    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.

    The combo Ryan Sutton is too masculine for my comfort level and I don't think two two-syllable names ending in "n" flow well anyway. The combo is too choppy. Neither name is my style but I would advise you to give her the first name Sutton since it's the name you will be calling her. The previous posters have given you some great options.
    All the best,
    Mischa.
