For those who've long felt pigeonholed by the idea that there are boy names strictly for boys and girl names exclusively for girls, why not follow the recent baby-naming trend? Many parents are opting to give their baby girls a traditional boy's name, and we're sure the amount of female Noahs, Flynns, and Garretts will only continue to rise. It's a tactic that has long had a place in Hollywood. Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon, Hayden Panettiere, Parker Posey, Taylor Swift, Cameron Diaz . . . their names are all borrowed from the boys.
Curious what other boy names are being recast for the opposite sex? Read on. You might even be surprised to see some names - like Kelly or Dana, for instance - that have so long been coopted by women, you forgot they were ever boys' names to begin with.
