Boy or girl? Choose a name that covers both angles!

Out with the old and in with the new! In 2019 unisex names are the trendy approach parents take when naming their children. If you had called your daughter “Charlie” 100 years ago, people would think you were strange! Now, more girls than boys are rocking the name. Some parents find it easier to plan since they only have one list of names to work from!

While it isn’t clear why unisex names are in vogue, one thing is clear – gender-fluid names are here to stay. Many are very meaningful, while others have a nice ring to it. Have a look at our different categories, separated into Nature, Geography, Personality/Character, Colour and even names inspired by jobs!
