"My grandgrandson is Adrian. I love him but don't like his name. I think it doesn't fit him. My granddaughter expected a girl, she was sure that it will be a girl and didn't check a gender of her child. SHe said that she is sure and if it won't be a girl, then she would like to have a surprise. They chose a name for a girl - Adrienne - because her partner is French and didn't choose a name for a boy. So when the boy arrived they just called him Adrian. I think it was bad idea, now he is quite manly boy, tall for his age and really hates his name. He says it's "girlish". I think so. If he were my son I would give him more masculine and boyish name."
