Any ideas on unique boys names? Not weird ones, nice strong names that aren't that common but not 'way out there'!! lol

Is Lol (nn for Laurence?) the name you're asking us to comment on?

If so, it's OK.

For unique, you'd need to create a name.

Less common names: Nigel, Ian, Jeremy, Roy, Simon, Neil, Roderick, Kevin, Colin?

David.
How many kids do you know called David?
I've never come across one.
Robert?
Paul? Phillip?
Think of who you went to school with!

Ironically it appears to me that the more 'unique' one tries to be the more likely it is to chose the most popular names in the area.

I have only taught 2 Johns in 20 years. No Nicholas or Andrews.

In our fairly small toddler acquaintance I know a Caleb, and I also know a young teenage girl called Cory.

I have an Anatoly. He was nearly Victor or Ivan.
He is Tolly for short.
