I agree somewhat. I have names that I like that are I guess considered Unisex. But most of the names that I like, I have mostly heard them on one gender more than the other and that is the only reason I consider them Unisex is if I have seen it both on Males and Females. It does not really matter to me but I see your point some names just need to stay the way that they are meant to be! Such as your Fred situation! Also, names have steadily changed over the generations and names that were once male names are now considered girl names and vice versa! I agree and it does aggravate me when I see a name that is meant for boy/girl used on the opposite gender!
What i really don't like is when people can't see the other way around..they name their daughter Michael but they can't see why someone would name their son Lillian.

I was just looking through some polls and when people say a name is unisex the mostly mean they take a traditional boy and slap on a sticker saying it is unisex. ??? What. So many people could name their daughters Adam (meaning man) does that make the name unisex? It is really weird how people come up with a name they like for a girl and use "unisex" as a excuse for using the name. Alright how about Fred...I like it for a girl does that make it unisex? No. Does any body agree or disagree..conversation?
I do not agree at all. I think names that are appropriate for you are the one's that you should consider. Many people think of my name Kendall as a unisex name; However, it depends on if they know a male or female with that name whether or not they think it is masculine/feminine. I have never heard a girl named Adam or Frank...but there are plenty of beautiful names that are not overly cutsie and feminine...something that is also appropriate as an adult! If you like ultra-feminine names then stick with what you like! Good luck.

I totally agree on this. Ryan and Ryann are the same name, Ryann is no more feminin. Thats what is so difficult with deciding which spelling of Rhys/Reese I should use if I have a gal! I hear many only say a certain spelling is the feminin way. But I wanted which spelling looks better, regardles of the gender : }

What I dislike most is when people just use a nickname as a scapegoat! OH Emerson is a girl name because it has the nickname Emmy! Yea...sure and the name Andrew is unisex because you can call her Annie!
