Are you looking for gender neutral name ideas for your new baby? I love gender-neutral names like Tyler, for example, that are awesome for baby boys and baby girls. While some people may think that is a more masculine name, it is totally fitting for a little girl and actually a quite popular name. That’s just one example. Below you will a huge list of popular unisex first names.

When we were expecting our third, we decided the name would be Koa and I honestly thought this would be the perfect either way, as a boys name or girls’ name. I wanted to create a list that would go beyond the popular choices and give new parents tons of creative ideas! Whether you are looking for a first or middle name, this list is a great place to start.

Modern parents are using more unique unisex names than ever before. When it comes to the perfect name for your child, only you can decide. Having trouble wrapping your head around unique names for your baby? Think Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds. Blake can be a girl’s first name or a boy’s first name, and so can Ryan! Both of those are very popular unisex baby names. Check out this list of names and don’t be afraid to get creative with alternative spelling to make a name more unique or easier to pronounce.

Pro parent tip: Once you choose your baby’s name, go ahead and reserve their email address for them (and you can start emailing them!).

Deciding on the perfect baby name:

Whether you use a name from this list or get some ideas for alternate spellings, I hope this gender-neutral baby names list was helpful! I know deciding on a name is one of the toughest decisions to make before your baby arrives! No matter the type of name, gender-specific names or names that can be used no matter the baby’s sex, it has to feel right to you! You could even use this list of names as a great inspiration to come up with new names of your own! You could also consider your mother’s maiden name if you would like to keep your family name going.

My suggestion is, while you’re looking for a first name, think about potential middle names and nicknames all at the same time. Consider all nicknames kids at school may be able to come up with to call your child to avoid some tragic experiences. Whatever you choose, I am excited for you and this fun, if a bit daunting, experience. I hope this list helped you find a great gender-neutral name!
