Autumn as a Boy's Name?

  1. Fellow RNs and alike, Hello!

    I know I'm going off nurse's topic here. But I need your opinion....

    I really like this word or name and I have actually never met, in person, a girl/lady with that name and I'm strongly considering naming my son to be "Autumn"

    I don't consider this name unique. But rather, quite rare, in my opinion.

    Ughhh... I must really ask. Your opinion does really matter and will assist me to seal the dealio!

    Thanks... you guys!

    My 15 year old son said if you put an "e" at the end of Clement and make it Clemente, he would like it. He has a male Hispanic friend by that name.

    He says he has two male friends by the name of Ashe . . . again with the "e".

    I love Hispanic names so I'd go with Clemente.

    But definitely not Autumn. (To each their own though).

    I've known two females named Autumn, that I can remember. Both in the last 6 years.

    On facebook, I quickly see have have 6 friends who all have Fb friends with that name.

    I don't believe it is as rare as you think. Although, for a boy it might be.

    I am sorry, I truly thought this post was a joke. None of those names, INHO, will make a boy named a happy one.

    Ouch... haha...
    However, if we do end up having a girl... I'll probably stick with Autumn as her nickname.

    Thread moved to Break Room.

    I've known several girls named Autumn, but no boys. I'd have to vote no to naming a boy Autumn.

    Like Spidey, I like Ashe (with the e).

    And, instead of Arliss, I'd consider Ardis.

    Let the woman who is giving birth to your child pick the name. As she's actually giving birth.

    (The child may end up being named "Jesus", fair warning!)

    Maybe its because I'm older but I think you have more creative license with girls names vs boys. I don't particularly like Ash mostly because of the bazillion chicks already named Ashley. Not that you asked for suggestions but one of my all time favorites is Aris, short for Aristotle.
