I'm going to do this without looking at my previous top ten, so that I can compare. I think last time I did it in alphabetical order, so I'll do that again.Girls:Agatha

Colette
Jadzia "Jazz"
Karen
Lyra
Naomi
Noelle
Pamela "Mel"
ZeldaBoys:Amadeus
Aramis
Cyrus
Desmond
Frederick
Gideon
Luke
Rowan
Seth
Waldo
EDIT: Oh dear, last time I only did five of each. Well, I think from now on I'll do ten of each. I think maybe I did a different top ten post a while ago, maybe I should hunt that down.EDIT 2: So I did do a top ten - on January 19th. Melody and Adelaide were both bumped off that list and replaced with Naomi and Jadzia. Phoenix, Clifford, Davis, and Cecil were all bumped off my boys' list, though I think some of them might move back on.

All of your girls, practically, are boys' names.
vote up1
Yes.Yes, I guess they are. I have daughters named Mackenzie, Kyle, Logan and Hollis and those are typically boy's names too.
vote up1
Don't you like more "girly" names? I just find it a little confusing, and there are so many beautiful names out there with strong feminine character.
vote up1
"Girly" names are fine, I just prefer to use names that I love. I happen to love names for girls that are typically used for boys. I guess I don't choose names based on what society determines to be male/female.

How do you pronounce Llewelyn? I clicked on it and read the comments and it doesn't say. Thanks.
vote up1
In English it's pronounced loo-el-in. That's how I pronounce it. The Welsh LL sound is quite a chore to do all the time, and since I don't live in Wales I don't think it matters to just pronounce it like an L.
