For a girl? I'm not keen on it for a boy personally because, as a general rule, I don't like 'old fashioned' names, but somehow it feels more modern for a girl. I noticed that in the 2010 baby name stats there were 167 girl Sydneys but only 26 boys- has the y spelling become the accepted version for a girl? My grandad was called Sydney so it would be nice to commemorate him in some way What does everyone think of it for a girl? TIA
Isnt Neve Campbells Scream character a Syndey? Thats the first thing that sprung to my mind. Also Cyd Charisse. Im a bit mixed as to whether I actually like it. On one hand it reminds me a bit of the Taylor trend which Im not keen on, but I think Syd, or Cyd, is quite cute.
I know one, and I love it for a girl despite it being a city, whereas I would turn up my nose at Paris or London (even though Paris is also a Greek name) <irrational> -- I like the sound of it. I think it sounds almost like a classic name.
Ummmmm...it is the name of the largest city in Australia and that would be the association everyone on my circle would make. Could make traveling a little awkward. Imagine if she went on a GAP year to Australia...
