Dick Silk Says:


"Silk" is also a masculine name, as it is derived from "one who deals in Silk", being a merchant title, such as "Smith," "Wright," "Cooper," etc. It's also the name of an all-male, American R&B musical group. It is mostly a surname, and as such, follows the male lineage, rather than the female. I submit that listing "Silk" as a gender F type name is incorrect and should be changed to M. Thank you.
