    My post might get pretty long :P

    Here are names I’ve seen on boys IRL, some more often than girls.

    Ashley – I’ve met 2 male Ashley’s both smart and masculine.
    Whitney – He looks like a quarterback with dreads. I’ve never met a female Whtney
    Shannon – lots of these at school
    Brittney – He goes by Britt
    Aubrey – dashing French man I know
    Harper – I’ve never actually met a female Harper, My friend Harper (twin Whistler) is a boy
    Jade – Never met a female Jade, but I know a male Jade and there was a Jade on So You Think You Can Dance
    Angel – I’m one of the only female Angel’s I know
    Bailey – surprisingly, I’ve known several male Bailey’s and only one female
    Willow – Aside from Persephone’s middle. I’ve never met a girl Willow. I know 2 boy Willow’s now though and neither use a nickname.
    Kelly

    Seren -- I've actually known a few male Serens but no girls
    Gale -- never met a girl one
    Noel -- pronounced no-el. I've never met a girl Noel and never met a boy with it pronounced nole.


    Names that need to go back to the boys or could be boys names:

    Monroe -- never understood this on a girl
    Marlowe -- same as Monroe. Marlowe just makes me think of the playwright
    Tempest -- saw someone say "this is a girls name" but why? Why is it a girl name? I've never heard that >.>

    Darcy
    Glenn

    Adair -- I don't get why this is a girl name at all
    Avalon
    Snow
    Romilly -- it's got a cool sound I think would work fine on a boy
    Isabeau -- since it's French, it should mean something to do with handsome, but in any case, it's much more masculine sounding

    Penrose
    Phoenix
    Poe -- never understood why this was a girls name
