Sloan Ivy
Sloan Joanne
Sloan Renea
Sloan Dory

Love it! My name is Ellison "Ellie". It's a family name for me, but I think it's cute. Personally I don't think it should be a first name, but maybe that's just me.

My oldest son's name is Sloan. It's my grandmother's maiden name. I've grown to love the name more over the years. He's 8 years old now. He's the only Sloan at his school. We haven't met any other Sloan's. He is very smart, athletic, and he has a wonderful personality. He's tough and I can't imagine him having any other name!
Seems more like a male name to me. If I had just seen the name written without any indication of the person's gender, I would think it was a guy.
I'm surprised to see how uncommon this name is, because I know 2 people named Sloan. I honestly don't like it very much, it's not very pretty and doesn't sound like a name to me.
As I have ancestors with this surname, I could easily use it. I've since, however, discovered that it means "raid" and now all I can think about are insect spray commercials.

When I first read this name in novel, I thought it was the weirdest name for a girl I had ever seen. It's been a few years since then, and I had forgotten about it until it came up while I was watching tv. You know what? I rather like this name now, athough I don't know if I would want to name a child that. It seems more appropriate for the place I first read it. A novel.
