Gender-Neutral Baby Names That Are Just a Wee Bit Out of the Box
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.
Celebrities have embraced unique gender-neutral names in a big way. From Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis' daughter Wyatt to Leighton Meester and Adam Brody's daughter Arlo, it's clear crossing the gender aisle is a bona fide trend.
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.
