I would say for girl.  But I’m all for gender neutral. I have a “boy” name even tho it’s unisex its commonly for boy. I like the name Solace though.

What is a rainbow baby?

I’ll be honest…I’m not a fan of the name for either boy or girl. But I’m more of a traditional name person anyway.

Solace as in “take comfort in a time of distress”?

I don’t really like it. But I guess it could work for a boy or a girl.

Honestly.. I really really love it. I’ve never been a fan of traditional names and this one sounds really beautiful. I love unisex names (like I am fully planning on naming my future daughter Finn) and I actually might steal this one day haha. I get how people can say that it doesn’t have the greatest meaning but if you really think about it…to be someones solace is a great thing, this name is very comforting to me, it’s even more perfect because he’s your rainbow baby…your solace.

Honestly – I don’t like it one bit, on either gender. It sounds to me like “soul-less” and I’m not a fan of baby names that have a bigger meaning.

zoraneale :  Oh okay, I get it now. I can also appreciate the meaning behind that choice better now (not saying i like it now, but at least I understand more). I’m so sorry for your loss and good luck with your rainbow baby!

I’m so sorry for you loss, but I’m not a fan of eulogizing someone else with a new infant’s name. Naming someone after someone else is different, but specifically naming them by indicating that they are your consolation seems kind of burdensome.

I’m not a fan and I tend to prefer quirky names. I like Hollis more and it kind of sorta sounds similar.

I would totally call him Shoelace if I was in school with him.

I’m not loving Solace.  For a while I was really liking the name Sterling.

garnobella :  Haha sorry! You’re absolutely right – as long as you and your husband love it, that’s all that matters. I did consider not commenting, but I figure it’s always good to hear the ‘bad’ sides of decisions before you go with them. If you still love it, then great! I kind of wish someone had warned my parents how many people would eff up my name. Whether that would have changed their minds or not who knows, but I get so sick of correcting people when it isn’t that hard.

I appreciate the sentiment but really dislike that name, especially for a boy. I also don’t agree that “as long as you and your husband love it, that’s all that matters.” It is important to decide on a name you both love that will not disadvantage the person bearing the name. You need to consider that this boy, then man, wil have to contend with this name through school, applying for jobs, etc in real life. Also not sure about this baby’s name being about your loss.

I’m sorry for your loss and happy for you! 🙂
