Strong Names For Girls
Some parents who chose more masculine names for their daughter say that the name is a family one, and they simply wanted to honour their relatives more than they wanted to stick with tradition. Others say that they were never really that taken with stereotypically ‘girly’ names, particularly, the association that these names indicate girls have to be overtly feminine.
Male names often have inherently strong meanings, and parents of daughters like the fact that they’re raising strong and independent kids right from the start.
Yes, it is terrible that we might judge someone so harshly based on their name, but as a society, it’s often one of the first things we know about a person, and therefore, the first part we make our assumptions on.
If you like the male naming trend, but you still want your daughter to have a feminine aspect to her moniker, you could also choose a more feminine name for her middle name. Alternatively, you could choose a stereotypically male name as a middle name, and choose either a feminine or unisex name as a first name.
