I'm afraid that my daughter will be known as Cairo. Her name will be Kyra O'___. To me the name Cairo sounds like a brown name. To me it sounds a little exotic.

My son's name, though we call him Cai for short. I obviously am really fond of this name for personal reasons as well as what it implies, for example: Exotic Egypt, it means Victorious, Cai is a variant of Kai which means 'Sea' in Hawaiian, and a character out of one of my favourite books and so on.

I adore this name! I have loved Egypt since I was a child. I have loved the name Cairo for at least 7 years. I would love to use it, I like it on a boy.

Cairo means "Mars" (the planet). Nothing else. Kai and Cai are completely unrelated.

I prefer it on a girl.

I love the name Cairo for a boy only. I think it is an under utilized place name that has a rather exotic flair with out being too eccentric.

I adore the name Cairo. Although I don't mind it on a boy, whenever I say it I think of a girl. I've tried spelling it in a different way so that it looks less place name-y or feminine, but... yeah... too trendy. Couldn't actually do it without wanting to stab out my eyeballs.

This is mostly a place name to me, but I love the sound of it.

The name Cairo is unisex. I've met two girls with this name.

Who would name their kid after the capital of a country with such a patriarchal, misogynistic culture?
