Just wondered what you all thought of the name Rowan? I know it can be unisex but wanting to know what you think of it for boys only, middle name James. Thank you! x

Lovely name. If I had had a boy we would have used it.
Sounds good with James to.

DS1 is Rowan, so I love it.

All very positive, thank you!

yes it is a lovely name for a boy - we know a 'boy rowan' and 'girl rowan' and it is truly unisex

Yes is lovely for a boy - I prefer it as a boys name personally although I know it's used for both smile

I also prefer it as a boy's name.

Love Rowan James.

We wanted to call our ds Rowan, but dh's brother looks just like Rowan Atkinson. As much as we both love and admire him (RA, that is) we just didn't think we could!

Still love the name though and would have used it if not for bil!!!

Really like it- I have taught a few- some like it pronounced with the w others 'roan'.

I don't like it as a boy's name. Love it for girls though.

Sounds a bit girly to me. Probably because the first one I met was a girl. But tree and plant names are usually female, eg Willow, Ivy and so on.

One of dd1's best friends is a girl Rowan (pronounced like the tree). In Acotland where we are it's pretty much exclusively a girls name, and I love it as such.

Love it!
If dd1 had been a boy we would have used Rowan.
