Gender neutral baby names aren’t quite as popular as last year, but unisex names like Quincy, Remi,  and Winter are more common. Past leading names like Emma and Noah are decreasing in popularity after a log run. It is safe to say that more unusual baby names will continue to be on the rise and Edward, Linda and John are long gone.
