Jocelyn on a boy?
I've kinda been crushing on Jocelyn for a boy ever since reading Elizabeth Goudge's novel, A City of Bells, set in a post-WW1 English cathedral town and featuring a male protagonist named Jocelyn. Like Aubrey, Hilary and others, Jocelyn was once a male name. It was used for boys in medieval times and has seen some more recent use in England, I think, and it's apparently still used for boys in Canada, where Jocelyn is considered more masculine and Jocelyne feminine.
However, I just don't think it would work here in the US with Jocelyn as high as it is for girls, even though I'm toying with different spellings. I could be wrong, though, so I'm posting a poll to help me decide whether this name will have to remain a guilty pleasure for me! Feel free to post your thoughts."He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names."

I lovelovelove Joscelin! I like Jocelyn, I know guys named Jocelyn (Jocelyne is the girl name to me), but I never loved it… however, Joscelin really seals the deal for me.
Aaaaand I just realized we've already discussed this, hahaha.
In any case, you have my full support for Jocelyn/ Jocelin/ Joscelin!
