Just because a baby name is thought to be for a particular gender does not mean that an expectant parent can't use it for the opposite! In fact, who the heck made it a rule to only use "boy" names for sons and "girl" names for daughters? That's so dated and, truthfully, a little uncool. The latest trend in baby names is a push for names that work for both boys and girls, so why not consider a "girl" name for a future son?
