Choosing a name for an actual human is a tricky business, particularly if you don’t yet know the sex of your unborn baby.

Thankfully, one of the biggest trends in baby names (aside from Game of Thrones and monikers from eras gone by) is to choose something that could be used for either gender.

Yep, gender neutral or unisex baby names are on the rise, thanks in part to the celebrity likes of Kimye – Chicago, North and Saint, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds – Ines and James, and Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis – Wyatt, who are all flying the flag for unisex monikers.

Spotting that trend, sought to find out what are the most popular unisex baby names in England and Wales.

And it seems parents are becoming more open to the idea of picking gender neutral names for their little ones.

A survey of 1,466 British parents by the online marketplace revealed that almost half (45%) of British people would choose a unisex name, with over a quarter (27%) admitting they would choose a gender neutral name just to follow trends.

Noah, Charlie and James are the top three favourite unisex names in England and Wales.

While other, less familiar unisex names include: Arlo, Reggie, Ruby and Dylan.

Harper, which is the name of David and Victoria Beckham’s daughter, also gets the nod on the most popular list.

Other monikers that are more traditionally associated with girls, but can also be given to boys include Evelyn and Erin.

While, Max, Logan and Finley are some of the most popular choices for names that used to be associated with baby boys but now apply to both sexes.

For those parents-to-be still not sure if unisex names are for them, consider the fact that if the gender of your baby is still unknown you only have to pick one name that could apply whether you go on to have a little boy or a little girl. Winning.
