"I love the name. We named our daughter Pearl in 2006. My mother,admittedly, didnt like the name at first than confessed it was perfect for her. She was a beautiful gem of a child. She hasnt met another pearl in her classes yet. To us she is one of a kind, just like all Pearl's are. I only wish i was able to have given her a sister, she only has brothers, i would have named her sister Opal." Jan. 10, 2019:

"An old-fashioned name but nothing like them hideous Ethel, Beulah, Mortimer type names. I think that Pearl is due for a revival now, but only as a name for girls (it was occasionally used for boys as well a century ago and was in fact Zane Grey's real first name)." Apr. 23, 2008:
