Esmond for a girl?

Not planning on having a baby any time soon, just wondering what everyone thought. It reminds me of [name]Rosamund[/name], but I’m not sure if I like it (though I really like the nickname Esm”)

For me, this is too close to [name]Desmond[/name] and [name]Edmond[/name] to be viable for a girl, although [name]Esme[/name] on its own is adorable, in my opinion. I think [name]Rosamund[/name] (which I love) is made less masculine by the obvious flower connection.

It just sounds masculine to me. It sounds like a mash-up of [name]Desmond[/name], [name]Osmond[/name], and [name]Edmund[/name].

well,I for one love it. i love unique names and this–to me at least–is a gorgeous name. i might have to steal it…lol

No, far too boyish. Why not just use [name]Esme[/name]?

No! [name]Esmond[/name] is a wonderful, underused boy’s name! What’s wrong with [name]Esme[/name] or [name]Esmeralda[/name]?
