If you heard the following names but didn't see the child/know any other details, would you assume they were boys or girls? You haven't seen the names written down so spellings make no difference.

Frankie
Ronnie
Charlie
Sidney/Sydney
Morgan
Riley
Jordan
Ashley
Aubrey
Addison
Emerson
Mackenzie
Phoenix
Brodie
Brogan

Boys

All apart from Aubrey I would say as unisex. Aubrey I would think as male.

bunnyrabbit93 Mon 20-Feb-17 08:39:17

Unisex but I would say Aubrey is female

Catdogcat Mon 20-Feb-17 08:40:29

I would think:

Girl for Aubrey, Addison, Emerson and Brogan

Boy for the rest

CocoPorridge Mon 20-Feb-17 08:40:55

They are all unisex, just wondering what YOU would think the child was if you heard the names.

Artandco Mon 20-Feb-17 08:41:43

All boy, girl for Mackenzie maybe if your American

I know 11 children with these names and they are all girls.

TheGoodEnoughWife Mon 20-Feb-17 08:44:55

Is influenced by children you have known. I have known both Charlie and Jordon as girls plus a Morgan who is a boy.

Mol1628 Mon 20-Feb-17 08:47:24

Sidney/Sydney-girl
Morgan-both
Riley-girl
Jordan-boy
Ashley-girl
Aubrey-boy
Addison-girl
Emerson-boy
Mackenzie-girl
Phoenix-boy
Brodie-boy

Heavily influenced by people I have met who have these names/ American television.

Frankie - if young: boy, adult: girl
Ronnie - boy
Charlie - boy
Sidney - boy
Morgan - boy
Riley - boy
Jordan - boy
Ashley - girl
Aubrey - boy
Addison - girl
Emerson - boy
Mackenzie - either
Phoenix - boy
Brodie - boy
Brogan - boy

But I wouldn't be surprised if they turned out to be the opposite of what I had assumed. I know two girls called Jordan and can't remember the last time I met a boy Jordan, but I would still think boy.

MelCookie Mon 20-Feb-17 09:18:05

Emerson, Phoenix, Riley = girls. The rest, boys.

Cobee Mon 20-Feb-17 09:22:47

Frankie - if spelt that way girl
Ronnie - boy
Charlie - boy
Sidney/Sydney - girl
Morgan - wouldn't presume girl or boy
Riley - boy
Jordan- boy
Ashley - spelt that way boy (girl if spelt Ashleigh)
Aubrey - girl (I think it's because it's sounds like Audrey and I don't know of a child with this name!)
Addison - girl (because of greys anatomy)
Emerson - boy
Mackenzie - boy
Phoenix - girl
Brodie - girl
Brogan - boy

They are all rather council estate names.
