We had also considered Riley, Jordan and Sidney lady-T 5 years my mum named me Toni. where i live it is eniterly a male name. people still find it a shock when i tell them my name especially older people...im used to it now..growing up i hated it.. now i think i would like to name my girl with a name that could be used for both.. something like Alex, Max, Sam, momxthree 5 years Our daughter's name is Ryan. She loves it and so do we! 5 years My little girl's name is Masyn Paige. & it fits her perfectly. :) 5 years I have 2 daughers, Rylee and Reese. I'm expecting my third girl...can't decide if I want to stick with another R name, or switch it up. I love Avery Rose...but if we stick with R, Rhea and Ryan are on my list....suggestions??? 5 years I like girls names that have options to have a masculine nickname. Like Francis = Frankie, charlene = charlie, Josephine = Joey, Samantha = Sam, Willamina = Billie. That way she can choose what suits her. ajoy82 5 years I love masculine names for girls. I have a masculine name and I've always loved my name. My name is AJ... not very many ladies named AJ :) If I have a little girl I plan to give her a masculine name. DanniG 5 years my daughters names are Sashi, Shuyler and my son's name is Rhys. I like names that r different but r not weird. Shuyler is unisex, but it fits her perfectly. 5 years Me and my husband are going to name our daughter Logan. For some odd reason I think Logan would make a very nice name for a girl, it may just be me. 5 years That's funny someone else mentioned Tatum. My 5 year olds named Tatum and I have never known anyone else with that name. My 2 1/2 year old is Violet. I just had my 3rd, another baby girl. She is Anastasia Riley. sylviamcdanyel 5 years We named her Charlotte, but call her Charlie. The other one is Ruby. pinkprincess1101 5 years I love the name Kennedy for a girl of course only for the middle name. Pets 5 years When I was little, all I wanted was a "girly name," preferably ending in an "a" — I love my name now, but still insist on having my entire (first, middle and last) name written on everything since, without it, people seeing my name could assume I was male . . . and my first-last also sounds like a law firm (no offense to law firms). 5 years We named our baby girl Kennedy Joley (gave her a girly middle name). Other names on my list were Dylan, and Bailey. pinkprincess1101 5 years I love boy names for girls my daughters middle name is Renee if I were to have another girl her middle name will be Devin or Riley. 5 years My daughter's name is CharleeAnne (one name together) People put space between Charlee and Anne. I like it together cause it gives a feminine touch to it. We do call her Charlee most of the time and adding the "e" instead of "i" (Charlie) runningesq 5 years I LOVE these names!! Quinn, Peyton, London, Alexandria. beautiful ! gigly_grl 5 years haha I have a masculine name, and all it got me was a LOT of trouble when I was younger. Now it's still an occassional issue but a lot easier to work with (I like to think people are more open-minded)... never went into law though :) FrankiLee 5 years We named our daughter Tatum. I have absolutely adored it for years, and always knew if I had a girl, I would give her that name! She is definitely a girly-girl at this point despite her name, but who knows how she will turn out in the years to come. I love "masculine" girls names. Zivanod 5 years Quinn was a name we were considering for our little girl. We know of at least 7 Riley's (all girls) under 5 so that name (which we like) is out. In the end, we will be going with a more girly name - Sadie, when she is born. Kimpossible 5 years Quinn is a great name. Admittedly I also associate it more with boys, probably from the song The Mighty Quinn? But still a really nice name! 5 years None of the names in the article or shared strike me as "masculine." Sure, some may traditionally be a boy's name or half and half, but they don't have that masculine feel to them, in my opinion. And most appeal to me much more as girl names, like Peyton and Riley, and sound odd on men. babysugar 5 years We gave our daughter a masculine name but when you say her full name, it sounds very girly. She's very feminine at this point in her life. Who knows what she'll be like in 10 or 30 years from now. luckyme 5 years Quinn was on our list, I love that one too. Then my cousin named his dog Quinn (coincidentally, a little girl as well), so we couldn't use it anymore. Beauty 5 years Quinn's a great name. Love it!
