Feisty yet floaty, Piper is an occupational name that simply refers to a player of pipes and is a pretty, musical choice for baby girl. In legend, the Pied Piper of Hamelin was said to entrance and captivate children and animals. The most famous Piper today is probably Piper Chapman, the inmate and protagonist of the Netflix series "Orange Is the New Black" who is based on real-life writer Piper Kerman. In 2000, just two years after the debut of the TV series "Charmed," Piper entered the top 1,000 baby names for the first time—no doubt helped by the portrayal of a witch named Piper.
