Dh and I both like these names and since they are so close it is a one or the other.

So for a BOY name do you prefer Warren or Rowan?

Warren for a boy Rowan has always been a girls name to me. It was one of our girls names on our list. Love it.

I prefer Rowan to Warren. Warren reminds me of "There's Something About Mary".

I think of Rowan as more of a girls name as well, so chose Warren.

I prefer Rowan over Warren and by a vast amount. I like a "w" in the middle of the name for flow and sound, but names that begin with this letter seem hard to say. In fact, it seems that the "w" in the middle of the name makes it easier to say, whereas at the beginning makes it harder to say.

Plus the W and "double R" in the name sometimes make people sound like they have a speech impediment. I have a lisp and can remember some names as specifically hard for my peers to prn when we were in speech therapy. Warren was particularly difficult, but names with a "w" in the middle gave little difficulty.

I can see Rowan on either gender; however, I slightly prefer it on a girl. That being said, I don't like Warren at all so I chose Rowan

I voted Warren - I really like Rowan as a girls name. I think Warren is a very strong name.

I vote Warren. I think of Rowan as a girls name and would not choose it for a boy.

Rowan is one of the few names that I see as "unisex"... I don't mind it as a girl's name... but I VASTLY prefer it on a boy. My only hesitation is that most other people prefer it on a girl and see it as a girl name, so there might not be as much acceptance over the name. Though personally, I'm rarely concerned with "acceptance", lol... but that's me.

I dislike Warren.

So to me, Rowan all the way.
