I used to love Harriet when I was 10, until my mum said that it was an old lady name. I’ve never lost that connection and as you can see by the picture its a tortoise name and a turtle name through Franklin the Turtles baby sister Harriet (though I must admit Franklin and Harriet is a great fictional sibset). Though Harriet is rising its only top 100 in Tasmania (77), Victoria (98) and ACT (62). In NSW 2011 it was at 198 and rising so it may be joining the top 100 in a few years. In England it’s actually down 7 spots since 1997 (it fell and is currently rising again) to 67. I see the nickname Hattie as worse then Harriet because it seems to hattish.
Then again I like Alice so maybe its just a matter of time until I like Harriet again.

I must be an annoying name nerd because I LOVE Harriet. I actually think Alice and Harriet would make an awesome sibset, and we used to have some pet birds who were sisters named Alice and Harriet.
I think its only a matter of time before I like Harriet tbh I mean I used to hate Alice for the same reason
Ha, we’ve brainwashed you! *evil chuckle*
I must admit seeing the cute little Harriet turtle on Franklin made me like it a bit more *hides in shame*
