    Dakota sounds more feminine to me.

    The only Dakota I know is male, and he goes by Cody, which is a great masculine nickname. (He loves his name, and he is fourteen.) I do prefer it on a boy (more preferably on a German Shepard, but it works fine on human boys.)

    But I can also see it going female, with the nickname Koko, Kota/Koda or Kodi/Kody. These days, it is easier for a girl to pull off a masculine name than a boy a feminine one. However, Dakota is literally split down the middle gender wise. In 2012, out of all the babies named Dakota, 1032 were girls and 934 were boys. But for boys Dakota peaked at 56 in 1996, while the highest it has been on the girls' side was a decade later at 190.

    On the usability factor, I think it's one of the names that no one will give a second thought if they see it on a boy or girl.
