Well, Lee was at one point quite popular for both boys and girls, but it dropped off the girls' top 1000 in 1992--but it's still on the boys' list.

Angel is popular for both boys and girls, but it's a great deal more popular for boys! It was at 43 for boys in 2003 and only 121 for girls. This is one to watch--it might go the way of Lee.

Marion hasn't been on the charts lately at all, but the most recent was for boys, at 999. It might come back someday.

Robin may yet make a comeback, since it's been waning in popularity since the 60s--plus, the boys' side had managed to hang on for quite a while. It'll be another to watch, I think.

Alex wasn't particularly threatened by the female hordes, but for the first time in over ten years, it only registered on the top 1000 boys' names.

Those are the best I've found. I'll keep my eyes peeled for other ones, though!
