International Women's Day celebrates strong women throughout history who have fought for social, economic and political equality for women around the world. It acknowledges the work done by women of the past and points out the inequalities still present in the system, particularly for women of color and those living in poverty. Give your child a leg up on the importance of activism with a baby name that makes a statement, inspired by these female leaders.
Though we haven't featured any male champions of feminist rights — it is International Women's Day, after all — you can draw inspiration from many of the names above. We name baby girls after men all the time, so why not try the reverse? Start with the surnames: Using last names as first names has been a major trend in baby names over the past 20 years. Try out Stanton or Spence to set your son on the right path to pursuing gender equality.
