Hey ladies! I was inspired by another thread on here in the boy’s section. There was a woman asking about naming her son [name]Ashley[/name] recently. I loveeeee this idea. It would be a very dated name for a little girl to have, but it seems refreshing for a little boy!
It made me start thinking of names that are mostly female now, but were once male names. There are so many great names like that out there that have been taken over by women, and now seem VERY dated. However, if they were used on boys, they would be soooo refreshing and cool imo. Here are a few names that I would say are outdated for women, but are ready to make a comeback for the guys. I thought it would be fun if we all added names to the list. I will start with a few below, and add more later. Oh, I’m not pregnant either. I just thought it would be fun to talk about those kind of names.
Once again, these are names that would be outdated for baby girls, but are refreshing enough for baby boys. [name]Feel[/name] free to list your own ideas
