Get ready to welcome a new generation of boys with traditionally feminine names – it’s tipped to be THE baby name trend for 2024! The naming gurus at BabyCentre are predicting a shakeup in the gender norms of naming, forecasting a surge in boys’ names that have traditionally been associated with girls. Unisex names like Alex, Charlie, Jamie, and Jordan have been a big hit in the name game for a while now, but we’re set to witness a fresh twist.

The celeb world is already on board with this trend. Remember 2023, when Chrissy Teigen and John Legend introduced us to their son, Wren, or when Rihanna and A$AP Rocky revealed their boy’s striking name, Riot Rose?

BabyCentre predicts names like Hazel, Fern, Cleo, June, and Willow will soon be playground calls for boys. The name Sage saw a rise in popularity for boys in 2023, and they’re betting Willow will be the new sensation for 2024. Gender norms? They’re so last year!
