male.
foppish posh.

Well a friend's dad was called Aubrey BUT the Bread song goes, 'and Aubrey was her name'

Perhaps it is a unisex name, hmm.

Aubrey - boy
Audrey - girl

Boy and poofy - to use very un-PC term grin

I had a big, fat grumpy (male) cat called Aubrey. Sorry but i wouldn't use the name on a child, male or female. It's ok for a grumpy old cat thoughwink

Don't like it at all, I picture an aging theatre foppish camp man.

It is a boys name - mind you I bet he gets beaten up at school by the cool kids for having such a twatty (poofy!) name!

DoubleBluff Sun 27-Jul-08 10:36:47

Aubrey is a family name of ours and I think its lovely.
It was on my shortlist as a mn for my dd2.
Unisex.

Aubrey is a boys/mans name - my old manager was an Aubrey - and he was a lovely man.

Although even approaching retirement he still got really ticked off when people confusd it with 'Audrey'

bluenosesaint Sun 27-Jul-08 11:28:07

Its a male name although has a very feminine 'feel' about it just MO obviously.

I'm really not keen ...

Aubrey is male, but many people won't listen properly when it's said and will hear it as Audrey, unfortunately. I do like it , though.
