Etienne

[ey-TYEN]

This name (meaning "crown") is the French form of Stephen - so basically, the French Steve. But given its "-enne" ending, we think it could easily be a unisex name, as long as you don't live in an area with a huge population of French people who'll give you side-eye because your daughter's name is Steve.
