Top 10 Unisex Baby Names of 2013 — So Far!

One of my favorite baby-naming blogs, Nameberry, is on a roll this week! They’ve released the Top 15 Girl Names of 2013 and also the Top 15 Boy Names. And today they’re back at it with the Top Unisex Names so far for this year. I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough of baby names!

I have a love-hate relationship with unisex names and it mostly leans toward Hate. To me, there are just so many good and solid gender-specific names out there to use. But then I think that some unisex names are just super cool.

What do you think? Did you give your baby a gender-neutral name? Did you toss all “rules” out the window and name your girl a full-on boy name, like David?

Check out the top 10 unisex baby names from Nameberry’s list that I had the strongest reactions to, and tell me what you think of them!

    I actually know two Rowans, and both are boys. Could this name work for a girl? I think maybe it could. What do you think?

    Charlie is an adorable nickname for Charlotte, but using it as a full first name for a girl? I say, sure! Why not?
