Unique Unisex Names for Girls

Unique unisex names are one of my favorite categories for baby girls. (For boys too, but that’s another story.)

The 36 names here were all found below the Top 1000 baby names for girls on the most recent Social Security list, though many are quite well-used. Bellamy and Scout, for instance, were each given to over 200 baby girls in 2016, putting them in spitting distance of the Top 1000.

Some of these names — Devon, Flynn, Ronan — are used much more commonly for boys than for girls. Others, such as Abilene and Jubilee, were used only for girls last year, though they are names not traditionally gendered.

Unique unisex names are becoming more popular for both baby girls and baby boys. Some unisex names that were once quite rare, such as Harper and Riley and Quinn, now rank among the Top 100 baby names for girls in the US.

If you’re looking for unique unisex names sidestep conventional gender identity for your daughter, all of these have a lot of style.
