How did Olivia Pope’s dastardly dad make it this far up the list? By having the name Rowan, which is unisex with a Gaelic background. “Scandal” fans may be tempted to avoid giving the name to their sweet newborn, but there’s no need to shun it: Rowan, an anglicized form of an Irish surname, is lovely and modern and easy to pronounce. More popular for boys than for girls, Rowan is the name of a mountain ash tree that produces white flowers and red berries (that explains “little redhead”). When her first daughter was born in 2003, actress Brooke Shields named her Rowan, who fittingly has red hair.
