Unisex Names

A unisex name is a first name that people use regardless of gender. For example, the name Alex may be given to a boy or a girl. Some unisex names are associated with longer, gender-specific names, for example Alexander (male), Alexandra (female).

These are "first names", also called "given names". First names tend to vary in popularity from year to year, and also between countries. For example, a popular first name in England may not be so popular in Australia or Canada - and vice versa. This page lists about 50 unisex names that are generally popular in English-speaking countries, but does not attempt to rank them in any way. The names are shown in alphabetical order.
