What would you pick between... — The Bump
Baby Names

What would you pick between...

Sawyer or Hunter for a boy, and Grace, Jillian or Heidi for a girl? Or none of the above? MNs are either James or Roman, and Christina (all family names).

 DH recently put Sawyer on the table and he's in love with it. Its growing on me, however I keep reading about it being a girls name also. I personally cant see it on a girl at all, but have never met a Sawyer, either gender, irl. I do not want to use a neutral name, but H loves it so much. Is it really common for a girl?

Thanks so much for the opinions!

Re: What would you pick between...

  • I like Sawyer and Hunter for boys I also love Roman with them.

    Love Grace and Heidi not so much Jillian.

  • I love Sawyer and Grace!!

  • Heidi and Roman for FNs
  • TBH, I like Sawyer better as a girls' name and I think it would sound pretty if you paired it with Grace. However, I've never actually met anyone named Sawyer -- boy or girl -- and the only time I've seen it used as a girls' name was in a movie, 

    I don't really see why it matters, though, if the name is unisex as long as you both love it and think it would fit well with your family.  If I were you, I'd use it for a boy or girl, but in case you decide not to use it, here are combos I like from the names you've listed:

    Hunter Roman

    Heidi Christina Grace

  • Jillian or Grace

    neither for a boy


  • I can't really choose between Sawyer and Hunter. I don't like either of them at all.

    Love Grace and Jillian! I don't think you can go wrong with either of those.

  • Hunter James for a boy, Heidi for a girl.  I'm not such a fan of Jillian.  I think of Sawyer as a girls name.

    I like Grace and Jillian for girls.

  • I would choose Hudson over the two choices.  I actually like Roman the best.   I like Jillian for the girl's name.

  • I'd pick Hunter and Grace.  Sawyer does not sound like a girl name to me at all.
  • My vote is Heidi or Jillian because they are more unique than Grace.  Grace is SO popular right now, but if you love it, go for it.  I know one little girl named Sawyer.  Before that, I hadn't heard it as a fn before.  Neither boy name is my style :(

     

  • Sawyer James is good, but it's got a strong connection to LOST. That may or may not bother you. I'm not a fan of Hunter.

    Grace Christina would be my girl choice.

  • If Sawyer is a common girls name, it shouldn't be! Its NMS for a boy either. Of the boy names you chose I would go with Roman James. For a girl, I don't know that Christina flows with any of the firsts you chose, what about Christina Grace?

  • Sawyer James- for boy

    Heidi Christina- Girl

    I dont consider Sawyer a girls name....but seriously right now almost any name can be gender neutral if you would like...or so it seems

  • Sawyer James or Roman James/Jillian Christina - Sawyer should definitely not be used for a girl IMO

  • LOVE Sawyer for a boy, it is our top boy name, and we are uding James as a MN, too!  Great minds think alike :)  For the girls, I really like Jillian.  I feel like Grace is sort of overdone, Hillary makes me think of Fresh Prince...

  • I LOVE Hunter James!

    Jillian Christine was on our list for a while, so I'm partial to Jillian Christina.  Besides that, Heidi Christina doesn't sound right to me.

  • I have a hard time imagining Sawyer on a child, as I named my cat that about 5 years ago. But....a friend then named her son Sawyer, and he is the cutest little boy. I definately dont see it as a girl name.

    I really like Jillian for a girl.

  • Thanks very much for all the opinions! Roman and James are very close family members FNs and why we'd like to stay away from them as our lo's FN. Im going to let Sawyer marinate a little longer, and we'll see if it stays on the list or not. We've still got some time. :)

    For the girls, I dislike how popular Grace is but its the only name Ive ever really loved (and DH agrees). Now that we actually have to pick one, Im looking for other options however if it comes down to it we might stick with it regardless of the popularity.

    Thanks again! :)

  • I don't like Sawyer or Hunter. I guess I'd pick Sawyer because it's less hick-sounding. Your girls names are great. I like Heidi the best.

  • I am so so so jealous that your husband loves Sawyer! Its my very favorite and he hates it. I think it's total boy, I don't get the gender neutral-ness of this name. Come on, Tom Sawyer!
