I would assume it was a surname.

Initial assumption would be boy, but it does work for a girl too imo

Well it's a surname but I would assume boy.
I don't like the trend to use surnames and boys' names for girls.

A boy or a surname. In fact I know 3 toddler boys called Carter in my small ish village!

I wouldn't assume knowing that surname type names, particularly in the US, are used for boys and girls. I'd think boy was more likely in the UK but wouldn't bet on it.

A boy. In a cart.

Showing my age but used to watch a tv series ER with a lead character, Dr John Carter, only ever called "Carter" by the rest, so definitely see it for a boy not girl.

A boy. Not at all keen on these surname names. A carter was someone who presumably drove (or made? I don't know) carts for a living. Why name your kid that?

EverythingEverywhere1234 Fri 14-Apr-17 09:00:58

Definitely a boy

Isawahatonce Fri 14-Apr-17 09:01:20

Boy but I wouldn't think it was odd for a girl

Also would think of Carter in ER but he was a good egg.

Because it was a name me and DC dad picked before he passed away so when DC arrives in July I would still like to use the name we also goes better with the middle name and it goes with my son's I said still using just wanted interested at what gender people thought, thank you smile
