Thank you.

Rafferty is on my list.
[name_m]Donovan[/name_m] has been a continual floater that I haven’t quite been able to place anywhere.
[name_u]Morgan[/name_u], [name_u]Montgomery[/name_u], and [name_m]Donahue[/name_m] have made an appearance on my lists over the years too but I’ve out-loved them these days.

I think it makes a cool male name! It is a bit too masculine for my taste for a little girl.

I know lots of people with this as a last name. I see it as pretty unisex but the nickname [name_f]Doe[/name_f] I see as feminine.

I know a family with this last name. I’m not a huge fan of how it sounds. I think it has a heavy, masculine vibe.

I like it, though I feel it leans more masculine. It’s really lovely!

A similar vibe maybe would be [name_m]Donnacha[/name_m]? It’s an Irish name, which is typically used for boys but I could see it being unisex.

I haven’t come across [name_f]Bennington[/name_f] before.
I like [name_m]Riordan[/name_m], [name_m]Callister[/name_m], and Shaughnessy

No, no bad experiences. They’re nice people. I just don’t like the way it sounds.

I know several [name_m]Doherty[/name_m]’s where I am from. It’s a last name in my area. I’m not sure if it sounds right to be a first name just my personal thought.

I can see your point, though a lot of people felt that way about other surname names in the past that are really popular now so I feel like that wouldn’t be too much of an odd thing in the end :thinking:
