Sullivan can also be used on a girl. I know two female Sullivans.

I don't really care for the name "Sullivan," but I think it would make a nice middle name. Also, I ADORE the nickname "Sully!"

This sucks as a first name. It sounds pretentious, yet not very high class.

A GIRL at my school has this name. I don't like it at all. Sounds like a last name.

There should actually be two Ls in the original form of this name: Súilleabhán, Ó Súilleabháin. The second L comes from the D in _dubh_, for what it's worth: _súil_ 'eye' + _dubh_ 'black, dark' + _-án_ (a diminutive ending). [noted -ed]

This name has a nice ring to it, like Donovan.

Always been sort of neutral towards it, as it's my surname. However, I think it's a bit heavy sounding, and not really all that fit to be a first name.

I love this name for a boy. I hope it doesn't get too popular.
