An Idle Thought

Why is it OK to call a girl Amber, but not Agate?

June, but not October?

Dawn, but not Dusk?

And why do girls have all the good names?

  1. An interesting point. Maybe it is okay but nobody bothered yet. I'd take it a step further and ask why girls get all the nice clothes too. No no, I don't mean I want to go around wearing dresses. I just think that a lot more effort and care goes into women's clothing, where as men's clothing seems so bland in comparison. That's my opinion anyway.

  2. I suppose it's because comparatively few men are interested in clothes.
