  • I know 1. There are a lot of names that used to be considered boy names that have been taken over by the ladies (Ashley, Stacey, Kelly). I think it will continue with some of the more contemporary names also.

  • None, Shannon is a female name here...

    One thing I have learned though is that different parts of the country have different sexual assignments for different names. For example here in PA Dana is a woman's name, but I had a friend named Dana move out to CA and she got tons of flack for having a man's name... So I think some of it is regional... Dana, Shannon, Lindsey, Hunter... They are all TECHNICALLY unisex names, but depending on where you life they tend to just be one or another...
