Gender has been a huge discussion topic in America this year, mainly because we let “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” dictate our national news cycle.
And apparently the big trend in baby names so far this year is keeping things as gender-ambiguous as possible.
BabyCenter.com says the names that are seeing the biggest jumps in popularity this year are unisex ones.
The top 10 are: Amari, Karter, Phoenix, Quinn, Reese, River, Rory, Rowan, Sawyer, and Taylor. All of those have been going to more boys AND girls than they did in 2014.
According to Babycenter, the reason is, quote, “Millennials are an open-minded and accepting group, and they don’t want their children to feel pressured to conform to stereotypes that might be restrictive.
“Just as companies have started making more neutral kids’ clothes and taking ‘boy’ and ‘girl’ labels off toys, an increasing number of parents are choosing unisex names.”
