Waiting until birth to find out the gender of your baby makes for a fantastic surprise – but it also means you have to come up with double the names.
Or does it?
Most parents will make a list of boys’ names and another for girls’ names. But there’s another option: make one list of gender-neutral baby names and pick your favourite.
So what is a gender-neutral name? A gender-neutral or unisex name is one that has been given to babies over the years regardless of their gender.
Not surprisingly, gender-neutral names typically started as being male or female-specific, but as an article in Bustle says, “Then, as people start to get more daring and creative with how they name their offspring, these monikers begin to drift away from the gender binary, becoming not’ names for boys’ or ‘names for girls,’ but just simply, ‘names.'”
We think this is pretty great.
So to get your list started, here are some of our favourite gender-neutral baby names.
