The most popular unisex baby names in England and Wales have been revealed, following research conducted by Online Marketplace.

Noah, Charlie and James are the top three favourite unisex names in England and Wales. Other, less familar, unisex names include Arlo, Reggie and Dylan.

OnBuy.com conducted a survey with 1,466 British parents, to understand what they think about this fast-growing trend, whether they would choose a unisex name, and if they would purchase gender-neutral products for their child/children. The results revealed:

• 45% of British people would choose a gender-neutral name
• 27% of parents would choose a unisex name for their children just to follow trends
• Over 70% of Brits told by strangers that their children should wear more gender appropriate clothing
• 33% said they won’t buy unisex clothes because ‘there is a reason for gender’
