Agree with the comments about unisex names. And all the critiques of these particular choices.
Emerson literally means "son of Emery." I just do not understand why this is even considered unisex. It's a name that's trying to take classics like Emma or Emily and make it into an edgy, boys-names-on-girls-is-cool thing.
Parker just has no substance to it. Sounds like "barker." Actually, ironically, I once had a female dog by this name. It was cute, for a poodle.
Agree completely with pp about Sawyer. It does not appeal to me whatsoever for either sex. It's very masculine. I just looked it up and I am baffled that it's actually halfway up the ss list for girls—only appearing since 2010. Too trendy.
I think boyandgirl's suggestions are a million times more preferable than these three. Other unisex names I like or think are usable are:

I understand the appeal of Emma/Emmy as I named my daughter it but it baffles me that people actually like Emerson on a girl. Like littlemrsb said, it literally means "son of Emery". WHY would you want to give your daughter a name that means "SON OF"? Putting it on a girl doesn't change the meaning. Your daughter's name will still be "SON OF Emery".
Parker and Sawyer sound very masculine to me as well. Parker doesn't sound good on a girl because it sounds like "park her".
I like the suggestions of Marley, Hadley, and Harper.Current favorites:

The "r" ending of Sawyer and Parker runs into the "r" in Rose, plus I like Emerson for girls much better.
