A benefit of choosing a unisex baby name is that, one day, your child can walk into a job or a university interview free of any preconceived gender stereotypes.
There are, however, a few drawbacks: Your daughter might mistakenly have a blue truck emblazoned on a name card when she visits nursery for the first time. Or your son might be handed a pink crown party favour at a birthday party because the hostess guessed wrong.
They aren’t for everyone, but these unisex Pregnancy/Baby Names are here to stay.
Here’re some of our favourites:
Names like Parker, Harper and Bailey got their first usages as distinctly boy or baby namess but eventually became gender-neutral due to their popularity. So if you’re looking to be a trendsetter – and are sure that your child won’t be a victim of unforeseen consequences for it – pick a name you love, regardless of what gender it’s supposed to be!
