What 'unique' boys names do you like?

Due in a few weeks and stuck for boys' names. We do not want a really popular name.

We've a few on our shortlist, but I'm still on the lookout for The One! So, do you know any little boys with relatively unique names? Or even just names you think are really nice. And I don't mean crazy, bizarre names... Just not any that are too popular. Thanks.

Loving lots of those names, thanks. A couple of them are actually on our list, but for whatever reason, we're not sure.

Keep 'em coming if you can. Feel like I'm running out of time.

Although not unusual as such , I have a teddy. He's not Edward or anything like that - teddy on his birth certificate. He is usually known as ted.

I was surprised to see this pop up because I had forgotten I had posted it back in 2013.

We named him Milo. It's not at all popular in Ireland where I live and in the year he was born, there were only just over 30 Milos registered. He loves his name and it suits him to a tee.

Currently 2 weeks away from welcoming Number 2 into the world. Likewise, we don't want a name that's too popular. We're considering Wesley (called Wes), Gabriel or Sebastian (but I fear it's getting too popular). I love Rémy, but my dh says no!

5madthings Wed 11-Nov-15 22:03:45

We had remy on our list,

We have Theodore, Oscar reuben, Dylan lucas and rudi arlo. Then dd Merryn. Expecting number 6, if it's a boy it will be emmett or cassius I think.

I know a Sebastian and a Gabriel bur no Wesley though I did go to school with a Wesley.

5madthings Wed 11-Nov-15 22:04:31

Milo was on my list Btw but dh said no because of the tweenies.

Notbread Wed 11-Nov-15 22:07:29

DS is called Wesley. We get lots of positive comments. It's uncommon but not 'weird'.

TattieHowkerz Thu 12-Nov-15 06:32:53

I was about to suggest Wesley!
Also John.

GloriaHotcakes Thu 12-Nov-15 06:38:14

Thanks for coming back to update us OP.

Rudi and Milo sounds good.

DS1 is Marvin. Certainly not weird or made-up, yet quite unusual in RL.
I also love Hadrian very much.
