    Default Is this name too boyish for a girl?

    I love this name and think it would be cute on a girl but am worried it'd be too boyish. The name is "Chase". I've never heard it on a girl before. Would love to hear opinions.

    I knew a girl named Chase at Uni. I quite like it as a girls name.

    It does make me think of a boy, but whether or not to use it depends on whether that bothers you.

    I think that by calling a girl a name that boys are usually called (or vice versa) then you do have to deal with people expecting it to be the traditional gender, but if you love the name and don't mind that then go for it.

    Perhaps give her a traditionally female name as a middle name, so that if it bothers her later in life then she can use that? But she may love it too, and not mind correcting people.

    I remember reading somewhere that women with traditionally male names were often more high achieving career wise. Can't remember where now, but that could always be a bonus!

    I love unisex names for girls. I think it's cute, but the most important thing is that you like it, so you should go for it!

    I know a girl named Chase but I think they spell it Chaise. I like it and don't see it as specifically boy or girl.

    I like Chase for a girl, it's nice. I don't like it spelt Chaise though because that is what my lounge is.
