I'm looking for some unusual boys names. Any inspiration for me? Xx

The most unusual boys name I can think of is Felicity

Sorry. I've had wine.

stbxh wanted DS1 to be Fenris or Athelstan.

One of my DT's is Anatoly (Tolly for short).

Oh and I forgot about Thaddeus....

My husband still maintains that Seve is the coolest boy's name ever. I vetoed it immediately, but it's certainly unusual!

Seeing as we are in the era of anything goes, I would say a name like Nigel, Roger, Gaylord, Derek or Herman would be unusual.

Might not be what you are looking for, mind.

Zanzibar? I think it'd be a great name for a future explorer.
Jupiter - God of thunder and lightening.
Nebuchadnezzar.
Horace.
I met a toddler called Alan the other day. You don't see many Alans these days.

My 2yo likes the name Jumpy if we have a boy.

Gary is pretty rare these days too. Gary Prendergast Smith has a nice ring to it.

Brian. No one has been called Brian for decades.

Lorcan.

What a beautiful name.

Theodoric.

Or what about just plain ol' Derek... Dell for that matter?

VocationalGoat Wed 17-Feb-16 22:14:57

SmallBee I wonder if we know the same Alan. My friend's little boy, going on 3 is named Alan which is exactly the first thing I thought when I originally met them. You meet no kids named Alan nowadays.

My son is Alec. No one is named Alec.
I love that about his name. I love him actually. smile

grin. We are expecting triplets at the moment. Don't know what we're having at the moment, but DS (aged 8) has named them Burt, Derek and Mildred.

I was at school with an Athelstan. Stan for short. I thought it was weird at the time, but I like it now.
