Is it too gender neutral to be matched with an already gender-neutral first name? It would be the middle name, but I'm hoping for a feminine middle name and this was thrown in the mix because of the family history to DH's side. I like it, but always thought it not feminine enough to really emphasize that baby would be a girl if they had to look at the middle name for hints (like, on a roll call or resume or transcript or whatever).

When you see Laine, is it definitely girl, maybe girl, or 50/50 girl or boy?

I personally think girl when I see the 'i' or I think poor boy, why couldn't they have spelt it Lane.
So I'm going to go with, maybe girl.

i personally think girl. i'd assume it was from Elaine or something, especially when you say it's a family name.

what's the first name? i think that has a lot to do with it, though.

I think of Laine as a boy name, but could work for a girl. If you're worried about it sounding too neutral, what about having her mn be Elaine, Elaina or Lainey?

Elaina is another option, but Laine just sounds better with the flow of the whole name. We're trying to do either a 1 syllable or 3 syllable (or more) mn because 1st name and last name would be 2 syllables each. We've got time to try it out

I like Laine but I am 50/50 on boy girl. I like Elaina a lot as well!! If I read it on paper though I dont think Laine would make me automatically think girl.

Thanks, ladies... I searched the name on the SS list and it's fairly high (I thought in the 200's but I can't remember now) on the boy list and not even presented on the girl's list, and that's the Laine spelling. I think we'll toy with Elaina, Laina, Lina options and see what sounds better. We could also go Helaina or Helina, since it's a diminutive of Helen and in honor of both his grandmother and mom... I wish I loved one right away but they don't just flow as well as maybe a simple name like Faith, which I adore but Faith has not family connection, so I dropped it...
