Whether you are religious or not, Easter is a time of rebirth, rejuvenation, and spring. The easter egg is symbolic of new life and fertility. If you are expecting a baby around Easter, we’ve curated a list of gender-neutral names inspired by Easter one way or another.
These gender neutral sounding names can be re-appropriated for your baby regardless of gender as they are a combination of the masculine and feminine. The perks of giving your little one a gender-neutral baby name is to allow equal room for the baby to shape the name and the name to shape the baby.
Traditionally used as a surname and scarcely known as a first name. A brook is a small stream. Brooks is believed to have been derived dwelling near a stream. It can be traced to it’s Swedish roots, where the name “Bäckland” meaning “bäck” translates into brook. The name also has roots in the English, Gaelic, and Scottish through the possessive case of brook, i.e. of the brook. Topographic names can be gender-neutral.
Brooks has a casual and cheerful ring to it. Meaning-wise, a child named after a stream is fluid and flows like water.
