This or that unisex names -- Girls?

Okay, so if you were forced (absolutely forced) to name a GIRL these unisex names, which would you choose?

Just because these names were chosen for this game does not mean I like them. It's just a game, keep your personal rants to yourself.

By the way, I also don't care if you're a name nazi that believes all names are one gender, not unisex. This is not a place for you to rant your little heads off, this is a game. But I would be extremely pleased if you actually decided to join this game, because, though I know you hate unisex names, I would LOVE to know which you hate the least. :)

Aidan or Allister?

Bradley or Bryce?

Blaise, Blair, or Blake?

Collin or Channing?

Clark or Cody?

Darian or Dylan?

Evan or Everett?

Emerson or Elliot?

Farley or Falon?

Griffin or Grayson?

Harley or Hadley?

Ian or Indie (…)?

Jasper or Jonah?

Kayden or Keegan?

Logan or Laramie (rhymes with Jeremy)?

Mason or Marley?

Murphy or Merrit?

Noah or Navy?

Owen or Olsen?

Presley or Palmer?

Quinn or Quinlan?

Remy or River?

Saxon or Stevie?

Spencer or Sawyer?

Tristan or Tatum?

Vijay (like the golf player) or Vesper (though this isn’t really masculine…)?

Wiley or Whitley?

York or Yardley?

Zephyr or Zavery (rhymes with Avery)

Do NOT answer if you're just going to complain also, this is really just for fun, you don't have to take it too personally or seriously. :) If you really don't want to choose, just pick the one you hate the least. This is designed to make you cringe at some points, there isn't supposed to be an obvious "I-love-this-name" answer. The majority of the time, you're going to have to choose a name you severely dislike, even though it is quite sickening. Though, some will be easier than others. :) Just enjoy, choose, and you're absolutely welcome to tell me that you severely dislike both, but still choose the one you hate the least.

**Best answer will most likely be given to someone who explains their answer

Update:

Yes, some of these aren't "unisex" names exactly, but they're all names that I've witnessed on girls (I know sisters named Brice and Owen, I DO know a female Jasper...yet I still can't stand it on a girl...)

So, the point isn't if they're masculine or feminine...they've been used on girls, unfortunately, and it's really just a game. You can squirm, though.

Update 2:

Vijay pretty much sounds like the initials. "V.J.". I thought it was just initials for the longest time...

Zephyr is "ZEF-er".

    Allister - Aiden is too much of a trendy boy name along with several other boy names ending in the "en" sound. At least I could use the nickname Allie.

    Bryce - Not sure why - just seems a bit more feminine to me than Bradley.

    Blair - I actually like this name for a girl.

    Channing - I know there's an actor named Channing, but I still don't find it to be very masculine, especially compared to Collin.

    Cody - I feel the 'y' ending can make it seem more feminine.

    Dylan - I used to love Dylan for a boy, but I've heard of a few little girls being named this, which destroyed my love for it for a boy. So since I see it as a less masculine name now, I feel that Darian is the more masculine name.

    Evan - The nickname Evie could be used, which I like. I grew up with a guy named Everett so I really can't see it being used on a girl at all. Plus, the nickname Rhett reminds me of Rhett Butler.

    Elliot - Reminds me of scrubs. I used to hate the idea of this name being used on a girl, but I'm warming up to it.

    Falon - Farley reminds me of Chris Farley... which also reminds me of "Fart." Mature, I know.

    Grayson - I know some people insist the "son" part makes it definitively masculine, but to me, I can't imagine the names Madison or Addison on a boy. This one is a little different since the color gray makes me think of a male, but it's still a little bit of a smoother sound than Griffin. The nicknames Griff or Finn are both so masculine. I also immediately think of Peter Griffin so I can't possibly imagine an adorable little girl!

    Hadley - Both of these are somewhat cute for a girl since they both end in the 'y' sound, but I went with Hadley b/c it doesn't remind me of a motorcycle. :)

    Indie - Again, the 'y' ending makes it more feminine. It also reminds me of India, which is a definitive girl name that I think is cute and different.

    Jasper - I feel that this could be feminine since Jasper is a sort of jewel, which is usually more associated with femininity.

    Keegan - I just can't stand Kayden as a name in general so I went with Keegan.

    Logan - The first Logan I ever met was a girl my age, so I think of it as somewhat feminine.

    Marley - I grew up with a girl named this so I consider it feminine.

    Merrit - Mason just seemed way too masculine. Merrit somewhat reminds me of Meredith, Meryl, even Marilyn.

    Noah - When it's spelled Noa, it's actually a Hebrew name meaning "Motion" and a Japanese name meaning "From love."

    Olsen - This was a tough one. I chose Olsen b/c Owen just seems TOO much of a definitively "boy name" to me.

    Presley - The 'y' ending makes it the more feminine choice for me.

    Quinn - This has always felt more feminine to me; probably b/c the only Quinn I was ever aware of was Daria's sister (the MTV cartoon).

    Remy - I think this is rather cute for a girl. River is a little too hippie-ish for my personal taste.

    Stevie - That's my nickname (for Stephanie)! Some close friends and family call me that, and I like it. It's different from the boring "Steph" nickname we all get. I feel it's feminine (Stevie Nicks, anyone?) and spunky. Saxon reminds me of saxophone or the "creative" way people choose to spell Jackson/Jaxon.

    Spencer - It just feels a bit more feminine to me whereas Sawyer reminds me of the tool or Tom Sawyer. Both are very rustic and masculine.

    Tatum - This one was tough. Tristan rhymes with Kristin, which is feminine and you could always use the nickname Trista; however, I've always known Tatum as a girl's name while Tristan is quite popular on boys.

    Vijay - I actually grew up with a girl who's initials were V.J. and that's what we called her, so of course I'm going to think this is the more feminine one to me. Vesper sounds harsh and reminds me of a vespa!

    Whitley - Well, it's close enough to Whitney, and "Whit" could still be used as a nickname. Wiley just makes me think of Wiley Coyote!

    York - I'm not sure either I could really work with, but this one I could work with more than Yardley b/c it doesn't give me the urge to mow my lawn. :)

    Zavery - This sounds more feminine to me. Zephyr is just too harsh of a name; there's absolutely no softness to it.

    That was fun and surprisingly challenging!
