    Which part is condescending? Asking you to not use a name that is most typically associated with males and then giving you a reason why I'm asking you? Unisex names are not my taste but I gave you a suggestion regardless.

    You suggested I not use a boyish name. Which happens to be every name on my list. Would you do the same if someone were asking about ultra feminine names? Just suggest they don't use one because you don't like them? "If you MUST use something you like, please use the ones I hate the least." Sound condescending now?

    I actually used the term "very boyish", which is a term you used in your original post. I made sure to differentiate "boyish" from "very boyish".

    I meant that my style is very...*pause*... boyish/masculine/unisex. Not very boyish. But I do like very boyish and typically masculine names for girls, that's my taste. Just like liking traditional or classic names is a taste.

    I consider my Rowan to be a genius... but she's only 18 months old, haha. I'm sure she'll love reading, both of us do.
