If so what would you pair for middle names for both?!

No. It's a man's name and sounds ridiculous on a girl. Would you name a girl John?

It's a dude name - very handsome, but it's hideous for a girl and will look stupid and outdated in a couple of years - please, for your childs sake, keep it on a boy.

A girl on here named her daughter Elliot, I think it works for both.

Better yet, would you name a boy Isabella?



No? Then you shouldn't name your daughter Elliot.

It's a masculine name. It only works for a boy. Very handsome on a boy. Horrible on a girl.

If ANYTHING, I'd call a girl something like Eleanor Colette and call her "Elliette" for a nickname. Mayyyybe.

Just because it was used for a girl on a TV show doesn't make it a feminine name. It's a male name, etymology says so, saddling a girl with it is just a stupid trend.

Evelyn I like. It's increasingly popular...something to think about if that's a concern to you.
