Would You Feel Bad For a Boy Named...
My husband and I have started talking about names for our yet to be, but hopefully soon to be conceived, child/ren. For a boy we are drawn to several andro, surname type names. The trouble, I fear is that our favorites are much more popular for girls than they are for boys. I worry that if they they skew too girly they would be a burden for a boy to wear. To give you an idea of my thinking, Avery, Cameron and Quinn are a little girly (in my mind) but still not a big deal for a boy to pull off. On the other hand Ashley, Madison and Kendall feel (to me) feminine enough that they would be troublesome for a boy. What do you think of the usability, for a boy, of these names:
Emerson - The -son ending makes it more masculine and Most girl Emersons are probably going by Emmy or Emme or Emma, right? or am I wrong?
Harper - I ADORE the image of this on a little boy, but I once heard someone refer to it as the new Ashley...I knew a boy naked Ashley in the 90s and I felt bad for him. If you met a little boy named Harper, what would your reaction be, would you feel bad for him?
