Those unisex names aren't unisex at all really are they?! They are all boy's names and I'd be saddened to see any girls with those names.
I agree about the trends, sound about right to me.

Hmm... I don't see any of the names on that list as genuinely unisex. They're just boys names being used on girls.
As for the other trends... I quite like the prevalence of nature names, and I'll admit a weakness for cowboy names.Silas ~ Gideon ~ Lincoln ~ Ezekiel ~ Malachi ~ Samuel ~ Ezra ~ Charlie ~ Gabriel ~ Elliott
