Speaking of gender names (and I may have posted about this before) - has anyone ever known a male Bambi? In the book and movie, it is established that little Bambi is the PRINCE of the forest. Last time I heard, princes were male - but I have known a couple of Bambis (Bambies?) and they have always been female.
I have known male and female Pats, Terrys, Marion/Marians, Lynn/Linns,Sidneys, Ashleys, Kellys, Danas - well, quite a list of names that can go with either gender. I do have to admit that I prefer names that are more gender specific, if only to keep kids from being embarrassed. I do know that the male Linn who was a classmate was listed among the girls names and he was quite bothered about it (this was elementary school, though).
