Is Charlie "going girl"/3rd son a junior?
I'm due with our 4th child (3rd boy) in September. Our other children are Willi@m, Ann@bel, and Henry, though we call them almost exclusively by their nns, W1ll, Ann1e, and H@nk.
One name that has been on our list since I was pregnant with our first boy is Charles, nn Charlie. However, I have noticed that the number of little girls named Charlie/Charley/Charleigh/Charlee is going up. I checked out the 2011 name stats and all the girl spellings have gone up in ranking while the boys' Charles and Charlie have held steady. I have an androgynous name myself, and would like to avoid one. Is this Charlie-girl trend here to stay?
Our other contender right now is to name him after my husband (Andrew). Since my husband goes by @ndy and I am not a big fan of Drew, his nn would be his initials (AJ). This still goes with the sibset, and I like the name, but is it weird to have a 3rd son be the junior?
Let me know what you think! Thanks!
