Would you, or have you named your son what most people might consider a "girl" name? Some examples are Tracy, Shannon, Lindsey and Hilary.

 I think my son's names are traditional "boy" names. I have met a few girls with my youngest son's name....I still think Bryce is more "male sounding" than female,kwim?

I have boys and I didn't do it. I am interested in hearing if anyone did decide to use a "girl" name why they did. It's been a question on my mind for years.

Jamie's a girls name? I've only ever heard it on boys, and I know a lot of Jamie's, its a nickname for James.

Quoting Kaybean:

I think Jamie is okay for a boy, but not the ones you listed.

I know a church pastor named Hillary. Most of those names are traditional boys names in other countries, especially Ireland, so the parents are just following their ancestry. I have three male cousins who have "girlish" names, two who are brothers named Emile (em-meal) and Marius (mary-us) and another named Avery, our family is french ancestry-wise, so those are common 100% boys names to us. If my next child, whose due in a month, is a boy, his name will be Robin, which a lot of people on here think is a girls name for some reason. My sons name is Tate, which one person once mistook for a girls name. Then again, looking at some of the names listed on here, I consider names like Adrian, Hayden, Mason, Teagan, Quinn, Jamie, Angel, anything that ends in -son besides Allison, to be a 100% boys name, I live in a pretty traditional small town, here naming your daughter names like those, you might as well be naming her Bob.
