Newest gender-bending trend: Boys Reclaiming Names from Girls
It’s been a truism that once unisex names become widely used for girls, parents abandon them for boys. Now we see a welcome reverse of that sexist trend, with boys reclaiming names that had long been going toward the girls. Most recent statistics see boys taking back ground on such popular unisex names as Alexis, Carey, Casey, Courtney, Darian, Devon, Elisha, Jamie, Jody, Jordan, Kai, Kayden, Kelly, Lane, Loren, Milan, Robin, Rory, Rowan, Sidney, Tatum, and Tracy. Star pitcher Madison Bumgarner helps make this trend a winner.
