    Another name poll for Pugified

    OK - we have dropped Madison from our list - I still love it, but for various reasons, its no longer on the list. We have however added a new name. Dylan. I know its a boys name but I really like it for a girl too. May spell it with 2 L's - not sure yet.

    So - feel free to vote again and THANK YOU - your input means a lot!!

    And please tell me if you think Dylan is too much of a boy's name.

    Honestly, I think that "Dylan" is too boyish. However, I am a traditional name type of gal. I, also, don't care for "different" spellings because I wouldn't want to go thru life having to spell my name for everyone. I have enough problems with people spelling my name "Rachael".

    I voted for Dylan, I think it's a name with character and personality and strength. Just am drawn to it, especially for a girl.
    But then, I am a weirdo non-traditionalist, so mine might not be the more norm-opinion, just take that into account too as you decide.

    The world might have an easier time with Alexandra or Ava, maybe.
    But, I like Dylan the best.

    I really like Ava for a girl. It is just so beautiful!! I really like Dylan, but for a boy only.
    Good luck deciding. Names are so hard.

    I think Dylan is such a great name! LOVE IT FOR A GIRL! Don't like it at all for a boy. Ava is pretty but reminds of an old person.

    I love Ava, but seems like everyone is using that name lately....so depends on how "common" of name you want for your baby.
    I like dylan for a girl, its different and very cute sounding, and totally un-common, which isnt a bad thing, i loved being the only "Livi" in HS, even though people always called me levi or spelled it funny....i felt more special with a uncommon name...

    Good luck!

    I LOVE Dylan. Our daughter hated it because it was a boy's name (her name is Ryan ). However, she LOVED Wyatt So, Wyatt it is. Obviously I'm a fan of little boy names for girls (with frou-frou middle names, in case they hate their names when they grow up). Dylan Margaret is adorable!

    I think Ava is beautiful and in my opinion works well for a child and transitions to a very adult name later on. I also like Dylan, in fact better for a girl than a boy I think. Why not have both names ready and you'll know which is more fitting when you see her for the first time.

    We named our triplet boys before they were born since they definitely had personalities while in my tummy. We gave them the name that we felt went with their personalities at the time and after they were born new that we had it exactly right and still feel that way to this day. We originally wanted a girl (at least 1) and had the name Rowan Alasaundra picked out as I've always loved the name Rowan, but it wasn't to be. But I would not trade my boys for anything.

    I am so happy to see everything going well for you. I remember you started at the same time I did.

    I like Ava best of that list. It is sweet and feminine.

    I do NOT like Dylan (for a girl OR a boy, but especially for a girl). I do have a niece with that name, but hers is spelled Dillen, which is slightly cuter.

    I am not a fan of gender neutral names though. Why put her in a situation where she has to see "Mr. Dylan ..." her whole life?

    I voted for Alexandra. I'm also one of those who feel that Dylan is just too associated with boys...not even a unisex name. However, how about this name that's similar...Devan? I LOVED this name and would have used it for our DD just born if my hubby would have agreed.

    Best of luck on your decision! Boy, do I know it's hard!!
