anyone no any unique baby names ? Literally names youv hardly heard (gets abit annoying when ppl post common names Iv heard lots) boy and girl grin

Unique and hardly heard is a contradiction in terms. Unique would have to be never heard of.

Well I think people get what I mean...

From my dd's class, there are children with names I have never heard of including:

Cordiana (I love this)

I presume some of it is cultural - so these names might be normal to people who grew up in the place these parents are from. I am Irish and there are names (including my daughter's) which would be unique to non-Irish people but most Irish people, particularly those from a particular area, would know one or two with the name (e.g. Nessan, Ademar, Garvan etc)

Was just posting on the fairy names thread that I was absolutely set on calling DD2 Pebbles when preg.

Husband point blank refused, but subsequently admitted it would have been perfect for her now she has a personality. Not a name I've really heard (except from the obvious)

A boy in my Reception class years ago was called Name - is that really common or not? grin

Pebbles is cute but my partner wouldn't let me either! I like Luna for a girl and I no it's not that unusual but rocky I quite like for a boy. Name well that kinda speaks for itself blush

Watermelondrea - that yoouneek enough?

An old anglo saxon name like Ethelthryth is genuinely rare but somehow I don't think that's quite what you want.

I know an adult Nilufahr, bit older than me probably mid 30's, goes by Nellie. Hates her given name with a passion.

Juna... understated and unique without being silly.

TonySopranosVest Sun 03-Apr-16 19:08:35

Falange, Claret, Mustard, younicorne, Violence, Steam.

Sometimesithinkimbonkers Sun 03-Apr-16 19:28:50

Our daughter is Cleo .... Not many more!!!!!

RaisingSteam Sun 03-Apr-16 20:03:03

Rare names: go back a generation or two. Peter and Jane. Philip and Sheila. Guaranteed only ones in the class. IKWYM about Jack, Harry, Chloe etc.

Strictly to be unique you have to invent one or maybe a fictional name like Katniss (probably in the top 50 already)

Falange, Claret, Mustard, younicorne, Violence, Steam.


But seriously how bloody cruel to name a child any of those.

EnglishFern Sun 03-Apr-16 21:33:13

Really unique?

Like, really really unique?


Go for it! The worlds your lobster.

Flop Jones, the doctor will see you now.

EnglishFern Sun 03-Apr-16 21:51:35

I think it really needs a longer surname.

Flop MacDonald
