Wiki 上面解釋 unisex name
A unisex name, also known as an epicene name, is a given name that is often given to either a boy or a girl. Some countries, however, require that a given name be gender-specific (see German name). This list does not cover names in cultures where the names are often not gender specific, which is common in many cultures. For example, some African tribes have unisex names, and so do cultures which use names which are derived from properties, such as the Amish or many cultures in India.
Unisex names are often nicknames that are also used as given names, such as Alex and Chris. Alex can be considered a shortening of Alexander (a masculine name) or of Alexandra/Alexa (a feminine name); Chris can be considered a shortening of Christopher or Christian (both masculine names), or of Christina or Christine (feminine names).
Some names that were once predominantly used as masculine given names are now primarily feminine given names, including Alexis, Ashley, Beverly, Carol, Evelyn, Hilary, Jocelyn, Meredith, Shirley, Shannon, Sharon, and Vivian. Sometimes the modern adoption of a predominantly masculine given name follows the use by an actress (e.g. Drew Barrymore, Daryl Hannah) or fictional character (e.g. Tracy, Blake).
Some unisex names are homophones, pronounced the same for both genders but spelled differently. One common example of this is a final "y" for the masculine form and an "i" or "ie" for the feminine. (e.g. Terry and Teri, Jerry and Jeri, Tony and Toni, Johnny and Johnnie, Billy and Billie). Others have less regular spelling variations (Francis and Frances, Robin and Robyn, Sidney and Sydney, Lee and Leigh, etc.). In many cases, the spelling of what used to be a predominantly masculine name was altered to create a feminine variation. If the feminine variation becomes sufficiently popular, the use of the masculine variation may dwindle, and ultimately the name may be deemed feminine under any spelling.
Some names vary their gender from country to country or language to language. For example, Anne, which is feminine in English, is normally masculine in some Dutch provinces, but normally feminine in the rest of the country; or Jean, which is normally feminine in English and Scottish, is masculine in French. Laurence, which is normally masculine in English and Scottish, is feminine in French (the masculine form being Laurent).
Different parents may adopt the same unusual name for children of opposite gender.
Unisex names can be the source of humor, such as Julia Sweeney's sexually ambiguous character "Pat" on Saturday Night Live. A running joke on the TV show Scrubs is that almost every woman J.D. sleeps with has a unisex name: Jordan, Alex, Danni, Elliot, Jamie, etc. Similarly, the sex of the baby Jamie in Malcolm in the Middle was purposely kept ambiguous when first introduced at the end of the show's fourth season leading to speculation that it would remain unknown. However, the character's sex was revealed at the end of the first episode of season five.
Many Indian names become unisex when written with Latin characters because of the limitations of transliteration. The spellings Chandra and Krishna, for example, are transliterations of both the masculine and feminine versions of those names. In Indian languages, the final as of these names are different letters with different pronunciations, so there is no ambiguity. However, when they are seen (and usually, spoken) by someone unfamiliar with Indian languages, they become gender ambiguous. Other Indian names, such as Ananda, are exclusively or nearly exclusively masculine in India, but because of their a ending, are assumed to be feminine in Anglophone societies. Many unisex names in India are obvious and are never ridiculed. For instance Nehal is used commonly to name baby boys or girls in western state of India namely Gujarat. Most Sikh first names such as Harpreet, Gurpreet, Sukhjinder and Harjeet are unisex names and equally commonly given to either sex.

UNISEX NAMES: What’s Hot, What’s Not
When we wrote our first book, Beyond Jennifer & Jason, we hit on the idea of grouping unisex names into percentage categories–which were used more for girls and which for boys. These ranged from 90% feminine (Shannon and Tracy) to 75% feminine (Kim and Jan) to 50-50 (Ricky, Nicky) to 75% male (Kirby, Kyle) to 90% masculine (Addison, Glenn).
Most of those names have fallen completely off the radar (though long before Grey’s Anatomy, Addison was the nickname/surname of Bruce Willis’s macho character in Moonlighting), but the release of the new Social Security figures provides a good opportunity to check up on which side of the gender line unisex names are falling right now.
