What are some unique boy names?
Share some unique boy names you like and see what names other moms suggest.
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 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.

CHANCE - as the dialogue goes in one of Jean Claude Van Damme movies..."what kind of a name is Chance?" his answer... "my Mama took one."
Malachi McKinley........will be my youngest son's first born's name. To be nicknamed "Chi". My grandfather's name was McKinley so it will have a strong meaning for us all who knew him.
Our son's name is Gunnar Scott. He's the only one in our town with that name!
My son's name is Gage. First heard it in Stephen King's Pet Sematary and knew that was the name I would use if I had a boy!
My son is named for a character in the movie "The Fifth Element" Corbin Robert Dallas. The Robert is for my husband's late grandfather. I have had a doctor even comment on his name and how cool it was.
I just named my baby boy Archer, we thought it was a little different, and really like it. The name I wanted for the longest time was Atticus-love it!
I have a Maximus Mateo
"greatest gift from god!"
Everyone loves Maximus!
My sons are Connor and Xander.
My son is named Talon. My husband is from Quebec and we wanted a name that would sound great in both French and English.
My son's name is Samson. He was my first born, somewhat named after his grandfather, Samuel. Luckily he was a big baby (almost 9 lbs) and grew into a large man. He's grown now, 6'3" and very handsome so the name fits him perfectly!
I named my daughters Chlamydia, Syphilis and Gonorrhea. I'm not sure where I heard the names - maybe my doctors office during a checkup, she was listing off some random names and I really thought those sounded pretty. :-)
I have been blessed with 3 healthy girls, but many years ago I discovered by suprise that I was pregnant with twin boys, unfortuently they had severe TTTS in utero and I lost my precious ones in my 20th week, but Had named them already a a month previously, they were Kiernan and Kynan, Strong celtic names and unique as well, still love the names to this day! and my angel boys as well!

wow, I wasn't going to post on here cause I was sure I 'd see my sons name, but i didnt so, my son's name is Leland Thomas, The "lee" is from both sides and Thomas his father's great great grandfathers name. Plus we both loved watching dog the bounty hunter when i was pregnant, and we both fell in love with it.
My son's name is Connal. It is a Scottish name meaning strong wolf. So appropriate as he is a gymnast with amazing muscles.
I do not have any boys myself but my favorite nephew in the world is named Journey. He gave his mom quite a journey to enter this world :)
My 18 month old son is Landrey. My maiden name is Landers so I wanted to keep the tradition but be a little different. I love the name Landon as well but that's a little more common so we decided to go with Landrey Patrick.
My son is Lawson James. We call him Law or Law-dog (from the movie, Tombstone). We wanted something that was strong and sounded a bit like a cowboy. We always get complements on the name.
I have four boys and a very common last name so wanted names a bit different...we have Khody Dayne, Wyatt Jackson, Damyn Russell, and Grady Maxim. They are all strong, big, amazing boys!
**Thought I would add their middle names too! :D
Some of the wonderful names of the children in my childcare home: Dakota, Kairo, Rocklin, Enzo, Brody, Landon and Cooper.
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.
My sons name is Julien. Its unique but not unusual , and we spelled it Julien instead of Julian, we liked the french spelling :)
My grandsons are Trenton Ontario, Elias Chance and Nikolas Daniel. We usually call them Trent, Eli and Nik.....
My two boys are Camden Morrison, and Jacoby Dylan..
My son's name is Evan Kayra...Kayra is of Turkish heritage and it means God's Blessing.
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" .
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.
