  • "After agonizing over a unique name for our baby boy (two months old) we decided on Sullivan. It is a beautiful name and not to many people have heard of it. I myself did not know of any one else using the name before until reading the other comments on this site." May. 7, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "We decided on this name for our son (2.5 years old). Named after the surname of my wife's grandmother. We love it and get many compliments. Patrick Dempsey (the TV personality mentioned in the previous entry) named his son Sullivan about a year after we used the name so I imagine it's popularity will increase. Solid Irish name! Like the previous entry we've yet to meet another Sullivan." Mar. 6, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "We chose this name for our wonderful son (almost 3 years old now). Great Irish boy name. It is unique and we have yet to meet another Sullivan, although a TV personality just named his son Sullivan, so we look for more to show up eventually. TWO THUMBS UP." Dec. 19, 2007: Report as inappropriate
