This year for the first time we’ve calculated a list of top unisex names 2011: names listed on Nameberry for both genders that are winning the highest number of page views.
Unisex name popularity is always tricky: Aren‘t most parents searching for top names Harper and Quinn interested in those names for girls? We believe they are, and if those two names were counted in the girls’ tally, they’d rank among the Top 20.
But in fact, some parents are interested in Harper and Quinn as boys’ names, and many of the other names on this list — Sawyer, Rory, and Riley, say — may be considered equally for both genders, while choices such as Parker or River may be used more often for boys.
Here are the top unisex names 2011 on Nameberry.
