In Spanish and in related languages it's pronounced Crooth, not Croose.

I'm surprised no one has entered this yet (so I will) - Posh & Becks named their third son Cruz.

This is my favourite boys name. It's very cool.

This can also be a boy's name.

I like Cruz, and despite the fact that (yes, I agree) it is terribly trendy, I love the spelling Kruiz. I like Cruz as a GIRL name by the way.

Santa Cruz is a popular beach town in California.

I love the name Cruz, but I like the spelling Kruiz for a girl.

This is okay. I can't believe no one mentioned Penelope Cruz, a famous Spanish actress.

This is really a girl's name? I always thought it was a boy's name because the only person I knew with this name was male. It sounds more masculine to me.

A variant of Cruz is Cruzito.

This is traditionally a girls' name. No questions. The only reason it became popular is because people have no taste.

In much of South America this name would be pronounced CROOSS.

Cruz is apparently a last name, too, as one of my best friends has the surname of Cruz. She pronounces it like the word "cruise".

While I know Cruz can be a boys' name and don't mind it as such, I still think of it as a feminine name. It's not one of my favorites, though, since it makes me think of Tom Cruise.

This sounds like a boy's name to me and I would pronounce it Cruise. Although, I prefer this spelling; Cruz. I like this name because it is different but not totally out there.

I have met a few little boys with this name recently. Two were spelled Cruz, one Cruise. I quite like it although I could see it getting trendy in the U.S. at some point.

This name is so weird. Just... don't.

Cruz seems to be mostly a masculine name in English-speaking countries. It is in the top 1000 for boys in the United States, but not for girls.

A quotation from the user Lumia on the Name Facts board (slightly abridged): "The name Cruz in Latin America is mainly used as masculine except when used together with María - as in María de la Cruz. However, in Spain is mainly a feminine name, used together with María - as in María de la Cruz, María Cruz or Maricruz - or as a stand-alone name in remembrance of the Holy Cross. The masculine usage of this name is not unknown (e.g. Cruz Martínez Esteruelas, former Minister of Education who reformed the education system back in 70's) but quite unusual, to the point that when the American soap opera Santa Barbara was on TV, the character of detective Cruz Castillo (played by A. Martinez) bore what many in the Spanish audience considered to be a strange name for a man." So, in Spain Cruz is a predominately feminine name (and a rather old fashioned one at that) but in Iberian America it is predominately masculine.

No, this is traditionally a unisex name, although much more popular for boys than for girls (currently #284 for males and #4480 for females) I think that makes it mostly a male name, plus it sounds incredibly masculine.
