I am desperate to find an unusual name for our baby (sex unknown). We both like unusual names and as a teacher, I like the idea of a name that no one else in my child class will have.

DH and I simply can't agree. He loves names like Koda for a boy (I hate it) whereas I like names like Huxley, Auden etc. I loved Jenson but is becoming quite popular now.

Girls we simply can't find one we like. I love Paisley and he likes Peyton.

Please just throw names out there, open to anything unusual. I'm aware these probably aren't everyone's cup of tea when it comes to names

I’ve heard some unusual names this year such as Adora, Maple, Cova, Tamare and Hendrix!

I don't know many babies, but I know 2 Peytons, so it isn't very unusual.

I have a Huxley (good choice!) and a Quinlan.

Huckleberry is a new fave especially with the nn Huck.
Greyson is cute.

What do you think of Vada/Veda for a girl? I like it after the girl from the film 'My Girl' but DH just keeps on saying she will be called Darth Vader
