There are a number of reasons to be thinking about gender neutral names, such as:
- Not wanting to apply gender labels to your child the moment they come out of the womb
- Not knowing the gender of your baby
- Wanting to explore the full range of naming options (including gender neutral ones)
Many people also choose to use unisex or gender-neutral names in adulthood to better fit their sense of self. With the rise of nonbinary celebrities, such as Jonathan Van Ness, Alok Vaid-Menon, Sam Smith, and Bex Taylor-Klaus, this is becoming increasingly common.
Indeed, gender-neutral baby names are surging, as more and more parents consider the possibility of gender fluidity in their children and attempt to break down gender stereotypes.
I obviously love gender-neutral names too, as I have one myself.
