But That's a Boy's Name!

These brain teasers rely on your ability to recognize groups of common attributes. For each of these puzzles you'll need to figure out why the words or letters are grouped as they are. Sometimes you will be asked to pick the odd-one-out or to place a new word into the correct group.

I may be wrong, but I answered Alex because it's the only one there which can be used as it is for both genders?

That's exactly what I did

I didn't think about that, but before deciding on this one as the one I submit I thought about one where all the names were dual gender, excluding one. Glad I picked the tougher one.

I would argue that Dan is commonly used as a shortened form of both Daniel and Danielle so Alex is not the only dual-gender name.

Stop worrying about whether the names are dual gender! The point is that if you add the letter "a" to all the names listed (except Pete), they become girl's names.

You can make all the names female except petes

I know plenty of girls named alex

@Candi7 yes, and with an 'A' added you have another female name.

but alana seems a little weird to me unless it is supposed to be helena but that is not just adding an A

Google it. Also I have met girls named Alana.

What does "Alexa" mean? Is that seriously a name?

To anyone commenting about the names, google it before you even do so. There are female names from all over the world. Ever met an Anika? It exists.

Got it. To the others that are saying, "But _____ name isn't common!" They all are, and I know at least one person with each name. Some of them two or three. Alana IS a fairly common name.

I thought it was Robert because they are all one syllable names except Robert which is two. That works too, doesn't it?

I have no idea why it came to me,but I had the answer in a flash. This one is very new by the editors standards.

I didn't get the correct answer, but I liked that quiz! Thanks!

@Babe - over half of the names on the list are multisyllabic names.
iggy39Aus*
Mar 29, 2013

Got the answer right. Thought it was so obvious as i read the names. I didn't want to look at the hint because I wanted to see if I was correct, Viola!!
Had fun it was the easiest one I think I have ever done and I loved it.
Thanks for posting.
