Jessica Simpson warned America that she and fiance Eric Johnson had selected a name for her baby girl and that it wasn’t bizarre, but it was going to raise a few eyebrows. Her daughter’s name is Maxwell Drew Johnson. Normally you’d picture a little boy with a name like that, but in this case, a little girl will answer to that name.

However, many female celebrities have names that you’d associate with a male, or a name that is unisex. Many women have names such as Taylor, Skylar, Kyle, Tyler, Drew, Reese, Pat, Jordan or names similar, and they are doing just fine.

As a matter of fact, many of them are in some of your favorite movies, or they might even be one of your favorite singers. I’ve compiled a list of celebrity names that are male sounding or unisex names, but they actually belong to a female.

Cameron Diaz – Actress

Chris Evert – Professional tennis player

Drew Barrymore – Actress

Glenn Close – Actress

Hayden Panitierre – Actress

Jami Gertz – Actress

James King – Actress

Jeri Ryan – Actress

Jordin Sparks – Singer/Actress

Peyton List – Actress

Reese Witherspoon – Actress

Scottie Thompson – Actress

Sean Young – Actress

Shawn Johnson – Olympic Gold Medal Gymnast

Taylor Swift – Singer/Actress

These ladies have all made a huge name for themselves, built empires, and have maintained successful careers. Jessica Simpson herself is close to a billionaire thanks largely to her brand of shoes and fragrances. So I think little Maxwell will be o.k. even if she never has the opportunity to work, momma will be able to take care of her for a long, long while.

What are some unusual names you’ve heard that made you do a double take when you saw who they belonged to?
