cameron is a boys name to me which i dont like
camryn is even worse and doesnt make the name more feminine
Spring Break 2014
WashingtonQueen:Cameron is a boy's name no matter how you misspell it.
Cameron is a boy's name.
Camryn is a ridiculous attempt to make Cameron a girl's name.
If you want to name your daughter Cameron, which I don't endorse but that is neither here nor there, then own that it's a boy's name and spell it correctly.
EDIT: And to everyone saying "Cameron Diaz" like she's the be all and end all of anything, I have to ask: Is Maxwell now a feminine name because Jessica Simpson was idiot enough to put it on a girl? ::eye roll::
I want you. I know I'm a mess, but I want you. I want to see you every morning. I want to make you a snack every night. And, eventually I want to have your little babies and I want to watch you die.
I love you. Maybe I'm an idiot for it, but I always have. Everything good that I try and do I do it because of you. I try and get away but I just keep coming back. And that's because I love you.

It's not that Cameron Diaz is the end all be all of anything-it's just an example of a female Cameron that most people have heard of. I don't think anyone is claiming it's not a boy name-it's just what people are exposed to that alters their opinion of a name.
Krisands:Don't mind Cameron but detest Camryn. A Y does NOT make a name more feminine.
This. Camryn and Cameron sound exactly the same. No one will know it's a youneek spelling until it's written down.
RiverSong82:I think Cameron is fine; adding a y to make it more feminine is not great though. I don't think adding a y makes a name more girly. It just looks misspelled to me.
This. And I must say, I do like Cameron for a girl. It is a GP name for me.
magsugar13:cameron is a boys name to me which i dont likecamryn is even worse and doesnt make the name more feminine
I totally agree. I'm not a fan of the name anyway and Camryn is just a made up spelling of it. If you must use the name on a girl just spell it the traditional way.
Please, for the love of God, people who have girls need to:
1. Stop using all the boy names for girls. I just know DS's name is going to be next and it makes me mad.
2. Stop spelling them with Ys and acting like names that are pronounced the same but misspelled are somehow more feminine. They are just misspelled.

I happen to personally know 3 different non-celebrity women named Cameron. I thought it was fairly accepted as a female name. But that's just what I've been exposed to.
But OP please, please don't put a Y in there. That just makes it incorrectly spelled, not feminine.

Okay, I feel compelled to reply to this one. I usually ignore these kinds of posts and am completely non-confrontational. By thebump standards I'm a glitter farting, rainbow shitting ray of sunshine. For real. And even I don't like you, OP.
I think of it as a boy name. Sorry.
