Zander, Grayson, Zain, Holden, Quentin, Elijah. Those are just few. You can google unique baby boy names and there will pop up a bunch of sites. Thats what I just did.

wow... lots of names. just want to point out, names like Thor and Odin (spelled wrong above) are gods of the vikings, and if choosing to name a child after one, it is traditional to alter it so you're not considering your child to be like a god. My friend Jason named his son Brodin, in Odin's honor. (these religions have not died out) I also saw the name Zaden up there... also spelled wrong, should be Xaiden, and he was the brother of Satan. Good names... just sayin. I wanted unique names for my boys, and I didn't see them listed above. My oldest I named after my grandfather, Sumner. It is old English and was traditionally another name for the person responsible for summoning people to church. My second son is Alistair which is also old English, meaning defender of man. I think it's so important for a name to have a meaning you can stand behind, rather than it just being cool...

My eldest is called CIARAN JOSEPH (or CJ) meaning little dark one which fittled my little boy perfectly cause he was born with loads of dark hair. The name isnt the common and the spelling certainly isnt. Also have another little boy who we named Connor cause i think it goes well with Ciaran.

My son's name is Riley Fergus. I wanted to name him Elvis but his dad wasn't having it! We thought about Vincent Riley but I decided I didn't want him to be called Vinnie (which would be inevitable). What about Deacon? Royce?Not too many of those. Presley? Can you tell I'm an Elvis fan? lol.

we found that if you research something you really really like, a movie, a book, a video game, there's all kinds of sweet names. we would have named my daughter Dodgson if she was a boy. it's lewis carroll's real last name, and my husband and i love the alice in wonderland stories. so just look into whatever you guys love. :)

I have 4 boys but my 1st I really wanted to use the name Zander Micheal but we named him after his dad. I hope this helps in the unique department. Also the name Silas Orien is one that I like too. Good luck

My son's name is Tye Jordan. It means "Chief" in Native American if it is spelled "Tyee". I didn't like any common names either and I have had that name selected for ages. I'm glad we had a boy, because a girl's name was extremely difficult for us to agree on!

When i was pregnant with my son Brodie i also had a bunch of other names picked out like Cade, Kyzer, Kyan and Broden. I also like unique names but after you have your baby you start to hear that name all the time. my oldest sons name is Donovan which means dark haired warrior. Brodie means second son.

Oh yeah, and my oldest is Hayden. I know it's getting more popular, but I live in a rural area, and he's the only one I've seen so far.

One of my best friends has a son named Thatcher, and when I was pregnant with my 2nd son, I wanted to name him Theron. I also like Remy, but alas, we went with Logan. But nothing fits my little guy better. Good luck with finding a name. It seems like it's so hard to name boys!

I chose connor declan for my boy. I know what you're dealing with, we had trouble finding a name that was unique and not common. My boyfriends name is Dusty and mine is Skyelar and we wanted unique and not straight up weird. What we did was go through international names instead of just searching through names and we got pages full of choices until we came down to connor declan. You can have that if you like it or try what we did and look through international names.

If your having a tough time finding a name you like perhaps you can check out Baby Names World http://babynamesworld.parentsconnect.com...

I use this site even though im not pregnant right now, but I use it when I am writing a new story or book and need a name that isnt common. They have a lot of good names in there. But also look in normal books that you like to read or one that you may not have though of picking up and see what the characters are named. Some times you will what you are looking for in the most unlikely place.

It was only by chance that I found the name of my son and I was looking in an old baby book not even a newer one and there is was as I was looking at other names.

My husband wanted Malakai or Damian but it was a little too Children of the Corn for me so we just went with Noe Junior after his dad... thats always a safe bet. Im a big fan of Anthony though... very strong name and lots of ways to short'n it. Already had one kid w/ it as a middle name though lol... Jackson, jade, August, Aidan...

My boy's name is Rocco. I also like Denver it sounds cool. And last week I heard the name Zen, how cool is that?! Somebody typed Titon, love that one too. I always wanted to call my first son Nero, but my husband hates it.

When I was pregnant with my 1 year old I wanted a unique name so I searched for uncommon names well I found a site that you could enter the last name and pick if you want a middle and first name chosen. It was something to do with baby name genie. we ended up choosing Layton Michael Sanderson.
