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 sons 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.
