25 Unisex Baby Names We Love
by Martina Minarik
If you’re expecting a baby in 2020, then congratulations! What an incredible, life-changing time you’ve got ahead of you.
If you’ve started thinking about baby names, you’re probably trying to come up with something that you both like and can agree on. You might be looking for something original that goes beyond the traditional names that your parents and grandparents would have considered and you might be trying to avoid your child being the 5th in the year with the same name, right? Tempted by unisex baby names? It’s no mean feat choosing the right name for your baby...
A growing number of parents, perhaps inspired by modern celebrity couples, choose unisex baby names. Key reasons include:
- Unisex baby names are considered cool and original
- Parents want to give daughter, specifically, a name that is considered “strong”
- Parents want their children to grow up free of gender-specific stereotypes and choose a unisex name because it actively supports gender neutrality
Some parents choose names that refer to a place, others choose nouns or words that have a specific meaning to them and others pick a traditional name with an unusual spelling.
Focusing on the latter, here are 25 unisex baby names that we love!
