37 Girl Baby Names That Were Originally Used For Boys

Baby naming customs are fascinating, and baby names are also subject to trends (for example, if you meet a Jennifer, she was probably born in the ’70s or ’80s). And sometimes, what many deem as a male name will migrate over and become primarily a female name. This has happened quite often throughout history (in fact, if you read or watch Gone With The Wind, a main male character is named Ashley). These “girl” baby names, complied by NameBerry, started off as 100% all boy but are now given to more girls than boys. Also, check out some men and characters who have bore the names — even in modern times.
