There are only a handful of unisex names I don't prefer on one gender versus the other. Cassidy is one of them. However, I've only met girls so I'm rooting for more use on boys. He's a friendly, hip, Irish cowboy.

I really like this name, and I have for a long time. Glad it's usable without being over popular! I prefer Cassidy for a boy's name :)

I love this name and my husband does too - if this baby is a boy, he will be Cassidy with nicknames Cass and Sid :-)

Unisex names will always be unisex (I'm looking at you Madison). I like Cassidy on a boy.
