I have an ancestor named Jamesina. Shudder. Naming a girl James is much better. I have a cousin whose daughter, Ryan, just graduated college. My cousin originally wanted a name that wouldn't hold her daughter back as a "woman" on a resume, but her daughter said recruiters look all the applicants up on Facebook, so it's not like she can hide being female even with the name Ryan.

Quoting RobinBright:

Ryan and James are the only decent names on your list, but they should be boys. The rest are awful.

I've always liked boy names for girls, and the other way around. I like Ashley for a boy for example.

Yes! He is Napoleon Oliver. I think kitty is the perfect name.

Quoting aehutmacher:

Wow! Your cat has a middle name! Mine doesn't even have a first. She's about 12 years old and I've always just called her Kitty.



I suppose "kitty" is a natural default name.



Quoting melodyhour:

Me too! It's my cats middle name.

Quoting LadyBugMom09:None. Sorry.



I like Oliver for a boy.





I like the name Oliver for a cat.

No, I read Gone With the Wind too much when I was little, and Ashley was a weak, insipid man. Ruined it for me. I like Beverley and Leslie for boys though. "Bev" and Les" sound boyish. My great grandfather was Leslie. And Beverley was the name of the male narrator of The Story Girl that the Avonlea series was based on. I'm on the fence with Vivian. Politics have ruined Lindsey and Hilary for me.

hmm...i never heard of wren as anyone's name actually. i've moved around a lot and never once met a ryan or james that was female.

Quoting Anonymous:

Arwen is a name created by the author J.R.R. Tolkien for a female character in the series LOTR. Wren is also generally a female name. I know that Ryan and James are rarely heard of for girls but I know a couple of each.


Quoting Anonymous:


idk if you live in another country? In America these are all boy-only names.  A girl with these boys names would be picked on.

Quoting Anonymous:

In your opinion I guess?


Quoting KyliesMom5:

All i'm seeing are boys names. This includes the names in pink.

Quoting Anonymous:In pink
Quoting KyliesMom5:So where are the girl names?
