I have three beautiful boys with special names: Cullan - Gaelic, meaning Spirit of God and Handsome, Gavin - Welsh, a fierce and strong warrior, and Keegan - Gaelic for Hugh, my father-in-law who passed away. They are unique and yet go perfectly with our Irish last name. And they are the only ones in their school with them.

It's obvious from all the replies here that I am the odd one out, but personally I find alot of the odd spellings of names to be quite pretentious. I appreciate that everyone wants their child to be unique and to stand out in the crowd, but I would much rather their personalities did this for them rather than their badly spelled name. It's interesting that you can pretty much guess when people were born by their names, for instance, during the 90s there was a propensity to use alot of older, more traditional names such as Arthur, Charlie, George, Stanley etc. The early 2000s saw an uprising in alot of biblical names, and now it appears that people are using whatever verb/noun/placename they like as a name. Makes for an interesting attendance at school :)

I mainly decided on unique names because our last name was one syllable, Luck and it sounded blunt when you say it so I wanted longer and more creative first names. Their middle names are biblical though. Donathon Elijah, Maxton Jeremiah and Quinian Isaiah. Being unique and creative is one thing but I think that traditional names need to remain spelled the way people expect them to be spelled. Never a fan of trendy names at all. I was born in the early 70s but Megan did not become popular till the 80s.

I have had 3 boys, unfortunately my first son was stillborn fullterm due to me contracting eclampsia. He was called Raven and would have been 10 years old in May. I have since had 2 more sons Blaze who is 9 years old and Diezel who is 7 years old. Blazes Middle name is Kaiden and Diezels is Raven after his brother. I still love their names to this day, to the point that I was really upset when a so called old friend called her son after Raven his name was precious to me, for that reason I wanted his name to remain un common as I told her prior to her son being born.

I hadnt heard of any boys being called Blaze until recently, there are a few girls with his name though. I have never heard of another boy being called Diezel.

I think unusual names have in themselves become quite common in recent years. What I have found since naming my boys is that unusual names are not always a good idea. My son Diezel is Autistic and struggles to make friends, his behaviour can at times be difficult to manage and his unusual name ensures that he is always remembered and not always for good reasons. He hates his name lately, I think other children have been teasing him. He has been quite angrily asking me why I named him after petrol! Blaze has also at times said he doesnt like his name and would like to be called a normal name.

In hindsight, although I love their names maybe for them a less unusual name would have made them happier? Maybe some children dont want to stand out from the crowd.

My best friend calls our son Maximus but his real name is Maxton. For the longest time, her husband thought his name was Maximus. That is a great name Maximus Mateo! He will go far and do great things I am sure. Our Max is a handful. We call him Monkey Max cause he climbs on practically everything he is allowed to.

We loved DTBH too! So our son is Leland Frederick Albert, I love the fact I can call Lelands name and he'l be the only child that answers. The Frederick and Albert are after my hubby's grandads. A lot of people when we first mentioned our choice of name turned their noses up but we threatened calling Leland Duane-Lee! :). So congratulations on your choice x

I think boys generally do not like having unique names. Girls and their mothers like unique names, not boys. Ask any boy with a unique name whether he would rather have a common name and the majority would say yes. Do your son a favor and choose a semi-common name for him! He will appreciate it much more than something unique. If you have a girl, by all means, name them something unique.

I disagree. My sons are Cayden, Zavien, Dallen and Tayne, and they all love having unique names. Cayden's name isn't very unique now but is was 10 years ago when I named him. He actually got upset when he met another boy called Cayden, he loved being the only one he knew with that name.

Your grandson is named after a city in Ontario? I'm sorry - but that's terrible. It would be equivalent to naming your child "Waterloo" or "Mississauga" .. I agree completely with the woman above who said that these names are just pretentious.. Trenton Ontario.. The nicknames of Trent, Eli and Nik are much more reasonable..

I had three boys, but the first tpassed away. He would have been 8 this year. His name was Kelvin. I also have Zerik and Zayne, and my friend's son is Deegan. We love the boys having another quality to make them unique and special. I have to admit though, if I knew how many Zaynes there were, regardless of spelling, I would have chosen something different.

I have a boy named SALEM. It took us two weeks to figure a name for him, who was "Baby Boy" in the meantime!! Salem can be pronounced in many different languages, and you can call him "Sal" for short :) He's only 6, but he LOVES his name. And no, we didn't name him after the cigarettes...in Arabic, it's pronounced "saa-lem", not "sAY-lem" .

Salem I like it. It reminds me of the tv show with the 3 witches whom were sisters Phoebe, Prue and I forgot the other one name.

When picking a name for my son, I really wanted on older Italian name but something cute & trendy that would grow with him as he gets older. What we came up with...Dominic Anthony:) It has everything we wanted in a name...tradition & strength with a hint of uniqueness:) Very seldom do we run into another Dominic that's around his age.

My son's name is Ezra King. King is a family middle name. We chose Ezra because we like biblical names, it's unusual, and we like the sound. My nephews are Amos and Nehemiah (we call him Nehi for short).
