    Harper. Harper, Harper, Harper. I have a [male] [college-aged] friend named Harper and I think it's so much better on a boy than a girl. Every time I hear about a female Harper I cringe a bit.

    Also, Rory and Aubrey. I met a little male Aubrey the other day and wanted to shake his parents' hands.

    Yes. It's only since coming on here that I realised that this, Rowan, Aubrey and Avery were used as girl's names in the US. They would get some odd looks in the UK, Rory especially. I picture an energetic little boy for Rory, I can't see how it's feminine at all and I can't picture any on a girl really. I don't even know if knowing one would help as I know a female Darcey and it still sounds masculine to me.

    I overwhelmingly prefer Harper for a boy, too. But there is at least a precedence with the estimable Harper Lee, whom, I'm assuming is the inspiration for the latest rash of female Harpers. Atticus and Scout, too, for that matter. And I don't really see Scout as a girl's name, either.

    I've mentioned a few times that Jasper is on my girl list while Jade is on my boy list and have gotten mostly negative feedback. Don't care; they're a rocks. They don't have a gender.
