    I couldn't have said it any better. I'm very pro soft names on boys.

    Adlai is very handsome for a boy. Once people actually hear it on a boy their view on it may change.

    I love Adlai for a boy! I remember coming across it in American History (Adlai Stevenson--I don't remember what he was known for, even, just that I loved his name!), and I've loved it ever since. I'm not sure I'd use it up front, but I do like it. I've tossed around Charles Adlai, nn Charlie, lately, but I've decided to go in a different direction.

    I like boy names with lots of vowels, so Adlai is one I have always liked, but thought was probably a little too feminine for modern audiences.
    Names I enjoy:

    Girls: Lucy, Elena, Lake, Sylvie

    Boys: Jack, Eamon, Sylvan, Theo

    I don't see how it's any softer or vowel-ier than Joshua or Seth or Eli. It's just less familiar to many people.

    Adlai is attractive but super feminine. I'd never heard of it before reading this post, and I must say my mind immediately assumed it was a girl's name.
