Boy Names Dads Like More Than Moms

All parents bring their experiences with their own names to bear on the naming of a child, which is why dads may sometimes have stronger feelings about boy names while moms may be more sensitive around names for girls. Traditionally, dads have a preference for strong classic or he-man names for their sons, names that confer a clear measure of masculinity on a baby boy. Dads may also be more likely to favor names that reference athletes or sports, cool guys or rock gods, like the choices here.
