Hi Everyone,My husband and I are having a baby girl in April and are having a tough time coming up with a name. We tend to like names that are gender neutral or a bit more under the radar. Our list is below but there is nothing we absolutely love. Would love your thoughts and suggestions.Colby LeightonJamesArleySelbyCole-my husband loves this, I am worried it is too masculineRemiCodySloan
If we go with something gender neutral we would like to have a very feminine middle name. Ideally the first name would be 1 syllable as our last name is a bit of a mouthful, but this isn’t a requirement.Thank you in advance!
Of your list, James, Cole, and Cody are definitely masculine - there's not an ounce of gender-neutrality about them, certain celebrity name choices notwithstanding. To me, Colby is the cheese. It's also pretty strongly masculine-leaning. To each their own, but your daughter might end up with a hearty dislike of all things cheddar, which would be unfortunate from a culinary standpoint... I think nedibes' suggestion of Nicole nicknamed Cole is inspired. That'd give her the choice of appearing feminine or masculine, on, for example, a resume.My other suggestion is, instead of Cody, have you considered Cobie? Sounds almost the same, but much more gender-neutral.
I agree that James reads very male. I don’t like the double standard of masculine names being okay for girls while feminine names are not okay on boys.From the rest of your list, I like Colby, Remi (or Remy), and Cody. I went to school with a female Cody so I think of it as more gender-neutral, but others might read it as totally masculine.I also love Arden!other ideas:
