Kelly or Thomas for a boy?

Which do you like better and why?

I love both but I’ll say [name_u]Kelly[/name_u] because it’s more unique for a boy!

I prefer [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] :slight_smile: It’s just… more my style. And I prefer its sound.

Thomas is one of my absolute all time favourites. I know [name_u]Kelly[/name_u] is unisex but I’ve only ever known female [name_u]Kelly[/name_u]’s.

Thomas! so soft and sweet. I do really like more feminine names on boys, but [name_u]Kelly[/name_u] feels a bit too dated to me.

Kelly because it’s more unique. [name_f]My[/name_f] mother used to date a man named [name_u]Kelly[/name_u]


Oh, no, this is so hard! I think I will have to go with [name_u]Kelly[/name_u], just because I adore that for a boy.

Thomas! Timeless, sophisticated and very handsome.

I prefer [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] as it has a very mature edge.

Since I’m always a fan of demolishing gender norms and expectations, I love [name_u]Kelly[/name_u] for a boy.

I would normally say [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] because it’s a classic and you can’t go wrong with that. BUT I really like [name_u]Kelly[/name_u] for a boy! It’s so unexpected, but it’s a surname and an old name, too, so it doesn’t feel odd or invented.

I think you should go with whicever you’re feeling more: time-tested classic or fresh, new pick.

Kelly. I would love to see it used more for boys again :blush:

Thomas, such a handsome classic!

I love [name_m]Thomas[/name_m]! It’s such a lovely, handsome classic. [name_m]Even[/name_m] though it’s currently #47 in the US, I feel like I don’t know very many at all. I don’t particular like [name_u]Kelly[/name_u] on either a boy or a girl.

I like the sound of [name_m]Thomas[/name_m], but I’m not opposed to [name_u]Kelly[/name_u] on a boy!

Thomas seems overdone to me and right now it’s sort of lost it’s spark. [name_u]Kelly[/name_u] for a boy seems fresh :wink:

I prefer the versatile [name_m]Thomas[/name_m]
