"Jordan" boys name or girls name? Which do you think of first?

When you hear the name Jordan (without having met the person) do you initially think it is a male name or a female name??

Note: This is PURELY out of curiosity..I'm not saying it should only be for one sex or the other.

  • I think boy off the bat.
    There is a brother/sister team on the amazing race right now. and they said "Jordan and Jeff" and honestly I thought about it 4 times wondering if I had heard that right because Jeff is not usually a feminine name....then it hit me JORDAN is the girl...not the guy. It's been a long day, haha.

  • I usually think male first, but if I later find out it's a female it doesn't surprise me.

  • I think it's a boys name, but it's gender neutral so I would never name my child that. I like names that are masculine or feminine sounding, no in between.

  • I think of it first as a boy's name, I really like it as a middle name for a girl though.

  • I don't think boy or girl. I ask. I know that is a very unisex name..

  • I think of girl, but that is because a cousin has a girl and we spend a decent amount of time with them. I don't assume anything about someone else though and ask if I need to know.

  • I think of a boy first. Probably just because my son has had 2 friends named Jordan.
