  • Boy or Girl?

    My son's name is Brandton. We call him Brandt for short. The D is silent.

    My niece's name is Emmerson.

    Those are the only 2 different ones I can think of right now. Both not common, but not weird either!

  • If you don't like common names don't use Riley. It is a great name, but there are lots of little Rileys out there right now! It was number 39 in the top 100 names for 2008 Boy or girl? check out the top 500 boy/girl names in 2008 at http://www.socialsecurity.gov/cgi-bin/popularnames.cgi


    How about Keenan for a boy, Keely for a girl?

  • Riley Paige would be nice for a girl, but I guess that might be common. My older daughter's name is Keely Vale, which is not overly common or overly strange.

    If you're thinking Riley for a boy, then maybe Riley Shane or Riley Price. I like the names Riddley, Eliot, or Lex for a boy.
