Carter is an awesome name for a boy.

I love this name. If I ever have a son I want to name him Carter Reilly.

I'm drowning in Carters! I'm a Carter, I go to school with a Carter, I have a cousin named Carter and a great uncle named Carter!

Nick Carter of the band the Backstreet Boys from the nineties. Also his younger brother Aaron Carter, also a singer.

Carter was a character in the 2nd series of the BBC's Robin Hood.

This name sounds a tad too surname-y for my taste, and it makes me think about the ghastly Nick Carter and his heinous spoiled brat of a brother Aaron.

I love this name even though it is a surname.
-- number1212  4/28/2008
I hate this name. It makes me think of the spoiled child of yuppies. And it also makes me think of that annoying Backstreet Boy, Nick Carter, and his annoying little brother.

My name is Carter and I'm a girl. I love my name, but I am sick of people thinking I'm a guy when they first hear my name. I think it works on both genders.
-- a.person.  12/18/2008
Hmm. I guess it is a nice name, but to me the meaning is laughable.
-- emmiix3  2/12/2009
I've always liked this name. I don't know why. It's just so cute! I think it works on both genders.

Carter is my name, and I'm a male. No offense to females with the name, but I think it is way too masculine for females.

Seriously disgusting for a girl and a boy. Plus it rhymes with something VERY, VERY obvious, go through the alphabet and you should find it.

Handsome. Magnificent... on males only. It should be used sparingly, though. "Carter" is a name that has potential of becoming extremely trendy... thus ruined.

The first thing I think of when hearing this name is the Backstreet Boys. This name would go well on a popular kid, athlete, or member of a boy band.

Carter Oosterhouse: TV personality.
-- GibsonGirl  8/14/2011
I love the name Carter. It should, however, be used only for boys. I had never considered Carter anything except a surname until Carter Oosterhouse became a TV personality. I have since fallen in love with the name Carter.
-- GibsonGirl  8/14/2011
I'm definitely not against surnames as first names, but Carter is a bit too much for me. It just doesn't sound like a first name, much less so for a girl. And then there's the misspellings. Karter, Cartor, Ckartur...

Carter Heywood was a main character on the American television series "Spin City".

Unfortunately, I know a girl with this name. It sounds so completely ridiculous and masculine as a girl's name, no idea how anyone would get such an idea to name their daughter Carter!

I knew an Irish family with a Carter in it... I wasnt even aware that it could also be used for a girl and now that I know I actually think it can work for girl. I don't think it sounds too masculine. It flows nice.
-- blueeyesparkle  2/24/2013
This name sounds really masculine. I would never use it on a girl.

The name Carter was actually given to 243 GIRLS in the US in 2012... Crazy.
-- Oohvintage  7/16/2013
I like the name Carter for both genders but I don't think the name will grow up with them.
-- Melys11  1/11/2014
I love this name for a boy. It's masculine and fun. It sounds absolutely ridiculous for a girl, though; she'll spend her whole life having to correct people.

Love this name but I am NOT proud to admit that us Americans seem to use a lot of masculine names for girls. Devestates me that Carter is listed for girls as well, even if the number is in the 800's.
Carter is blatantly a males name. No exceptions.
