Apparently, there's now a new trend-within-a-trend in naming baby boys. The hook? Defining a new masculinity. Riiiight. I say, it's more of the same feminizing of boys. Reject it, people! Stick with masculine names for boys. Don't get sucked into this oh-so-cool trend. Better yet, name your child after a saint!
I say up with Anthony! Patrick! Richard! Down with Cullen(puh-leez), Jax (Jacob is just fine, thank you very much), Jett (good grief!).
Here's the article describing the new trend.
"Rejecting the top names of the past century, more and more parents are choosing gender-neutral boys' names. Baby name expert Pamela Redmond Satran, co-author of Beyond Ava & Aiden, on how the new trend reflects a different ideal of masculinity."Read the article here.
Here's a radical thought: Let's let boys be boys and girls be girls. Blurring gender lines doesn't make us sweeter or more peaceful or more human.
More modernism foolishness.
