    I agree that usually the "y" added into a name makes it look feminine, but somehow Taryn does not fall into that category for me. I love Taryn for a boy!! Oh, how I would love to meet the mom of a little boy named Taryn. I could compliment the heck out of it!!

    I have a close female friend named Taryn, so it's weird for me to imagine it for a girl. But it's not a particularily feminine name, and with a spelling like Taran I can easily see it on a guy.

    Llyod Alexander wrote a pretty well-known series of children's books where one of the main characters is a male Taran. Have you heard of The Black Cauldron?

    I always thought it was a boy's name, I've never heard it on a girl. It just makes me think of Taran from The Black Cauldron, the Disney film based on a series of books.

    The character from the Black Cauldron was my first thought, I don't like it with the Y, it think it looks better spelled Taran or Tarrin
