    River and Sky/Skye for a boy?

    I've recently been severely crushing on River and Sky/Skye on a boy. But do you think they'd manage well as first names? Are they too 'girlish' now? Would they even age well?

    Thank you for the help!

    I don't think anyone would think twice about River on a boy, but Sky might come off as girly. Personally I think Sky would be great on a boy. Why not?

    I agree that River is more of a boys name.

    I feel like Skylar could work better as a boy's name than Skye, mainly because Rachel Zoe named her son that, so to me it makes sense.

    Our neighbor is named Sky. He's 15 and pulls it off admirably. Then again, a sweetheart who plays the sax can pull off just about anything. Because he is so musical, I always associate my neighbor with Skye Masterson in Guys and Dolls. I sing the songs to him periodically. He's never seen the musical.

    I like both names, but not enough to use. River is all boy in my opinion. It feels more masculine than feminine. I don't like just Sky/Skye by itself for a boy. I prefer Skylar nicknamed Sky. They do sound a bit juvenile to me, but I think they will age fine.
