Gender: F Meaning of Lindsey: "Marshlands of Lincolnshire" Origin of Lindsey: English surname meaning "Marshlands of Lincolnshire" Lindsey's Popularity in 2016: #778

Lindsey is one of the few truly unisex names (rather than being a name that has changed genders). Over time the “ey” ending was usually reserved for women and the “ay” ending reserved for men. This tradition continues in the 2016 US Top 1000 rankings, with Lindsey retaining a considerable lead over Lindsay among girls in the USA.

In the UK, however, neither name was in the Top 4000; just four girls were named Lindsey, and three were named Lindsay, in England and Wales in 2014.
