timeisbliss Says:


I named my first son, "Bellamy" and I haven't ran into any other Bellamys yet! But he seems comfortable with his name but he's only 4 years old. I named him after the frontman of Muse, Matthew Bellamy.

caetano Says:


I love this one for a boy, thanks to The 100.

yvonne_virginia Says:


I just cannot like this name. It sounds like a type of criminal offense to me.

lcates Says:


I'm absolutely in love with this name. It sounds very masculine to me and I think it would be very handsome on a boy!

AldabellaxWulfe Says:


For a girl, this is just another masculine name turned 'unisex', and also just another 'bel' name to go with the millions of other Annabels, Isabelles, Bellas etc. But for a boy, it's traditionally masculine, it's very prim and proper, and with Bellamy Blake from the modern and current The 100 series being at the forefront in terms of Bellamy's gender connotations - is a very strong, masculine choice without it being stereotypically masculine. Overall, it's a pretty cool choice.

Paige_Mackenzie Says:


This has become one of my favorites for a boy since I have found it. Even with the "Bell" part of it, I still find it to sound very masculine.
