Baby Names

Finding the perfect baby name is fun but tough. These tips and ideas will help you narrow the list down to just the right name for your little one.

50 of the Most Unique Baby Names for Boys and Girls

If you are expecting a little one, you might be looking for a unique name for your baby — a name that hasn’t ever appeared on any “most popular” list, and one that your little one won’t share with a handful of others in school.

My husband and I always liked unique baby names for our girls. We have three girls — Adair Lynden, Ingrid Grey, and Margot Joan – each with a different, beautiful name.

I’ve done a bit of research for you all and came up with a list of 50 of the most unique baby names for boys and girls. Which ones are your favorite?

Top 10 Baby Names of 2014

I can’t believe that 2014 is coming to a close. As we round out the year, it’s time to see what names were the most popular of those little ones born this year. BabyCenter released their annual list of top 100 baby names for boys and girls this year based on the names submitted to their site. The top spots go to Sophia and Jackson — names that were on the top of the list last year, as well.

I always love checking out these lists to see if my little ones make it. There is so much thought put into your little one’s name that it’s interesting to see if other parents were as intrigued by a certain name as we were. Robert, which is Macks’ real first name, did not make the list this year.

Far, far below all the Sophias and Liams, Masons and Emilys is a treasure trove of rare names that are still fantastic baby name choices. The good news is you’ll practically guarantee you won’t find another baby with your little one’s name in your playgroup!

Here are 50 of the rarest baby names in 2013, according to the Social Security Administration’s top 1000 baby names. The criteria for this list: There had to be fewer than 500 births of each name, and over the 500th most popular names (so, closer to the bottom of the list).
