Comments and insights on the name Boston: | Edit

I named one of my twin daughters Boston. It is such a beautiful name and although usually a boy name, it suits a girl perfectly!

Interesting, I have often been asked, "How old is HE?", when scheduling appointments. Although, no one I have spoken with, knows of a Boston, it is often assumed to be a male name. I agree, Boston is a BEAUTIFUL female name.

Personal experiences with the name Boston: | Edit

Growing up, our Boston, has always been remembered by friends and acquaintances. She can walk into most stores, or a new group environment, and she's always recognized,everybody knows her name.

This is very true because my name is Boston and I am a girl. Most people don't believe my actual name is Boston, and think it is a nickname. The most often question I get asked is Are your parents Red Sox fans? No they are not. They just liked the name :P

I know the sweetest little girl with this name. Her parents spelled it the more feminine spelling of Bostynn. I happen to think that her name is adorable.
