Hi, I’m having BG twins in December, and I want to name one Sterling. I absolutely love that name, problem is, some people think it’s a masculine name and others a feminine name. So please help me, so I can name my babys. Thanks! ~Evelyn

Thank you, some friends of mine told me it was a girl name and I was afraid that if I called my son Sterling, people might think it’s a girl, but I’m relieved now

Sylvie would be a nice girl’s name to go with it!
