    Red face Girls names for boys

    Whatever our opinion on the matter, we all know that boys names for girls are trendy. But how about the reverse? If a girl can be named Lincoln or Elliot, why can't a boy be Lois or Isabel?

    I think a lot of girls names could work fabulously for boys. If Tanner, why not Tanith? If Xavier, why not Xanthe? If Owen, why not Opal? If Jonathan, why not Jonquil? If Max, why not May?

    Some more of my favorite gender-swapped names:

    Celeste *
    Fern
    Esme
    Aquila
    Romy *
    Averil
    Seren *
    Evadne
    Leonie (Leo is getting popular)
    Beryl *
    Cate (just a letter off from Cade)
    Hester
    Carly *
    Ingrid
    Willow *
    Paz
    Aisling
    Jolie (instead of just Joel)
    Zoe *
    Adele
    Jade *
    Alison ('son' is right there in the name!)
    Eden *
    Arden*
    Afton
    Maris
    Scarlet *
    Lux
    Macy (a great alternative to Mason!)
    Tamar
    Gala
    Ivy (one of my favorites)
    Saga *
    Clover
    Belle (boys are beautiful too, right?)
    Jane (a very tough male character on 'Firefly' wore this name handsomely)
    Hazel
    Blythe *
    Clio *
    Julie (could be a nn for the popular Julian)
    Bridget
    Fay *
    Serenity
    Beth *
    Mallory *
    Brynn (like a modern, stripped-down Brian)
    Iris
    April *
    Piper (LOVE this for a boy)
    Olive
    Charity (virtue names, like nature names, should be gender-neutral, right?)
    Chastity (^^)
    Tess *
    Sigourney *
    Isis
    Shirley
    Joy (I would love to see this on a boy!)
    Kimberly
    Helen
    Ellen
    Sloane *
    Greer *
    Jennifer (dated for girls, fresh for boys)
