Any opinions on unisex names? Any you love? Hate?

I guess I'll start. I like Ryanne, Rylie, Bailey, Morgan, MacKenzie, and a few others for girl names. I love the name Shannon also, I think that is unisex too. Some unisex names just don't seem unisex to me and I couldn't imagine a little girl with certain "boys" names or a little boy with certain "girls" names. KWIM? Ryanne's name is unisex but addding the E pretty much ends any confusion to whether or not she is a girl. I wouldn't want people to always be unsure of the gender of my child based on his or her name. Or if a unisex name is used, a very girlie or masculine middle name should follow depending on the gender. :smile: Anyone else?

I like unisex names a lot, but I agree that there are just some that don't sound like they should be boys nmes. Some I like are:
Jayme (getting overused now with girls, but still love it)
Rylee (I like it spelled Riley for a boy and Ryleigh for a girl)

Not a fan of them. My name is Terri and I HATED it growing up. <_<

I'm a big fan of the ambigender names, but I do also think that its easier for a gal than a guy to have one. (Case in point - I knew a boy Shannon in HS, and it was harder for him)

My own DD is Quinn, a name that I think goes well w-either gender, and if she ever has a sis, I will try and think of a similarly unisex name, I think.

Some names I've heard and liked:

Shay (or Shea)

Not a fan of them at all. But to each their own!!

Not much of a fan...but that's just me! Some of the names are really beautiful, just not for me to use! :D
