Paging David Gates

“And Aubrey was her name,
A not so very ordinary girl or name.
But who’s to blame?”

Um, what? Not a girl, you say?

Oh. Never mind.

    Aubrey is a masculine name, he he. Use for girls is incorrect.

    Yeah, that’s what Beverly and Leslie told me.

    I know someone who named her baby girl Aubrey. And I met a girl named Aubrey checking out groceries at our local Trader Joe’s.

    That don’t make it right. My female Doctor’s middle name is Bill, so I guess that is unisex now as well. I never heard the Bread song, but do like Ian Whitcomb’s “I Want to Ask You a Personal Question Aubrey Dear”.

    When I was a kid, there was a family across the street that had named the second of their four children — a girl — “Billie.”

    I liked her, even though I was only — what, eight? — and I think she was fully 25% older than me.
