Jordan is perhaps one of the few true gender neutral names. It’s popularity for boys and girls has risen and fallen together over the last four decades.

While Jordan hit its popularity peak in the 1990’s (#26 for boys and #40 for girls in 1997), it remains a steady favorite. It currently sits at #88 for boys; and while it may seem to have dropped more for girls at #425, the feminized spelling Jordyn actually outranks the traditional spelling (#209).

I really enjoyed putting together this list of middle names for Jordan. The softness of ‘Jo’ and the ending ‘n’ make so many middle names work well with Jordan — the full names sound smooth and substantial.

Jordan means “to flow down” in Hebrew and is most known for it’s connection to the Jordan River in Israel.

Jordan is considered a biblical name, with Jesus being baptized in the Jordan River. Crusaders would also bring back river water to baptize their children; some of these children were given the name Jordan in honor of the baptism.

Jordan was a hot unisex name at the end of the millennium, hitting its peak in 1997. The name’s popularity has mostly trended together for both boys and girls.

In recent years, the name’s popularity has declined some for both genders. However, the traditional spelling of Jordan has had a faster fall for girls. Instead, girl parents today are favoring a feminized spelling of Jordyn.

Interestingly, feminized Jordyn’s ranking has remained mostly steady since it came on the scene in the early 1990’s. While classically-spelled Jordan has dropped 383 spots from its peak, Jordyn has constantly landed in the mid-100’s-200’s range.
