Hmmmm. I think it's pretty out there. Not something I personally like.
I guess maybe girl. I can't imagine any child with that name. But if I had to say, if vote girl. Seems like girls can pull off slightly more "unique" names than boys. Or maybe that is just my perception.
It's interesting for me. I could like a name like this if it had sentimental meaning. Like a maiden name or the name of the town where the parents met. For some reason, that takes off-the-wall names to a different level. And, somehow, that makes it more likable or meaningful to me. So a little girl named Heritage who is named after her grandmothers maiden name...totally kinda funky and cool. But I admit that when I hear of someone named Apple or Dweezel or Heritage just because the parents thought it was nifty...I gotta say it strikes me as less cute and quirky and more just weird. But I guess that makes me a bit of a judgey person. But I can't stop my thought pattern on that one.
My mom saw the movie "Now you see me" and she fell in LOVE with the name Henley. Like the shirt. She demands we have a child and name her Henley (jokingly). While not totally off the wall for names, in this day and age, I can't get with naming my kid an "object" name without it having any meaning to us. KWIM?
I agree with with the pp...I can get on board with any name if it has a special meaning but it's hard to just like a random 'out there' name at first.
I think alot of people are that way because I always have to explain the meaning behind Romilly's name before people jump on board with it...and it's a real name!
I think it could go either way. You could use Harry or Henry or a boy and I like Hattie or a girl.
