Ok, how about this name?

I was thinking Dylan for a girl but someone made a very good point.. She said "how would you feel if you son Joshua was in a class full of GIRLS named Joshua?"

Good point!

So.. How about Shane? Or Shayla? Or what???

I'm due on the 1st of October!

  • I like Shane a lot, but I am not a fan of Shayla.

    I actually know quite a few girls named Dylan.

  • Shayla sounds like a girl's name. Shane is a boy's name, at least around here.

  • I like Dylan for a girl...but I will say if you're thinking against Dylan for the reason stated, then I wouldn't go with Shane either. If you're liking the kind of androgynous names maybe go with something like Taylor or Corie or Alex or Nik...

    Shayla is cute too...not one that I thought of for my daughter (when I have one), but I like it!!!

  • I think of Shane as a girl's name because I've known 2 Shane 's in my life, both girls..

  • I really like Shayla. First time I have heard it!

  • I would not use Shane for the exact same reason as you stated about Dylan.

    Shayla is definitely not my style but it does sounds like a girls name

  • How about something like Dilana for a girl, just so its a little more feminine? Or Dilanie(dil-la-knee)? Shayla isnt a bad name, but Im not so sure about Shane for a girl.. Ive heard Shayna or Shana..

  • Yeah Shane is a boy name also lol
    But I like how they changed the spelling to make it more girly if you do decide to use it. Delainey is a cute name that is close to Dylan or Shaina instead of Shane.
