Celebrity couple give their baby daughter a 'traditional' boys name

But trend of neutral gender baby names is on the rise

What do you think about when you hear the baby name ‘James’?

It’s a traditional name that’s mainly associated with boys, right?

Not if you’re celebrity parents Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively that have announced that they have called their baby DAUGHTER, James.

Proud daddy Ryan confirmed the moniker earlier this month after joking the pair had decided on the name ‘Butternut Summersquash’.

While it may not seem a typical girls name but we have heard of other girls being given this.

In fact there are a range of gender neutral baby names that are really making waves in both the mainstream and celebrity baby name world.

Here’s just a few of our faves.
