Why is this not logged as a boys name??? It is popularly known on for a boy and probably because of that has been used more on boys... weird system...

Since the description says it was originally male, it should have a blue page and at least a short description! I hate how they list such names as female only, but happily give pink pages to names like Rex and Dexter, which are very scarcely if at all used on a female.

I am also disappointed that this name isn't listed as a boy name!

This would make a cute nickname for Patience.

Not as good?

Although this is also cute for a girl kind of disappointing that it isn't under as a boys name.... Because technically it is!!!! Especially because the only reference they have for it is a male........ My son is named this and I looooove it still!!! He gets so many compliments on his name and he likes it too! We also call him Pace sometimes for short! :)

My husband and I are totally sold on this if our lil' seed is a girl. When we were newly together we watched every episode of Dawson's Creek together (at least seasons 1-4, when it was good). We laughed, we cried, we joined Team Pacey. It may seem a little silly to name a baby after a guy on a tv show, but I think, for a girl, it sounds whimsical and fun, totally unique without being too weird or hard to spell. I love it.
