Thank you everyone for your help. I was surprised at the strong differences in opinion on this particular name, but it seems that the people that do like it for a boy (about 82%) really love it. Your...

That is a really good point -- about how even if it becomes a "girl" name, there will still be enough men in his age group named Rowan that he won't be too uncomfortable. Maybe the fact that it...

I would be OK with a name that was completely unisex -- like Taylor or Jordan. It's those votes for the "This is going to turn into a TOTAL girl name" that have me worried. I am working up the...

I might be able to live with 25% of the population thinking "oh, that's a girls name." If that is the percentage on Nameberry, I guess that is what I can expect in general. If you know someone with a...
I came to this board to get feedback on my choice for a son: Rowan. So far the reactions as mixed (about 2/3 are a fan, 1/3 don't like it for a boy). :( For what it is worth, it is my favorite of the...

I was NOT aware of the Disney connection. Oh no (heart breaking)!
If we chose Rowan anyways, I would pick a VERY masculine middle name (preferably one syllable) to balance out the gender issue.

(NOTE: no other name suggestions needed at this point -- just general impressions of Rowan. Almost every other name in existence has been vetoed by the SO, including all the other names in my...

These suggestions are very helpful, thank you! However, most of these suggestions have also been vetoed -- if I included the vetoed list there would be no more room on the page! (And I am trying to...

Jack -- too popular. It would bother me for him to be lumped in with all of the Jacks, Jacksons, Jaxsons, and Jaxons.
Flynn -- I tend to like names with history, and this one seems a little...
I have been considering this name as well. I like it a lot, but I am concerned that people will assume it is short for Abram or Abraham. I am also worried about the pronunciation issue: Will people...

Moe Harrison is my favorite.

I am worried about the Conan association...not O'Brien, but the Arnold version...
Reid is my favorite, but Trent and Dean go well with Wade.

What do you think of when you hear each name? Choosing a boy's name has been very difficult, so I really appreciate all of your help!
I would like to know which of these names is your favorite for a baby boy. Also, what is your general impression of each name? What does it make you think of? Thanks so much for your help!

I am just reaching week eleven, and I am finally starting to feel better. So for those of you who are sick and tired, relief is just around the corner.
Take it easy and best wishes!

I got so many amazing suggestions, it will take me awhile to sort through them all. Some of the longer ones would be great choices for middles too. I am glad I asked!

I am due 10/8. I saw/heard the heartbeat at 7 weeks -- It was amazing!

Hello! I'm newly pregnant and thinking about names. My favorite name for a boy has always been Jack. However, it seems like I already know so many little boys with some variation of this name. Jack's...
Whoa.....just, whoa. (I'm just a intermittent lurker - but STILL. So surprised.)

I do not think that Duke and John go together, and I don't think that a 1+1+1 syllable name works well here.
My favorite on your list is Elijah, but I can understand not using a name because it...
Thanks Corinne - I am happy to hear that you have always gotten positive feedback on your name. I never thought about the Connie angle - that gives me something else to consider!
That is a great poll! Thanks!
