1.You find yourself dealing with people who insist your name is either "definitely a boys' name" or "only a girls' name."
2.Chances are, having a unisex name makes it more likely to have a fellow Alex, Chris, or Sam at work, in school, or among your group of friends.
3.You know from experience that personalized novelty items are forged in hell.
4.You know it's that much harder to find a song with your name in it to sing to yourself.
5.You've been called both "sir" and "ma'am" in emails and phone calls often enough to barely even notice.
6.Sometimes you'll find people trying to "feminize" or "masculinize" your name, either through a cutesy nickname or different spelling.
7.You've known the exquisite pain (or mild annoyance, whatever) of being referred to as "She-Your Name" or "He-Your Name."
8.Since some unisex names have a sort of "ebb and flow" when it comes to whether they're more closely associated with male or females, sometimes you have to patiently deal with being the only guy in a sea of girls with your name, or vice-versa.
9....And you likely have one famous person with your name that's your go-to when pointing out that you're not "weird" for having the name you do.
10.If your name has alternate spellings -- like Tony or Toni -- you may find that people are forever getting it wrong.
11.Sometimes you'll deal with people giving you an impromptu history lesson on your name's masculine or feminine origins.
12....Or maybe giving impromptu history lessons on your name is something you've been guilty of doing yourself.
13.You'll find that some people make assumptions about how "girly" or "manly" you are based on your name.
14.If you date the opposite sex, you've sometimes (secretly?) fantasized about dating a guy or girl with your same name.
15....Or you've wondered what would happen if you married someone with your same name and then all your kids had your name too.
