Even if it was feminine, so what? Girls are given boy's names all the time. I hate the double standard.

I had a friend tell me my sons name sounded like a girls name :roll: his name is Tristan... def. NOT a girls name. Trista is though. Anyway, my point is, gender neutral names are VERY popular right now which means your son will probably go to school with a lot of boys with "feminine" sounding names anyway so I wouldnt worry. My rule is feminine names end in vowels, masculine names end in consonants.... for the most part.

I just shared with you the usage of Teagan and Tegan. One's feminine, one's masculine.

It's not a legitimate name. And I don't like it at all.

How would you pronounce it and Teague?



I think it's a nice name for a boy. Underused, on the correct sex, legit.
