Names from the book I'm reading: girls names on boys
So, I started reading A Lick of Frost by Laurell K Hamilton. She's got some really interestingly named boys in there and I decided to share them.
These are some girls names on boys in that book:
Crystall -- yes with two Ls
Usna -- It might not be a girl name but it sounds like one
Mixed in with boys named :

Hmm, I don't think I'd ever use Crystal, Holly or Aisling on a boy! Those are all-girl to me. (And Mistral, to me, is a font.) I am fond of Gale, though, and I like the French Jean, though I could certainly never use it now given my second daughter's name.
I'm reading "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao" by Junot Diaz right now. It's a fantastic novel and there are some very interesting names in there, too. The title character's mother is named Hypatia Belicia and his grandfather is Abelard. (Come to think of it, the author's name is pretty awesome, as well.)

I think it would be easier for a girl to have a more boyish name than for a boy to bear a girly name. As for odd names I've run across recently, I know a friend who is a published writer, and the book she's working on has a main character named Hortense. Others?
There was a man named Shepard in a book I'd read recently. Also, on angels, the names Shirley, Goodness, Mercy, and Will ;D Aren, for a boy, also.
