    Some of my favorite names are on there, too!  I love Finley, Sage, and River, and I actually know both boys and girls with all of those names!

    Definitely some great names on the list although I just can’t consider Aubrey or Carter as unisex name.  Incidently, DH and I have had a long standing debate about whether Luca can be a girl name.  He’s Italian and insists that it’s strictly for boys but I think it sounds feminine.  Looks like there are people out there that agree.

    I don’t think all those names are unisex, but I like some of them.

    Of that  list I personally like Rory, Micah, and Quinn… and I would probably use them for a girl. I tend to like stronger masculine names for boys.

    Interestingly there’s only 2 that I don’t care for on that list.  On the whole, I like “unisex” names for girls though.  I prefer more typically masculine names for boys.

    I grew up with a unisex name, and I HATED it.  People would actually look at me – long hair and boobs and feminine clothing and all – and then call me Mr. LastName.  When I got to high school, I started going by a more feminine nickname because I was so sick of it.  I would never give my kids unisex names.

    I truly do not like any of those names.  I don’t see why picking a name is such a big deal, but then again I have never been pregnant.  With my dog (haha I know not totally comparable) I picked up a baby book in the waiting room, found the first one I liked & was done with it.  (It’s Lucy)

    I have one of the names on the list and I’ve always liked it. I do tend to use my middle name, though, to endeavour to avoid being called Mr.

    I voted that I like unisex names, but these are not my top ones. When I was little, I was really into the idea of it but those names have changed.  I also think it’s interesting how names become unisex, i.e. I only knew little boys named Jordan when I was little, but only a few years later, there started to be some girls and now it is a totally unisex name. I wonder if Maxwell is ever going to catch on as truly unisex?

    I don’t have an opinion on unisex names really. I like some of them and I dislike others. It can be for either a girl or a boy. There are unisex names that I associate with boys and others I associate with girls. For instance, I don’t like Sam for a girl (usually short for Samantha) but I do think Max is cute on a girl (like Jessica Simpson’s Max, although I think Maxwell is a little much and for me invokes the image of that pig from those insurance commercials, the one who would stick his houd out the window with the pinwheel and go, “WHEEEE WHEEE”). 

    The ones from that list that I like, regardless of gender, are:

    Harper, Rowan, Avery, Rory (hi, Gilmore Girls), Emerson, Peyton and surprisingly for me, Teagan.

    @deetroitwhat:  I used to think that too until I was faced with it! i’m pretty set on a boys name but a girls..i have no clue. I hate every name i see haha…i’m hoping something will just click.  It took me 3 days after i got my dog to pick a name =/ hahah not sure why i thought baby names would be easy.

    I love most of those names! I think there is really one i don’t care for. i really love unisex and even (some) male names for girls. I went to school with a girl named Ryane (like Ryan) and i always thought it was so neat. I helped that she was really beautiful haha and my FIL’s name is spencer and i would really love that for a girl but i’m scared about offending him.
