for contributing to the gendered attitudes that keep men from ever doing or demonstrating as anything even remotely 'effeminate'. You are the women (and men, but most people on this site are women) who will raise or are raising bullies.

Lisa has been used for boys??? Aw, well - guess I was wrong to say that all the parents calling their daughters James and Michael wouldn't give their sons super feminine names. Poor lads, though...!!!

I think it is cute for a girl, but for a boy....... it is not common and it just doesn't feel right to me

They have a girl's page for Howard. I don't think Lisa having a boy page is that far out.

Why is Lisa classified as an unisex name? You should delete this page. Lisa is a girl's name.

I'm very liberal but.........eff no. Every name can't be for both genders. Some names are strictly for girls and some names are strictly for boys. This isn't neutral.
