    I know a girl that was named a boy name bc her mom thought it would help her in the business world. It actually really fits her and doesn’t make her masculine at all.

    The only “girl” name that I like for a boy would be Kayson.
    I also like Keegan for a little boy, even tho its it’s a unisex name.

    But what makes a name unisex? Most unisex names were girl or boy names until they started being used on the other gender, now they are considered unisex-like Jordan, Skylar, Peyton, or Taylor. If people started naming their sons Rose, it would then be unisex.

    Silly reason not to use the name you like best. You have absolutely no control over how your child feels about their given name no matter what it is. Doesn't matter if you name him Madison or Benjamin or Angel or Giuseppe, there's a chance he won't like it or that it will embarrass him in some way.

    Paris and Ashley are both originally masculine names. I like Hyacinth and Willow on boys. My son's name, Caspian, is clearly masculine in the West. However, I've met a few Iranian girls by this name.

    Funny though that people only bring up embarrassment for boys. Why is it embarrassing for a boy to have a feminine name and not for a girl to have a masculine name? We often call my son Cassy as his nickname. I hope he embraces his femininity. If anyone makes fun of him, it's a sign that their parents have an issue.

I don't know that I've ever seen a parent actually appreciate this style because they want their daughter to have "masculine qualities" or somehow game a system by briefly confusing a hiring manager. Maybe in the 80's that was the case, but not now.
    I literally had an experience where someone directly said this to me. I have a friend who has daughters named L0gan and Gr1ffin. When she was pregnant with L0gan, my daughter was already born. We were at a dinner and her husband was saying how they had considered Jul1ette, but ultimately decided that they wanted a "more masculine" name. They felt that it was a "stronger" name. With their second, Gr1ffin, they were originally pregnant with twins. They had decided on Gr1ffin for one, regardless of whether it was a girl or a boy. I asked why not consider something like Cassidy. Her husband's reply was that it was too girly for a boy, and "not as strong".

    So not about giving them a leg up in the world... although I think many people make that decision consciously or subconsciously. However, MANY people see femininity as weakness and undesirable for a boy. Masculinity, however, is strength and desirable for a girl.

    The thing about this is that word names as far as I feel at least are words and not super make or female outside of their usage, like girls have gotten flower names, boys more named for their fathers ...
    Ashley for example took a hard turn for girls from boys and Ash still held on on the boys side.
    But it's been used for both boys and girls.
    I heard someone say something once that resonated ... Unless he's a football player of something ...
    In reference to his son carrying a name with more feminine associations. He didn't feel the child could carry it unless he was really tough. Your thoughts are good... Why? Are we teaching that anything feminine in any way even by association is 'bad' and unfit for a boy? Is it just cultural? Can girls play with trucks but boys can't play with dolls? A lot of this is more recent, there was a time when kids played with 'toys' all colors were fair game and if you met an Ashley he was more than likely a boy. Many names had feminine forms, Eden w as a word and likely a boy... You may choose qualities to give in their name... Catherine meaning pure... And you might call your first 10 kids after your parents and siblings and yourselves... With cultural connections and not living in a town where men are 50% Thomas, 40% John and 10% something like William and George... We see the options... There have even been times when a parent may flip open the Bible and choose the word of name they found there.
    Personally I really like Grace for a boy Grayson has a similar sound and BOY feel with the son ending but why not just the word if you're so inclined. So good subject... My answer is name your child the name that you feel is theirs and don't win for any gender but do allow yourself to consider it fully. Does he really want to be Betsy? Probably that would envoke teasing, consider that... Because the world's impression of him will affect him... Ellie? Might be ok... There are names that are so anciently only to one gender like Elizabeth that you get the boy named Sue thing... In that type of case I would recommend against trying to shift things... But Ashley & Paris which are both unisex are totally fair game... And Rose is a word/ flower name... I personally think it's fine
