Very much a masculine name!!
Usually a boys name, but we gave it to our baby girl.
Doesn't sound like a girl's name, but if it catches on and becomes popular, I guess it WILL be a girl's name!
I don't think it sounds very feminine. It's a surname, not a first name for a girl! What are these people thinking?
Not for a girl
awesome name for a girl; stop being so assigned to gender roles
