Uncommon Baby Names


Many expectant parents choose to look at uncommon baby names for their new baby. Today parents are looking for that perfect name to give to their child, something that is unique and one of a kind. They want a special name that will tell everyone that their child is a very important part of the family.

If you are trying to find a name that your child will not run into very often during life, try looking at some lists of uncommon baby names. These can be found in many books at your local bookstore or library. In addition, the internet has literally hundreds of thousands of these names available with the click of your mouse.

A lot of the parents are looking into names that have special meanings or that are rarely used. These are great but make sure they are easy to pronounce. Making sure your child can say and even write his own name is a very important fact to remember when choosing.

A good rule of thumb is to change the spelling a bit from what it would normally be. It doesn’t have to be anything too crazy though. Changing the I to a Y is something easy and can give you lots of uncommon baby names. Also, try looking into names that haven’t been very popular in a long time. Looking through historical names or names from the last century can give you inspiration.

If you are serious about your search for unique names, it isn’t that hard to find them. An internet search for a list of the top one hundred or top two hundred names should give you a good starting point. You can also look for names that were popular many years in the past. You can even go back centuries if those sort of names might interest you.

You may find that going back too far into the past will bring you names that you might not really want for your child. The thought of naming your child Bertha might make you cringe. You can always choose a name from the past and change the spelling around a bit. It is also possible to choose a name from a character of your favorite book. Uncommon baby names can also be found in your favorite movies. Just stay away from things like Batman and The Hulk, if you choose a character name. Sometimes you can get a bit TOO unique.
