I'd highly recommend spelling it as Forest over Forrest (a tribute to the Civil War general). I actually find Forest and Forrest to be highly masculine names (I'm Southern, so I know a lot of male Forrests), so I would agree that it is best as a mn. It's nice to have a fn that indicates she's female for substitute teachers, job interviews, telemarketers, etc. Moreover, if Forrest/ Forest ever shoots up on the boy charts, she'd have another option to fall back on. Even though I'm generally opposed to using masculine names on girls, I think that this one is an exception as there's a really cool story behind it. It's much better than saying "I named you Forest, just because I thought it was funky." I also had a dream years ago (before I even met my husband), where I saw a son and a daughter. I heard myself yell "Emiliana!!!" at the girl, then woke up. So, if I ever have a daughter, she will be named Emiliana (a name I don't think I'd previously even heard). Eliza Forest is beautiful, and I think she'll be happy to have a story with the name.Emiliana Pari (or Valentina Hasti?) Debuts July 2014Soren Pasha, Caspian Bardia

I've never been one to really get into MTV, and didn't know they had a show like that. I have a Google mission tonight!

I honestly am slightly embarrassed I remember that Forrest-on-a-girl-MTV-show anecdote, haha. Such a random reference. I can't remember what the show was called, though.Lucia
