    Very obvious nature vibe. If that doesn't bother you (doesn't bother me ), then go for it.

    River is on the top of my list. Not sure if I can help you with the femininity as I struggle with that issue myself. I personally think of it as a masculine name, but I know there are those in the world who would lean to thinking it as feminine. And it doesn't help that I paired it with the name Ashley, haha. But Ashley is supposed to be a masculine name, so blah. Anyway, I don't think of it as a big issue as River IS a unisex name, and is currently much stronger on the boy side to top it off.

    2012 U.S. SS top baby names rank for River:
    407 for boys.
    And 686 for girls.

    Also, it really depends on where you live, but I think that there are probably a lot more tease-able names out there on the playground today.

    tfzolghadr had some lovely suggestions.. either for a first name or to go with River as a middle.

    Good luck!

    I love River on a boy! Yes, you get a nature-y vibe going with Maple, but I think it's a great vibe to have. I can't imagine anyone making fun of River, honestly. I can't even make up any jokes about it.

    P.S. I think River Henry would be perfection.

    I think River is a beautiful name for a boy. Every name starts somewhere! River can be ferocious and wild as well as soft. I love it but like you, my partner isn't keen. He feels it may be too unusual. It goes perfectly with Maple. Good luck!

    i absolutley adore both of thoes names!

    i absoltuley adore both of thoes names! (expecially River) Now i can see where he might get a little teased about being named after something in nature but i dont think it'll last long. its soo cute! and for Maple is cute too but i personally would use it for a middle name. so if your husband ends up not wanting to name your baby River or Maple you could always use it as a middle name(:

    I already have a Maple! So it's silly that I worry about teasing with River - I guess I just think boys might have a harder time with a "pretty" name rather than a strong one.
