I named my son Dustin Bailey in 2011. My husband & I couldn't agree until I came up with this particular name. I absolutely love it but he(my son) gets very upset (he's 11 yrs old now) when I call him by his middle name. he'says he gets teased in school, also because he has 3 girls in his class with the'same name & 2 were spelled the'same as his. Ive tried telling him his whole life that I found it in a book of baby boy names back in 2011 & as far as I knew, it was a boy name, as he got older I realized it was a unisex name. Also gave him examples of other names that could be boy or girl. He now feels better that I ran across this website to show him othe's have the'same thing in common & that he is n't alone. Thank you to those who have posted their opinion & experience with the name "Bailey" xxx PS he'says he'still likes the middle name Blaze or Flame lol

My son was born 9/19/96 and I named him Bailey Tate. I got the name from Party of Five as well. I had never heard the name for a girl until he was 5 or 6. I was upset to see so many girls named it because you never want to give kids ammo to tease. he's now 16 and says that nobody has ever made fun of him for it yet :) I love the name for a boy. I still think It's a terrible girl name.

My daughter is twelve. Her name is Bailey Elizabeth. Her name was originally going to be Katelynn Elizabeth. But a few weeks before I had her I was purchasing a collector's Boyd's Bear for my mom and one of the bear's name was Bailey. I fell in love with it and changed her name. Unknown to me, my mother-in-law had purchased a blanket with Katelynn Elizabeth on it and was going to go back after she was born and have her birthdate added and give it to me later. She had to take it back, take it out and change it to Bailey - OOPS!!
