    I love boy names for girls- Ryan, Taylor, Chris, Cameran, etc.  Girl names for boys, I don’t like as much, because I think boys get teased more for that.  But if it’s an actual unisex name I LOVE it both ways!

    I actually really like the names Kyle and Ryan for a girl (: I would love to name my daughter Charlotte and then call her Charlie. That way she could decide for herself what she would like to be called, and a “boy” name would still be a possibility.

    There are quite a few unisex names that I like and if the perfect one came along, I would hesitate to give it to my kid. As for giving boy names to a girl or vice versa, I agree with the PP’s, there are far more boy names that will work for a girl than girl names that will work for a boy. I can’t help but secretly snicker every time I meet or hear of a male “Ashley”. I don’t get it.

    @sugarpea: +1 for Charlotte/Charlie. Too bad Darling Husband has completely nixed the name.

    Not a fan and I have one.  It’s an old family name…but it’s almost exclusively been saved for sons and I have three little cousins that are all named the same.  All boys.  It’s always gotten on my nerves a little…

    We are naming our little girl Charlie but to make it more girly we decided to spell it  without the E, like this…… Charli 🙂

    I don’t care one way or the other on this. Androgynous names are fine as are boy names for girls and vice versa.  Not really a subject I have a strong opinion on.

    I really like the name Holland and think its appropriate for a boy or a girl so I guess I’m on the androgynous name band wagon. 🙂
