Oh, wow, I’m sorry that you had to deal with that! Yes, I think this woman overreacted and definitely was out of line in the way she accused you and pointed you out, specifically, for ruining boys’ names by feminizing them. I wouldn’t take it too personally, even though she did make it personal. At the end of the day, it is your choice to use a unisex name - [name]Cameron[/name] and its variants are unisex, not distinctly masculine or feminine, in this day and age! - for your daughter, just like she made a conscious choice to use [name]Cameron[/name] for her son, whether or not she knew it was unisex at the time. That’s her burden to bear, not yours.
I mean, personally, I still think [name]Cameron[/name] sounds masculine and strong, so I don’t think her son has anything to worry about in terms of being seen as a light-weight, or whatever she’s worried about. But, at the same time, if [name]Cameron[/name] [name]Diaz[/name] proves anything, [name]Cameron[/name] can be subtly feminine and beautiful on a woman, too. The only reason I think “boy” when I hear [name]Cameron[/name] now is because my roommate has an ex-boyfriend named [name]Cameron[/name]…
PS That was really nice of her to suggest [name]Amy[/name] and [name]Ella[/name] to you when you were obviously interested in [name]Camryn[/name]. The least she could have done was suggest [name]Camille[/name], a distinctly feminine name that shares many aspects of [name]Camryn[/name]! I think she might just be unnerved by the fact that someone is using her son’s name, regardless of whether or not it’s for a boy or girl.
