Top Ten Signs You Have a Girl’s Name (Like Me)

10. When you met your wife, she had to cross your name off her list of possible girls' names for her future children.

9. All your junk mail starts with "Dear Ms."

8. You were named after your grandmother.

7. Every mug and magnet bearing your name at the store is pink and/or flowery.

6. People have described your name as "pretty" or "cute."

5. 90% of the time, if you hear someone yell your name in public, you turn to see a 6 year-old girl running back to her mother.

4. You've had to end a crush early when you found out that she had your name too.

3. You would never consider naming your son after yourself for fear that he would have to endure the relentless ridicule of middle school students, like you did.

2. Your name is Taylor, Kelly, Alice, Gene, or Stacey.

1. The only two famous "guys" with your name are the middle Hanson brother and the Twilight vampire actor.

I have the opposite problem....a girl with a boy's name. In elementary school I was sick the day we had to pick our fundraising prize so at the assembly they announced my name and that I chose a bunch of Hot Wheels cars.
