Name Game Tuesday.....
With the passing of Hollywood Icon Shirley Temple yesterday, it reminded me of
one of the many things that she became famous for. First on the list was her very
Prior to her rise to stardom as a four year old legend in the 1930's, Shirley was a
man's name! That got me thinking about other names that have crossed-over to the
opposite gender. In the 50's our family had a friend that we called Bev, his real name
was Beverly. Vivian was also a man's in the 19th century. Other former men's names
that have become predominately female are Carol, Taylor, and Hilary as well.
Of course there are the dual names like Leslie, Kim, Lee, Bobbi, Sammi etc.
Does anyone out there know of any others?
