    I think it's ok.....but my BIL had a dog named Bailey........actually i have known several dogs named Bailey. It's cute but am not to sure if it would suit a woman (a little girl yes). Just trying to be honest......

    I don't really like the name. My ex boss named his son Bailey. I also know alot of people who have named their dogs Bailey. So, that sticks in my head alot. I do think it works more for a girl than a boy though.

    It's so frustrating thinking of names isn't it? I'm not even pregnant yet and DH and I don't like the same names. :dohh:

    Like others have said, I like the name but it's a very common dog's name (and my doggy's name)!

    Love it, my LO would have been named Bailie if it were a boy or a girl (well, probably would have changed my mind later on when I knew the sex but never got to that part:():flower:

    I really like the name Bailey, i think it's def a unisex name... works well for a little boy or girl! Like a few others said, the only problem is it's commonly used for dogs... although... lots of people give their dogs "people names" so, this is true of lots of names (ex. Max, Marley, Sam, Toby).

    Love it, for a girl especially! One of my close friends out in Florida is called Bailey, it seems to be more of a popular girls name out there. She's in her mid 20's and it's doing her well!
