Hi, Well, my daughters name in itself is not unusual, but for a girl I think it is.Her name is Dylan, Dylan Kate. We are expecting another baby and while I'm not particularly a fan of unusual sounding or spelt names I think if we chose something along the lines of Lisa or Mark the Dylan's name will be the odd one out. To make things even more difficult I like the idea of having a "y" in the name.I am thinking Peyton (for a girl) and Lakyn (for a boy)I would love anyone's honest (I'm not easily offended) opinions and/or suggestions. Another name I like is Chase (for a boy) but our surname has a "s" sound at the end - think Curtis so it may be too "S" ey.Thanks in advance, looking forward to your replys x

No offense intended but if I had to guess I would have thought Peyton sounded slightly manlier than Lakyn. Due to Peyton Manning, probably. Peyton works on a girl even more often, but Lakyn is girlier, IMO than either it or Dylan.

Lysander
Lyle

Super, super nerdy and weird but I've been liking Gwyneira recently despite not being Welsh at all myself. Welsh is awesome for y's.

I think Dylan and Peyton sound great together. It's not to girlie iykwim?!

I'm not sure of a boys name. Lakyn is nms but doesn't sound bad. Maybe a unisex name to keep in theme but not too feminine.... I love unisex names!

Eta: what about something like Flynn?

I like Peyton. Lakyn is not my style - but I don't think it's bad.

I like Ryder for a boy and Avery for a girl as other PPers have suggested!

If you like names containing a Y and like Chase - I have seen it spelt Chayse.

I like Dylan and Peyton as sisters!

Others for a girl:

Tamsyn
Gryffin
Carlyn
Bryony
Bethany

Not keen on Lakyn or Chase, I'll try to come back with other boy options...

I think Peyton works well, perfect match.

For a boy, Lakyn is NMS. What about

Greyson
Reygan
Clayton
Ryan
Tyson

How about Darcy or Jordan for a girl? I liked the suggestion Avery as well for either sex.

Boys - hmm can't think of any at the moment will come back to you...

I think naming your daughter a name where she will be assumed to be a he until she corrects the misunderstanding far outweighs being "odd" in relation to her siblings names.

I have no ideas, sorry. we have completely opposite naming styles. Good luck in your search original.gif

I second the PP who said Rowan for a girl. Love it.

#18 la di dah

Cassidy could work well with Dylan, for a girl? Or Carys.

Casey, Cillian, Corbin, or Cormac for a boy.

Why do this?

Posted 16 November 2012 - 06:21 AM

I agree with PP. Just because you like a y in a name, please don't just insert it in at random. Chayse looks horrible!
If the OP REALLY wants a y in the name, and I don't really understand that naming protocol, just like I don't understand the Kardashians laughing2.gif, choose a name that is spelt with a y traditionally. Like Dylan, which is a lovely name.
I also don't think there is a problem with having a traditional name, like Mark or Lisa, with a Dylan for a girl. My name is quite unique, and my sister had a top 10 70's girls name. No one ever said anything. Ever. If they had the answer would have been "my parents just chose names they liked". In fact one parent named me, the other named my sister.

Dylan and Chase (and I like Chase for a boy or girl) is my favourite of any of the combinations mentioned.

I'll also add Bryn - which can be a boy or girl.

Oh I like Bryn (I met Bryn Terfel once...swoon)

How about Quinn? For boy or girl?

#22 Bel Rowley

I know sisters Dylan and Ivy. While Ivy is more obviously feminine, I still think they go nicely together.

Dylan and Finley?

#24 FiveAus

My daughters name is Bryden. I love the name, I've never met another girl named Bryden although I've heard of a few boys with the name.

I thought of another name that might work-Romilly. It's an English surname.
