Unique Unisex Names
Funny thing is, my son, Logan has a unisex name and I think that his brother or sister will also have a unisex name. Which of these do you think fits best in our family? And which ones fit best in yours?
Name meanings are so fun to look into when naming a baby, though, isn't it? I think that a meaning of a name can really push you and your partner over the fence on a name if you're wavering between two great names. That's why I've included some important meanings with these favorites of mine. I hope you find a unique and wonderful unisex baby name here, just like I did, for your next baby!
Unisex Names With A Christian Meaning
I don't know about you, but when I find a name that I love and it coincidentally has a biblical meaning, my heart melts. God has given us so much and blessed me with this child. Giving him or her a name that glorifies God is so special.
The obvious meaning of the name is from the “east town”. But it can go much deeper than that! East is the direction of the sunrise, the symbol of a new day, and maybe most interestingly – biblically, the east is a symbol of sunlight which represented God's light and glory.
High, ascended, or My God. It doesn't get much better than this when naming a child for it's biblical meaning.

Although this name is not necessarily biblical, it can have a meaning related to your faith. The English meaning is “wise” and the Latin meaning is “prophet” or “man of profound wisdom”. This seriously makes me want to give my child this strong name.
Shiloh is a biblical place in Genesis 49:10 meaning “peace”. This name is also used as another name for the Messiah. I absolutely love this!
