Name that sex. (And age.)

Bailey
Beryl
Chris
Dakota
Dylan
Jewel
Jordan
Kyle
Remi

Thanks to all who participate.

Dylan - male 35
Jewel - female 25
Jordan - female 18
Kyle - male 18
Remi - female 13
Riley - male 20

Alexi - male, 40ish - I cannot conceive this as an actual name, but for the existence of Alexi Lalas
Bailey - female, 18
Beryl - female, 70
Chris - male, 25
Dakota - female, 12
Dylan - male, 18

I’ve given general ages… I hope that’s ok.

Alexi - Male 30-ish
Bailey - Male 30-ish
Beryl - Female 50-ish
Chris - Male 21 (because that’s me ;))
Dakota - Female Tween
Dylan - Female Teenager
Jewel - Female 20-ish

Kyle - Male 40-ish
Remi - Female Teenage (but i’ve never heard the name before)
Riley - Male 30-ish
Pat - Female 60-ish
Taylor - Female Teenager

What’s this all for?

I can see some of these being different based on the age range so: First thoughts are bold in the cases that can go either way for me.

Alexi - boy 30 and over
Bailey - girl 20 and under
Beryl - girl 60+
Chris - boy
Dakota - girl 15 and under
Dylan - 15 and under= girl 25+ = boy
Jewel - girl 30
Jordan - boy born before 1995, girl -14
Kyle - boy 15
Remi - boy 25
Riley - over 18 is boy, 16- girlPat girl 40s
Taylor - over 25 = boy, under = girl

Alexi - teenage girl
Bailey - 4-year-old girl
Beryl - 70-year-old man
Chris - 30-year-old woman (her real name is Christine)
Dakota - 7-year-old boy
Dylan - 10-year-old boy
Jewel - 12-year-old girl
Jordan - 5-year-old girl
Kyle - 8-year-old boy
Remi - 45-year-old man (my mechanic, for example)
Riley - 6-year-old girl
Pat - 50-year-old woman
Taylor 32-year-old man

But my prediction is:

these will all turn out to be kids in a preschool class, probably all girls too am I close?

Without looking at other people’s answers:

Alexi – Female. Probably young.
Bailey – Male, could be any age.
Beryl – Female, probably 60+
Chris – Probably male, could be any age.
Dakota – Female, very young (under 15)
Dylan – Male, probably under 40
Jewel – Female, young-ish.
Jordan – Probably male. Under 40.
Kyle – Male, young-ish.
Remi – Male, French
Riley – Not sure.
Pat – Could be almost any age or either sex, depending on what it’s short for.
Taylor – I’d probably guess female, definitely young.

Somehow I forgot Pat. Girl 50s.

Thanks.

And I forgot Madison. (If that changes anything.)

And now I see Pat wasn’t forgotten in my previous post. Now she’s 10 years older too.

Yes, Remi is a name. In my world, it’s the name of a Hispanic* guy who’s about 25.

*Mentioned because I assumed it was a Spanish name based on that.

Madison - Girl 7

Answering this before reading any of the other responses…

Alexi–either a Russian guy or a youngish (American) girl
Bailey–a teenage or younger girl
Beryl–an old lady
Chris–could go either way, over a huge range of ages
Dakota–a pre-teen girl
Dylan–a pre-teen boy (or I guess a very yuppie girl with a sister named Madison)
Jewel–a woman, either 60+ years old or 20s and under
Jordan–a teenage or younger boy
Kyle–a 20s-ish man
Remi–I’ve never heard this name before. I guess female?
Riley–20s or younger, either male or female
Pat–like Chris, could go either way. I picture this name with an older demographic, 30s and up.
Taylor–same as Riley.

Edited to add that I put that part about Madison before reading Hilarity N. Suze’s post about it. Ha!

Posted without reading the rest of the thread:

Kyle - Male, 22
Remi - Female, 17

I could see most of these being names of current pre-schoolers/Kindergarteners. Not Pat or Beryl, though.

If this is just casual interest, the best selling book Freakonomics has a whole section devoted to it with lots of interesting commentary. I was reading it this afternoon so I won’t answer because I think mine would be tainted.
