  • "when i have a daughter im gonna name her jordan even though its a boy name its different and makes a girl more unique" Apr. 12, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My Daughters names is Jodan, she is 5 and in kindergerden. No fear for thoughs who are now naming their girls Jordan, and I do like it better "an" and not "yn". As a young girl kids like to find things with their names on it. Well, sometimes we3 find things in neutral, green colors for example but she's fine with that. I guess the point I'm making if your thinking of a 18 or older Jordan yes, it's probably a boy, but buy the time the jordan's now get that age I don't think anyone will be assuming it's a boy. Interesting, my daughter's middle name is Elizabeth, I'm reading that a lot in the comments, our was after a dear family member, but I'm so glad we mamed her that Jordan with the elegance of Elizabeth goes great together, can't tell you how many complements, and that certainly isn't going to be mistaken for a boy. By the time my daughterd grown the comment will probably be, "Jordan, for a boy?" She has 6 Jordan's two spelled with yn endings in school, not one boy. The girl Jordans of future will be just fine without getting that, "It's a boy thing" Anyways I love jordan Elizabeth, strong and elegant for a girl." Jan. 16, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my daughter Jordan. She doesn't like it because of boys sharing the same name. I do find when I call places like the school or doctor's offices, they always assume my child Jordan is a boy. for example, if I call the school to say "jordan is out sick today" they reply "I hope HE feels better". One of my former employers even said to me "why did you give your daughter a boy's name?". I love the name Jordan for a girl, I think it is strong, unique, independent and trendy. I just wish my daughter felt the same" Jun. 22, 2009: Report as inappropriate
