This is probably too broad of a topic, but I think it’s a very interesting one. What are everyone’s rules for coming up with a feminism-friendly baby name?
([name_m]Even[/name_m] though it always ends up being very controversial, but hopefully people can be nice and not start critiquing eachothers’ marriages or lack thereof. Most people agree at this point on treating women as equally valuable and as important as men, but that that’s not always what our culture defaults to. Or maybe it’s never what our culture defaults to, depending on who you ask.)
I feel conflicted about all the years I thought my name was cooler because it wasn’t really a girl name…so even though I wouldn’t apply this rule to others, my daughters will get names that are unambiguously feminine.
I think my family and my mother-in-law’s family should get priority in terms of honor names, since the last name is my husband’s.
I like traditional given names more than surname names for both boys and girls, because I feel like given names are more “equal” somehow.
