Thoughts About vs. Unisex Names
Like the names, but not sure if we want to use them. Talked to our family about them and got mixed answers, so asking for outsiders opinions. What do you think about unisex names? Also if you could list your favorites if your for them, and your favorite gender specific names if your against unisex names. Thanks!
The Top Baby Name is...
Casey/Kasey is pretty much the only name i like for a boy or a girl. Im not too keen on unisex names. Some people just go way to far with naming their little girls ALL boy names. Its hard to name a little boy anything nowadays for fear he will have a little girl in his class with the same name.
Personally, I’m not a fan of them for girls because they’re all originally boy names that have been co-opted for girls. I like them for the original gender.
However they are quite common now, on both boys and girls. In past years parents would drop a boy’s name once girls started using it. Now there are so many being used for girls that many parents of boys are no longer abandoning those names. They wouldn’t have anything to name their boys if they did. So names like Avery and Emerson are still rising in popularity for boys despite being more common for girls.
My favorites are Quinn, Emerson and Morgan.
I LOVE unisex names but typically only for girls. I grew up with girls mostly with unisex names so they all seem feminine to me. My favorite girl unisex names are:
There are some names that are truly unisex, but most are more popular for one gender or the other. It just depends on the name. Avery for example is much, much more popular on girls, although it is also used on boys. Morgan is another example... masculine yes, but certainly recognized as a girls name now.
I cannot stand the trend of names that are true boys names being used on girls. I don\’t consider those unisex.
I think they’re okay if they’re used for either gender. If they’re only for girls, they’re not unisex. Like somebody naming their daughter Spencer and then getting pregnant with a boy and being upset that they can’t name him Mason because people are starting to name girls Mason. If you’re not hypocritical about it, it’s okay. I even know of some people who pick one name to give their baby no matter if it’s a boy or girl.
Nearly all the names considered unisex today were true boy names just a few decades ago. They only become unisex when enough people use them for girls. Any boy name could potentially end up being unisex, no matter how true a boy name it seems right now.
I read a while ago that there are no boy names anymore, only girl and unisex. The more I see, the more I think that might be true.
I don’t like it, but that’s the way it seems to be going.
I love unisex names on girls! But I hate boys names on girls. I hate that people are naming their daughters Ryan, Dylan, Tyler, Carter, Parker, Mason.. that irks me, in my eyes those are all boys names. However I love names like Avery, Aubrey, Taylor, Casey, Peyton and Skylar on girls.
I prefer girls to have feminine names and boys to have masculine names.
Hate unisex names!
Absolutely hate them, they are not unisex they are boys names.
