Sawyer is a stylish, newly unisex name, used for their daughters by such parents as onetime "Rosanne" daughter Sara Gilbert. While Sawyer feels more conventionally masculine -- maybe it's the image of a person wielding a saw? -- this is one of those newly-stylish occupational names that can work for either gender. If you want something with less brawn and more brains than Sawyer, try Sayer.
