Girl or boy?

Middle name?

I know a little boy called Eden. Really suits him.

Nanasueathome Mon 13-Jul-15 09:22:04

Both my niece and my cousins daughter called their daughters Eden Olivia
Neither knew what names the other had decided in until they announced the birth and name

It's a girls name to me.

I really like it

Floggingmolly Mon 13-Jul-15 09:54:23

I've only ever known boys called Eden. It's nice.

Emochild Mon 13-Jul-15 09:55:45

I know one of each

I would generally assume girl though

Boy or Girl?

Passmethecrisps Mon 13-Jul-15 09:58:44

I have known one of each. Both teenagers when I knew them but the boy will be in his twenties now.

Lovely name

I think it's more masculine. There was a male singer in the 60s called Eden Kane which was my earliest recollection of it. But I've never met anyone, male or female, called Eden.

BobsBurglars Mon 13-Jul-15 11:33:08

Oooh what a lovely name. I like the fact that it could work for either gender, neither too masculine nor feminine for either. Would work well with a longer, more flowing middle name.

Eden Olivia is beautiful NanaSue

I know a little girl called Eden and she suits it.

NorbertDentressangle Mon 13-Jul-15 11:37:32

I know a boy called Eden so think of it as a boys name.

MamaLazarou Mon 13-Jul-15 11:38:45

I know a girl called Eden but think it works as either.

Sophronia Mon 13-Jul-15 11:43:34

I only one I know is a man in his twenties.

Anthony (Eden) sprang to mind.

Nightclub name.

Facts: Unisex but used more for girls. I don't like it, personally.

TwoLittleBlooms Mon 13-Jul-15 12:01:57

Beautiful name, I would consider it a feminine name. Although, I have never come across it used for either.

ems942 Mon 13-Jul-15 15:18:49

Lovely- I know two girls aged 3/4 who are Eden

SingForBacon Mon 13-Jul-15 15:20:29

I definitely see it as a boys name.

sweetpeame Mon 13-Jul-15 15:59:45

To me it sounds very feminine so I definitely wouldn't use it for a boy. In actual fact I wouldn't use it for a girl either, I think it sounds quite faddy (even if it's not).

NadiaWadia Mon 13-Jul-15 17:15:32

Sounds more feminine to me, though I know it can be used for boys too. A good name, nice sound and lovely meaning.

MrsPeeee Mon 13-Jul-15 17:26:10

I know a boy Eden but I think it's more feminine.

Dansak Mon 13-Jul-15 20:37:42

I know a young boy called Eden and a baby girl Eden. I feel its more feminine.

EmmaWoodlouse Mon 13-Jul-15 20:40:11

I've never met an Eden but a friend has a goddaughter called Eden Savannah. I've heard of Eden Kane too, and I think it would make an equally good name for either sex, as it's so rare for either that it doesn't really seem to have become strongly associated with one or the other.
