You will probably find you get a real mixed bag of results on this one. Personally I really like Joey for a girl but it receives such a lot of criticism.

I don’t really like Dylan or Connor on a girl. But the rest could work.

Ultimately, it’s up to you. If it’s what you want, go for it.

I’ve heard of Jordan, Jayden, Dylan, Reese, Quinn, Sam and Harley on girls and boys. I believe if you look them up, they are technically unisex names. Although, unisex sometimes is looked at like a 4 letter word around here.

Not okay on girls. There are tons and tons of nice girl names. Why use boy names for girls? I just don’t get it.

The only one that’s okay for a girl is Sam as a nickname for Samantha or Samara or something similar.

Girls are given all boy names. If that’s what floats your boat, just go through the boy section of a baby name book and pick one.

Of course, your daughter might not like having a masculine name. But if you think it’s cute, who cares?

Quinn, Sam, Peyton and Jordan are the only one that would be suitable for a girl

Peyton- Okay on a girl, but Payton is the feminine spelling
Jayden- Definitely more of a boys’ name, but I’ve known a girl named Jayden
Jordan- I’m 50/50 on this. I know about an equal number of both genders
Reese- Reese is the feminine spelling. Reece or Rhys is for boys.
Dylan- Definitely a boys’ name
Quinn- More used for girls at the moment, but I prefer it on a boy
Sam- Only as a nickname for Samantha or Samara should this be used for a girl
Connor- Never, nope
Harley- Harley is masculine, but I think Marley is a bit girlier
Austin- Austen would be the girl spelling, however I prefer that spelling for a boy.

How is Quinn suitable for a girl? I’ve only ever met boys and men named Quinn.

Sam is fine as a nickname and Reese with this spelling is okay.

I’ve heard, and prefer, Avery on a girl.

If you want a unisex name, choose a nickname that could be used for either (Sam, Jo, Alex, Charlie, etc.) and give her a feminine full name. That she can have either depending on the situation and her personality.

Ok on a girl:
Peyton
Reese
Quinn
and
Sam but only as a nickname for Samantha.
The rest are all boy to me.

The only one I like on a girl is Sam as a nickname for Samantha. The rest I’ve only heard on boys. The fact I don’t live in America probably impacts my opinion on this because I know that boy names on girls is trendy over there but where I live it’s very rare.

Peyton: Most definitely. I prefer this name on a girl. Though I’d never use it because I feel like it sounds like you’re saying paintin’ with a southern accent.

Jayden: I don’t like this name because it’s way too trendy, along with all the other names with a similar sound. However, I’ve always found all the "ayden" names to sound very girly, so I don’t see a problem with this on a girl and almost prefer it if the name has to be used.

Jordan: Another name I don’t like the sound of, but would assume it was a girl, because I’ve known more Jordan’s that are girls.

Reese: I love this name for a girl. I would use it on a boy because my first thought is always of Reese Witherspoon, and plus, it just sounds girly to me.

Dylan: I actually really love the name Dylan for a girl. I think it sounds dated on a boy, though.

Quinn: I’m not a fan of this name for either gender, because it just sounds like a slightly less boring version of the super common Lynn. I prefer it for a girl.

Sam: I prefer this one for a boy. I could see it being used as a nickname for Samantha, but as a full name, I would assume it was a boy. I think Sam is adorable on a boy, not so much on a girl.

Connor: I have heard of this being used for girls, but I think it suits boys better. So very handsome.

Harley: Hideous on both genders, but I see it used more on girls. It sounds like someone’s trying too hard when a boy is named this.

Austin: I absolutely adore this name for a girl. It’s okay on a boy.
