28 Uncommon Baby Names You’ll Want for Your Future Kids


Naming children can be a challenging task. There’s a long list of considerations you have to think about. Give them a name that’s too common and they’ll be indistinguishable from all the Michaels and Emmas and Marys. Give them a name that tries too hard to be unique and they’ll have to spell their name to everyone for the rest of their life.

There is, of course, a middle ground for this: uncommon names. Uncommon names are neither obnoxiously trying hard to be unique nor frequently seen in their age groups. The beauty of these names is that they often have a cultural significance or a deep meaning behind them. So not only will your kid get a cool name that’s different from the rest, but the meaning behind it can be a conversation starter when they’re older!
