Here’s something we hear again and again: naming a boy is hard!

Parents tend to play it safe – or at least safer – when it’s time to name a son. The reasons are many: a tendency to hand down family names, fewer possible variations of popular boys’ names, a narrower definition of what makes a choice appropriately masculine.
