Unique Unisex Baby Names

These unisex names are modern because they think outside of the box. For example, the name Stevie is often thought of as a boy's name, however we love how rock star it sounds on singer Stevie Nicks! Jessica Simpson just gave her daughter the unisex name of Maxwell. You can switch up the spelling to make these names more feminine or masculine, for example Logann for a girl instead of Logan, or Billie for a girl instead of Billy.
