I love Spencer/ Spenser for a girl. And yup, I did know of one personally. It sounds stylish and dashing on a girl, IMO!
Also, I seriously considered using Zane as a middle name, should I have had a daughter instead of a son. I would spell it Zhane, which is a slavic form of Jane, according to Bruce Lansky.
Orlando would make a cool girls name as well.
Or how about a lovely nature name?
I would also consider Addison, Blake, Shelly, etc. These names have a soft sound, even though they are traditionally masculine. "Middle of the road" unisex names work better. I once knew a girl named Frank, nn "Frankie". It was a dreadful name which did not suit her and caused her much pathos.Mommy to Travis Nevin 05/12

What are your other children's names? Think of the next one in the context of her siblings and whether or not her 'boy' name will make her feel different from her siblings or if she'll not like that (if you have any girls already) her sister(s) gets to have a 'pretty' name and she has a boy's name. She might not mind it later but in childhood a name that sounds mismatched to her gender can be pretty difficult.
I know I would have been mortified as a little girly girl to have had a name that either boys in my class had, or classmates' brothers had. Now that I'm fully an adult of course I'd be able to deal, but I'd always wonder why my parents didn't want me to have a feminine name.
A friend's mom's name is M!que pronounced like Mike, and they very much did wish for a boy, so that's stuck with me.
