Gender Neutral Baby Names

We know that each family is unique, and when it comes to naming our little ones, this is no exception. Some of us have had baby names chosen for years, while others wait to meet their newborn’s tiny face before choosing. Names may hold a special meaning to us, they may be known as traditional or considered to be modern. We take inspiration from everywhere, from the cities we have travelled to, the stars that keep us shining, to those who have loved us along the way. Gender neutral names are nothing new (Hello, Jesse) but they are trending among parents. We have collected some examples here:


There are some names every generation heard during their class roll call; some names that have been given to either gender, names like:

  • Adrian
  • Blake
  • Bobbie
  • Drew
  • Frankie
  • Hayden
  • Jesse/Jessie
  • Jordan
  • Kerry
  • Kelly

Found in nature

Peace, nourishment, guidance, and nature offer us many benefits, such as inspiration in naming our newest family additions. Some examples are:

  • Ash
  • Brook
  • Cedar
  • Cove
  • Finch
  • Gale
  • Hickory
  • Ocean
  • Skylar
  • Vesper

Look to the stars

We looked to the stars as our first storytellers, so it makes sense that we seek their light when it comes to naming a new chapter. Examples of celestial inspired baby names are:

  • Ara
  • Callisto
  • Dione
  • Janus
  • Jupiter
  • Lo
  • Nix
  • Nova
  • Orion
  • Sol

Last names turned first names

Whether it is to honor family, pay homage to someone we look up to, or put a modern twist on an old name, parents have been looking to surnames as first names, such as:

  • Avery
  • Bailey
  • Ellis
  • Finley
  • Kennedy
  • Lennon
  • Quinn
  • Sawyer
  • Spencer
  • Taylor
