Definitely boy, but I don’t think the two names flow well together.

I wouldn’t have a clue.
Sorry, I dislike them together

If I saw Devon by itself, which most people will see, because people hardly ever hear a person’s middle name, I would assume boy.

Shannon is feminine though, so I would assume the person was a girl with a boy’s first name.

Girl, but I agree with poster 1, the two don’t flow very well together.

We know they don’t flow, but the middle name has to be Shannon, and so if I’m only choosing one name for my child, I’m choosing one I love, and I love Devon.

Then why ask opinions?

Because Devon isn’t definitely set yet. I want to see people’s opinions on what gender they see it as. But even the other name we are considering doesn’t flow too well, but the flow isn’t a problem, it’s the gender thing.

Uh, Poster 3, Shannon isn’t feminine. It’s unisex.

This name is really boyish to me. Even if the flow isn’t perfect, I like them together.

I have a female cousin Devon so I automatically think female

If we said our son is called Miles, would you still all feel the same way about Devon? Thanks

Id assume a boy in all honesty, but its not clear you shouldn’t use use 2 unisex names together.
