Please stop with your "girly name" rubbish, Nameberry. Reece is the Anglicised version of the ancient Welsh boys' name Rhys. It's a well known boys' name, at least here in the UK. You even say Reese is not in the top 1000 girl's names in the US either so it's not even a cultural thing. Reese Witherspoon does NOT make it a girl's name! The same as Drew Barrymore does not make me think the short form of Andrew is a girl's name, Blake Lively does not make me think Blake is a girl's name, and Cameron Diaz does not make the Scottish classic any less beautiful, strong or masculine. Yes, there is an odd trend in America at the moment to give little girls traditionally masculine names. While I am not personally a fan of it, there's nothing you can do about it really. I even see some logic in it for normal parents - an androgynous name could give a girl the edge over "Tallulah-Belle" or "Aaliyah-Mae" when applying for jobs in the real, sexist world. However, this still means that the little Ryans, Coles, Spencers, James', Wyatts, Emorys and Reeces in pink tutus and pigtails are little girl's with traditionally male names. It does not make Ryan, Cole, Spencer, James, Wyatt, Emory and Reece "girly names". Thank you.
