Parents today seem to be favoring the unusual names. Gone are the days when over half of the children born were given popular names. More and more parents are choosing unheard of foreign names, old fashioned names pulled out of the attic and dusted off, place names not commonly used as given names, and made up names. The upshot of this is that unusual names are not going to be the handicap they once were. Little boys named Zarek or Eamon are going to fit in, rather than stand out like a sore thumb in a sea of Johns, Jasons, and Davids. Instead of thinking that London is a weird name, people see it as a nice alternative to Dakota and Montana. Another upshot is that people who love a popular name can rest assured that their child will share it with less people than they would've 10 years ago. The down side is that unusual names are becoming more used and therefor they become less unusual. (I have personal experience in this, as I am hearing variations of my second child's name more often.) Parents of Martha and Edgar are starting to worry that the name will not be so unusual in a year or two, when ten years ago they wouldn't have to worry. Parents of Skylar and Riley are disappointed to find out that other parents chose those names as well. In short, it is becoming harder to find that unusual name. This site was created to help people in their search for an unusual name, whether they are looking just for a name not in the top 100 or 200, or if they are looking for a name that will (hopefully) be truly unique.

These three lists of names are the least unusual names on my page.
They are names that everyone is familiar with, but are not yet widely used by parents today.
They are definitely unusual, yet not "off the wall".

. . . . . .


These lists of names are more unusual, yet because of popular trends in naming,
they are close to some names that are popular today, and so are conforming in a way.
