Jordan

Jordan is another one of those oh-so-trendy unisex names. And, as often is the case, as it gains popularity as a girls name, it becomes less popular as a name for boys. Historically, it comes from the Jordan River where John the Baptist baptized Jesus. The name had its heyday during the Michael Jordan era and has made a comeback as Jordyn.
