Would it be ok to name a girl Bailey?

I know that it is mine & my husbands choice what we name our baby girl. I just would like outside opinions. Thank you.

  • My daughter's name is Bailey Michelle--she is 24--so I would say, yes. Her name-sake was Bailey Quarters from "WKRP in Cincinnati". At the time, that was a very usual name for a girl--we liked it because it was so non-gender and we thought it would give her more opportunities in life not having a strictly female name. It worked. She was called to an interview for a management position and the person who interviewed her was shocked because he thought she was going to be male--she got the job.

  • The only "Baileys" I have ever known were girls..I personally have never met a male named Bailey. And I think it's cute!
