This is a boy's name. For a girl, it should be Loganne. It's like Brian, Julian or Adrian.

QueenieGuldbaek Says:


Hate this on a girl! It's a BOY'S name!

Midge1920 Says:


Our 6 year old daughter's name is Logan, but we spell it Loganne. We thought it looked more feminine that way lol. Her middle name is Kassandra (after her Aunt that passed away) and our last name is very short and beautiful. And yes, she was indeed named after Wolverine. My husband is very proud of that lol. We're big comic book nerds and proud of it! ;) Most people don't like the name Logan for a girl, but we do and that's all that matters.

Charlie Burkhart Says:


My brother had two twin girls and named them Logan and Chase. At first I really couldn’t see them as girls names but they really grew on me. I actually like both more as girls names now.

boy name

raefrank Says:


Just one thing to consider if you are thinking of using this for a girl - prepare to meet the disdain of parents with boys named Logan. There are a lot. Even if their feelings are unjustified or outdated, it doesn't change the experience some of my friends have had.

indiefendi2 Says:


while I don't like the name, I just thought of something. How is Logan any different from Morgan? so in that case, it can be unisex to me (no matter how ugly I think the name sounds)

Yessica Says:


It feels so masculine to me.

Stephanie Says:


I ended up naming my daughter Logan. Best decision I made! She's definitely a Logan, since I just don't see the other names I liked when I look in her face.

Actually, Lindsey is a traditionally unisex name.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


I say the same about Elliot! Who would name a girl that?
(I may be a hypocrite, as I like Logan for a girl, though.)

autumnreverie Says:


This is a boy's name. I don't see how it managed to be tacked onto girls. Maybe the parents were hoping for a boy instead.

RoddyThlayli Says:


I like the name Logan a lot. In fact, I have two characters with that name, but it sounds distinctly masculine to me, and using it on a girl would never occur to me. I'm a great believer in boy names not being turned into girl names, the Lindsey, Payton and Teagan have gone.

Logan Says:


My name is Logan, and all of you have great things to say about my name! Thank You!

Guest Says:


I prefer Dylan by far (for a girl). I don't really get the Logan as a girl's name thing. Then again I love Landon for a girl so don't take my word hahahah

I love this!!

ldougie Says:


This name is beautiful for a girl! It's not too feminine or too masculine.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


I love Logan for a girl. No idea why, I just do. It's one of my favorites. I really shouldn't considering that I normally HATE boy names on girls.

Guest Says:


A beautiful name for a girl! I don't think I want to have children, but if I do in the future, my first one will be named Logan, girl or boy.
