    It reminds me of Channing Tatum, so I think boy. I prefer more feminine names for girls usually.

    It’s a boys name in my opinion, think Channing Tatum. And I know a few Channings that my kids go to school with. I think it’s a nice name.

    Channing tatum comes to mind, and he has no neck. I’d associate it with a boy, although I think the name is silly all in itself.

    I don’t care for it because it reminds me of ‘canning’… like canning preserves. But I do understand that it’s become a real name and I wouldn’t really think twice about a friend naming their child it.

    It really sounds like it should be a verb…

    I would probably assume as I have only heard it in one context that the kid’s parents (or at least mum) were big fans of Channing Tatum. If you’re cool with that then, I guess that’s okay then? Given the association I would think of it as a more masculine name.

    I like it for a boy or a girl. I’m a fan of unisex names in general. I have a DD named Riley.

    I can’t decide if I like the name or not — all I can think of is Channing Tatum when I hear it. Despite that association, it actually seems like a pretty unisex name to me.

    Hyperventilate:  Hahahaha. He doesn’t have a neck!


    I’m not a fan of the name myself, as I tend to view it as more of a last name than a first name, but I think it would work for either a boy or girl.

    I could see it for a boy or girl. I think it’s been used both ways.

    I do think of Channing Tatum, but I’ve known quite a few girls with the name Channing and the name Tatum so I do think of it more as a feminine name just because of my association with it.

    I think of Channing Tatum so definitely think of it more as a boys name, but in saying that I really don’t care for it.
