Has Sidney gone (or is it going) the way of Ashley? Or is it more unisex? I love Sidney as a boy's name but worry that it may be cruel to name a boy that nowdays. What do you think?

I love the name Sidney for a boy. So in my opinion, you don't have to worry about it because Sidney is cool name for a boy!

I think Sidney is a great name for a boy.

Go for it!! I would never bat at a lash at a boy names Sidney. Then again, I would never bat a lash at a boy named Ashley, either.

I think Sidney Crosby helps keep it a boys name. IMO Sidney is for a boy, Sydney is for a girl.

Oh, another great boy name being used on girls. I have a feeling today it's considered unisex. I wouldn't automatically assume either boy or girl if I saw it on paper.

I think its perfectly fine for a boy. I agree that Sidney looks masculine and Sydney looks feminine.

I'm the odd one out. I think it's gone the way of Ashley & I would never use it for a boy.

My first thought was that it is now a girl name but I think if you spell it with an i and not a y, it does seem more masculine. It is not overly feminine, it wouldn't worry about it if you love the name. Our son's name is Shea (pronounced Shay), and when I call to make him an appointment or something, people always assume he is a girl. But, these are strangers so I just correct them and it doesn't matter. The people that know him do not have any feminine connotations to the name because they are used to that being his name now. I think the same would happen with a boy named Sidney. Who cares if you need to correct people once in a while? There are much crazier names being used now a days, I don't think that he would be open for teasing if thats what you are worried about.
