    Would this stop you? (Riley)

    I really like the name Riley for a boy, but the name is in the top 50 for girls. I don't think it would be odd to meet a boy named Riley, as I know several - boys my own age and toddlers as well. But would the unisex popularity stop you from using it?

    No, it wouldn't. Giving a boy a name that is more popular for girls will not affect his masculinity in any way.

    ♀ | Helen ◊ Cora ◊ Anne ◊ Jane ◊ Caroline ◊ Catherine ◊ Gwen ◊ Georgia ◊ Elizabeth ◊ Lydia

    It definitely wouldn't stop me. Riley is, and always will be, a boys' name, and it's in bad taste when used for a girl.

    It definitely wouldn't stop me. It's a fine name for a boy, IMO. (:

    Riley is more popular for a boy here so i find it great for a boy and it wouldn't stop me even if it was the other way
