- Comments and insights on the name River: | Edit
I've always loved the name River. Despite my family and friends constantly arguing that River is a boy's name, I think it's quite feminine. A river's a thing of beauty, strength, and grace. I think it does very well as a girl's name.
River is a lovely name for a child of either gender, one that works well throughout each life stage. It's quietly elegant, playful, natural, and free-spirited.
