    Dylan is a great name for a girl and boy! Keep the spelling as Dylan. No need to make it different.
    I don't think it will cause any unnecessary confusion either. I think most people are aware that Dylan can be used for a boy or a girl these days.

    I love Dylan for a girl. No need for another L. It's perfect the way it is.

    Thanks everyone! One 'l' it is then 😊
    I think people start to get used to unisex names the more we use them. As for creating a world of pain for my child, my name has been tricky at times but I love it and wouldn't trade it for anything! I think the male association with Dylan is something that will fade with time. It's funny to think that the name Ashley was actually exclusively male once upon a time but now it's associated more as being a girls name!

    If anyone else has any other name suggestions so we can add another one or two to our girls list please let me know, some we've got on the list but are not 100% sure about are:
    Zoey
    Jamie (yes another 'unisex' name 😊)
    Lana (prefer Alana but very good friends used this name already)
    Andi (here we go again, what is it about pretty boys names?)

    I love these but I can't picture calling out one in particular for my daughter. I'm a first time mum so maybe it's just because I'm not quite used to the idea of having this little person in our lives that we made haha! I'm sure the name will become part of them regardless.

    Names change a lot. One name I love, Meredith, was classically a boy's name. They just change with use. We have a daughter with a "unisex" nickname (which everybody knows her by) and classic girl's name on the birth cert.

    I really like Lana & Andi - I think Andi in particular is adorable, and unusual.
