Ormond Posted February 27, 2021 Author Share Posted February 27, 2021 11 hours ago, Lady Winter Rose said: Ormond, do you think parents are more likely to choose traditionally male name on girl or is it just nameberry site's things? I am not quite sure what you are asking, but it is certainly true that people in English speaking countries are much more likely to give a traditionally "male" name to a daughter than they are to give a traditionally "female" name to a son. This is just sexism at work -- giving a daughter a "male" name elevates her to a higher status, while giving a "female" name to a boy would "contaminate" him, in terms of sexist beliefs.
