Next Caller


I looked Nashville up and saw that [name]Avery[/name] is being played by [name]Jonathan[/name] [name]Jackson[/name]. It pleases me to see that it’s a male [name]Avery[/name] and not a female one. :slight_smile:

I think the writers lurked around here before choosing names :wink:

I also think it’s great that [name]Avery[/name] is a boy! Maybe it can come back up for boys now?

Are any of the masculine names actually females on the shows? I feel like that’s where the trend starts sometimes, like [name]Elliot[/name] on Scrubs, [name]Addison[/name] on [name]Grey[/name]'s Anatomy (though I think this was popular before the show too) and even [name]Dylan[/name] on Desperate Housewives ([name]Katherine[/name]'s daughter). [name]Just[/name] wondering if there are any bad boy names on girls we need to watch out for :slight_smile:

I don’t like [name]Dylan[/name] for a girl, and I don’t really like it for a boy.

I haven’t found any masculine names on girls this fall season but I may be wrong.

This makes me so happy! I hate the name [name]Avery[/name] on a girl, it’s so masculine and handsome.

There’s actually an [name]Avery[/name] in [name]Grey[/name]'s Anatomy, well it’s a surname of a character but everyone refers to him as [name]Avery[/name].

Hooray! I am SO happy to see that [name]Avery[/name] is a male character! I’m planning to name my baby boy [name]Avery[/name] and really don’t want it to be seen as a girls-only name.


Apparently the main character of the show “Revolution” from NBC is [name]Charlie[/name], who happens to be a girl!
