Taylor, Riley, Casey, Jordan, or names like that?

I have always liked Casey for a boy. But not for a girl. The rest though I am not crazy about.

    I am not a particular fan of androgynous names.

    I think all names are unisex. I don't think you can really gender a name since it's just a social construct based on tradition. I'd much rather see moms make up names for their kids, since each child is unique.

    All 3 of my children have unisex names..

    My oldest, a boy, is Skylar

    My middle, a girl, is Willow (of my 3 this is the only one I wouldn't choose for the opposite sex, even though it has been done.)

    And my youngest, a girl, River.

    So, yes. I like unisex names. :)

    Nope. Id let my child change her name is she was trans to a unisex name. Not to boyish though.

    Love them. I even like boys names on girls. My youngest is Troy. NOT because I wanted a boy, but because I really liked the name. If she was a boy her name would have been the same.

    My best friend's little girls are Evan and Ethan.
