    Does Tennyson sound girly to you?

    Ive received responses that Tennyson is better suited for a female.

    I was considering it for a future son.

    I don't think it's girly at all. I think it's a handsome name. Went to high school with a Tennyson (male).
    I suppose someone could name a daughter Tennyson but that doesn't make it a female name to me.

    I don't think anything with "son" can be girly. (even Madison and Addison and the like) And I like leaving surname names to the boys.

    I guess I can see how it could sound "girly," since people are naming their kids Emerson and Addison and Anniston, etc.... But, I personally have only ever considered it a boys' name. I think that anything that ends in -son will always be fair game for boys!!!!!

    pet peeves: nicknames as given names; unconventional spellings; masculine names on girls
    not-so-guilty pleasures: five-syllable girls' names; virtue and nature names; over-the-top antique names for boys
    (if i repeat name suggestions in a thread, it's because i like them! no apologies here for repeats of great names! )

    IF YOU LOVE IT, USE IT!
