- Comments and insights on the name Arliss
I knew a very attractive girl named Arliss when I was a teen. I never knew anybody else named that, but I thought it was an unusual, pretty name. She hated it and said it was a boy's name. Anybody out there got any feedback? Is it more of a boy's name than a girl's name? -Mary H.
Mary, I don't know, but I think it sounds more like a girl's name than a boy's name. I think it has a lovely sound and is a pretty name for a girl. On a boy, it would sound sissified. It's a very uncommon name, though, and I don't think I would use it because it is so uncommon and different, but I think it's a very pretty name for a girl.
I love the name Arliss! if my niece was a boy it would have been her name(thank goodness, now I can use it if i ever have a boy!) me and my sister grew up loving the movie and book old yeller, and travis was never my taste.
I love the name Arlis and it may currently be the front-runner for my expecting child, if it's a boy(sex unknown). I am not sure whether I would go one "s" or two on the end. I definitely think it is a masculine name though, perhaps not as much as some. But, Arliss is a pretty uncommon name, so labeling it masculine or feminine may not come as easy because personally, I don't associate the name with anyone. I guess, if I do, it is little Arliss from "Old Yeller." In which case, it screams masculinity because that little boy was always catching horned frogs and stood his ground confidently when the cowboy road in threatening to take Old Yeller :).
I'd say it's a unisex name, although I like it more for a girl than a boy, because it's a pretty name.
