    After spending months going through my baby name books, DH and I decided to name our little girl Sullivan! I am really excited because this is a name I suggested for a girl when I first found out I was pregnant and it took DH a while to come around to it. Her middle name will be Frances, after my wonderful Grandmother. I know this is traditionally a boys name, but the only other Sullivan I've ever known was a girl. Plus, I have friends Stewart, Riley, Cody, Clay, etc. who are girls with boys name - maybe it's a Southern thing - so to me when I hear Sullivan I think "girl." It was so funny, when I told my Grandmother the baby's name I thought her first reaction would be to the fact that we were naming the baby after her. But it was to Sullivan as a first name. She just goes "Sullivan?" Then she realized what was going on and was so moved. Gotta' love her! Any way, I love the name but would also like to get some feedback. What do you think?

    I think it's a really COOL name, and you are right, sometimes boys' names do really suit girls.
    I like it a lot[​IMG]

    I love it...if my hubby wasn't so picky, I'd totally have picked a "boy" name...I always wanted to use Brett for a girl. :)

    I think it is adorable, but I think boys names for girls is cute. I really like Brett for a girl too. :)

    Love it! The middle name for our girl was on my boy list ... she will be Caroline Avery. Like you, she will be my third girl and you just start running out of favs! I think Sullivan is a great name! Really, not to dish on Grandma but Frances can be a boy or a girl name, too!

    Thanks for the feedback! Now that we've named her, I can't see her being anyone else other than Sullivan.
