A great girls name! Not fitting for a boy

Personal experiences with the name Logan: | Edit

People often mistake me for a boy by my name. In college, I will give my ID number and the people always say I told them the wrong number because they don't think my name is Logan, I always have to show my driver's license for them to believe me.

People often tell me that Logan is a guys name, to which I reply, "Oh sorry would you like me to switch genders?" My teacher even once told me I didn't look like a Logan. 'Ill just go to court and change it, what would you prefer?' In my lifetime I've met six other Logan's, only one out of them being a girl.
