My oldest DD let me know today that she doesn't like that she's the only girl with a "boy" name. So I'm thinking of going a different way, for her, and finding a more unisex name. It's a short list...actually, it's a one name list.

Henley Josephine.

So, I need opinions. Maybe other mn's for it. And, if possible, other unisex names that go with the kids I have now. I'm just so stuck right now.

my cousin's daughter's name is Hynlee ... its not my favorite, but i like the spelling you've used a LOT better. (I also don't like my cousin's wife so that might be part of it )

I generally like "male" names on girls - i really like Hunter, Kyle/Kile, and Breckyn for girls and those are generally boy names.

I actually tossed around Kyle for a girl with this baby. I love it. I also really like Blake or Blakely for a girl. Henley Josephine goes really well together. I love Josephine as a feminine touch to a more unisex name.

I kinda like Henley. It could grow on me. I really like it paired with Josephine.

I have a soft spot for Miller on a girl but only because I call my youngest that all the time.

What about using a unisex middle name of Ryen's choice or giving her a middle name in honor of Ryen?

The only name Ryen will suggest is Magnus! Haha. Not gonna happen. I love the name....for a boy. I asked her yesterday if she would rather just go by her middle name and she agreed, but has yet to enforce it. I guess we'll see what happens.

I really like Micah for a girl or as a unisex name. My cousin has a daughter named Mykah Jo, but I prefer the traditional spelling.

Also, I have become somewhat fond of the names Lincoln or Palmer as well. Of course, they didnt make our short list because DH prefers more traditional names and wasnt overly excited about those choices.

I have never really thought about it before, but now that it was mentioned on here, I do tend to like unisex or boy-ish names for girls.

What about Kalynn? (Kay-lynn) or any other spelling. Its still not too common, but it's not crazy out there, works for both genders and from personal experience, it is a lot of fun to have as a name I think it also would sounds great with your other children's names.

My daughter just said (and she's 5 so it may or may not mean anything) that Collin is a cute boy name for a girl.

I think your original name choice is good, and I also give a thumbs up to Blake!

I like the name you have picked out! What names does your older daughter like that are unisex?

A friend of mine just named her little girl Collins!

I like Henley.

You may also consider Cameron (my DS's name), but its not unknown as a girl's name - as in Cameron Diaz. Or a more female spelling (Camryn, Kameron, etc.).
