Professor River Song is a character in Doctor Who, episodes "Silence in the Library" and "Forest of the Dead". She is a female, even though the name is supposedly masculine.

River is the main character in the book Falling Fast written by Sophie McKenzie.

(This was the first time I had heard of "River" being used as a name of a person. In the book, River happens to be a female.)

River is a popular male name among celebrities. Singers Jackie Jackson and Taylor Hanson have son's named River. Actors Sean Harland Murray, Keri Russell, Blackie Chen and Christie Fan, Jeptha Robertson, Megan Gale, and Daniela Ruah have sons named River. Survivor tv show winner Aras Baskauskas' son is River. Also, there is the actor River Shields and model River Viiperi who are male. River was the name of a boy on the old soap One Life to Live. So while it is technically a "unisex" name it seems much more masculine to me.

In addition to the names listed in a comment farther up the thread I can think of several more celebrities who have named their sons River - the actor Thomas Ian Nicholas has a son Nolan River. Dallas Cowboy quarterback Tony Romo has a son Rivers and Natasha Henstridge has a son Tristan River. It is indeed a very popular name for celebrities to name their sons.

River: What in the name of sanity have you got on your head?
Doctor: It's a fez. I wear a fez now. Fezzes are cool.
~ From that one Doctor Who episode that I can't remember off the top of my head
Anyway, because of River Song, I can only see this name on a girl.
River was cool.
