The 36 Best Boy Names for Girls Because Gender Is a Construct

There needs to be a third section of that baby name book.

In nearly every baby name book, website or generator,  you’re urged to first choose between baby boy names or baby girl names, the implication being that whatever gender your child has been assigned will determine whether they prefer pink or blue (“bows or free throws,”as some gender reveals have called it) and that their name should evoke such characteristics.

For girl names, people want things that are sweet, cute, or beautiful, that look good written in curlicues. For boy names, people search for cool, strong, stately names that are worthy of leadership and awe. But we’re learning more and more than gender is arbitrary and your kid will develop a multifaceted personality whether they’re named Alexander or Alexandra. So, forget the outdated rules. Take a page from the other side of the baby book, and check out these traditionally “boy” names you’ll want to consider for your daughter.
