Maybe I'm biased because a georgous girl named Shannon was my first crush way back in 4th grade, but I've always thought it was a feminine name. It wasn't until high school that I realized some guys have that name, too.

I'm not giving you a middle choice, you MUST choose sides.

I've known three males with the name Shannon, but what got me going this morning was a friend arguing with me that Shannon is a male name, then he linked me here. So, I brought the argument to the good sages here on OT.

I usually think of Shannon and Ashley as both being girl names. Taylor on the other hand I'm not quite sure if it's a male or female name, I think it's the person who sews up your clothes.

I've had male and female friends named Shannon, but I've always felt it to be a feminine name.

Of course, I've seen females named James, so a lot of names are going both ways, I guess.

Well would you tell them that to their face? They are both successful individuals who probably would not lay their hands on you but I am pretty sure you would be told off. So go ahead and mock their name behind your keyboard.

When I hear the name Shannon, I always think of Shannon Hoon, the sadly deceased male lead vocalist of Blind Melon. Which is kind of weird considering I have two female friends named Shannon in real life.

Ahh it seems it can be done by anyone, and i'll think you'll agree it's a lot of fun, although to keep this up is a bit of a strian, on my sleep deprived, fatigued, lazy brain, and i gather to others this a major annoyance, so i'll stop with my awesome wordplay flamboyance.

Yes, yes indeed. We should stop doing this, because there is no need.

Girl's name. Even if you can use it for both, doesn't mean you need to. A lot of names that have been used for both genders suit one significantly better.

I knew a girl named that. I'd name a boy Dominic if I was going to go that way. The que sounds feminine.
