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 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".
