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.

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.

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.

If you want a "unique" name in his class then you'll need to look at names from the 60s and 70s. How about Kevin, Simon, Mark, Gary etc? grin

James isn't very rare round where I live. Quite the opposite. There's 4 of them just in the toddler room at DS's nursery, and it's not a big nursery.

I know a Barnaby, Seth, Caleb, Reuben, Sebastian, Fraser.
