    Ryan Sutton is all boy to me. Maybe Sutton Ryanne or Sutton Rayanne if you plan to call her Sutton anyway? Or even Mary Ryan Sutton ____ if you want her to be obviously female on paper? And calling her by her birth certificate name is unimportant anyway? I think boyish names are cute too...on cute girly girls, but they can be very unfortunate on less cute, less girly girls!

    It sounds really masculine to me. Maybe to make it more girlish you could switch the names and have Sutton Ryan instead? To me, Sutton is a girl's name, so all I would see is a girl.

    Way too masculine for my tastes...I think some of the previous suggestions are wonderful.

    Is there a reason why your husband is so dead set on using his name? I much prefer Sutton to Ryan and if you love Sutton then you should find a feminine name to work in the middle with it, that way if she doesn't love masculine names like you do then she'll have a choice to not be Ryan.

    I have a friend named Tyler and that's about as boyish as it comes and really, she's doing just fine. Most people, you meet them by introducing yourself, so having a 'boy's name' isn't a big deal. I think Ryan Sutton is nice. I would consider doing Sutton Ryan if that's what you will be calling her anyway, and if you really like that better and you're just catering to your hubby. But I don't think it matters aesthetically. Ryan has a nice sound to it and feels fresh on a girl. I say go for it.
