It's a very cool and interesting name!
-- DarkShizuka  11/11/2006
I love the meaning, but the name makes me think of silver and jewelers and jewelry cleaners.

British currency is Pound Sterling. It's like calling your son Dollar or Yen or Euro.

Really nice name, even though it's mostly for a boy I think naming your daughter this wouldn't be bad.

Nice boy name. I don't know how someone could think a girl would ever want to be named Sterling. I can just imagine the torture they would get.
-- Anonymous User  4/17/2007
Just a terrible name, boy or girl it's just bad.
-- stuckonstupid  10/29/2007
I know both a guy and a girl with this name and it fits them both very nicely. It really does depend on the bearer since it can go either way.

It sounds weird to me as a name. It makes me think of sterling silver, and the name has a rather ugly sound to it with the long schwa on the first syllable. And the -ing ending never really sounds good in names.

I know a girl named Sterling, but I still LOVE it for a boy.
-- Paris44  7/15/2008
ACTUALLY, my name is Sterling, and I am a GIRL. Okay! I am not embarrassed, it is a cool name to have and everyone loves it OKAY. So don't hate on my name, it is beautiful and I am proud.

Very handsome and masculine name. I love it (boy only)!
-- Beautiful Victory  11/8/2009
Way better for a boy than a girl.

Sterling Knight, the Disney channel star from Sonny With a Chance. I really like the name and it sounds even nicer with his last name.

It's too bad that it's associated with Sterling silver and English money. I love the sound of Sterling, though it might be a bit heavy for a boy to bear. This name sounds scholarly, serious, and masculine. I'd hate to see Sterling on a female.
-- Athena Nike  3/27/2010
I must be crazy, because this name isn't masculine to me at all. Perhaps it's because I think of sterling silver and jewelry and the like, but to me, Sterling is feminine. I'm not sure how well a girl with the first name Sterling would fare in today's world, but I'd totally use it for a female character. I also think it makes a great feminine middle name.

My paternal great grandfather's name was Sterling. (It was his moms maiden name.) I think it's really cool!
-- Chrila96  2/2/2011
My name is also Sterling and I'm a guy... I love my name.

I don't understand why some people here are saying they can't imagine the torture a girl would get for having the name Sterling. It sounds fine. It's pretty neutral in my opinion, although slightly more on the masculine side, and is a traditionally masculine name.

Stirling is also believed to be the township of Merlin lending credence to its possible meaning of the land of Merlin.

Sterling is an awesome name! It's uncommon but not unheard of, and I can see it on all ages fairly easily. There's no nicknames for it though, but that doesn't really matter anyway. Not everyone likes or wants to use nicknames. Overall, I think Sterling is an interesting and refreshing choice for a name :)
-- Oohvintage  3/2/2013
This was actually the nickname given to me by a good friend in middle school. The fact that it's also the name of British money doesn't bother me. I know about Sterling Silver, haha, and don't see anything wrong with that. We have people with similar names or named after places/jewels/colors so what's the difference?
-- EstherTester  4/23/2013
Wow, I am usually very against male names being used on females but in this case, I was surprised to find Sterling only listed as masculine! I know three female Sterling's and no male Sterling's, so naturally I thought it was either a girl name or at least unisex. I wouldn't have a problem using it for a boy or a girl.
-- mmcurliq42311  5/25/2013
Having the name Sterling is a duty, I hold my values high to be untarnished by society. That I can be a little star for others to help find there way.

I leave these ideals with you to be pondered.

Sterling is not mainly a guys name. I'm a girl and I love being named Sterling. It's extremely uncommon and people love how "pretty" the name Sterling is. I tend to get a few nicknames and I like them. Sterl the girl is by far one of my favorites. I get sterl, silver, ling, and a few others. I know two guys named Sterling. I do sometimes get mistaken for a guy on paper. But it's all apart of the life you lead when your name is as awesome as Sterling.
