Jordan, Tristan, or Charlie? You decide.

Back when I was pregnant with my first child, my husband and I seriously considered naming our first born Jordyn. It was actually a name of a co-worker that I used to know and we loved the fact that even though it was a traditionally masculine name, it also sounded like a great name for a baby girl. Even though it was in our top three choices of baby names at the time, it didn’t make the final cut although it’s a name that I sometimes still think about today.

Yet, fast-forward almost eight years later and “post-gender” names are on the rise, and big time, too. In fact, it almost seems like monikers such as Michael, Jennifer, and Melissa are going to be names of yesteryear as parents are now going in a totally different direction when it comes to naming their babies.
