Looking for some inspiration?
For pending parents waiting until that very first birthday (the excitement!) to find out if they’re bringing a little girl or baby boy into this world, the unisex is a life-saver; sure you’re prepared no matter what pops out!
There are many names that can work equally well for both sexes, and here is our very own little Top 10, just to get your imagination working!
Rowan has Gaelic roots (a home-grown winner, in other words) and means “little red-haired one.” But it’s definitely cute enough to use for children with any/all colors of hair.
If you’re a Glee fan, you probably already know this name from the character Quinn Fabray, but it can also be a fun variation of the name Quincy for a boy. Cuuute!
MEGA popular for boys the last few years, but equally ADORABLE for little girls!
Pronounced “Ky,” this Hawaiian name means “ocean,” so if you want to bring a bit of nature into your baby’s life, this is a beautiful choice. (It’s got some celebrity links too, with Donald Trump’s granddaughter carrying the name Kai Madison, which is just flipppin’ adorable if you ask us!)
The name Sawyer translates to “woodcutter” and has English origins, and it has rocketed to popularity as a girl’s name. And if you use if for boys; who can forget HOT Sawyer from Lost?!
Charlie is a pet form of Charles or Charlotte, so it’s perfect for boys or girls. Rebecca Romijn and her husband Jerry O’Connell named their twin girls Charlie and Dolly. We can’t even with the cuteness of it all.
Until Kimye picked it for their own little love-bug, North was mostly a male name. But now (shocker!) it is also SKYROCKETING in popularity as a girl’s name.
This moniker used to be a royal Scottish name for boys, but all kinds of variations like Finn and Finnlay are also now becoming popular girls’ names. And why not? We are LOVING this particular unisex name!
Ryan Reynolds and his actress wife Blake Lively (who herself knows what a unisex name feels like!) opted for this classic moniker for their baby girl. We predict there will be many more baby girls called James in years to come!
Like a lot of trending names, Avery took the historical path of surname to male name to female name, but still remains a popular choice for boys as well. Love, love, love.
