Comments and insights on the name Lindsay: | Edit

My husband's name is Lindsay (he goes by his initials instead), and he was mocked mercilessly in school for having a "girl's name." He was named after his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, who all had this name before it became so popular for females. We recommend not using this for a boy's name, to save the poor kid some dignity when he gets to school.

Love this as a boys name, we were seriously considering this if we had a boy. Its a shame its so common for girls because I think the sound of it is quite masculine. But it does seem like it would be a teasing point...sigh. maybe when it is less popular it can come back around for boys.
