Would you give your kid a name that is the opposite of their gender?

don't see why people can't settle on gender neutral names such as alex or sam

My old friend changed her name from Katja to Rosa Bella and I wouldn't have done it but it's her choice of course.
You never know what is a fit name for a child when they're just born. So I wouldn't go with any extremities in case the name doesn't really fit. We have really interesting names in the Finnish language that would create some controversies when the child goes to school, for instance an old name "Yrjö" that in spoken language means puke. So yeah, don't name your child puke.

First I not changing my stance on the matter. 2 Facepalm. If you think that was me being high-strung by all means believe it. But I only was drawing attention to that. Yes it make them thick skinned. Because assholes from other schools made fun of them. But not once did they let that get to them. Please try wearing something that is embarrassing to you and try to not let people get to you. So you are right, that doesn't make anyone appear thick skinned. Because they are thick skinned.

Probably not, I don't want to cause them unnecessary problems. My name has a masculine and feminine version and unpleasant individuals have, in the past, tried to use the wrong one to try an antagonize me.



That make no sense. If you really need to protect your child because of a name. The problem is not the name but the people who are being the danger.


While correct, it does nothing to obviate the problem.


God, you are so vague. I know that. I have been made fun of because of my name. I just ignore them.

I don't think that it really matters, as long as the name has a meaning behind it. I mean, I personally like gender neutral names, but I wouldn't name my son Susan or my daughter Bradley. But I feel like guy names are more acceptable for girls lately. Like I met a girl named Paxton, Kyle, and there's Blake from RWBY

Why bother wearing something embarrassing to yourself- That doesn't even make sense

Here, you do it- Go out in public in underwear. It's a free society. The question would be why

No, and I already did some more embarrassing stuff. Haha. You don't get to decide always what you wear. Other times people wear stuff that they like but other people will make fun of you for that. That make some people stop wearing what they want while others don't give a fuck. For example, I have long hair even thou I am a man. I have a lot of guys and girls made fun of me because of my long hair. But I don't care. So I just ignore them.

Sure but that's OT because we're talking about the parents' choices, not the kids'

I am not going to repeat myself again. Like I say you can be proud of your name or be ashame of it. You can make your name mean something good to you or let it be used against you. I am talking from experience here. My first name is a french normal name but some assholes found a way to make fun of my name. I just ignore them. I am not saying be stupid and name your kid vagina but neither let others people mocking made the decision for you.
