Unisex Baby Names: Perfect Fits For Girls and Boys

Giving baby an unusual moniker seems to be the trend, especially in Hollywood. Parents trying to steer away from more traditional names, but not willing to go as far as Inspektor Pilot, Zuma or Bronx are turning to unisex labels for their babes. Names like Morgan, Charlie and Jordan are becoming increasingly popular to use for both lil ladies and lads. Riley took the number 16 spot for 2008's most popular girl's names while Dylan came in at number 26.

To see some other names that straddle the gender fence,


  • Ryan
  • Casey
  • Chase
  • Devon
  • Michael
  • Jamie
  • Reagan
  • Andy
  • Campbell
  • Finley
  • Ashley
  • Taylor
  • Cameron
  • Sam

Unfortunately for the boy's camp, the exchange rate is poor. The female list of names continues to grow as more masculine titles have jumped ship to the feminine side with the ladies reciprocating very little. Just think, have you ever met a boy named Katherine or Elizabeth? Probably not, but chances are you've known a pretty Alex or Andy. Families looking for a unique alias for their son may turn to other sources of inspiration: family names, storybooks or vacation spots.
