Personal experiences with the name Shiloh: | Edit

My 10 year old son is named Shiloh. He's named after a character in a series I loved as teenager by Gilbert Morris. The name has always been traditionally a male name and I would get irrated by people who thought Shiloh was a girls name. I've met a few men and teenagers named Shiloh from Tennessee. I assume because of Shiloh battleground in TN. Shiloh was never a girls name.
