    Bay is the name of a female character on a teen show on the ABC Family Channel called Switched At Birth. So...to me, it's been done before - but I definitely think pink when I hear it.

    To me it's a definite unisex name, like Gray, Frost, Lake, etc. I think it's great, but I can't see it as a first name on either a boy or girl. I love it as a middle though!

    I think it's very pretty and serene.

    Bayla/Baila (first syllable like Bay) is a family name for me, I considered Bay as a variant, but I really prefer Belle or Blythe for single-syllable B names, honestly. I do prefer Bay to Bayley - but I really hate Bayley, so big deal, right?
    All of this.

    I know a little Bay (girl) but have always thought it would be better in the middle, just because I love long names with plenty of nickname potential. Also, I think of animals baying in their stalls, which may be a little strange of me... (I'm now having that feeling where I'm not sure if I've made a word up or not?) Blythe, as a previous poster mentioned, would be a lovely alternative - Blythe Ophelia being the combination I've always envisioned, but that's just me. Good luck!
