My grandfather's name is Clair, after the surname, and he was in American Women in Science because they thought he was a girl.

I've never heard of anyone with this name and definitely not any guys. If you're thinking about naming your son this then you might wanna choose a different name, otherwise he'll be picked on at school for having a girl's name. Or maybe you could spell it with a "K" that looks more guyish plus it's supposed to sound like that.

I love this so much more than Claire.

Clair de Lune means moonlight in French. It's been used as a title for poems, plays, books, songs, etc.

I absolutely cannot imagine this name on males. I've only heard of females named Clair, mostly Claire, and the name sounds feminine to me. It even sounds quite clear, literally. A very beautiful name, short, simple, but not too minimalist. It's overused and thus quite bland, but I still like it, it's elegant and sophisticated.

I much prefer Sinclair to this.

This is my name and I'm a girl! I like that it's spelt a little differently than Claire or Clare because I went to school with about ten of them.

Lake Saint Clair, the "sixth" of the Great Lakes, is named after St. Clare. Note that in French, however, it has an -e to it (Lac Sainte-Claire).

I do not like any variant of the name Clair, Claire, etc. It is too feminine for a man and to mannish for a woman. I'm a woman and this is my middle name. Clair is the official spelling on my birth certificate, but when I can I write it as Claire. My first name is Amanda and I hate that too, but it's a little better than Clair. The name Clair/Claire reminds me of a frumpy, mean weirdo teacher I once had.

In English, this would absolutely not work on a boy. It would be perceived as a misspelling of Claire, therefore a "girl name".

Clair is the name of a Dragon-type Gym Leader in the Pokemon games. In this case, it's a female character.

I can't see this as a masculine name, especially because I played the Pokemon games and their Clair is a woman. But it does sound cute. I still prefer Claire, though.

Not given in France or very very very rare.

Traditionally, this is the masculine form of the name; the feminine form is "Claire".

I'm a guy and this is my name, same spelling. I was born in 1997 and I've only seen a really old guy with my name. It's awkward when I first meet people. They either laugh, make a weird face or don't care. I like it because there aren't many guys with the name so it doesn't hold any preconceived notions but I hate it because it gets confused for a girl's name. I've thought about changing it, but it would cause more problems than solve and it's grown on me.

ClairMati & the other Male Clair you ROCK!
& the neg naysayers - Get out more! Clair was my friends name, a VERY butt kicking Masculine Vietnam Vet & Detroit Police Undercover Vice ALL MAN MAN! This is the greatest French name besides my son's name Michel! People in the USA are so narrow minded. This is a Man's name - CLAIRE is a women's name.

A nice nickname for Clarence or Sinclair.

This sounds like a girl's name. I'm pretty sure guys will get teased for having a girl name.

The feminine form is supposed to be "Claire".

My name is Clair. Yes I am a male. I was born in 1958 in Ohio. My father named me after his brother whom had the same name and spelling. My uncle was born in Pennsylvania. Over the many years I have had many wild looks from folks who I had met. As of today I still experience the same questions.
