1. Charley- or Charlie, sometimes short for Charles or Charlotte but works just as well the short way.

2. Ray- Originally short for Raymond (for a boy) this neutral name is inspired by the bad-ass Star Wars heroine from The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

3. Finn- Short, sweet and rising in popularity.

4. James- If Blake Lively can call her little gal James, so can you.

10. Parker- a medieval name, meaning gamekeeper that works well for any gender.

11. Noah- Or Noa. We've even heard of Noa-Belle for a lil' girl- how cute!

12. Quinn- Not just a surname, we took inspo from Glee's gorgeous cheerleading character.
