What is tthe problem with names that are gender specific?
What useful purpose do 'new age, unisex names' serve?
Don't know Mick......the schools then have to figure it out before the kids arrive on their first day......Hmmmmm....they wonder.......is it a boy or a girl! And the poor kids that have the longest names to spell is even harder!
Haven't we always had unisex names, Marion, Shelly, Shawn, Gail/Gale, Aaron/Erin? The unisex names don't bother me as much as the really odd names; Apple, Colorado (saw that one this weekend), Stone, Brick and any other word that people see and just tag on to a human being. (too many soap opera and romance novel readers)
I miss the old days of Michael, Thomas, Susan. I'm old.
Personally, unisex names seem like political correctness gone too far. Why don't we have unisex toilets as well! I agree with duffsmom, I appreciate old fashioned gender specific names to the silly names you see today.
the only thing that really bugs me is when people give kids names that are intentionally misspelled. it sets a kid up for a lot of unnecessary aggravation. I don't mean names that have different spellings due to different cultures/origins (like Michelle/Michele or Katherine/Catherine), I mean intentional misspellings like Shannen, Danial, etc. I even encountered Shy-Ann (what should have been Cheyenne).
