that does not always work since: Claude and Dominique may be boys name: but you may have also Marie or Anne (yes these may be boys' name!)
now ending with an "e" could be also a specific boy's name : Fulgence , Côme, Pacôme, etc.

I was about to say that I beat you to it. But when I looked back in this thread, I realized I didn't post the name Jackie (even though I recently came here specifically to do just that).

We have our very own guy named Jackie right here on the forums.

Hmmm,

Do abbreviations count? How about Van? There was Van Johnson, the actor, and I know a couple of ladies who go by Van (short for Vanessa...might have the spellig wrong but you know what I mean). That should work.

Bill Cosby:

Quote:
It was because of my father that from the ages of seven to fifteen, I thought that my name was Jesus Christ and my brother, Russell, thought that his name was Dammit. "Dammit, will you stop all that noise?" And, "Jesus Christ, sit down!" One day, I'm out playing in the rain, and my father yelled, "Dammit will you get back in here!" I said, "Dad, I'm Jesus Christ!"
In this context, Dammit and Jesus Christ would work for boys or girls.

I often wondered what they used for those operations. I wonder why red tape?

By the way uni57,

Opps...didn't mean to step in the way. It's like Grandmother used to always say, "great minds think alike".

57.

Somehow, I thought you suggested (uni)57, Tincher Teach. Then I re-read and realized I was mistaken... so I am being bold and suggesting it myself!

BTW, where is uni57 ?? !!!!!

uni57! You must be really busy. We haven't seen one of your very interesting long notes in quite awhile. You surely will have some catching up to do next time you have time to sit down and start writing.

Thanks for the smiles Tincher Teach!

LOL, thanks so much for the kind words! I just started a new job and, well, I just don't have much free time at the moment to spend here. I've gotten so far behind in your "new rider" thread that I haven't even looked at it. I need to reserve some quality time for that one. I'm glad it's still going. Lately, I just pop into the threads that are a quick read, like this one and similar. I spend about five minutes here per day. I'll be "back" soon...

Thanks again!


P.S. - Hi, Steve (UniBrier)! Nice to see you are still around!

My first-born's going to be called Velocity Sideways Johnson.

I don't tend to mention it on first dates.

Tracy and Stacy are becoming common male names. I knew a girl named Michael. Micah is used for both sexes. I also knew a lady who's name was Christopher.....she went by Chris. Aaron(Erin) is used by both sexes. Robin is a common male name in the UK, but used mostly as a female name in the US(unless you are a sidekick to Batman). Lacy was used as a male name in the US in the early 19th century. Tony(Toni) is common for both sexes, though Tony for a male is usually short for Anthony.

There was a Michael in The Bangles wasn't there? That's the only female Michael I'd heard of.

The female form is short for Antonia.
