  • "In1972 my wife was pregnant and someone gave me a book called "What not to Name the Baby". It made fun of all the stereotypes of common names. After that we could't pick a name we liked. I was working in a machine shop tool crib a one night was looking out over the shop and I noticed most of the lathes were Logan lathes. I decided that night it worked well with our last name and I had never heard of that name before. So in January of 1973 we named our son Logan. Looking at the chart He may be first Logan of modern era." Jan. 20, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "We named our son, Logan almost 25 years ago because it was unusual and chances of there being another Logan in his classes as school were slim. I still love the name and it fits him well. I think he also likes it because it's unusual." Oct. 18, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter was born in 1991, making her 16, my mother picked out this name, and I loved it thinking how different and unique, now I am finding it has really caught on for a girls name. It is actually considered a surname, like Regan or MaKenzie. She has always loved her name and I have never regretted naming her Logan, she is a very feminime blonde, and it is so great when people are expecting a boy to walk forth and instead they see a beautiful young girl, also recently she started dating a boy named Logan and they think that it's pretty cool. The only problem I ever had was when she was a newborn, she was born bald and inspite of those pink dresses she wore everyone wanted to refer to her as a "HE" but she soon outgrew that."

  • "I'm almost 16, and I'm a girl named Logan. Most of the time when new teachers call roll, they outwordly tell me that they were expecting a guy. What's funny is I am not "manly" whatsoever. And meeting guys named Logan is o.k.-it shouldn't be that bad to meet a girl named Logan(referring to the Dec. 8 comment) And in regards to the Jan. 3 comment-deal with it. It kind of hurts that you don't think some girls can have a strong, dignified name. I also love my name, and it's individuality. So please, don't get angry or saddened-just look at it as another child blessed with such a strong name." Jan. 29, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "We named our son, Logan Luke Bartholomew Bazeley in 1979. We started a trend, I believe. I still like it and I hope that he likes it too. His initials are LLBBL." Oct. 19, 2006: Report as inappropriate
