I think this is a question many of us have been wondering about lately. Who really is easier to name–boys or girls?
[name]Just[/name] to get this topic started:
On the one hand, there are obviously SO many more options for girls’ names. But does that make it easier --because you have more to choose from-- or harder --because there are so many names to take into consideration and choose between?
And on the other hand (the boys’ hand!) is the exact opposite of the girls’ argument. There seem to be so few choices for boys–either that or parents feel confined to the same old choices. (Maybe because of the rise of unisex names? It seems that once a name becomes unisex people just don’t think of it as a “real” boys’ name anymore–so boys’ parents think they’re only safe with the classics? Or do parents just feel more adventurous with girls for no reason at all? Sorry–just thinking out loud here!) So, if you go with the argument that less choices makes for less confusion, then boys are easier. But if you agree that having more choices makes for a better palette…
Anyway, feel free to post your own thoughts on this (confusing!) subject!
