    I usually find that the parents who give their daughters VERY masculine names are pretentious twats. ((No offense meant to anyone on here who may have done this, I'm speaking only of those people that I know personally))

    When I was in college, one of my philosophy TAs was pregnant during our first semester. We got a 2 hour long tirade about how she was naming her little girl William because of the gender bias of our fear mongering society..blah blah. She was ridiculous. And did, actually, name her daughter William Landry.

    I also know a female Freddie (not a nickname), a female Eli and a female James.

    Though I will admit, I've always had a bit of a soft spot for James on females. It's got a very feminine appeal to me and I can picture a female James in my head more readily than I can picture a male James.

    a girl being nicknamed James, like if her name was Jamesina or Jemima or Jemma or Jamie. I can imagine all sorts of cute nicknames. That does seem different than putting it on the birth certificate though.

    I taught a cute kid named Alexandra. She went by Max; it was sweet on her. But I'm glad she wasn't officially named Maxwell Ludwig in the first place.

    It really annoys me as well. There are so many amazing girls names (I like a lot more girls names than boys names) and I don't see why people are using boys names. I don't mind if it's just nicknames that happen to be the same as boys nns, like Theo (for Theodora) or Rory (for Aurora), but for full names...no.

    I honestly wonder why this subject is brought up so often. We all know that when this subject is brought up things usually get heated and often times there is rudeness.

    My thoughts exactly. My first thought? I better just stay out of this one.

    My ONLY thing to add... I usually see it the other way around from people wanting to give their daughter a 'masculine' name. Usually (of course, not always), the names that go to girls already have a somewhat feminine quality. Ending in -ey or -ah, etc. I think it's more likely that the name makes the parents think feminine. (The already mentioned Ashley, Avery, Rory, etc...)
