Boy names for girls! The latest baby name trend you won’t regret using for your baby.
Once upon a time, there were boys names and there were girls names and they did not crossover (except in rare instances.)
These days more and more people are taking a gender neutral approach to naming their baby. Though… this trend does seem to be a little more for the girls. It’s becoming very trendy to take a typically masculine name for a baby girl and there’s plenty of celebrities in on it!
If the name’s cute, it’s cute, who needs to label it one way or the other, right?
So, here’s a list of typical boy names that work great for a little girl as well. (And perhaps one day, we’ll see the boys getting in on stealing names from the girls.)
