Could Bailey

Be a boy's middle name?

I promised my grandmother that I would name a daughter after her. Well, I'm not going to get the chance to and that is the hardest part I am dealing with not having a little girl. My grandmother's name was Miriam Aleene Bailey.

I am naming my next little boy Martin after my own maiden name.

I would still love to somehow include my grandmother too and thought about combining our maiden names...

Martin Bailey (last name)

I think that is a very fitting way to uphold your promise to your grandmother.

Sure, Bailey could be a boy's middle name.

I think so. I've known both boys and girls named Bailey.

Thank you. I actually started crying when it came to mind. Not being able to fulfill that promise has been heartbreaking in a way that I can't even explain. I loved her more than I've loved any other woman in this world.

Quoting sarah824:

Honestly, I've always thought of Bailey as a masculine name, not a feminine one (maybe due to the Beetle Bailey strip? LOL). I think it would work just fine as a boy's middle name!

Meredith in Grey's named her little boy after a female doctor with the last name of Bailey.
First thing that came to mind ;)

I know 2 girls that have Ryan as a middle name. I think bailey would be perfect for your new little guy:)

 Bailey will absolutely work for a boy's name!
