There are many websites devoted to baby names, baby name lists, their meanings and their origins, countless resources for parents to gain inspiration for naming their babies. This list of 100 unusual baby names was put together by Essential Baby, the list gathered from two baby names websites BabyCenter.com’s ‘unusual baby names of 2013’ and Bounty.com’s list of ‘most extraordinary baby names‘. Both get their data from parents who register their baby’s name with the sites, and to make the list each name had to be given to at least three children.
This list shows influences coming from colours (Blue, Green and Ivory), nature (Hurricane, Flower and Feline), places (Egypt and Oceania) and some quite aspirational (Legend, Lovely and Bright).
Many parents, myself included, prefer more unusual names for their children (I think they’ll thank us later) and this is getting harder and harder to achieve. So, take a moment and see of you can gain some inspiration here. You can take a look at our previous post for the Top 100 Baby Names in USA or Top 100 Baby Names in Australia for more popular names.
