20 of Our Favorite Unisex Names for Girls

Now more so than ever, people are engaging in open conversations about gender fluidity and actively working to break gender norms, and that includes gender-neutral baby names. Names that were once given exclusively to boys like Emerson or Harvey are now more common for girls. Today there’s no need to give your baby a traditionally feminine name, not to mention unisex names are unique, cool, cute, and fun! If you’re in the market for a unisex baby name, we’ve created a list of 20 of our favorites that we think work really well on girls. Check them out below!

1. Aspen

Tree name (English) #224 for a girl
This English tree and place name was once given to both baby boys and girls, although it’s currently rare to meet a boy named Aspen these days, so it’s becoming harder to imagine a boy with this name.
