I know the meaning means something like "Wild Man" but I always wanted to name my little girl Sheridan. I knew a girl in Middle School with the name and she was awesome. She is also the only person I have ever met with the name. So, I would feel awesome naming my child a name that is so uncommon.

This is a pretty name. I only know of girls with this name so for me it is a girl's name, also the name seems feminine to me too.

Personally I prefer this for a boy, but I guess it could grow on you for a girl.

I've only ever heard this name used for girls, so I'm surprised that this website lists it only as a boys name. I like this name and think it would work for either a boy or a girl.

It sounds a tad cold, like a highly officious, elitist name. People who have named their sons this probably wanted to bring an extension of their ego rather than a human being with his own wishes into this world.

This is the name of Hyacinth's gay son on British comedy Keeping Up Appearances.

Unfortunately, the first time I heard this name was on a cheesy soap opera ("Passions," which I believe has gone off the air). However, I didn't let that ruin the beauty of the name--and it is beautiful.

This does not sound like a feminine name.

Let's not forget Sheridan, Wyoming.

Unordinary but likeable. It really sounds masculine to me. I think it suits a male politician or someone with a high position because it sounds very upperclass to me.

This name is pretty kickass on a girl. I guess it's alright for a guy too.

The Irish origin of Sheridan means "wild one."

I think Sheridan is a beautiful name for a girl. There are many towns in the United States called Sheridan (likely due to it being a common surname when the towns were named). These towns are in Wyoming, New York, Montana, Indiana, Colorado, and Michigan, to name the ones I know of. My daughter is named for the one in Michigan, which her father and I have a personal connection to.

Sheridan Hope was the name of Sherlock Holmes in an early version of Arthur Conan Doyle's novel "A Study in Scarlet" (then called "A Tangled Skein").

Reminds me of stripping wood, for some reason. Like the sound of it too, could easily be quite popular.

Everyone called Sheridan are amazing, it's been proven.

My daughter's name is Sheridan. I was under the impression from my research on the name that it was a unisex name of Irish origin and means "wild one". First heard the name on passions as well.
