fredalina:DebateThis:It's sex, not gender.Beyond that, check out Nymbler.com or the Baby Names board, unless you give us more information other than "I want names". I disagree. When someone is transgendered and they want to be referred to as a specific gender (I.e. male body parts but identifies as a woman) they usually change their name also. So Barry changes his name to Barb to show the identification with female gender. So in this case, it would be gender not sex, right?

By definition, sex = body parts/chromosomes/biological differences, gender = self-identified/socially identified characteristics.
In this case, since the OP wants to name her kid based on either penis or vagina, she's talking about sex. Now, if she names her female child Virginia and then Virginia self-identifies as male and wants to be called Virgil and does "socially acceptable masculine things", that's gender identity. It goes beyond that into social identity (what is considered socially acceptable "masculine" or "feminine" behavior, for example).
This is a really good explanation:
Sex refers to a natural or biological feature.Gender refers to cultural or learned significance of sex.According to Medilexicon's medical dictionary: Sex is "The biologic character or quality that distinguishes male and female from one another as expressed by analysis of the person's gonadal, morphologic (internal and external), chromosomal, and hormonal characteristics." Gender is "The category to which an individual is assigned by self or others, on the basis of sex." https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/232363.php
