    'Girl' spellings of these unisex names?

    I only have two names, ha. I have an extraordinarily limited definition of 'unisex.'

    Devon
    Adrian

    Also, any other unisex names would be appreciated.
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    Adrienne

    I don't think there's a "girl" spelling of Devon. It's just a boy's name to me.

    Both of the girl Devs I have known are Devin, not Devon. Devon are boys.

    Adrian should be boy in my opinion YMMV, but yes people use it for girls. I also like Adrianne and Adrienne.

    I think Quinn is unisex.

    Good Luck!

    Devon - While I know a girl named Devon who spells it like that, I also have met several girls named Devin. (With an I in place of the O.) I actually quite like this name, especially with the nn Dev.

    Adrian - To me, this IS the feminine spelling, but I have also heard of Adrianne, Adrien, and Adrienne.

    Of course, any spelling is fine for any child, but as the bearer of an androgynously-spelled unisex name, I would have preferred growing up with a spelling that more clearly showed that I'm a girl.


    Just a few unisex names:
    Day
    Ellis
    Greer
    Kieran
    Linden/Landon
    Shiloh
    Sage

    Plus a lot of word names and color names are unisex - Gray, Sparrow...

    Hope this helped!

    I actually like the Adrian spelling for a girl but I think the proper spelling is Adrienne. Devin would be my girl spelling but I have seen Devyn.
