    Using a name that is more used on the opposite sex; would you?!

    Would you consider not using a name because you see it go more for the opposite sex?!

    It has family meaning but I am worried about her having boys in her class with the same name?..

    Deal breaker or not? My name is Rachel so I never had the worry about a unisex name; just a common one. Unisex name bad growing up or now as an adult?? I don't have personal experience..

    WDYT??

    For a girl? Absolutely not. For a boy? Definitely yes. (So I wouldn't name my daughter Elliot, but I would totally name my son Aubrey.)

    Why? Is there a reason you would for a boy and not for a girl or just because? .

    It depends on the name. I like some names, like Avery, for girls and boys. But I dislike more masculine sounding names, like Logan and Madison, on girls. What is the name you're considering?

    Laine .. I love Lainey as a nn while she is young but Laney is just too childish for a full name to me.

    Lane is 288 in the U.S. for boys but in my state it is like 90 something :'(
    Layne for boys is also 594 in the U.S.
