Awfully close to Maxwell Drew and just as boysih. I swear I am naming my next 4 sons Anabelle, Susan, Debby, and Jessica. And of course my next daughter will be Bruce Anthony. Who cares, right?!

Yay congrats to him 🙂 Woo more athletes on here please!

weird name, do they think spelling it with a y will make it look feminine? anyway, not my kid so i don’t care. i just think it’s a really odd thing to name your child.

Congrats to them, and I actually think Camryn is quite feminine, especially when spelled that way. 🙂

No word of a lie, I was just telling a friend over lunch today that I love the name Camryn (yes, spelt that) for a girl.

Hmmm I wonder if this is my sign lol!

My daughter is Camryn and obviously, I think it’s adorable. Cameron Diaz, Camryn Manheim?? It’s not *that* unusual. I do think the Y makes it more femenine.

i don’t care what people name their kids, i will say that as a Brit the name cameron/camryn has EXTREMELY negative connotations at the moment. but that doesn’t matter in this little girl’s case 🙂

I love the name, but then again my daughters name is Camryn Ryleigh. Just remember, all babies are a blesssing, no matter the name.

Court on

Aww I think her name is adorable 🙂 Last time I checked it was his baby. Meaning he can name her whatever he feels like. and you shouldn’t judge what people name their children because you do not know the meaning behind the name.

Congrats 🙂

I know quite a few Cameron’s and Camryn’s…….and they are ALL girls. If I named my child that name, it would be a girl for sure.
