There’s a rise in gender-neutral names for children—especially among celebrities. I think it’s a good thing: Gender and sexuality are fluid for so many people, so it only makes sense that more parents consider a unisex name for their kids. A name can put someone in a box just as much as an all-blue room or closet full of frilly pink dresses. And aren’t we past that? Aren’t we ready for the next generation to decide who they are without the pressure of a gendered name? I’m telling you: androgynous names are where it’s at.
And celebrities have given their kids some beautiful ones—like Lincoln, Bingham, and, yes, Chicago. In fact, the Kardashian-Jenners are particularly great at giving their children gender-neutral names: North, Saint, Psalm, etc. Kim and the gang are really onto something.
As are the stars in this gallery, below, whose children all have gender-neutral names.
