I’ve been spending a lot of time looking at gender neutral baby names with my friend lately. She’s one of those amazing patient parents who chose to enjoy the mystery of her baby’s gender. Honestly, I couldn’t wait to find out my children’s gender so I could start picking out cute clothes, adorable nursery designs, and monogrammed gifts. Waiting to know your baby’s gender is an amazing experience, though. My friend pointed out that she can still get those embroidered bibs and all those monogrammed nursery decorations thanks to these most popular gender neutral baby names.
