Do you prefer it for a boy or girl? Also, general thoughts?

Love for both.
Especially girl.

Love it for a girl don't like it for a boy because I think of Rowan Atkinson

DS had one male and one female Rowan in his class at primary, I liked the girl more than the boy so I prefer it for a girl. I think of it as a girls name tbh., I like it though.

Love it for a girl, it seems a bit 'wet' for a boy.

Girls name = nice, for a boy I would prefer Rohan.

I love it for either a boy or a girl

It's probably the only unisex name that I genuinely think suits both sees equally in my experience there is a reasonably even split so you ought not to get too much "oh I assumed it was a boy/girl" comments

I like it spelt Rohan and for a boy.

Prefer it for a boy. Think that's probably because any Rowans that I've met were male c

I agree Rohan for a boy. Or Roan.

Lookinatu Tue 08-Nov-16 18:30:47

I know 3 already it seems to be popular this year all boys.

My absolute favourite name, for boy or girl. Sadly vetoed by DH because it made him "think of mr bean" hmm

MalcolmTuckersEyebrows Tue 08-Nov-16 19:30:11

I think it's a lovely name for a girl.

groovygreenwichgirl Tue 08-Nov-16 19:32:32

Definitely prefer it for a boy. Really like it.

OllyBJolly Tue 08-Nov-16 19:35:29

love it for both.

My youngest dc is called rowan most people ask if it's inspired by Lord of the rings especially when they hear his middle name but no one has mentioned Mr Bean.

GoofyTheHero Tue 08-Nov-16 19:38:22

Love it for a girl, not keen for a boy. And that's despite the only Rowan i know being male!

TheGirlOnTheLanding Tue 08-Nov-16 19:43:58

Like it for a girl, and pronounced 'row' (to rhyme with cow) not 'roe'.

Buntysoven Tue 08-Nov-16 23:08:56

Prefer it for a boy.

Nice for a girl, and pronounced 'Roe-an'.

Love it, and totally would have used it, boy or girl, apart from the fact that I say it 'wowan' !

Love Rowan, it's great for both a boy or a girl
