I don't like the sound of the word, it ends rather abruptly and has quite a harsh sound to me when I say it. I could see it working on either gender - nn Ant for a boy, nn Annie or Emmy for a girl. Personally, I'm not keen, but then I'm not a massive fan of most word names anyway. It does feel quite patriotic due to the national anthem being where I hear the word most.

Hmmm, I was just thinking about Anthem the other day, actually. I like it, and I think would work much better on a boy (reminiscent of Adam, Ingram, the above-mentioned Anselm, or Ephraim).
But then again, I really like word names! An Anthem is a song of praise or joy, which is a lovely meaning for your child, i think.
And no, I don't think it feels patriotic.Sequoia Orion born November 2014
