Trend: Gender-Neutral Baby Names – Which Name Tops List?



Jordan, Riley and Avery are the most popular unisex names for both boys and girls, according to data compiled by leading online business directory WhitePages.com
“We are seeing celebrities jumping on this trend. In the past year, Kristen Bell named her daughter Lincoln, Kim Kardashian chose North and Lisa Ling went with Jett, all selecting unisex names for their girls,” said Liz Powell, culture and trend Expert from WhitePages. “What’s interesting is that as unisex names grow, there are some names that seem to trend at almost an even split between males and females, including Riley, Peyton and Rowan. We expect to see this trend grow into 2014.”
This comports with Bellyitch’s own assessment last summer of the trend of celebrities giving their daughters masculine or gender neutral names.

For its analysis of the fastest growing names for boys and girls, WhitePages concluded that “Chloe”  and “Jacob” topped the list over the past 5 years though an old favorite, “William” was making a comeback as well.
