Names can be confusing. Overall, the English language is full of quirks and unisex names are part of this system. I don’t know how it works in other languages, but the same first name (maybe spelled differently) can apply to both males and females in our country.
When I was growing up, the husband of the family next door was named Carroll. At the time, most of us had only heard of the female “ Carol” version of the name. Also, not too common are men named Gayle like the feminine name Gail.
Also, along my life’s path, I have known married couples both named Pat or Jerry (Jerri). Other couple names that could be confusing are Jean and Gene and Billy and Billie.
I know a guy whose wife’s name is Mike, and my wife works with a female named Tim. I always have to stop and think when she says Tim said something to her at work.
How many people named Shannon, Drew, Dana, Morgan, Bailey, Cameron, Jordan or Ashley have had to explain their name?
This can also be a problem when you are to call or mail someone, and all you know is his or her unisex first name.
I am sure there are many more. Right, Devin (my niece)?
