My name's Dakota. I'm a girl. I do think the name is a bit more boyish, for the only Dakota's I've ever met have been boys all younger than me. It's a nice name but recently I've changed it to Dakotah it seems more feminine. My siblings names are Montana (girl), Kansas (boy), and Nevada (girl). Everyone I've met love our names and think it is very different. It's very fun telling others our names.
My middle name !!!

My parents wanted to name me Dakota, but they went for Chloe instead, 'cause they were afraid that the name would be pronounced by people wrong. (I live in Belgium, so in dutch it would sound stupid !!) but if I'd be born in the states I'd be proud to wear it !!
love the name

Has anybody else noticed how you go to boy names and have all these different posts about how your girls and have a boy name? (Although we don't really need to hear it.) Is it just me or do you think we girls stole all the good boy names? Hm.

There's an American young actress called Dakota (I don't remember her surname, please help! Isn't it Fanning?) and I love this actress and her name but it would be weird in France. I'm not sure it can be given to a child outside the States.

And I noticed that there was a girl named Dakotah with a sister named Nevada. That made me crack up, because my name is Dakotah (yes with an H) and I too have a sister named Nevada :)
