Boy or girl names? hmmm

The name Aspen sounds VERY feminine to me but I've seen people name their sons Aspen
The name Afton sounds VERY masculine but i see people naming their daughters Afton

What's your take on it?

  • I don't like either name for either sex to be honest. I wouldn't name my own child either name. I actually think Afton sounds more feminine than masculine.

  • I don't like it at all. Im not fond of location names. On a different note, Aspen is my husbands niece's name. Still hate it though.
