I know two girls name Rhyan (pronounced Ryan) and Charley (pronounced that way, forget how it is spelled exactly). A Canyon and Cash (boys), Donnelly - which I quite like but is unusual, Tatum (girl), Sadie, which is unusual around here too. Also an Audrey (girl) which took me a long time to remember because I wanted to call her AuBrey, since I had an uncle by that name. We also have a Rylee (girl) and I'm sure I am forgetting several others.

My coworker named her new baby girl Rhyan.  My sister wanted to name my nephew either Sawyer or Sutton if he was a girl.

In the newspaper birth announcements today: Unyque Blayzz. Just...why?

Does that sound like an exotic dancer name to anyone else, or am I the only one?

I am currently pregnant with number 2 and wondered if my names would get classified in the section, so just thought I would ask.

Here goes:

Male: Beau Davis Last name

Female: Bo D(undecided except for inital) Lastname

I know Bo is an uncommon female name now, but it must have been on at some point in time.  After all, Little Bo Peep was a girl.

Thoughts?

It honestly depends on the culture of the place in which your family lives. In my area, the boy's name would not be uncommon at all, but the girl's would certainly raise eyebrows and might get her teased by other kids. Obviously, you can't prevent your child from being teased ever, and if you think the name is nice and fits your daughter, then great! However, you need to be prepared for backlash or negative responses to the name if you really want to use it.

Well, Bo Derek was a woman, so I guess there's precedent, but I would be confused at meeting a female Bo, honestly.

The first name sounds nice, but seems a little odd, at least for my area. The second... If I'd ever known a Bo in school I would still be calling her 'Peep' today.
