yyawn.gif Unless specified by the OP it's usually fair to assume they are using boys' names for a boy.

My DS is Elliott Michael.  Our surname is 2 syllables as well.  Michael is DHs name.

Yes, for a boy...I didn't know Elliot was a girls name too!

Thank you so much for your suggestions so far - very much appreciated. Thanks original.gif

  Yes it's used for both boys and girls.

  But she's asking about a unisex name.  Ok, so it's mostly used for boys but there are still plenty of girls around named Elliot.

There may be girls named Elliot, but it is still primarily a male name, and therefore reasonable to assume unless otherwise specified that it is being used for a boy.

It is not a unisex name! I'm sorry, but it's not.

Edited because I was a bit annoyed and thought better of it.

  Tell that to all the little girls named Elliot running around.

Next you'll be telling me that Hunter is a boys name too.

I would. Just as if I met a boy named Catherine or Isabella I would still think they had a girl's name.

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm................yeah.............................

The fact that some people like to have strong "boy" names for their daughters doesn't negate the fact that it's a boys name.

I could call my daughter Richard. Does that suddenly make it a girls name?

   Sorry but Hunter is definitely a unisex name.  I named my 7 year old DD Hunter because it's a gorgeous name, not because I thought it was a strong boys name.
