My husband and I are stuck on the name Cedar for our baby boy. Unfortunately, nobody else likes it! Is it girly or hippie? Be honest!

Oh, I LOVE it!
I think it sounds like a boy name. Can't tell you if it's too 'hippie' because I am kind of 'hippie'! I don't think it's really 'out there' or anything, though.

That's my nephew's middle name! I wouldn't pick it myself, but i think it's a pleasant, nice sounding name. I feel like we would inevitably shorten it to something like Seedy in our house though

I would say it is a hippie name but sort of like River in it's broad appeal and most definitely a boy's name.

My first thought was that Cedar and Serena sound really cute together. That being said, It does sound earthy/hippy, but that is not a bad thing (unless you dont like hippy things-lol) i like it. Unique, cute, def. not girly
And please do not give a rats a$$ what other people think of your baby name!

I think it's beautiful, but it's definitely hippie-ish. And the only Cedars I know in real life (2) are both girls, but I actually think it's a masculine name.

I think it's cute. And I'd say it's pretty gender-neutral... boy or girl. I think if you and your husband love it, go for it. People can have their own babies if they want a chance to name one...

Thanks for all the comments ladies! I really like it! I know that I shouldn't care what other people think. I just wanted to make sure that we are not the only ones on the planet that like it. If anybody says anything, I will reply by saying "Well,all my friends on MDC like it!!!"

That is right! We are the only ones whose opinions really matter!

For sure, everyone who meets your child will think he was named by hippies. I think it is a nice name, though I doubt I would use it. My taste where names are concerned may be more conservative than yours, however!

I like the name, definitely, and it is a great boy's name. I like unusual names, or at least names that are common things that are not necessarily traditional names.

It does sound unusual, but I don't think that it is TOO hippie.
