Is Greer unisex?

I definitely love [name]Greer[/name] for a girl, but was wondering about just deciding to use it for my next baby whatever the gender. What are your thoughts on [name]Greer[/name] for a boy?

No, I would not consider [name]Greer[/name] to be a unisex name, no matter how close it is in sound and feel to another unisex name, [name]Blair[/name] - I think [name]Blair[/name] is fine for boys, but I prefer it for girls. I don’t think [name]Greer[/name] is appropriate for a boy, personally, and I would reserve it for a girl…

I agree with the last post. [name]Greer[/name] is only for girls.

I guess the answer is no but it sure sounds unisex. In fact when [name]Brooke[/name] Shields named her baby [name]Grier[/name] I thought for sure it was a boy.

[name]Greer[/name] reminds me of green. I prefer [name]Grier[/name].

However, I prefer this name on a boy. I could never find this attractive on a girl. I’m pretty sure that it is taken from the surname (and now first name), [name]Gregory[/name].

It’s a contraction of [name]Gregor[/name], so etymologically it’s not even unisex- it’s male, like [name]Madison[/name]. But also like [name]Madison[/name], it’s used almost exclusively on girls, so I would never use it on a boy. Actually, I probably wouldn’t use it on a girl, either. It’s just not really my taste.
