    Completely this - I know several Ruaraidh/Rorys(all male) and simply cannot imagine a girl one.

    But you wouldn't call a daughter Peter, would you? It means rock/stone but is undeniably for boys.

    (Arghh, sorry if that sounded snarky or too rude but I have loved Jasper (on a boy) since I was about six, and I can't bear to think that he might have girls in his class with the same name as him!...I got a bit carried away, and I do agree, Jasper sounds like Vesper and Hespera. And actually, I like Jade on a boy. I never thought about it before just now, but it rhymes with Cade etc. and could even perhaps be a nickname for Jayden?) Sorry for the rant/paragraph of explanation, haha!

    Also, I would love Adair to be used more for boys again. So handsome, and it came from Edgar. I mean, you'd never call a girl Edgar, would you?

    Some good ones already mentioned: Kendall (I've never seen this as female - I was blown away a few years ago when someone told me it was a girls' name), Rory, Rowan, Avery (my nephew's name), Ashley, Riley

    My suggestion is Jocelyn. I've known several men by this name. It seems to be in the boy camp in French.
    Miriam ~ Helena ~ Estella ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Alice ~ Marilla ~ Sarah
    Paul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel

    LOL, no need to apologize. I'm not that sensitive.

    I love nature names and for many of them I don't associate a gender. I like Jasper not because it means "rock" like Peter or because it sounds like other girl names but because it's an actual rock that I think is gorgeous. My first exposure to Jasper was the stones mentioned in the Bible. To me it's just a thing in nature, like Lark or Briar or Forest (I love all 3 regardless of gender), that people occasionally use as a name.

    I agree that the names that were posted should go back to the boys, especially Darcy, Riley, and Rowan.
