Trend alert! Even MORE gender-neutral baby names that are totally 2017

We just can't help ourselves. 

First it was Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, who chose the unisex name, Wyatt, meaning 'brave at war' for their baby girl.

Then it was revealed that Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively followed suit, choosing James, traditionally a boy's name, for their first daughter  - but opted for a more girly, Ines, for their second.

Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha has also gave her little girl a traditionally male middle name. Ioni James Conran. Singer Robbie Williams called his little girl Teddy and the list goes on....


There was many a raised eyebrow when Kim Kardashian West and hubby Kanye chose the name North for their first child and then almost broke the internet when they called their son, Saint, but Hollywood is packed with gender-neutral and unisex name inspiration.

Stuntman Johnny Knoxville is dad to daughters Madison and Arlo, Mad Men star Kevin Rahm welcomed Hunter and Dax Shepherd and Kristen Bell called their little girl Lincoln. Jessica Simpson's eldest child, a girl, is called Maxwell, while Frasier star Kelsey Grammer is dad to sisters Mason and Spencer.

Sports illustrated model Robyn Lawley, who gave birth to baby Ripley, is taking the trend one step further. She told Brands Exclusive magazine that she'll be choosing 'gender neutral toys and clothes' for her daughter.


"In all honesty," she added. "I think we separate the genders too greatly by the toys and hobbies."
