Bearing it as a surname is poet Philip Larkin.

Actually, she's Lady Larken, not Lady Larkin. Larkin seems like a feminine name to me, despite the more masculine -in ending, because of the whole lark thing.

I don't really like this name, and it sounds very surname-y and elitist.

I wouldn't name my kid this or anything, but it looks like a terrific name for a character in a fantasy book, and maybe even a good name for a band, if you think about it.

Larkin was the name Lauren Olamina gave her child in the book Parable of the Talents. Unfortunately, Larkin was kidnapped at the age 2 months old and renamed Asha.

In the book Baby by Patricia MacLachlan (of Sarah, Plain and Tall fame), the main character and narrator is named Larkin. I had never heard this name until I read that book, but I like it a lot. It sounds more feminine to me, probably because the book character is a girl.

This seems feminine to me, perhaps because I'd want to use the nickname Lark.

As a female with the first name of Larkin, I can honestly say I've never met anyone else -- male or female -- with the same name. In school I always looked at it as: "Well, even if I just sign my first name, the teacher won't confuse me with anyone else." :-).

It is far more common as a last name though. Both it and my middle name (Dyer) were taken from the surnames of two maiden aunts.
