The Most Popular Gender-Neutral Names by State in the Last Decade

the-most-popular-gender-neutral-names-by-state-in-the-last-decade

As more and more millennials become parents, the more and more popular gender-neutral baby names become. In fact, according to the baby names website Nameberry, gender-neutral monikers have spiked by 60 percent over the last decade and by 88 percent since 1985, and non-binary names were flagged as a major trend for 2019. So which baby names are parents truly loving? A new map from NetCredit breaks down the most popular options by state.

NetCredit, an online financial services provider site, analyzed data from the Social Security Administration between 1910 to 2018 to get a sense of the changing trends in gender-neutral names in each of the 50 states. (They defined “gender-neutral” as names that were given to at least 20 percent and at most 80 percent of each sex.) Check out their findings below for the most popular gender-neutral names, by state, in the past decade.
