People should give their children a name that they like... However, if you know that the name you like is associated with another gender, SES, etc. you should anticipate potential future problems. Simply saying "It's the problem of xxxx" does nothing... you chose the name knowing full well that it could cause the child issues. So essentially you set your child up to have to be rescued... And while you can teach your child to be confident and what be it, blind resumes, job interviews, career fairs, etc. can be a bit unpleasant when you have an "inappropriate" name...
My idea: Import a foreign name or use a name that is meaningful to you or your family in order to be "unique". If you do name your son Ashley, know and weigh ALL the ramifications. Realize you're doing something not 100% socially acceptable (in the US), and that there could be issues in the future. Be willing to put out the time and effort necessary for dealing with these problems. Also, if your son is angry about it in the future, "the buck stops here"... don't blame society, administrators, teachers, etc... After all, they just reacted to the name in the same way you could've predicted.Emiliana Pari Debuts July 2014Soren Pasha, Caspian Bardia, Raphael
