I just don't think it's "unique" anymore to name girls with boy names. I know girls named Shane & Ryan. And I just met a young lady named Lucas. I've also heard of girls sporting the names Logan, Peyton, Jayden & Braden. A friend was telling me a teenage boy was getting teased by other kids on his block for having a girl's name. His name is Reilly (he was named before it was popular to give it to girls). A girl with a boy's name will not be teased as much growing up as a boy with a "girl's" name.

That's how it is around here, too. In parts of Florida, Kaylee comes from the ancient Sumerian, meaning "my mama got knocked up at sixteen".

I actually feel bad for my friend named Kaleigh. She spelled her name right and her parents gave it to her because she's Irish and it's and Irish name. She is also 24 so this is way before it was trendy. Now shes in a world of Kaylee, Kailee, KayLiis and so on...

My daughter is Eden, and we get comments about hers being an unusual name. What doesn't necessarily bother me, but definitely baffles me is how often Eden is mistaken for a boys' name. I suppose it just sounds so utterly feminine to me, I can't imagine a male going by the name. I guess the male version would be Aiden, but I'm glad it's not that common yet! Also, I don't associate it with the over-abundance of "-den" names (Brayden, Jayden, Caiden). But that's just me.
