Wow...this ended up being a very interesting poll for me!! So many different ideas about unisex names!!

As far as the name Cason, I was surprised that many people didn't seem familiar with it. I know a couple of young boys with the name, one is spelled Kason though, and I know a girl who wants to use the name for her baby if it is a girl and I think she will use the nn Casey.


Believe it or not....Asa is my favorite girl now right now :) , but I'm not surprised so many of you disliked it, it is different :) . And to be honest, I'm not really sure where I came up with it. I know it was used on a tv show several years ago, but that wasn't really my inspiration for it!
