Androgynous baby names are VERY popular amongst modern parents; we've seen celebrity couples opting for unisex monikers when naming their precious little ones.
Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively (whose daughter is called James), Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher (whose daughter is named Wyatt) and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West (whose kids are called North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm) are all examples of celebrity babies with unisex names.
And, of course, there's a fair few fictional kids with androgynous names, these days, too. From Robin in How I Met Your Mother to Spencer in Pretty Little Liars, seriously, unisex names are the way forward. Though, we won't judge if you want to go for a classic Thomas or Elizabeth - each to their own, eh?
