Celebrity Baby Names: Boys’ names for girls

Not that this is something completely new.  After all, way back when, Diane Keaton named her daughter Dexter Dean, Kelsey Grammer had girls called Spencer and Mason, and Miley Cyrus’s parents named their next daughter Noah.  But lately the trend of celebrities giving their female offspring completely male— not unisex— names has been wildly escalating.  Here are some of the most extreme gender-benders. (And if you haven’t already, be sure to check out our great new graphic showing just where every unisex name stands on the boy-girl spectrum.)


After getting so much flak for naming your son Pilot Inspektor—even if you offered some reasonable reference to some Grandaddy song-- you would think you’d pick a nice, simple girly name like Charlotte or Claire for your daughter. But then you wouldn’t be Jason Lee. Casper Lee may be one of the only girls bearing that name.
