    I think you can get away with it when they are more modern "boy" names, such as Logan and Taylor, but the old school names, James, Michael, Peter, etc. don't seem to work as well as unisex names. Funny, you never see a trend of giving a boy a traditionally "girl" name. No celebs naming their sons Rebecca or Christina

    True....and I also have a daughter named Taylor and a McKenzie, too. All unisex names.

    I do have a friend with a boy named Ashley...always reminds me of Gone With the Wind.

    They'll end up calling her Jamie I bet.

    I actually kinda like the sound of James for a girl. But, this comes from someone that was introduced to a little girl named Henry and thought that was an awesome name for a girl.

    I like James for a girl, but, well, that's probably because it's my nickname. It does sounds a little staid on its own, whereas as a nickname it's just sort of making it cute (like Jules for Julie).

    My big viking husband likes to mess with conservatives and douchebags he meets by referring to his partner James and watching them get uncomfortable.

    Ryan Reynolds Confirms His & Blake Lively's Baby's Name!








    Ryan Reynolds has finally confirmed the name of his and Blake Lively‘s baby girl – James Reynolds!
    “It is Butternut Summersquash,” the 38-year-old actor joked during a Today Showappearance. “No, it’s out there! It’s out there. It’s James. Everyone knows and I told everyone who would listen that.”
    “Before it was out there I didn’t want to be the first guy screaming it out to the media because as we know, little girls turn into teenage girls and little teenage girls sometimes scan through the archives and go, ‘Why did you do that?’”Ryan added.

    Yes, Ryan. All teenage girls go crazy when they find out that their parents told people what they had named them.

    Ashley was originally a male name. Also Leslie. They were surnames that became first names and were only begun to be used for women in the 20th century.

    Shh..I did have a little "OMG MOM WHY" moment as a teen, when my mom told me what her list of my potential names were. I was almost an Ashley (and a Jessica or Jennifer or Amy). Not bad names mind you, it's just that I had 3 of each in every class, in every grade (except Ashley, Ashley is just too perky a name). Thankfully, my mom worked as an L&D nurse, and saw all of the Amy's/Jessica's/Jennifer's being born, so I ended up as a Jillian (the ONLY Jillian in every class, in every grade, hell I was the only Jill most of the time).

    Apparently there was a small war waged over potential names for me. My paternal grandmother wanted Mary (after her), my maternal grandfather wanted Josephine (he was Joseph) and my grandma lobbied hard for Emma (her name). In the end I was named something completely different.

    I knew I liked you! My daughter is a Jillian. The only Jillian around. Every Jill and Jillian I have ever met has been a very cool chick. The only thing she hated about the name as a child is that they never had Jillian personalized items. She's off to college this fall and she still looks for Jillian items just to see if they exist. Still don't. Not even a Jill.

    I can't remember the last time I saw anything with my name on it. I've seen key chains and mugs with names in mad pageant spellings but not a thing with a nice, safe, sensible name like mine.

    Still you don't even need pageant spellings to 'yooneek' a name - you just have to mangle the accepted pronunciation. I was on a training scheme as a teenager where one of the co-ordinators was called Gilly (Gillian) but pronounced with a hard G instead of the more usual J sound and Ma Kitty used to work with a Deborah whose mother insisted that it should be pronounced Dee-bore-aaaah.

    Did people mispronounce it all the time too? People either pronounced it like million but with a J, or like Jilly-ann, or the totally random Julie-ann (like where is the damn U, you dumbass). I lasted until 1st grade, then I went by Jill.

    Yes, sometimes -- she gets Julian a lot. We purposefully used a J instead of a G so no one would call her Gilligan. She plays percussion and everyone in the drumline has a nickname. Hers is…Gilligan. She thinks its funny now.
