Name. Color. Graphics. These are the most visible clues on birth announcement cards that indicate boy baby or girl baby. Of course this matters only in the rare instance you hadn’t heard already!
The rising popularity of gender-neutral names and modern birth announcement designs mean your baby’s birth announcement card could raise more questions than it answers. Have some fun if you want to keep the recipients of your baby’s birth announcement cards guessing.
How to Keep Birth Announcement Cards Gender Neutral
If you prefer not to impose presumptuous gender-identity characteristics on your newborn, follow this formula when you’re shopping for your custom birth announcements:

Choose one in the Top 3, or, for the sake of less confusion later on in school, go for a less popular one from among the Bottom 3:
|TOP 3||BOTTOM 3|
|1. Harper||1. Cameron|
|2. Quinn||2. Teagan|
|3. Rowan||3. River|

On the plus side, this strategy could prompt a call or two from someone you haven’t spoken to in a while. On the other hand, you might not want to consider this approach if you don’t want any confusion when it comes to a baby gift.
