    Yes, and I find this very annoying, which probably explains why I dislike boys names on girls. Once a boys name "goes to the girls", it never goes back. Think of Ashley, Evelyn, Kelly, etc. You could use these names on a boy, but I'd bet most people would consider them "girly" names. When a parent chooses a "male" name for their daughter, I don't think it's necessarily a deliberate comment on feminism, but I agree it's an admission that masculinity is preferable to femininity (if that makes sense). I guess, maybe, I just prefer girls names on girls and boys names on boys! I suppose I'm rather conservative in my naming tastes
