    I have met a boy & a girl. I think I like it a bit more on a boy.

    I've only met one Dakota- a man in his 50s
    The name has always felt more masculine to me, even before I met him

    It's used pretty much equally for both genders but I think it's definitely more usable on a girl. For one, there are more celebrity Dakota girls than boys. There's Dakota Fanning and then there's a girl Dakota in "The Office" (I love the name on her, she's the reason I like it). Another thing is that it's easier for a girl to pull off a unisex name than a boy. It's way worse socially for a boy to appear feminine than for a girl to appear tomboyish. For girls it's kind of edgy and cool, and for boys it just doesn't work. Another thing is that the -a ending is traditionally feminine. I actually really like it on a girl even though it's not particularly my style, persay!

    I think Dakota is better on a boy. But then the only Dakota I know in person is a little boy.
    Honestly though, I've always dreamt about having a Husky named Dakota so the name on a human is a little odd to me.

    Either one. I like it better for a boy, though.
