This is helpful if you’re having a baby and AREN’T doing a gender reveal . . . A site called “Parenting by Number” poured through stats to find the most ANDROGYNOUS baby names that work for a boy OR a girl.

Here’s their Top 10, which has had a pretty even split in recent years.  Roughly half of the babies with each name have been boys, and half have been girls.

1.  Charlie.  When that’s the name on the birth certificate, it takes the top spot.  If you count Charles, it’s much more of a boys’ name.

2.  Blake.

3.  Emerson.

4.  Finley.

5.  Phoenix.

6.  Tatum.

7.  Rory.

8.  Dakota.

9.  Ari.

10.  Shiloh.

A few more from the Top 20:  Alexis . . . Skyler . . . Ocean  (???) . . . Jamie . . . Chandler . . . Justice . . . Robin . . . Ira . . . and Kacey with a “K”.

If you happen to have a name that works for both, you’re somewhat unique.  They found it’s only true for around 1% of all baby names.
