Please help us pick!!

We don’t know if we’re having a girl or a boy, but we will find out in just a few weeks! If it is a girl, my hubby and I both love unisex names and have narrowed it down to two…

[name]Carlisle[/name]/[name]Carlyle[/name] (can’t decide which is better spelling…)

He favors [name]Greer[/name] and I like [name]Carlisle[/name] better, but I would be happy with either. Our son’s name is [name]Charlie[/name], which is kind of close to [name]Carlisle[/name], so maybe [name]Greer[/name] is better?

I don’t know… help!!

Other names we’ve liked along the way…

[name]Carl[/name] is a form of [name]Charles[/name] so [name]Carlisle[/name] and [name]Charlie[/name] are practically the same name for me. [name]Carlisle[/name]/[name]Carlyle[/name] also has TWO male names within it ([name]Carl[/name] and [name]Lyle[/name]) so personally I think [name]Greer[/name] is the better choice of the two (the spelling [name]Grier[/name] is another option). [name]Do[/name] you like [name]Blythe[/name], Rowan, Leighton, Brynn, Hadley, Hollis, Eden, Morgan or Sutton?

[name]Sidney[/name] - this is the usual male spelling so I would choose [name]Sydney[/name] to avoid gender confusion.

[name]Collins[/name] - very similar to the male name of [name]Colin[/name]. A film character in “Blind Side” and a little too surnamey for my taste.

[name]Reed[/name] - A reed is a large grass so it’s a nature name which technically is unisex. Since females have a lot of body image issues, if your daughter is on the heavy side, this name could cause some problems (skinny = reed-like).

[name]Sloane[/name] - this is a trendy unisex name related to the [name]Sloane[/name] Square area in [name]London[/name] and the [name]Sloane[/name] Rangers (Lady [name]Diana[/name] and other upper class ladies). It’s kind of pretentious.

Thanks for the input… [name]Blythe[/name] is my absolute favorite name, but my husband doesn’t like it at all, but can’t articulate why.

I hear what you’re saying about [name]Carlisle[/name] and [name]Charlie[/name] being so similar… I just really like the name!

I’d love some more ideas… anyone?

I don’t see an issue with [name]Carlysle[/name] and [name]Charlie[/name] together. [name]Greer[/name] is one of my guilty pleasure names(my Dh would never go for it). [name]Love[/name] it

[name]Sydney[/name]- its on my short list, love it

[name]Collins[/name]- just not a fan, seems all boy to me

[name]Reed[/name]- is on my boy list, just can’t visualize it on a girl

[name]Sloane[/name]- is also on my boy list, but i think its cute on a girl as well.

Some of the unisex names I’ve seen(and liked):
[name]Abilene[/name](which I see as all girl)

I love [name]Greer[/name]! I personally prefer the [name]Grier[/name] spelling, but [name]Greer[/name] is very cool, regardless. I agree that [name]Carlisle[/name] and [name]Charlie[/name] are too close. From your list, the only other one I like is [name]Sloane[/name]. Hmm, maybe [name]Rowan[/name], [name]Avery[/name], [name]Flannery[/name], or [name]Jet[/name]? I love the idea of [name]Juliet[/name] nn [name]Jet[/name] on a girl, I’m not sure if just [name]Jet[/name] would work very well…

Good luck!
