Did you know President Monroe was actually related to Marilyn Monroe (who took the name Monroe from her mother's maiden name)?

I love this name a lot for a girl. I first heard it in a movie I have forgotten the name of. Last of the Mohicans! I have just remembered. (Remember, the chick who threw herself off the cliff? And her sister is yelling, "Muuuuun rooooooooooeeeeeeee").

I think that Monroe would be great as a middle name! Amity Monroe, too cute!

I know someone named Monroe (I think they spelt it Munroe, I'm not sure). His last name was Shume, so now whenever I hear the name 'Monroe,' I think of the word mushroom, and I think of Munroe Shume. ^^

I love Monroe as a middle name.

I hate this as a first name. It sounds awfully pretentious, and it makes me think of the unlucky character in MAD magazine.

Jackson Rathbone's full name is actually Monroe Jackson Rathbone V. He plays Jasper Hale in the Twilight movies.

I know a poor girl by the full name of Madison Monroe _____.
I had no idea this incredibly masculine name was even acceptable for a female middle name until I met her. She has the most butch, horrid name I've ever heard on a girl.
That aside, I love this name on a boy, but it sounds better as a surname.

I'm beginning to enjoy the name Monroe, for a boy. I think it's classic, mature, and ages well.

Mariah Carey named her daughter Monroe, sans middle name, after her idol Marilyn Monroe. I can appreciate why she chose it, but I don't like Monroe on a girl. I love it on a boy.

I think this is a great name! I like it, its simple, yet different than typical names like Jacob or Nick. It also seems like a great name to grow up with. I would consider this for a first or middle name.

Jackson's son is named Monroe too, I think.

I find the name Monroe to be very sexy-smart.
When I think of the name Monroe I visualize a women.
A beautiful skinny rock star chick with lots of piercings and tattoos, wearing bad ass glasses.
I love this name because of the picture it can paint in my head.
And I love the picture I see. Monroe fo sho:)

One of my cousins gave this hideous name to his daughter two years ago. It's ugly and it doesn't even sound feminine. And if it's after Marilyn Monroe, what's so goddamn bad about using Marilyn? Granted, it is an ugly name, but Monroe is way uglier and trashier.

I see this name as extremely masculine, mostly because of James Monroe Iglehart (he plays Genie in the Broadway version of Aladdin). I honestly had no idea it was even remotely popular for girls.

Such a strange name to me. A little boy on Spongebob was named Monroe.

"Monroe," which is my own name, has been a male name in my family for at least four generations. My great grandfather, born in 1854 was the first of whom I know. According to, 99.9% of the Monroes in the United States are male; I am guessing that the source is the most recent census, but I may be wrong about that. Outside of my family, I have encountered only perhaps a dozen Monroes in the last 60 years, all of them males.

My daughter's middle name is Monroe. I just realized looking her name up I gave her a masculine name. London Monroe. And her sister's name is Charleston Sofia. But I like it because they are unique.

The late heiress Casey Johnson adopted a daughter and named her Ava Monroe. Later, her fiancee Tila Tequila named her daughter Isabella Monroe.

128 boys were named Monroe in the US in 2016. It's a great name for a boy, very cute when they are little and very handsome and manly when they are grown. Terrible on girls though.

My grandfather’s name was Wilson Monroe Baker, born Feb 4, 1900. He was 72 when I was born and he and my grandmother raised me. He was the kindest, most loving “papa” I had- he was the only Papa I had. I have many wonderful memories of him and Ethel (Pilcher) my grandmother. If we had been blessed with a son, his name would have been Baker Monroe Claxton.
