That Malakai/Malachi is a girls name.
According to my MIL that is.
I translate that into - 3 out of 5 ladies have never read their Bible.
GRR... She needs to let it go.
Love Sugar Sweet Minxy:I have never, ever heard the name Malachi used as a girl's name.
She's still harping on this?
Lol I'm pretty sure we were talking about Malakai just a few weeks ago in CHURCH!
I like it!
umm, that name belongs on someone who has a penis.
That's all I'm saying...?
MrsPreK: Love Sugar Sweet Minxy:I have never, ever heard the name Malachi used as a girl's name. Me either....She's still harping on this?
Oh yes... she sure is. Thinks a good name is Kyle (not our style at all)... ONLY because she considered naming DH that...
Wow, never heard it as a girls name....I'd tell her to get over it!
fwiw, I really like the name....just cant get MH behind it!
I asked my H, because he is pretty clueless on most things and would be an unbiased sounding board. He said, "Um... it's a boy name. It's in the Bible. Don't you know who Malachi is???" and gave me a weird look for even asking.
So, there you go. It's a boy name.
efortune:Dont feel bad, my mom keeps giving me examples of Tristen being used as a boy's name. And giving me her co-workers opinions on our name choice.
I have a boy cousin named Tristin, but it's certainly not everyone's style. Their other children are named Devon, Austin, and Mackenzie.
Tristen is a fairly unisex name though (nothing wrong with that, we are using one as well)... Malachi is very much a boy's name!
That is crazy!!!
Although I must say, if this girl was a boy we were going to use Micah James and the first friend that I told said, "Micah is a girl's name".
This friend hadn't read the bible in her entire life or been to church since her first communion so I let it go, but she proceeded to tell all of our other GF's that I was going to name my next DS a girl's name.

melissa1321:ive only ever heard of Malakai being used as a boys name, personally i like it. i guess if your MIL keeps harping about it you could compromise with the middle name. fwiw isay its your baby, name him what you want. once hes here no one will care what hes named they'll be to busy wanting to hold him and what-not. good luck!
Are you kidding me? She can harp on us until the cows come home, we will not budge. She had her chance to name her kids, no way in hell does she have any say in naming mine.
She is so wacked out. I have NEVER heard it for a girl. Get the bible out.....
