    "Girl" Names for Boys

    I understand that many parents want to name their girls boys names because of the masculine qualities or the belief that people will think she is a he on applications. However, I think this just downplays feminine qualities and strength, power, fortitude and ambition are all those qualities. So if you were gonna name a boy without thinking about the gender behind the name, what would it be?

    For me I've always loved Paris, Ashley and Rose for a boy

    I think Paris has a history of use as a male name dating back quite a ways, and Ashley more recently. I think Rose/Roisin(ro-SHEEN) could work as a boys names pretty easily, too, just based on sound. I can't really think of any decidedly feminine names that I love for a boy but I'm sure there are lots that would work! Especially in the nature/word names family (ie. jade, clover, dove, verity)

    Everybody says Sasha is a girl’s name but I’ve always loved it for a boy and have kept it on my boy’s list for years.

    I also like Hilary, but that’s mostly due to Captain Hilary Becker from Primeval lol.

    Ashley, Morgan, and Avery aren’t too bad either, but I do prefer Avery for a girl.

    I mean, I really like Luca and Finley, which I guess could be considered girls names, but they're really unisex.

    There's no classically feminine names I can think of that I prefer/like on a boy, I'm not sure why- It's likely because of associations. A genuinely feminine name I like is Arwen, and I could potentially see that name on a male, if my associations left my mind.

    Most unisex names I prefer on a boy. I love Bellamy, Marlowe, Rowan, Sailor, Sloane, River, Harper, and Kit on boys. I don’t think there are any girls names I like on boys. And babattee-I don’t even consider Luca to be unisex. It’s 100% a classic boys name to me!

    I really like Morgan, Bailey and Avery for a boy. Mackenzie isn’t too bad either, although I do know a couple of girls with that name. Some other ones I like are Ellis, Auden and Sidney.

    Luca is a feminine Hungarian name, a form of Lucia! I still prefer it for boys though.

    I was just thinking about this to myself. There’s a lot of unisex/girl names that I can appreciate for boys even if I don’t necessarily like them. Avery comes to mind, as does Jade.

    I have a GP crush on Jasmine for a boy. I also think Lark would work well for a boy. I knew a boy named McKenna who pulled it off really well.

    Remy
    Ariel
    Aspen
    Micah
    Azaiah
    Jada

    Bayleigh
    Sloane
    Ashley
    Gayle
    Valentine
    Harper
    Sasha
    Ivy
    Lark
    Willow


    I think many feminine names can work for boys, just like masculine names work for girls.
