As far as I remember the name is not only Scottish. Clan Logan was a long time ago split up and the name didn't really exist any more. But people from both Ireland and Scotland went together after a few hundred years and remade Clan Logan. Wherefter it became one of the biggest clans in the whole of Ireland and Scotland.

this is just stuff i have heard. and i havnt checked it to se if its true. but thought id let you know anyway. btw, great page.

Ah and btw, as u writte the name is origenaly pronounced in gealic, but you didnt writte that its pronounced somthing like: "Lohren".

I think this is a wonderful name! I liked it so much, I named my son Logan. In doing my husband's family history, I found that one of his uncles who was born in the mid 1800's carried the same 1st name. This name is gaining great popularity in the area where we live. My son is 1 of 3 Logan's in his class.

If I have a son, this is what I would name him. Definitely a masculine name - very Scottish. Short & simple.

I love the name Logan for a boy, but I really do hate the name Logan for a girl.
― Anonymous User  2/10/2006
I have to say that a name with the meaning "little hollow" does not sound extremely masculine. When I think of a hollow, I think of a beautiful scenic area with wildflowers blowing in the breeze. I would use this name on a little girl but never a boy.

Hi, my daughter's name is Logan, but I spell it Loughen, just kinda different!

If I read the name Loughen, I would pronounce it like 'LOWG-hen' or 'LOOG-hen', not LO-gan.

Logan is a very nice name. It is rugged, and handsome. I definitely like this name for a boy not a girl.

My name is Logan and I love it just because it's an uncommon name. My Grandmother's maiden name was Logan and my dad liked the movie "Logan's Run" so it came out of that. I've known one girl named Logan, but she went by the name Libby. She thought it sounded too strong and she wanted a girly name.

My parents were sci-fi buffs, I am a female named Logan after Logan # 5 on Logan's run. I have always liked my name, and apparently many others do as well. I have had several children named after me. I think it works well for either gender.

I really lilke the name Logan. I think it is acceptable for either a boy or a girl, although I prefer it for a boy. To me the name doesn't describe some brawny, buff, ultra-masculine man; it more identifies a handsome--though more "sweet" handsome than "hot" handsome--more thoughtful boy, sensitive, but not feminine, and quiet, but not timid. I really like this name.

Logan, like Loegan and Loegaid and Leucain and perhaps later Lucien may be of Celtic origin: Some of these names appear in the Irish legend of the Ulster Cycle: the father and the charioteer of the hero Cuchulain are named Loegaid and Loegan or Laeg. These names come from the Celtic god Loeg or Lugh or Lugus.

My first name is Logan, and I'm a girl. I've hated growing up with it (I was born in 91) because I've always considered it a boy name only. My advice - solely for a boy, please. I've never met any other female Logan, by the way.
― Anonymous User  10/4/2007
Love this name. I would love to use it, even though I try to shy away from overly popular names. I just love it enough that I think I may not care how popular it is.

I wish people would stop taking names like this and using them for girls, because it's really not cute. It's annoying, there are plenty of girl names and every year it seems like another boy name goes right out the window. Logan is awesome, but really, it's a boy's name.

Hi. My name is Logan and I'm a girl. Most people think it's for a boy but now it's on the girl's side of the baby book so now other girls have this name too.
Logan G  11/7/2007
This is my oldest daughter's name and we found it on the girl's side of the baby book, ergo it is a girl's name. Her middle name is Brooke and I think it flows nicely. She loves it when she meets new people, expecially when they have to type in any information in on a computer, they always think the computer is messed up because it says she is a girl. She always tells me, "Mama, the joke's on them." And she's right as it is a girls' name too.
Patricia Underwood  12/1/2007
How many boys do you know named Logan? I know 3, and I also know 4 girl Logans. So really, the girls pretty much out-weigh the boys huh?
Patricia Underwood  2/3/2008
I actually prefer Logan for a girl. Even though more boys have the name, I like it. It's a unisex name so I find no problem with liking it for a girl.
jasmineenimsaj  2/6/2008
I'm more of a purist! For boys only, please!

My name is Ashley which is traditionally a BOY name and I HATE it. Please, name boys after men, and girls after women. When you give a girl a male name, you take away the masculinity of the name, but it never QUITE becomes feminine. It sort of staggers in the middle and becomes rather 'butchy'. I wouldn't want my daughter growing up with a name that we hear repeatedly as a MALE name. That would be very confusing I think. But for my situation, I shun pop culture and look to the old stories and mythologies (and many modern fantasy and non fiction tales) for entertainment and will find myself reading to my children out of old tales of our distant peoples. So for me, something like Logan or Tristan etc would come up repeatedly as a MALE name or masculine sur-name. That wouldn't fit a girl!
― Anonymous User  2/11/2008
I feel that this is a more masculine name, but that's probably because I immediately associate it with the X-Men's Wolverine.

I don't mind at all if you use it for your baby girl, and I certainly won't berate you for it. :]
FMRadio  3/9/2008
I like this name on a boy, and I used to hate it on a girl but since meeting a girl Logan for myself, all I can think when I hear the name is 'spunky, sweet, cute, pretty, outgoing,' etc.
Belle  3/11/2008
I think this is an absolutely awesome name for a boy, and if it wasn't so hideously popular, I wouldn't mind using it myself. For a girl, it is too masculine, and it would only really suit tomboys and edgy young women with an androgynous or indie look. I can't picture this on any ordinary middle-aged woman.
slight night shiver  4/27/2008
Considering that the height of popularity for this name for girls was in 1996 at 257, while for boys it was 42 that same year, I’m going to have to agree with the people that say this is a boys name. To me the “gan” sound is just to masculine for a girl.
― Anonymous User  5/2/2008
Actually, in 1994 there were 879 girls named Logan, which is a clearly larger number than 257.

It was *number* 257, the 257th most popular name for girls. And the 42nd most popular name for boys.

I love the name Logan, especially since Veronica Mars. It's not my usual style, although I do like Cameron as well and that's another clan name. It's just handsome. There's a likeable quality to it, it's not out to make a statement or to challenge. That's refreshing. I like the meaning; it makes me imagine a boy who loves being out in nature.

Celtic/Irish Gaelic origin-a word which means lovely meadow.
felishad277  7/6/2008
I used to really like this name for a girl, but now I think it fits a boy more than ever. It's way too masculine sounding for any girl (tomboys included).
jasmineenimsaj  7/17/2008
Excellent example of a unisex name. I was six years old when I first heard the name Logan (a little girl in my grade had the name), and that was in the mid 1980's. I still love this name 2 decades later.

I feel people should appreciate the value of a unisex name, and I don't understand the battling over what "should be" masculine or feminine. The name being used on a girl should not "ruin" it. The fact that this was a family name and Clan name expresses to me that it is a name for everyone.

This is another soap opera name. Logan is one of the soap families' surnames on _The Bold and the Beautiful_. Also, the popular character Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) is sometimes called Logan.
I personally can't stand this name and equate it as the painfully overused masculine version of the vapid feminine Madison and Addison.

Common as dirt. Your kid would be known as Logan B. (or whatever the last initial i) throughout his (or her, I guess, though I have yet to actually meet a female Logan) schooling career.
mrose19  7/22/2011
I think Logan is a very, strong, handsome, and masculine name to call a boy. It will suit all ages and all personalities. It is gaining popularity, but I wouldn't worry about it. These days, naming is like high school. EVERYONE is trying to be different, and the only way to truly be unique is to choose a name everyone can spell and pronounce.

I could easily see myself calling my son Logan, I do like it on a girl too. I can't picture myself naming my daughter Logan, BUT, I think it's a cool unisex name that's been established for a while, like Jordan. It's cool, spunky, and fun on a girl.

I can't understand how anyone can believe Logan is a girl's name. It doesn't sound the least bit feminine, and a girl with this name would go through life having to correct people who first believe she's a guy, or are confused about her name. I've never met any female Logans. I've never pictured this for a grown man either, but that's because all the Logans I've ever met are under the age of 10.

My son is named Logan who was born in 1990 (Australia). I had not heard the name before so I checked its origin and meaning. At the time I was informed that it was Irish Gaelic and meant "from the hollow". As the meanings of names are very important to me and that my Logan was delivered via Caeserian I thought the name was very apt! He didn't like his name growing up, he wanted to be a Matthew like 30 or so other kids at his primary school. It was awesome as he never had to use his last name on anything as he was the original Logan as opposed to all the Dylans and Matthews and Jacobs (Jakes). I have heard the name more often recently (three times in the last year I have seen little boys named Logan). I do not see Logan as a unisex name, as it even sounds masculine. I think names should be picked for their meaning and not some soapy star character or movie title! Have a bit of imagination, as our kids are stuck with our decision for life!

Karen Callahand  4/15/2012
Everyone has the right to their own opinion of course, but I have never understood why people see this as a feminine name. It seems very masculine to me and there isn't even a somewhat feminine nickname for it (like Maddie for Madison or something). The only argument I can sort of understand for the "Logan is a feminine name" crowd, is it is similar to Regan, which is a girl's name. Personally, I don't really like this name for either sex, but it seems MUCH better suited on a boy. All of this is just my opinion of course. Hahaha.
spaz123  7/8/2012
I love this name. It has also stuck out to me, and if this baby turns out to be a boy I think we will be calling him Logan! I live in Australia and the name is not as common here, I don't know any Logans. My hubby will be easy to convince as he is a big Xmen fan.
silveretta  7/10/2012
This name is forever poisoned for me because it was the name of an absolutely horrible bully in junior high. Besides my personal association, the name just doesn't sound that flattering or strong. I also don't get why so many people are fawning all over it as a girls' name. What's next, naming your daughters John and William?
Anyechka  10/13/2012
I love this name! Completely adorable for a little boy. Nickname "Logie" or Logie Bear like that cartoon "Yogi bear" - that is sweet. Then growing up Logan is a very masculine and adult sounding name.

My name is Logan and I am a girl. It’s funny how some relate this name with masculinity, because I am extremely feminine. I also find it strange that some assume that girls with the name Logan are deemed to face humiliation and gender confusion growing up. From preschool, I was always the only female Logan in my class, but this never bothered me. Even at a young age I was aware of my gender and never really questioned the name given to me. I would have teachers from time to time state that they expected a boy because of my name, but that never made me, as a girl, feel less feminine. Growing up I was never made fun of or ridiculed because of my name, in fact most liked my name, even the boys my age who were named Logan thought it was cool. It’s sad to see people getting so worked up over girls being named Logan, declaring that it’s too strong or too powerful to be a "girls" name. Being a girl, I am honored to have such a strong and powerful name because that is what I aim to be, a strong, powerful women. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion of course, and I believe that Logan is a beautiful name that suits both boys and girls and it can be unique and/or traditional.

Logan Bruno was Mary Anne's boyfriend in the "Baby-Sitters Club" books. He was portrayed as being really nice and good-looking; given the popularity of the series and the fact that its readers are now of childbearing age, I wonder if the positive associations with the character have anything to do with the name's current popularity.

It devastates me that Logan is labelled as unisex according to this site.
Logan is definitely masculine-much more suited to a boy. I picture it on a cute little boy with dark features to an older, attractive male.
I love this name for a boy soo much (loved it for years)
On a girl it's a joke and downright cruel and harsh. Should be a form of child abuse in my book!

Logan will always be a males name in my book (: ♥.
ThatMazerunnerfan  9/4/2014
My son's name is Logan. We wanted a strong Scottish male name. While the baby books may have Logan on the female side in this day and age, it will always be of male origin. I've come across a lot of male Logans and only one female named Logan, and that was 14yrs ago.
anne69  11/11/2014
If this name is common that is a surprise to me. It seemed that for a few years 90% of babies born both girls and boys were named Jayden. I have never known any Logan. But I think it may be that perfect balance between unique, but not over used, like Mary was in the mid 1900's.
CrazydogladyXD  11/13/2014
It may seem shallow to name someone inspired by pop culture, but who cares. What, are you just going to name everyone born after a previous relative? I looked at my husband's family history and there are like countless Richards and Kirks. If something inspires you, or has a personality you're looking for, go for it. I personally wanted a masculine name and wolverine is all sexy muscles and side burns! I would name a boy this, and I'm sure he would be excited to brag that he's named after wolverine.

A girl can have it but it's a boys name. Whether you want to give a girl a boys name is a seperate issue. Some people think it's cute to give girls tomboyish names.

Honestly, all you people saying Logan is only a boy name, and that parents need to think about what they are naming their kids, that is a very cruel comment. My name is Logan and although it is not as common in girls, I think it is better for girls. "Hollow Log" does not make me think of a boy. It seems like a very elegant name and it would fit either a boy or a girl, but I think it is a very unique name for a girl.

I work with a girl named Logan and she is totally amazeballs. If she had a different name like Emily or Cassandra, I'd be like "that's super lame". Do I make fun of her name anyway? Definitely. Did I make her a "Logan's Run" blinking hand gem thing for her 30th birthday? Absolutely. Is comparing her to Hugh Jackman's X-Men portrayal of wolverine a frequent occurrence? You bet. But let's not kid ourselves, Logan can totally be a girl's name provided that the girl in question is friggin' awesome. Planning on having a lame girl who isn't awesome? Well then, this is not the name for you.

It's funny how the majority of these masculine names for girls are only popular in the states. I can't be the only one seeing it. Take the damn hint America.
Logan is a boys name. Go find something else to name your damn daughter. Logan is boy boy boy. Not just my opinion but just a straightforward fact.
I would use this name for a son within a moments notice even if it became too common among girls (god help the Americans) Logan will never be feminine. And if I do ever name a son of mine Logan and anyone asks about the gender upon discussing the name, I would turn to them with a blank gaze and wouldn't even acknowledge their mentally challenged question.

Ok. So apparently a lot of people don't like the name Logan for a girl and I don't like how society has labelled the name Logan to be a boys name because my name is Logan and I really like my name. Other then the society labelling Logan as a boys name because people have always said that Logan is a boys name from 1st grade up. I really don't appreciate that is how my name is getting labelled. So if you're one of those people that don't like the name Logan why don't you like it as a girls name? I myself think it's the best name either way and no matter what anyone says I won't change my name because of society because Logan as a girls name is getting more common than you think.

The name Logan actually means Lowlander. The clan split in Scotland and some took to the highlands, others to the lowland. Those were named the Logans. This includes my ancestors, Sir Robert Logan of Restilrig. He helped put the Queen back in power and was thus awarded land, titles and money. When I was a little girl I loved my last name so much, I always knew I would name my first son Logan, especially since my Grandmother believed in using lineage to name the children in our family. I did name my first born Logan Anthony Deutsch. Every part of his name means something. I love that.

My daughter is 18, her name is Logan. She has always loved the fact that her name is unique and strong. She has always received compliments on the fact that she has such a beautiful name.

Logan is a beautiful name, that is considered unisex. I am surprised by all the negative comments people have about naming a girl, "Logan." Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I don't understand the need to be crass, judgemental or rude. In an educated society facing real issues such as properly funding education, addressing equal rights, fighting poverty, ending hunger, war on crime, etc... What a person names their own child is really no one else's business. Most importantly, sharing opinions should be done in a respectful manner, to encourage a healthy exchange of information and views. In my experience over the years, it's the person who makes the name! The origin of Logan, can be interpreted in many ways, by different people. It may be considered as feminine or masculine. All the male and female Logans I have met, are amazing individuals, well-suited to their name. The boys were friendly, energetic and masculine; while the girls have been strong-willed, outgoing yet very feminine. To those who generalize and stereotype the idea of naming a boy or girl "Logan" - Shame on you! If only you were fortunate enough in your life to experience the beauty in all the Logans out there, perhaps you would be less bitter. Good job to all the female Logans who shared their point of view on this website. You were all a true testament to the great women/girls behind the name "Logan." - Continue to proudly represent your name! This is a salute to all present and future girls named "Logan." You are a treasure to your parents, friends and people blessed by your presence. To all the boys named "Logan," you are in great company!

It's okay! It's just a discussion about names... will we not all survive it? Although, I do find women in particular have quite a lot of strong name opinions. People have a lot of emotion about names... it's O-kay:) As a teacher, I have to catch myself on my own bias against names like Cody and Cory or Ashley and Jessica.
I only came to this site to understand why the name Logan is so popular and find out its meaning. We have encountered it among 2 sets of twins on my sons different hockey teams over the years. I don't get the attraction to it. It has no personal draw for me. In fact, if I'm being honest... not really that fond of it because it's quite ordinary given all the attention it's had over the last few years. I do find name trends interesting.

I see a sturdy, yet welcoming young lady.

I LOVE this name! I have so much respect for it. Definitely a name possibility for a future little boy of mine and definitely a boys name; No doubt about that. Logan is not a fitting name for any female. It just isn't. Why name your daughter something that will make others suspect that she has male plumbing down below? Seriously?

My name is Logan. I'm a girl. So what if girls/boys are called it. I believe I have a very unique name and I love it. Logan Marie. Sounds feminine enough to me. It's like other names that can be used for both. I have gotten so many compliments for having Logan as a name. I would love to name my daughter Logan. It all has to do with the middle name.

Logan is a boy name, people.

I really like this name, but because of its overuse and popularity I'd never want to use it. It sounds like the name of a real joker of a guy who's a little immature at times, but is always well-meaning. I don't think it sounds even remotely feminine, to be honest; it's not a terribly masculine name, but it's not feminine, either.
RoseTintsMyWorld  5/11/2016
All the baby name books and websites list this name as unisex. I don't know why people are fussing about whether it's for boys or girls but they don't have a problem with other unisex names like Charlie, Alex, Harlow, Morgan, Lindsey, Casey, Harley, Tracy, or Joey.

Logan for a girls' name.

To all the lovely Logan's who are girls...
Do not... for one second... let anyone's opinion of your name impact you in a negative way. Saying that Logan is a boy's name (only) is not true. Just look at how many of you popped up to say so. You will always find people who don't like this or don't like that and need to share their negativity on comments like this. They need to because of their own stuff... NOT you or your beautiful name. Incidentally, I spent three years trying to have a baby, and when I finally did, I named her Logan. Others may object. They always will. Let them object. The only way to come out on top is to love your beautiful name anyway... rise up above all that whining, Logan!

I like Logan for both a girl or a boy!

My 2 year old daughter's name is Sawyer and our daughter who will be born in March will be named Logan!

I am all about doing things that are different. If you raise a strong, confident daughter, she can carry any name!

I think Logan only suits a boy.

I know a couple of girls named Logan and 1 boy with this name. I used to like this name but don't like that it's becoming unisex.

I have a brother named Logan and I can't imagine his name being something else!
If you are deciding on a name then you should definitely consider the name Logan!

There are two translations for Logan. One is very common meaning a hollow in the land, be it rugged mountain or grassy glen and is Laggan. The other Loughan and if people do some digging it means Spear. It's a warriors name.

With the release of the movie 'Logan' early this year, I predict the popularity of this name is gonna jump a few positions. I already know of one person who explicitly named her son Logan because of the movie.
Icycoldhot  8/24/2017
Very, very masculine sounding name. I can't believe it's used for girls as well. I don't like this name anyway, but it is way worse for a girl.

So my understanding of how I got my name, was when I was still in my mothers womb and we were flying back up to Alaska. As the flight attendant announced that we were passing Mount Logan, my mom tells me she was looking at it, and I kicked hard in a unique way. She looked down and asked about the name Logan, and I kicked again. It comes down to just a strong theory that I had wanted to pick that name...

Who knows. Personally I love my name. I am Scandinavian with some serious red hair, sort of figured Logan was Scandinavian. Despite the fact I love my name, when I hear it means hollow, I feel rather insulted. I am not hollow!... I'm just upset that it feels my name is demoting, as if I am a servant who is hollow inside. Why is it a name I love so much, but feels very demeaning, when I realize I have the name of a hollow servant?

This is a last name, not a first name and unless it is a family maiden name, it's silly to use it as a first name. It has a coat of arms for God's sake. It's a clan name and has an extensive history of warriors who fought for land. Stop taking people's last names for your children. It's ridiculous and confusing to give your child two and sometimes three last names. Only in America.

My name is Logan. I am a boy. I was named Logan because of "little hollow" which my mother thought matched the small dimple in my chin. I am also half Scottish. I like the name Logan as a unisex name and being born in 2000 I just finished school where I was the only Logan.

It's kind of trendy. Same as Owen, Liam, and Noah. All of which are names I am not particularly a fan of. Not for either gender, especially spellings like Logann and Loganne.
XironDarkstar  1/12/2018
Funny thing is, I am a girl and my name is Logan and yes I hate it but it's still a masculine and/or a feminine name in my opinion.
Aesthetic hottie  1/13/2018
For me personally, I like Logan as a girl name. Now, why are all of these sick dudes against unisex names and girls having boy names? I have two words for you guys: WHO. CARES.
I know a girl named Logan and she is nice, I don’t know any information about her liking her name, but I personally think it sounds a little bit weird on a boy, probably only because she is the only Logan I have known in my life.
KennedyandKinley  2/20/2018
My name is Logan and I am female! I never used to like the name because every other Logan I had met was male! I personally think it is a very girly name!
Logibear  3/8/2018
I think this name is way too trendy and popular; there are like 6 Logans in my grade alone. I don't really understand the appeal as I don't particularly like the way Logan sounds or looks (especially for females).
TheGreatCornholio  3/21/2018
I’m a girl named Logan and I love it because it’s so unique and I like having a name that doesn’t specify a gender because it makes me feel like I can be as girly as I like or as Tom-boy as I like. I think gender neutral names allow people to feel more free and happy. I love it!
