Emerging Trend of “Post Gender” Baby Naming

484969504_455d871708_mOver the past few decades, the artificial color line dividing babies into blue and pink camps has gradually eroded in US society. This development is clearly evident in the names parents have been increasingly selecting for their newborns. According to Pamela Redmond Satran, the founder of Nameberry, one of the world’s leading onomastic websites, one of the hottest trends for 2016 is “post gender” naming (i.e. not constricting the selection of a baby’s name on rigid constructions of what is masculine or feminine). The New York Times recently covered this developing trend.
