  • "I know a boy called Gale, and he said that as a kid he was often asked by classmates "Isn't that a girl's name?" I don't think he ever met anyone else with the same name, and many people spelled it G-A-I-L, like the girl's version. Persoanlly, though, i have always comsidered it my favorite boy's name and hope to give it to a son someday." Aug. 11, 2005: Report as inappropriate
