    Not in the slightest. Avery is in the top 25 for girls, and I'd still use it for a boy!

    Not at all.
    Eden's on my boys list, and it's viewed as a girls name although it's legitimately unisex and arguably male. I love Riley on boys, moreso than on girls.

    Yes, without a doubt. Boys have a hard line to follow when it comes to a name. Ask men.

    Riley is becoming SUPER popular lately, I know personally 4 people who has named their children this. I feel like this name will become one of those names that everyone has, and when the kid is of class age they'll be like 4 Riley's in every classroom. I had Riley on my list and has since marked it out, I'm sad.. It was such a good name.

    But Riley is a unisex name, I know male and girl Riley's. And the first Riley I heard about was Riley on Buffy the Vampire Slayer (The Riley of BTVS is a guy btw).
