And this is one reason that I really do gravitate toward uncommon names. At least that way, it's uncommon for boys & girls so there's not much of a problem.
However, I went to HS with a boy named Ashley. He was the ONLY male Ashley and there were probaby 5 girl Ashley's. He didn't seem to get picked on or anything, though, so IDK, maybe it's not such a big deal.
My ds2's name is Rylan and I have heard that it's catching popularity with girls. It's kind of annoying as if there aren't enough girl names out there, just choose one already and leave our boys names alone! LOL, j/k. I know they have every right to name their child whatever they want be it a 'boy' or 'girl' name, but it does cause more problems for boys, I think, when they end up with a gender neutral name. I never imagined Rylan would be a girl name, it sounds very masculine to me and that is one of the reasons I chose it.
ds1 is Jace, and I really don't see that becoming gender neutral, but you never know.
I plan for potential ds3 to be either Asher, Emmett, or Brett. Brett is somewhat gender neutral as is Asher, I guess. Oh well, what am I to do, there just aren't that many choices that are safe.
