Yes. It's horrible for a girl. First or middle name. Very much a thumbs down.

What about Lacy? Lance is horrible on a girl.

Oh, JUST as bad, lol.




I mean, I get the want to honor someone, I had considered Gweneth for a while to honor my dad, Kenneth - but someone veto's it. I couldn't do a Ken name for a girl, as much as I love my dad, they feel way too masculine.

I think Lane would be a nice alternative.

Is this your first? For some reason, with my son, it took ages. IMO - it's never too early to start considering and looking at names.

Yes, this is my first. I have an angel baby but we never knew the gender so we didn't name it.

your little girl deserves a name that will fit her no matter her age and will not give her grief.



Yes, lance is a horrible name for a girl. ANY Man's name is bad for a girl.

Yes, it's not feminine at all, but try going with something close to it. Good luck:-)

I just remembered this family who lived down the street while I was growing up. This is seriously no exaggeration but I think you'll all think it's funny.



The father of the man whose family moved in was called Louis. He called his son Louie, fair enough.... His first daughter was called Anne-Louise... After he died, their mother called the new daughter Luanne.



It gets funnier.



The son, Louie, goes on to have two children: their names are Lucas and Eloise.




Since moving to Australia, Anne-Louise has started going by just Anne and Luanne is now Anastasia.
