Love Neutral Names? Join The Club!

While opting for a unisex name for your little one is nothing new, the latest unisex baby names to hit search engines are certainly different from the names we most likely grew up with. Names of our own childhood, like Kelly, Jesse and Sam, are being replaced by these ‘trendier’ choices.

The Top Contenders In Cute Unisex Baby Names

Nameberry recently released their most popular unisex names of 2016, based on their search engine results. These are the names that had new parents around the globe clicking up a storm:

  1. Quincy
  2. Remi
  3. Winter
  4. Ellis
  5. Briar
  6. Indigo
  7. Sage
  8. Sasha
  9. Ray
  10. Quinn

It seems parents these days are blurring the line between the conventional gender-specific names.

Many ‘feminine’ names are being used for males, including Briar and Sasha. Typically masculine names also top the charts such as Ray and Quincy. Then there are the names that are completely gender neutral, like Quinn, Ellis and Winter.

I honestly wouldn’t know if these names are more common in males or females. Would you?

She is now a mum to one son, one daughter, one dog and one cat, all of whom live with her and her partner in Cairns, QLD. When not writing about the ups and downs of parenting, she is usually outside doing some form of physical activity or indulging in a glass of antioxidant-infused fruit drink. Okay, it's wine.
