We are having a little boy and are planning on naming him Avery... Everybody in the family seems to really like it, but now all of a sudden I am having second thoughts because every time I see it, it used it is a girls name. I am not really big on unisex names so I just don't know now and we are getting really close. I really love a lot of old names (Jack, Henry...) but now even those are becoming to "trendy" for us. We are two weeks away from our due date and i am freaking out because I feel like we need to have at least one back up name in case we look at him and Avery just doesn't fit.

So I guess first of all what are your thoughts on Avery Paul Abeyta?
Second... any recommendations on old names?

Both of our grandfathers are named Alfred... I think Alfie is super cute but David thinks he would be made fun of.

I like Avery - although I have to agree I do hear it more often on girls these days (according to ssa.gov, it is in the top 60s for girls, but only top 200s for boys). But again, I have a male friend named Ashley and the name suits him perfectly and is quite handsome on him. The man makes the name not vice versa. I think Alfie is cute too and i LOVE Henry.

Others:

Simon
Arthur
August
Theodore (Theo)
Leonard (Leo)
Angus
Oliver
Patrick
Solomon
Ralph
Frederick
Walter
Douglas
Graham
Abraham
Isaiah
Isaac
Donovan

good luck!

wow thanks for all of the suggestions.

After reading that and realizing that Avery is on the top 60 for girls it really turned me off even more. I just talked to David about it and he said "well he can't have a girls name!" So we threw it out the window.

You know how they say that you should love the name you give your child... Well we didn't really LOVE it anyways. We decided on a name that we were going to use as a second middle name. We have been throwing it around for quite a while now.

****Drum roll please****
Beauchene Paul Abeyta "Beau"

it is pronounced Bo-Shane

I have the biggest smile on my face right now... that is it - I know it!!! Thanks for makeing me think!

Well, I think you could work well with names like:

Ephraim
Oliver
Ulric
Arden
Bram

Oh, nevermind this. You picked your name.

The first Avery I met was a boy I taught. Then I started hearing it on girls. But, to me it's a boys name. Though the fact that it's so popular on girls would've definitely been a turnoff for me as well.

Congrats on picking a name!

Thank you!!!

I still really like Avery on a boy, but I have a feeling it is going to get to popular for my taste. And I would hate for him to have the same name as a girl in his kindergarten class... ha ha ha, maybe it's just me though.
Beauchene will never be popular... except maybe in France

Thanks again ladies!

I've only ever heard it on a girl, but I think it would work well on a boy too!

Avery is totally a boys name to me. I associate it to Murphy Brown when she named her little boy Avery. I love the name.
