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.)


Weston and Easton are both traditional boys’ names, but Easton seems to be starting to tip over into the girls’ side after being chosen by Elizabeth Rohm for her daughter. Boys’ names starting with E seem to be particularly susceptible to gender-bending, as in Emerson, Emery and El(l)iot(t).
