Unique baby names that aren’t in the top 1000 – and that’s why we love them

It’s never a good feeling when your child ends up with a baby name that three other kids in their class have. You never want to hear “which one?” in reference to your kid, and neither do they. It’ll likely influence their self-confidence as well, which is never something we want to risk messing with.


That’s why we’ve come up with this list of super unique names that are not in the top 1000 most popular names right now. We promise they’re cute, but you’ll never have to worry about a hundred other kids with the same name.

While not all of them are up everyone’s alley, that’s kind of the point! We’ve got 40 traditionally feminine names, 40 traditionally masculine names, and 20 gender-neutral options. We know out of these 100 names you’ll be able to find a super special name you love, especially if unique names are your thing.
