Your original post only mentioned clothing. Toys and decor are a totally different story. My niece loves Minnie Mouse and Elmo so her room is full of red & black things. When my cousin (boy) was...
Love Phelan; it means little wolf! I've known a sweet little boy with this name. It's pronounced FAY-lahn.
Phelan & Whelan are anglicizations of the same Irish name. I've also seen it spelled...
Obviously, I love Greer but not Grier. It's unisex but Greer leans feminine while Grier leans masculine.
Prefer Greta over Gretchen
Love Grey as a fn for a boy but as a mn for a girl
I also like...
I like several herb names and most I consider unisex. The ones I only like for girls:
I like Sorrel, Fennel, Yarrow, Juniper, Valerian, Hyssop & Sage for boys
When parents say "I didn't know...." after they've named the kid. Examples:
"I didn't know it was a boy name"
"I didn't know how it was supposed to be spelled/pronounced"
"I didn't know it had...

Are you referring to layettes? I've never seen them in purple. I've only seen:
boys= blue, sometimes dark brown
unisex= yellow, green, beige
I just go off the top of my head. When I ask for suggestions I want people's personal opinions, not a generic list. I might be way off the mark but I'm giving them what I think sounds good. I've...
Obviously, I love Jade & Jasper but on opposite genders than the norm. Jade feels trashy for girls but strong for boys. I like Jasper for both but it feels more beautiful and less lispy on a girl.
I adore Bianca. It makes me think of Eva Gabor (The Rescuers and The Rescuers Down Under were a big deal when I was little). Bianca is exotic but familiar; harsh but undeniably feminine. I love the...
Nyx Eden and Nyx Morgana are lovely. I'd go with something 'bright' to contrast Nyx
I think Nightingale would make an awesome mn, boy or girl

Belle Winter & Willoughby Augustine
Camille Delphine "Delphi"
Ophelia Waverly "Filly"
Wyatt Peregrine "Bird"
Orson Dashiell "Bear"
Mercer Felix "Lucky"
I think they make a great pair! Names starting with the same letter don't annoy me until you hit 4+ kids. Beyond that you can tell that the parents start grasping at straws and get kre8tive to keep...

Draco- this used to be my favorite boy name, long before the HP books were written
Drake- became my alternative after HP ruined Draco but then came the rapper Drake
Aubrey- the rapper Drake (I...
Love Aviva; it's pretty high on my girl list. Don't like Vivi in general but also because the sound isn't present in Aviva. It's akin to nicknaming a Violet, Vivi. Viva or Ava make more sense
Well, you could just name him Masonry.
Other related names:
Brick, Rock, Stone
Granite, Slate, Steel, Clay
Interesting topic! And it's nice to see what feminist naming means to different people
- I've never cared about juniors. If it were really important to my partner and I'd be breaking a long chain...

I'm still scratching my head at these supposedly attacking posts. Where are they? Questioning and disagreeing is not attacking.
Acknowledging differences is not the problem. Generalizing and...

I've been cracking up at people using Meadow Lark as an example of a girly name. I hate basketball but as a sports fan, I know about the legendary Meadowlark Lemon. Yes, a 6ft3 former basketball...

I think it's sexism and homophobia
I can see the 'girl names are less serious' view. It does seem like parents are naming cute little girls and not thinking of these girls being women. Why do we...
No not pretentious, it's lovely. I'm sure people will ask for and accept the pronunciation you give because they will be thrown by the -e at the end.
I love Ocean and Forest, boy or girl. In spite...

I have a friend named Indira. She's in her late 20s. Very sweet and friendly. She's a dancer. I also know a little girl of about 5yrs of age. Also a sweetheart. One is a blue-eyed blonde and the...

I adore Jeremiah (it's my favorite route to Remy). Not wild about Jeremiah Jay but it's not terrible
I'm not a fan of the name but I see it as genderless. Since it's a word and not an established name, like Violet, it's silly to attach a gender to it. Just as if I met a child name Crimson or Teal,...
