Eh I guess that's just a difference of opinion. Over time, the usage and connotations of names change.

It is a male name. I love seeing it on a boy. Bryn Mason sounds okay.

So? How is it okay for girls to have masculine names but boys can't?

I would not use it on a boy personally. It nay be unisex but it is just too feminine people will always assume he is a girl.

I know a male Bryn. It suits him. Although I prefer it on a girl, I think it's just fine for both. Oh, and he pronounces it "Brin"

Hate it for a boy. Like Brynn for a girl. Not in love with it.

I love Mason for a boy but Bryn sounds feminine, IMO. :D

I didn't say it was "okay" or that I even liked it. Just that that's the way it is in our society FOR THE MOST PART. The usage of names changes over time depending on how parents choose to use them. AshLey's a good example- originally male, but used for decades as a feminine name, so when most people today hear Ashley, they automatically think its a female, kwim?

If it's okay for girls to have boy's names, boys should be allowed to have girl's names or "unisex" names.

Very true. Anybody can have any name they want. I was just stating my opinion; most people in the US consider Bryn a feminine name, even though it's traditionally male.
