    On the announcement of Jessica Marias's new baby girl - how do we all feel about the name Scout.

    I personally ADORE it for a girl. Will even run it by DP tonight for potential future use. Love it!!

    in a super happy place!

    Love it for a little baby, and an adorable toddler. Pretty cool for a teen. As for a woman in her 30's, or a mum, or even a nana, I'd say no. I just couldn't imagine that name on a grown up, unless she grew up to be an actress or in a band.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! My DD would have been Scout except DH wasn't that keen, he chose the first name as he was really set on a name and he was really cute about having that name. Once we had DD the Midwife asked the name and I said to Dh that he could have the first name, she then asked what the middle name was and DH just looked at me, he knew straight away what it would be: Scout.

    Scout was the little girl in the book To Kill a Mocking Bird, it is a black a white movie also. The little girl was such a cool little girl I loved it ever since, so 15 years later DD got it as a middle name.

    Always loved it, as well as Jem and mostly to do with the beautiful story they both feature in.

    Although I don't think I would use it as a first name but would totally use it as a nickname. I just have to come up with the first name that lends itself to Scout. I don't think I could go with Jean Louise.

    Maaaaaybe for a boy. But not for a girl. I don't like it at all. Kind of like Guide... (you know, Boy Scouts & Girl Guides? haha)

    Agree with Jackrose, it'd be a suitable nickname (people have the weirdest nicknames, lol).

    don't like it for either, and yep had to read To Kill A Mockingbird for Year 11 English......

    I always think of Jo Stanley from Fox FM in Melbourne when i hear it, as that's what she named her dog

    I love Scout, it's not common, it's a beautiful name and I can imagine a beautiful natured little girl who grows up just as beautiful.
    I have read To Kill a Mockingbird, one of my all time favourite books and movies

    Same here!!!! Even looked at the definition of the word lol, it's weird for a girls name. Not feminine enough for me!!!

    I know of another Scout who's a girl also - seems to suit her. I don't mind it, I wouldn't use it personally, but it's not one I'd dislike if I heard someone use it.

    To me it sounds like a dog's name..it could pass as a nickname, but I definitely wouldn't use it as a proper name.
