Me and Jared talked about some more names today, we know that most of them are more popular with girls now but that adds to the uniqueness in our opinion (e.g we find Addison boring on a girl but quite cool on a boy) we are obviously cool with it and if the baby is a boy we'd teach him to be cool with it as well.

My faves on your list are Morgan and Avery.

Morgan is coming back to the boys side I think. I see it in BA's being used on boys and on naming boards people are considering it more often for boys than girls really. Great name! I am happy to hear that you are considering it.

Avery is another one of the unisex names that I really like on either gender. I think it is a great first name for a boy but I prefer it in the middle name slot for a girl. Don't know why.

Addison- I actually love this for a boy (and a girl)
Avery- nms for either sex but ok as a mn
Bailey- great especially on a boy
Mackenzie- this name has me torn. one the one hand i love the nn's kenzie and mac but otherwise it's just too far gone to the girls. Shame its better for boys
Morgan- don't like this on a boy at all
Peyton- same as Morgan. All girl to me struggle with it for a boy
Preston- Gorgeous def one of my faves on your list
Reese- For a boy pr the sp Rhys or Reece as this sp looks a little feminine

Riley- my absolute fave from your list and all boy to me
Taylor- love this for either think it's one of those names that just works.

Riley Addison would be an awesome combo
Taylor Preston
Mackenzie Rhys

While many (or most) of them are becoming more popular with the girls...I think they all started as boy names and work fine on a boy

Addison- I think this could work on a boy
Avery- while I LOVE this on a girl...I think I'd love it just as much on a boy
Bailey- not really a fan of this name for a boy or girl...works fine on a boy though
Mackenzie- Just like Avery...I LOVE this on a girl but I think I'd like seeing in on a boy
Morgan- would like to see this go back to the boys
Peyton- eh...not a fan of the name.
Preston- ALL boy to me
Reese- MUCH prefer on a boy
Riley- works great on a boy
Taylor- works for a boy but prefer on a girl

I like Reese, Avery and Riley best.

Avery - one of my favorites for a boy
Peyton - I have a boy cousin named Payton. But I also have two girls Peyton's at my work. The "e" too feminine to me.
Preston - all boy.
Reese - preferred it spelled Rhys
Taylor - This is my brother's name. Even though I know about 20 girl Taylor's, this is still all boy to me.

The rest are too girly to me.

I had a friend in college named Ashley, it was really sexy on him! I agree, female names on a boy can be cool!

My favorite is Mackenzie. I love this for a boy and the nickname Mack is awesome!

My second favorite is Rhys (prefer this spelling).
