    I love Frost for a boy! The girls' names I'm not struck by for either gender and bar maybe Mistral, None of the other boys' names make me go 'wow'.

    Interesting. Holly and Crystall (I wonder if it's pronounced differently from Crystal because of the double Ls) in particular. I wouldn't use them myself, but I think it's nice to see girls names on boys (when boys names on girls are widely accepted, why not the other way around as well?) As for the other boys names, I really like Galen, Frost, Rhys and Taranis.

    The other day I met a little boy named Vinter (Danish equivalent of Winter), thought that was pretty cool.

    Orla is actually predominantly used on boys here in Scandinavia.

    I liked Holly and Aisling actually, on these characters. Holly is very aggressive and Aisling is very mysterious. I like seeing it too even if I wouldn't have used those names on boys. I keep a list of all the boys I've met with girl names. ^_^

    I've actually met two boys named Winter And two that were Willow (one by birth, the other by choice).

    I loathe boy names on girls, but for some reason, girls names on boys isn't such a big deal. I mean, sometimes I think it can be a little tacky, but it's never like, "You named your son Ashley? Pshhh." Because it was a boys name. Is that weird?

    Holly and Crystal don't strike me as that odd. One is a plant and the other is a rock. Crystal could even go by Chris (Crys?).

    My favorite "girl's name on a boy" is Jayne Cobb from Firefly. He's basically the exact opposite of what you would expect a guy named Jane to look and act like.
