The REASON why THIS name can be FEMININE is BECAUSE it's an ELABORATION of LARK.

My uncle Larkin was named after his father, who was named after his grandfather, Larkin Barnett. The name apparently comes from the Irish, meaning 'rough, fierce' and is definitely a male name. These days, however, people commonly name their girls with boys' names, so it's no wonder everyone is confused.

This name definitely seems more suited for a female. This is just like another nature inspired bird name like Robin or Wren. This seems like a good name if that is your style.

I like Larkin for a boy and it sounds so masculine to me! For a girl, I prefer Larkine. I’m starting to understand that some boy names should be best on boys because Charlesine and Christophine seem pretty on girls, they’re never used! That makes no sense:):):):):):):))))))!

My uncle’s name was Larkin Eldridge (first and middle). These were family names from my maternal grandfather’s side. They were red-haired Scotch-Irish descendants living in El Paso, Tx around 1905-1980. My uncle was born in El Paso in the mid 1940s. His brothers’ names included Leighton, Douglas, Chadwick, and Owain. As far as I know, his name was always Larkin with no nickname, even though all 5 of his siblings had nicknames, common ones for the time (Dick, Jim, etc).

As a female with the first name of Larkin, I can honestly say I've never met anyone else -- male or female -- with the same name. In school I always looked at it as: "Well, even if I just sign my first name, the teacher won't confuse me with anyone else." :-).

It is far more common as a last name though. Both it and my middle name (Dyer) were taken from the surnames of two maiden aunts.

This seems feminine to me, perhaps because I'd want to use the nickname Lark.

In the book Baby by Patricia MacLachlan (of Sarah, Plain and Tall fame), the main character and narrator is named Larkin. I had never heard this name until I read that book, but I like it a lot. It sounds more feminine to me, probably because the book character is a girl.

I wouldn't name my kid this or anything, but it looks like a terrific name for a character in a fantasy book, and maybe even a good name for a band, if you think about it.

I don't really like this name, and it sounds very surname-y and elitist.

Actually, she's Lady Larken, not Lady Larkin. Larkin seems like a feminine name to me, despite the more masculine -in ending, because of the whole lark thing.
