I thought Apple was the name of a gender neutral fruit.

Don't i feel the fuking dickhead.

Ilovegames1992

why, did you hear or read of someone named Apple?

Gwyneth Paltrow named her kid Apple.

what the hell? I wonder what she'll name her next kid, Orange? Lemon? How about Watermelon?

Maybe the kid is the apple of her eye.

We are just choosing to not backstab our bros and monopolize names towards our gender.

I know one guy whose name is Shannon. He goes by his last name though, so I think that's saying something.

Ive met 1 guy named Shannon. Anyway, I say it's a girls name. Mainly because I know quite a few girls with the name, and my fiances name is Shannon, lol.

Shannon is a girl's name.

#62 Posted by mrbojangles25 (31985 posts) -

I think it goes both ways, like Kim, Alex, and so forth.

Though tbh I havent met anyone named Shannon, just think that historically there were a lot of men named Shannon.

I thought Shannon was used exclusively for females :|

Shannon ("wise river") is an Irish unisex name, Anglicised from Sionainn. Alternative spellings include Shannen, Shanon, Shannan, Seanan, and Siannon. The variant Shanna is an Anglicisation of Sionna ("possessor of wisdom").linked page

I know a guy called Sharon and have done for a few years now so I don't think of it as a girls name. However Shannon is a girls name to me, never heard of a guy called Shannon but I do however know that it's a unisex name like Francis, just very rarely do I hear of a guy sporting it.

Think its a different spelling though.

I know a girl named Frances but not Francis.

Are they pronounced the same? I think the female name, Frances, may be pronounced with a "z" sound (i.e. "Francez") while the male name, Francis, is pronounced with "s"/soft-c sound. I don't know for sure though.

Chick name.......

It definitely has the connotation of being a girl's name. I've found that guys with feminine names have it as a family legacy (their father/grandfather had the name) and in the "old country" it was a man's name.

I've known men named Stacy, Kelly, Carol, etc. I also knew a girl named Michael.

I have too. It has to be hard growing up with a feminine name. I wonder what some parents are thinking when they name their sons.

On a related note my father has a feminine name. Merel, like Meryl Streep. It was his grandfather's name. Thank god I didn't inherit it lol.

Meryl's not' so bad, but yeah, you did get lucky there..........

'Tis a girl name these days.

Of course, idiotic parents have a tendency to give girls guy names, and over time, the formerly manly name becomes a girl name. Such a process does not work the other way 'round, to my knowledge, and eventually, all names since ever will be girl names...
