Violet, on its own, is an entirely feminine and delicate name. It's a flower, color, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's baby name, and popular standalone girls' name.

James, on the other hand, fits perfectly with one of the latest and biggest celebrity baby name trends. Androgynous baby names are all the rage. It all started when Jessica Simpson named her first child, a daughter, Maxwell (Maxi for short). Then Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis named their daughter Wyatt, taking yet another long-standing boys' name and adapting it to their baby girl.
