I know 3 merlin's which I think is lovely and 2 bridgets which I also love grin

You can't move for tripping over a Felix here grin

I know a few Cosimas, which to me is an unusual name, which is what I think you mean, op?

I'm actually quite relieved. After worrying that naming our baby Felix would be met with a lot of weird looks it seems like he may be one of several in his class like his older brother who has a top 10 name. So it's not weird at all. smile

To be a pedant, if there is more than one person with a name it is not unique, as unique means there is only one! But I know what you mean, you mean names that parents gave a child thinking they would be the only one in the class and in fact they are not. Although I dont think your examples of Jasper and Felix are great as I know loads of those - fairly mainstream names in some parts.

Thingy - Felix is a great name, with a lovely meaning smile

I also know a few each of Felix, Hugo, Rufus, Oscar, who may have been named thinking the name was a bit different. I suppose they are rarer than James, William, Alexander, Harry but they certainly aren't unusual.
I know two Cormacs and two Tanis' which I think falls into your category of being surprised I know more than one.

Do you understand what unique means?

scottishmummy Sat 01-Feb-14 00:06:59

Unique,implies there not 3 or so of same name knocking about
Felix,jasper are unique in no way unique

An unusual (but not unique-so glad everyone has explained!) name we know 2 of is Maxim. Both in same class.

Contradiction in terms - if something is unique, it is the only one

Hmm, think those knowing Felix (Felixes)? & Jaspers may move in better circles than me! But do know 2 each of Casper, Dorothy, Esther and Stella. All straightforwardish but not common. 1 Ashling & 1 Aisling so not quite the same. Lily everywhere though, shame as I like that one!

LadyMetroland Sat 01-Feb-14 01:08:14

Atticus - I know of two!

I wish I could say I know two girls called Unique - unfortunately I only know one... (sorry, not helpful)

Babcia Sat 01-Feb-14 21:54:10

I think OP means "unique", rather than actually unique... hmm

A teacher friend of mine's first year 1 class had 3 Jadens and 2 Bladens. I used to have a cub scout pack with 3 Reubens, and all three of them were little shits darlings!

All the names here, Max, Oscar, Jasper etc are really popular and not at all unusual or unique!

Look outside the top 1000 for less used names.
