Carey is my brother's name! So of course I think it makes a great boy's name!

K is more popular for capitak letter name spellings because it's Germanic, and really has nothing to do w/a name being masc or fem.

My son's name is Caden and people always want to spell it w/a K.
But I grew up surrounded by family members w/C names so it just seemed more natural to me.

Op I really wouldnt worry about others thinking it sounds feminine, it's a classic name, and there are so many names that use to be masc but were adopted as a fem name.

Re: Is this boy name too girly?

My uncle is Bruce Cary. He's a senior Coast Guard officer, so IMO, he's pretty manly. I think I wouldn't do it with an E though.

Re: Is this boy name too girly?

Girly in my opinion. I don't think spelling makes a difference either. My name can be spelled 3 different ways. The only time it makes a difference is in computer records. The computer does care how it is spelled.

I know two men named Carey, one spelt Kari. I think if you like the name, you should use it!!

My FIL's middle name is Cari (but not sure the pronunciation you're going for. His is phonetically car-ee, not care-ee.) we were going to use it for a middle name for a girl, but DH felt that might bother FIL because FIL is insecure about it. Just my two cents.
