My 2nd son is named Taylor. When I 1st found out I was pregnant me & my ex-husband decided the baby would be named Taylor regardless of gender. The only difference would be the middle name, we chose Kennedy for his middle name. I've asked him if he thinks his name is for a girl & he doesn't think it is. He likes his name a lot & it's very fitting for him.
