Emerson vs. Everton vs. Elliot

I have always LOVED these names, but I am really bummer as now so many people are using them for girls. I am having a boy, so as you can tell this bummed me out. Which one do you think is the best?

The Top Baby Name is...

Name Votes
Emerson 56% (10 votes)
Everton 6% (1 votes)
Elliot 39% (7 votes)


Elliot is the most masculine.

I’d use Emerson or Elliot in a heartbeat for a boy. Emerson is probably more my personal style, but Elliot is great too. Not too keen on Everton for either gender.

I’ve only know girl Emerson’s but it’s getting a lot more popular on boys. I think Elliot is cute on a girl but it’s still masculine unisex. Everton isn’t a favorite of mine.

Emerson is definitely used more for girls now a days. Elliot is on the fence but I definitely think its more of a boys name, even thought I do like it for girls too. Everton, I’ve never even heard of and definitely couldn’t picture it on a girl at all. So to me, Elliot and Everton are your two best choices if you don’t want him to have the same name as a girl in class.

I love Emerson/Elliott for a boy. I like Everett or Emmett over Everton. First choice is definitely Emerson though!

Love Emerson, my nephew is named Emerson so to me it’s all boy.

I know it’s all in the eye of the beholder, but I’m baffled by those who find Emerson at all feminine. I don’t at all. It sounds like a distinguished male college professor or author to me. Something along those lines.
