“Our nontraditional boys’ names reflect our own desire to raise sons who will be as comfortable pushing dolls in strollers as pushing trucks.”

If we had one, his name would have been James after my grandfather and her father.

But I’ve always thought “Lance” was a cool name for a boy...

Rejecting the top names of the past century, more and more parents are choosing gender-neutral boys' names. SNIP

Ouch! Don't put "SNIP" in right after mentioning "gender-neutral". It makes the boys want to crawl up into my abdomen to hide. :-)

Any solid Christian name works for me.

Heck, even “Christian”. That would sure piss off a lot of secular schoolteachers, to have to say the word “Christian” all day.

30 years ago when I named my son Jordan it was a boys name. NOW it’s been co-opted as a girls name.

More suburban faggotization of the American male. I am quite happy with the given name Eric, thank you very damned much........and I'll pound it into your soft ass if you don't like it.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

“I wanted to imbue my sons with feminist values.."

And their father has what to say about that exactly?

The cause of this trend is clear. More women are bearing children without benefit of a formal husband. There is no check on the self-indulgences that take place with those who use idiotic “alternate spellings” for their daughters so she can be “one of a kind” (with a name nobody can spell).

Normally, it is the husbands who will say no son of mine is gonna be called “Jayden.” Regarding the oddball Palin naming conventions, that has much (I believe) to do with Native culture being broader in their selection of names from time immemorial, so they get a waiver.
