Are you searching for gender-neutral baby names that aren’t too common? We have a list of some really cool, unique and trendy unisex names and their meanings that are perfectly suitable as baby girl names or baby boy names.
A few of them are popular but most are rare. What I do hope is that as you go through them, you will find at least one that will make your heart sing.

This list actually contains 25 unisex names but I only included the meanings of the names for the first 10 because it proved to be a little tedious to find the meanings. Motherhood in a pandemic is giving me a run for my money.
Sorry, if the name you like does not have a meaning attached. But not to worry, name meanings are actually easy to find on Google. Just type the name+ baby name meaning.

Okay let’s get to the names already.
Addison means Child of Adam or son of Adam. It can be used for both genders and will sound perfect whether you give it to a boy or a girl.
Other variations like Adison, Adyson, Addisyn, or Addyson. Feel free to give it your own spin as you like.

Ainsley means someone from Annesley or Ansley which are places in England. Although I have heard this name used mostly for girls, Ansley is a gender-neutral name and can be used as a male name too.
A variation of this is Aynsley.

The name Ashton originates in old English language and means from Ash Tree Town. Other variations of the name are Ashten, Ashtin, Kashton
When I think of this name, the first thought that comes to mind is Ashton Kutcher, the famous American actor. Some notable women called Ashton are Ashton Loclair, a retired gymnast from North Carolina and Ashton shepherd, country music singer-songwriter.

This personalized baby bodysuit featuring the name Ashton is such a perfect baby shower gift or for a coming home outfit.
Blaire means a level field or plain or meadow. It is actually one of those names that I don’t hear that often. Its variation is Blair.
When trying to think of famous people named Blaire, I remembered the former Prime Minister of the UK, Tony Blair. I also did a little digging for a female called Blaire and found Blaire Hiller a University of Kentucky Volleyball Alumna.
Whether you chose to name your son or daughter Blaire/Blair, they will have some great namesakes to look up to.

Blake means pale blonde or dark hair or skin.
I am a big fan of The Voice TV show so the first “Blake” I thought about was, of course, Blake Shelton, country musician and the longest-running coach at The Voice. For the female version of the name, there is Blake Lively, an American actress known for her role in the drama series, Gossip Girls.
And how beautiful is this wooden name sign for the nursery?

Cassidy means clever one or one with curly hair. Some variations of the name are Kassidy, Cass, Cassie, Cassy, or Casey.

Charlie means free man (or woman😉). It can be used for both genders though and I think it would make a really cute girl name. I know a number of male “Charlies” in real life but I keep thinking it would be so sweet on a girl!
Some variations of the name Charlie that you can use are Charli or Charly

Morgan originated from Wales and means bright sea. I love the name Morgan but partially it’s because one of my favorite people on Instagram is Morgan Harper Nichols. Her art and poetry have carried me through so many seasons, now I just love that name. By the way, if you love poetry, her book, “All Along You Were Blooming” is absolutely awesome. It’s a staple on my coffee table.
If you need a male “Morgan” name inspiration think Morgan Freeman the actor with a distinctive voice that we all can’t seem to get enough of.

I was too impatient to wait to find out the gender at birth for both my children but I think it would be such a sweet surprise if you choose to wait until the baby is born to find out. I know a few of my friends who waited and they say it was a wonderful surprise. Are you choosing to wait until birth to find out the gender?
If you can be able to overcome the temptations from gender reveals and gender-themed baby showers, go for it mom. What you should not do though, is go to labor before you pack your bags and get the baby stuff you need ready.
