Hey ladies! My husband and I are pregnant with our second child and it's a boy. I'm 27 weeks and have yet to find a name I love. We like unique names that aren't too common. Would love to hear names that are not in your typical list. Please list any names. Thank you everyone!

Consider leaving your perfect son, just as he will be born: perfect! No body modification or cosmetic surgery (circumcision) necessary! Best kept secret is that the intact (uncircumcised) infant penis is NOT dirty or prone to infections. And they are very easy to clean! Only wipe what is seen, no pulling back of skin (retraction) necessary, and if you are ever told to do so, it is not necessary and can actually cause harm, pain, and infections to your son. It is actually harder to clean a newly circumcised infant than an intact one. There is no need for special cleaning, Vaseline, and no risk of bleeding to death or infection. Circumcision is an excruciatingly painful surgery they are awake through, scream, cry, and many even go into shock (and will sleep for hours and hours afterwards because it is the only way their body knows how to cope with the pain). Tides are changing, 50% of boys in the US are intact, and getting made fun of in locker rooms is a thing of the past - a boy won't make a comment about another boy's penis, lest he be made fun of for being "gay" for looking. And considering half of the boys will have foreskins, it won't be "taboo" anymore. Circumcision can even interfere with or ruin breastfeeding (because baby is in so much pain, can't nurse, his ability to latch correctly diminishes). Consider sparing your son from this torture.

I hope that you consider thoroughly researching circumcision and leaving your boy perfect, whole, and intact! Please, please spare him from the torture, pain, and mutilation.

It seems these days the typical makes of our childhood are now the least common. My Kids pre-k and Kindergarten classes are filled with delilahs, zoeys, braydens, tristans, and Keiras but neither of my children have any Richards or Jennifers in their classes. You may find you have a family name that was common over previous years that would give your child a recognizable name but may be the only child in his whole elementary school with it. Obviously that's not the case with names like Jacob or Matthew, but my Son is currently way more likely to end up with a best friend named Paxton or Colton than come home and tell me about his new friends, Bruce and Truman.

Here are some unique name suggestions from my "boy" (we have 2 girls!) list along with friends and family's: Anders, Rooker, Drake, Kane, Malone, Dawson, Briggs, Lawson, Finn, Harrison, Pierce, Sutton, Keegan, Teage, Walker, Wyatt, Weston, Sanders, Benson, Keller, Emre (Emreson), Braxton, Graham, Bennett, Elliot, Sterling, and Gage.

**Our two girls are named Kendall Brynn and Kamdyn Blaire, so as you can probably guess, we also prefer less common names! If Kendall had been a boy, the names we had chosen were either Braxton or Briggs (Riggs is a family name!). If Kamdyn had been a boy, the names we had chosen were either Lawson or Braxton. If we have a third and it is a boy, my husband chose Keegan because it goes along with our "K" theme!

I named my boys Zachary Skylar Dean and Logan Castiel. The latter was a compromise he wanted Kato Castiel and I wanted Logan Xavier.

Victoriano. It gives you an uncommon name, and the option to your son as he grows to use something more common like Victor if he wishes. I honestly believe that no matter the name, the child should be able as he grows to choose which version he likes.

We named our son Montel. Everyone always asks where we got his name from because they had never heard it before then continue saying how much they love it. It suits him perfectly aswell. I don't think I could give any of my children common names.. I love the fact that he will be a boy everyone will remember the name and face too

I agree with the person who suggested Gideon. I've never met a Gideon, and I think it's a really great name. When we picked names for our kids we tried to find names that weren't common, but were still known enough that people would know how to say and spell them. Gideon is all of those things! Garrett is another suggestion someone else mentioned here that I can second. I like Harold as well.

I have 3 boys names are Chasetan Savage, Logan Archer,and Kodiak Orian. My sons middle name Savage is a family name after his dad the other boys names we just came up with if I had another boy his name would probably be "Nickiya Cree". I like uncommon names as well. I never heard the name chasetan 5 yrs ago but lately I have heard chase, logan I have heard that but really liked the name anyhow. Never heard the name Kodiak orian either. Makes me want to have another!
