Sutter?

I don't mind if you don't really like it per say, I'm more curious about whether or not you think it's far too boyish or masculine for a girl.

I could see it on a girl. Not my favorite but I wouldn't think poorly of it if I heard it on a girl.

I think of Sutter as a purely boys name.

To me it seems very very masculine. I like some boy names used for girls, like "Rian" (more feminine spelling) etc, but "Sutter" just screams male to me.

I assume it's a family surname? If so, I think it would make a nice middle name. I wouldn't use it as a first name. It has a very masculine sound...and I generally like unisex names.

Thanks girls. I totally agree. I am a huge fan of spunky, unisex names but Sutter is too "boyish/masculine" even for my taste. DH is INSISTENT upon using it. I don't hate it, but it doesn't feel right for a girl. I wanted a few other opinions to show him

It was going to be our boys name if we had found out we were having a boy and I loved it. Just not for a girl.

You could use it as a middle name with an ultra fem first name

I like it, but I agree that it's probably more masculine than feminine.

I am one who loves spunky sounding/masculine names on girls and it's hard for me to picture.

I like the suggestion of using it as a mn if its special to you and you want to incorporate it. And Sutton I could see on a little girl, it feels a bit softer.

I agree with other posters - could see it as a middle name, but not as a first for a girl

I know a girl called Sutton, it really suits here and I like it. Sutter? Is it a family name? It would make a lovely middle name, but to be honest I don't see it on either a boy or a girl.
PS. I really like the name Reid

kids are cruel, and she will probably be called Slutter instead. horrible world we live in. I was called Whorey Lori and Deloris Clitoris in high school.

I have never even heard of Sutter as a name, is it a family name? if you MUST use it, I would put it in the middle name spot.

Our last name ends in an "en" sound so Sutton wouldn't work, although I do like it. Sutter is not a family name...we were throwing names around with my family at Thanksgiving and my MIL suggested it. It's the name of the county where I was born and it's where my grandmother's ashes are spread. I LOVED it for a boy and was excited to use it...on a girl? Eh, I just don't know.

Back to the drawing board! Hopefully DH will quit bringing it up. He shoots down EVERY SINGLE name I suggest...Sutter is the only one he likes, so I was trying to get on board with it but I just can't
