Do you think GIRL or BOY when you hear this name?

When you hear the name [name_u]River[/name_u] without seeing the person, do you automatically think it is a girl or a boy?

Actually, this is one of the few names I don’t assume gender, it is completely 100% unisex imo.


I lean towards boy, but I can easily imagine any gender!


I love [name_u]River[/name_u] for a boy, but [name_u]River[/name_u] is actually one of the few names that I truly consider unisex.

If you had asked me a few months ago, I probably would have said girl, but now maybe boy? I don’t know, I think I like it more for a girl, but I would assume boy? I agree with @EJpuddlejumper. It’s completely gender neutral for me at this point. Beautiful for both genders!

Honestly, I think [name_u]River[/name_u] is truly unisex. I’d probably prefer it on a boy myself, but I think it works well on a girl, too.

I’m firmly in Camp Boy. I’ve never heard this on a girl (yet!).

Boy, even though the only little [name_u]River[/name_u] I know is a girl :woman_shrugging:

Beautiful name for either sex!

I would assume girl, just because I’ve heard it on more girls, but I much prefer it on a boy.

boy-I know two little boys named [name_u]River[/name_u] and no girls, but I could see it going both ways.

I prefer it on a boy! A beautiful name though

I’d assume boy but I could see it on a girl too.

I immediately think girl because of [name_u]River[/name_u] Song from [name_u]Doctor[/name_u] Who, but I can just as easily see it on a boy. I’d say it’s completely unisex.

Initially think boy. But I think it does work for both genders.

Definitely boy. I’ve only ever known it on boys and it feels very masculine to me.

I only know boys with the name [name_u]River[/name_u], but it’s one of those names that I feel could truly be either or. It’s definitely an even split for me.

I think [name_u]River[/name_u] could be unisex as I can imagine it on either gender, but I prefer it personally on girls.

I wouldn’t expect a boy or a girl if I saw it. I think it’s one that’s truly neutral. I think I prefer it on a girl though.
