Unisex names or androgynous names have become a regular occurrence in the baby name world. Do you think a child’s name needs to evidently reflect a gender? It’s become more and more common in the United States to give children names that blur the line of devoted boy names and devoted girl names, but other countries might still hold on to the gender-specific tradition. Andy (Andrea) Carmichael was part of the main cast in the 1985 cult-classic The Goonies. Angel, played by David Boreanaz, made his “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” debut in 1997. Both in current media and in the lives of everyday people, neutral names are increasing with popularity. Here is our list of androgynous baby names!
Many couples choose to keep the sex of their baby-to-be a secret until he or she is born. This is not only exciting for the parents but for family and friends as well.
