There’s definitely something to be said for classic old-fashioned baby names, but lately we’re kinda loving the new-school crop of gender-neutral names that are totally in style.
Whether you’re keeping your baby’s sex a surprise for their big debut or are just into the idea of giving your child a name that is neither strictly masculine or strictly feminine, there’s at least a handful of gender-neutral names that you’re bound to love.
Other famous parents opted for unisex middle names. Maggie Gyllenhaal and Bruce Willis named baby girls Gloria Ray and Mabel Ray, while. A.J. McLean and Jessica Capshaw named their daughters Ava Jaymes and Poppy James.
Open your mind and consider these surprising gender-neutral names for baby boys and girls alike. Use them as first names, middle names or both.
