    I love it for both. I have had two students named Jordan and they were awesome kids. I never even thought about the name being a boy or a girl’s name.

    Traditionally, I think it’s a boy’s name, but in 2012 if I hear of a child name Jordan I’m assuming it’s a girl.  I think it’s one of those names (like Morgan, or Avery) that while once considered a boy’s name and later considered unisex, now leans more heavily toward girl.

    I’m not a fan of unisex names, so wouldn’t use Jordan for a baby of either sex.

    Both. It’s one of the only really unisex names that we would consider, because I really like it for both, but I prefer names that are obviously boy or girl.

    I have only really known girls named Jordan so I automatically associate it with girls.

    I know 4 Jordans offhand, 2 boys/2 girls. The girls are younger so I think its swinging female (at least in my circle)

    When I was in school it was a boy name, now that I’m an adult most children I see named Jordan are girls.

    I always think of JordAn as a boy’s name and JordYn as a girl’s name.

    @aicila:  I’m a teacher, too, and every Jordan I’ve ever had has been a massive pain in the butt!  Lucky you.  😛

    To me, it’s a boy’s name.

    I know more female Jordans so that’s how I view it.

    I have a female 25 year old cousin named Jordan.  I also know 2 slightly younger male Jordans.  I agree that spelling can help make the distinction more clear.  Jordyn is definitly more feminine to me and Jordan can be more masculine. But really, Jordan is either to me 🙂

    Definitely more of a boy name, but I LOVE it as a girls name!!
