  • "I LOVE the name Hunter. Ever since I was small, I always thought that I would name my future daughter Hunter. A year ago I decided to change my third name Gemma because I didn't think it suited my personality and I was always embarrassed to tell people my full name because I felt it wasn't truly representative of who I am. After looking at many names, I decided to change my third name to Hunter because it felt right. It surprised me when I read comments that Hunter is only a male name; I always had the impression that it was a girl's name... Hunter green is my favourite colour so whenever I now tell people my full name, I see a flurry of Hunter green and this reminds me of a beautiful dense forest. I couldn't imagine anything more beautiful and in tune with nature. I love it." Nov. 29, 2016: Report as inappropriate

My favorite thing is when people are caught off guard to see that I am a girl and it is their first time meeting a girl named Hunter. All other Hunters I know are male, so it's kind of fun to be sticking out! Plus it's a positive way to be remembered. P.S. I get so annoyed when people pronounce the "t"."
