DH and I are having an EXTREMELY hard time coming up with and agreeing on a name for our baby boy due 2/13/08. The only name we can come close to agreeing on is Rio. My question is, does this sound like a masculine name to you, or a unisex name? I know there was a Duran Duran song years ago that said "her name is Rio"... and when I told my mom I liked this name for a boy she said she liked it better for a girl. I do not like Unisex names. Tell me if it sounds like a boys name to you. Also I told DH we could use his first name for a middle name: Gavin. Does Rio Gavin sound ok together? We have a 2 syllable last name.

Rio is all boy to me, there are very very few girls names that end in 'o' because that is a male ending in most languages (Mario, Julio, Marco, Orlando) so I think most people would assume boy as well. I like it as a sib to Skya!! I think it works with Gavin just fine.

It definitely sounds masculine to me.
There's a football player here in England with this name, and he's quite good looking too so maybe im a little biased but i love the name lol.

The name is NMS, but it's definitely masculine and goes great with Skya. Rio means river in Spanish, so you have all names inspired by nature.
