    So using something with thousands of years of use on the opposite gender only works when naming girls?

    I'm not fond of Phaedra but I love that Peaches is willing to buck the trend.

    Not my favorite, but it definitely fits with the rest of the family.

    I don't like Phaedra (or Astala, for that matter) for a boy or a girl. Didn't she announce that'd be his name six months ago?

    Still think it's odd on a boy but there definitely has been worse celebrity baby names.
    It's so lovely that he was born on Paula's birthday, I'm sure that means a lot to Peaches.
