Considerations For Choosing A Gender-Neutral Name
If choosing a gender-neutral name is tough, remember that baby’s middle name could be more gender-specific. Think about nicknames. A gender-neutral first name could be modified with a nickname that’s more girly or boyish, and then your child can choose what he prefers to use as he grows.
