Most truly unisex names do tend to be nature names...which kind of bother me. Why are nature names viewed as unisex? Is it because it's gender-less? If so, would Lily on a boy be acceptable? Or no because it's a flower?
What about Fawn then? Which is a young deer, and a colour (according to wikipedia at least)?
What about Briar, Garland and Fern?
I think I'm going to compile a list of names that should be considered truly unisex, and equally appropriate for use on boys and girls.Laurel - 21 - Toronto

Boys are named girl names these days. 26 boys in 2011 will have to go through the pain of having to answer to Isabella.
But I do think that word names, such as Juniper or Phoenix or Gray, don't have a specific gender. Of course, I do have preferences on their genders, but in reality River technically isn't tied to either gender. Same with place names, like Jordan or London, but not the ones that are traditionally male (i.e. Paris).~lucy reine~~ celestine eira ~ mary simona ~ elizabeth echo "ellie" ~ eleanor maeve "lena" ~ vivienne isla ~ celia matilda "cici" ~ catherine aiko "rin" ~ elsa verity ~~ jasper red ~ evander lachlan 'evan'~ kai nicholas ~ ezra link ~ avery thomas ~ michael satoshi "mischa" ~ finn jeremias ~ ezekiel hayden ~ alexander rowan "sacha" ~

I've noticed the boy-to-girl swapping a lot myself. (It's not gender-swapping to me, because it's not even) I wondered why some names that are clearly boy favouring are often praised for girls, then I realised a possible reason when I saw the names of the nameberry creators. It's a personal taste thing.
A lot of things relating to names are personal opinion driven, rather than fact or even general consensus.Laurel - 21 - Toronto
