Comments for LOGAN:

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.

I know one Logan who was named after the 70's sci-fi film "Logan's Run".

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.

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.

I also prefer this name for a boy. As a girl, if my parents named me Logan I would go for a name change. This is such a nice strong Scottish boys 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.

This is my son's middle name. I hate that it is being used for girls. I think it is a great name for a boy. Although my daughter has named ALL her baby dolls Logan. :)

My name is Logan, but when I was little, I HATED my name, because I am one of the few female Logans. So all the Logan's I have ever met (except for ONE) was a boy! My neighbor's boy DOG even had the name of Logan!

This is a BOY name I think parents these days are having serious a identity crisis with themselves and it is showing with these ridiculous names.

I think this name is more for a GIRL. I can never picture a boy with the name Logan, it just sounds so girly! You can name your son OR daughter Logan but I prefer it for a GIRL.
-- Anonymous User  4/24/2007
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.
-- meanwhile  4/29/2007
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.

This is ridiculous! Logan is a BOYS NAME! It's not the least bit feminine! Parents should seriously think about what they're naming their kids. For a boy-yes, a girl-NO WAY!

Give your son a real name, not a surname for a first name! Too many X-men fans. Too many people altogether naming their kids after popular culture characters.
-- johann14  9/25/2007
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.
-- Anonymous User  6/5/2008
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.
-- aquamarina  8/19/2008
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.

This name is widely known as one of the identities worn by the character Wolverine in Marvel Comics. (He's, like, the most famous and iconic Marvel mutant ever. How does he not merit a note in the name-meaning?)

Boys name for me! But, if you like it for a girl, then it's up to you. But I'd use it for a boy (and I don't even like it all that much).

I hate that this is being used for girls. It is 100 percent a male name. I don't think a woman with this name would be taken seriously. The only unisex name I like is Drew which sounds very boy and girl like. I do like Logan for a boy.
-- Alora  1/2/2010
I don't know why everyone is making such a big deal about this name. I know one girl named Logan and one boy named Logan. The name is too feminine for the boy and too masculine for the girl. AWKWARD.

Definitely an overwhelmingly MASCULINE name. I have met three Logans in my life, one a middle aged man, one is currently a junior in high school, and one in the second grade. I think it suits all ages and I am a fan!
-- meggsxx3  3/16/2010
Errrr, I think it's a decent name for either gender, actually. I've met three girl Logans and I know about six boy Logans. All of them are really nice and the name suits them well.

This is a pretty good name for a guy, even though it sounds kind of youthful.

I also knew a girl with this name, and it totally fit her. However, I can't really picture a sweet little girl in a dress named Logan.

"Logan the Bogan" seems like a good nickname for this.

I can see why it's popular; very nice-sounding. Unfortunately, it's being used by morons for their daughters, because they think it's "unique" or "beautiful" for females. It's not. It's trendy and annoying.

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.

-- AwAriDoll  2/16/2012
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!

My oldest daughter is named Logan and it suits her well. She is now five and is proud of her name and loves telling everyone her name and that she's a girl!
-- 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.
-- Rinaeden  2/7/2013
I love this name but really wish it wasn't this popular.
-- jazzycritique  5/18/2013
This name sounds so masculine! I kind of want to gag when I hear of a female being named this; why not just name girls with girl names? Anyway, I don't particularly like it for either gender, but better for a boy.
