Leigh looks very feminine not so unisex

Lee seems a bit more unisex but I'd spell it like this for a male and Leigh for a girl.

I agree that Leigh looks more feminine. I have quite a few female friends with the MN of Lee.

it's ok.. I know both guys and girls named Leigh (with various spellings)

My middle name is Lee because it's a family name. It's also my grandfather's name. I've seen it on both men and women. I've only ever heard of Leigh on men (except in a horrible book I read once where the character's name was Heaven Leigh :rolleyes: ).

And what exactly is your point? It was JMO that Leigh is feminine and Lee could go either way but seemed a bit more of a masculine way to spell it! I have never in my life come acrossed (personally speaking) a man with the spelling Leigh.

I agree that Leigh is definitely for a girl, I myself have never seen it used for a man before either. However there are many versions of Lee out there. Lee is definitely a unisex way of spelling it. However my middle name is spelled Lea its the french spelling. It is still pronounced Lee.

I see Leigh on a girl (Lee as a MN for either sex, I know both).. I like it, only for middle.

To me Lee is a surname or the masculine spelling. Leigh is all girl to me.

Personally, I hate 'Leigh'. It bothers me. I dislike it A LOT when people spell Ashley like "Ashleigh". Lee, I dont mind. Or Leah, or Lea. Leigh for some reason just irks me instantly.

I personally just don't liket he whole Lee or Leigh as a name. I know both females and males with each, and i don't think one is more feminine or masculine than the other. I just think (for the most part... not all cases) its a cop-out middle name. I'm not a fan of one syllables.

LadyGamer November 3rd, 2008 11:54 AM

double post.

Cordelia November 3rd, 2008 09:06 PM

I don't like it on a boy at all, but I like the Leah (or Leigha is even better) version on a girl! :)
