it is weird to imagine that there may be adorable curly-haired toddlers in frilly dresses named Tanner. I pity the feminine and conventional girls and young women with this unattractive, boyish name that doesn't even sound very sophistocated, more like the name of lower class country guys. It does NOT sound spunky on tomboys or androgynous girls and women, and it doesn't sound cool on any other unconventional females either.

I really like this name for a boy. It makes me think of an adorable little boy who is athletic and fun who will grow up to become a hard worker in life. Im possibly considering this name if I have a son.

I immediately think of Danny Tanner, from Full House. Otherwise, I think it's really cute.

I once had a cat named Tanner. Since then, I've really liked this name. I never thought about it on a girl, but I think if I heard it, I would like it also. So, I suppose, I like on both sexes. It's such a cute name! Definitely one of my favorites.
