This is such a cute name for little boys! It bothered me, though, that they have a girl's name Brody on here. I mean really? Don't they usually wait for the name to reach its masculine peak before people give them to their daughter?
I agree fully, but to be fair, there's a lot of names in the girls' section that should be strictly boys' names and vice versa. I'm still adamant about the name Avery being a boys' only name because it's my son's name.
