These names have beautiful meanings and can be used to name either a girl or boy.

For the longest time Asian names have stayed largely the same. Often, the names are derived from temples or “si fu” masters who bestow the name upon an unborn child. But modern parents in Asia nowadays are more interested in giving their children names that they have picked out on their own, such as Asian gender neutral names.
