Tatum- boy or girl? vs. Petal- as a middle name? vs. Read Below

I have two questions. (1.) Do you consider Tatum to be a girls name or boys name? and (2.) would Petal be too horrible/out there to use as a middle name? I am expecting a girl and so far Tatum and Petal (as a middle name only) are my favorite names. Thanks, Shanna

1. Definitely girl, I only know girl Tatums, one of whom is a very good friend of mine. When I first heard the name, I had no idea it was unisex.

2. It’s ok for only a middle. It’s not the most out there I’ve heard.

Boy. Petal, hmm - it’s not the worst but a bit too cutsey, I would pair it with a classic.

Tatum - either gender. I certainly do know of girls named Tatum, although I don’t find it very feminine sounding. But I also know of boys named Tatum, actually quite a few of late. Some are nicknamed Tate but named Tatum formally.

Petal is cute.

Petal is one of my nicknames :) short for Peta Louise
I would only use it as a middle name though

Girl only. Petal is okay, not great. Reminds me of Poppy or Blossom.

Amara Petal would be cute. Lenora Petal would also be cute.

Tatum Alexander would be nice. I also like Tatum Oliver.

Tatum is all boy to me

If I heard/saw the name Tatum, I would assume it was a girl. It just sounds girly to me, and the only Tatum’s I can think of are girls. And while I don’t really like the sound of the name Petal, I don’t see a problem with it being a middle name. It’s not the strangest name I’ve ever heard.

Tatum is all boy imo. Petal is pretty though for a middle name. Eloise Petal or Rosalie Petal would be pretty.

Until 2 years ago, I had only heard the name Tatum for a girl. I was sort of surprised to hear someone had named their baby boy Tatum. Petal sounds a little too weird for my taste. I like Tatum Aurora.

Tatum is a unisex name. I like it better as a girls name! So, use it! :)

Personally, I don’t really like Petal in combination with Taturm. I think the middle name of Tatum should be a bit more girly.
