While I agree that this post doesn't belong on the fact board, I also agree with the original poster about the change of names in modern times. I personally have no issue with 'unisex' names as a concept; names come from somewhere and hey, various last names originated from first names so why not the other way around? I think certain names originally intended for boys sound fine on girls. As long as we don't go overboard with Little Miss Thomas and her best friend, Little Miss Samuel. EEK!. I honestly think it depends on the name but I do understand objections to Mackenzie as a female name (although I like it myself). Really, many people don't want certain names to be overtaken by the girls. I get that; I adore Ashley and Kelly for boys but I'd shy away from them, thanks to girls being given those names.

I hope that rant made sense...
