Can I call a boy....

Can I call a boy [name_u]Wyn[/name_u] or [name_u]Wynn[/name_u]? I know it’s masculine in [name_m]Wales[/name_m], but how would it be perceived in the US?

Which spelling would be better for a boy? The mn would be [name_m]Thaddeus[/name_m].

[name_u]Wyn[/name_u] [name_m]Thaddeus[/name_m]
[name_u]Wynn[/name_u] [name_m]Thaddeus[/name_m]

I think it’s completely usable on a boy. If I read it on paper I wouldn’t know if it was a girl or a boy. I prefer the [name_u]Wynn[/name_u] spelling because it looks a bit more substantial. There’s also the spelling [name_u]Win[/name_u] or [name_u]Winn[/name_u], which might be more decidedly boy (short for [name_m]Winston[/name_m]?), but I prefer [name_u]Wynn[/name_u] over that too.

I think it’s fine on a boy. I might think it’s short for something, but even if it’s not, who cares?

Well nevermind, I suppose. I just ran it by my husband and his response was simply, “Barf!” Sigh. I guess I’m back to zero on boys!

I know a [name_u]Win[/name_u] (Windel) and [name_u]Win[/name_u] ([name_m]Winthrop[/name_m])

[name_u]Wynn[/name_u] [name_m]Thaddeus[/name_m] ” Wow! Gorgeous!

What about a similar name that is more commonly used for boys, like [name_u]Finn[/name_u] or [name_u]Quinn[/name_u]?

Please help me on my thread:

Bummer. Too bad he didn’t like it, I was in school with a boy called [name_u]Wynn[/name_u], fairly normal boys name I think. Does he like similar names like [name_u]Flynn[/name_u] or [name_m]Wyatt[/name_m] ?

Using a ‘y’ in spelling often denotes the feminine, and that is automatically what I think of.
