    I think the argument is very clear. Being male is more desirable than being female, as demonstrated by parents willingness to give their daughters boy names, and unwillingness to their sons girl names. There was another thread on this subject a few weeks ago. Thanks for sharing.

    I admit i have a current girl name combo of Holly Maxwell that i love.... I know i am crazy and many people would frown. I totally get the argument though

    And i am pretty sure Lindsay was traditionally a girls name that can now be used on boys? correct me if i am wrong.

    I think the point here is that a combination like Holly Maxwell wouldn't be seen as "crazy", because it's culturally acceptable and trendy to give girls boys' names. There's nothing unique or wacky about it. A BOY named Holly, on the other hand, would be truly unusual -- not to mention far more subversive.
