This name feels very masculine and strong, I like it a lot.
Sullivan can be a female name. I know a little girl named this, and her nickname is Sully. (I feel sorry for her.)
I like the name Sullivan but it’s kind of trendy (being a popular last name) and it is a mouthful to say. Also I’ve noticed when I mentioned using the name for a boy other people have said they know girls named Sullivan. Apparently there have been 2 celebrities who named their daughters Sullivan...what!? It just doesn’t sound feminine at all to me. It’s a nice name but I’m not using it, at least for now. Will always love James P Sullivan.
I love this name but that's because it's my brother's name. It fits him well and he is small and darker than the rest of us. But I think it'd be nice on many people. It has a lot of good nicknames, Sully, Sul (I call him Sal), Ivan (we never call him this).
I like Sullivan, like Solomon and Jackson, a last name could work as a first name as well.
Sounds like a brand name.
One of my cousins named their newborn son this. It's not my favorite name. I mainly think of it as a surname or the big blue guy from Monster's inc.
I do like the name Sullivan. I mainly enjoy it for the nickname Sully, which I think it really cute! I like the name Sullivan because it reminds me of something I would name a pet! And I love animals! I also love “pet names” on children.
I sorta like this name as a first name.
I think this a sexy, handsome name for a guy. ;)
I love this name for a boy. I hope it doesn't get too popular.
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.
This name has a nice ring to it, like Donovan.
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]
A GIRL at my school has this name. I don't like it at all. Sounds like a last name.
Sullivan is the name of Tom Waits' second son.
This sucks as a first name. It sounds pretentious, yet not very high class.
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!"
Patrick Dempsey named one of his twin sons Sullivan Patrick.
I like this as a male name, especially with the nickname Sully.
Sullivan can also be used on a girl. I know two female Sullivans.
The translation is faulty, but the form is accurate:

Ua (Ó) Súileabháin : Clann of the White ("Blind") Eyed One.
