Quincy is the most popular gender-neutral baby name in the UK (although we’ve never met one)

Yes, Quincy

Gender-neutral baby names are trending in a big way, with celebrity babies paving the way for us all.

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively foresaw the trend years ago, naming their daughter James, and after the initial shock died down, gender neutral monikers have been all the rage ever since.

The past year alone has seen an unprecedented amount of gender-neutral names grace the headlines, from Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen calling their daughter Briar to Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder naming their baby girl Bodhi Soleil.

Honourable mentions go to Zoe Saldana for naming her son Zen, Megan Fox for calling her baby boy Journey River, Tess Holiday for opting for the moniker Bowie Juniper and Alanis Morissette for choosing the name Onyx Solace for her daughter.
