"I am a student in year 7 and i have the name Fern and i love it. I am intrested in drama. Teachers often comment on how pretty the name is." Jun. 9, 2016:
"It reminds me of Fern Walters from the cartoon Arthur and Fern Arable from Charlottes Web. I wish I was named Fern! It fits me better than Sophia as far as personality from these characters I named, but I do like my name. I like the creativity of Fern and the fact that it isn't #1 like Sophia. If I have a baby girl, i might name her Fern." Jun. 15, 2015:
"I love this name, and if our baby (arriving in August) had been a girl, we'd have named her Fern. So this time we're having a Kip, but I'm hoping that next time around we'll have a little girl Fern. Makes me think of Charlotte's Web and cool forests, and I love the fact that it's one syllable, starting and ending in consonants." Apr. 8, 2010:
"Very Pretty! I have considered this for my daugher. It's nature oriented without being too "hippie" ish, and it's quiet and dignified while still sounding soft and feminine. I also like the variation Fernley, which means meadow of ferns, though that seems like an impossibility in a forest, where ferns need shade and moisture." Jan. 8, 2007:

"I named my daughter Fern last year. I've never met another, and it wasn't until after her birth that the charlottes web connection was pointed out. I love her name, and we get mixed faces when we tell people. I often have to spell it for people hard of hearing or just unclear" May. 10, 2017:
