The name Willow for a boy?

Personally, I don't find it to have a sound that leans one way or the other. However, it ranked 171 for girls in 2012, but didn't chart for boys. My guess is that people will consider it a "girl" name, and that it would be quite a bit like naming a son Ashley now, post the girl takeover. Although Ashley had a decent history as a boy's name before, which I don't believe Willow ever has. I could be wrong about that though!Tara, proud mama to a Honey Badger

It may just be because I know only girls named Willow, but I wouldn't consider it a boys name, sorry.Mom to 1 and 1 on the way!

I actually know 2 male Willow's now. One is about 13 and the other is closer to my age (20s). Neither use nicknames. I think it works fine on a boy as it sounds a good deal like other male names such as Milo, Hugo, etc. I do think most people will think "girl" when they see it though, so you'd have to be prepared for that, but it does have Will if he wants it.http://www.amazon.com/Angel-Blackwood/e/B00SARZLFY -- My Amazon Author Page
