Old Fashioned Unisex Names?

I love older, more classic names and he likes unisex names. Are there any names that are both unisex and more old-fashioned? [name_f]Do[/name_f] like [name_u]Rowan[/name_u], but wanted more suggestions! TIA

Arden and [name_u]Adair[/name_u]! I love both of those so much.

Many old fashioned names that were used for boys and then shifted to the girls and so became unisex are considered now by a lot of people to be unusable for boys. I am not one of those, but it makes it’s harder to find names that bridge these two styles.

Ashley I think works in that it has declined in usage for girls now and so could be refreshing for a boy.

Evelyn is one of my favorites but probably too common for girls at the moment for most people to consider as unisex.

Billie and [name_u]Kit[/name_u] are my favourite vintage unisex names. [name_u]Wallis[/name_u] also comes to mind.
