Honestly, I find truly unisex names kind of boring...and I really don't count a lot on this list as unisex.

I really don't like this trend, either. I do like the names Quinn and Avery, though, and have considered Avery as a version of my own fn (April).

I don't mind unisex nn's, like Alex, or Charlie, but as stand alone names these are best left to the gender they were intended for, IMO.
