When it comes to celebrities and the names they give their babies, we’re already used to hearing the most outrageous names possible (Apple or Moxie Crimefighter, anyone?), but there’s a trend that’s catching on, and it’s catching on fast: unisex names that can sound cute, despite the pink or blue you have decorated all over your little oven muffin’s nursery.
Let’s take Jessica Simpson for example, here. She named her first born Maxwell Drew which a lot of people griped about, but to be honest, it’s actually a cute, Southern-gal name when you think about it. She’s also reportedly already picked out a name for her second child which is rumored to be Ace, even though she hasn’t confirmed whether she’s having a boy or a girl yet. While Ace of course sounds like something that would better fit a boy, I wouldn’t be surprised if that little baby comes out with an Etsy bow on his or her head right out of the womb!
If I were to get pregnant for a third time, I think I’d not only keep the sex of my baby a secret, but I would go with a unisex name, too, like for example Harper (Victoria Beckham’s daughter), Flynn (Miranda Kerr’s son) or even Lou (Heidi Klum’s daughter). Those names sound like they would go perfect for either sex, right? In fact, even Kourtney Kardashian’s son’s name Mason can work for girls, too (Kelsey Grammer has a daughter named Mason).
Check out our photo gallery of celebrities who have given their children unisex names and tell us which ones you think or a yay and which ones are a nay. Also, is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that there are a lot of Irish baby names out there that are unisex? Pretty clever of them, eh?
