well for a girl we had the name Emari picked out, it seemed pretty unique, but we are having a boy and naming him Rayden which i've also never heard. I have a cousin with the name Kanara Lorandyn, both pretty unique...get the 100,000 baby name book, it's great we read every name in there lol!

My son Is Kohen Neil named after my father and a girls name I've always loved is Maelle, pronounced My-Elle. Best of luck on teh search and remember regardless of some of the harsh comments above the most important thing is that you know the name you choose is the best choice for your child. No one usually spells my name right or calls me Michelyn after reading my name, I usually hear Michelle and I have no problem correcting them because it is who I am and I am very proud to have a name that my parents loved and yes I have heard every tire joke imaginable but the real blessing of that is that it is an ice breaker when meeting people and I've grown to love it!

I think one way to get a unique name is to make one up. When I was pregnant, before we found out the sex, we were picking names and if we had ended up having a girl, her middle name was going to be Joleen which is a combination name. The Jo was from Joan which was my grandmothers name, lee is mine and my moms middle name, and leen is also from Kathleen which was my fiances mothers name.

Hello! I have two daughters. The oldest is Zoe Lee (Lee after my dad's middle name who passed away) and Emerson Shelbi (Shelbi after her great grandmother) We call Emerson Emme (M-E) for short. Alot of people think it is a boys name, but we LOVE it as a girls name!



For a boy we like Rhys (Ree-s) and Talon. Good luck! You will know as soon as you lay eyes on your beautiful baby!

I wanted to name our child a uniqe name, but every time we mentioned the names to friends or family, the names turned out not to be as unique as we thought. My niece is Tayah, which i have also seen spelt Tajah. We ended up having a boy, and called him Matthew Ian, which turns out that there are about as many matthews around as any other name. The problem i found is when everyone wants to name their child a unique name, you either end up finding out that you name was so unique that everyone used it, or it sounds like a name you should have named a pet rather than a child.

You could always do a month name especially for a girl, like January or August (since your due then) or a day of the week like Sunday is pretty. Other girl names Piper, Paisley, Presley

Quoting Tara:

Well congratulations! I'm not a big fan of spelling names in funky ways. I think it just makes for a lot of chaos in the school years....teachers not being able to pronounce their names and such.



It may may chaos for the first little bit, but their child will thank them for it after. I was glad I didn't have to go to school with some generic name like Tiffany, or Brittany, or Sara. In the whole 12+ years I went to shool, only one teacher mis-pronounced my name and I never went to school with anyone who had the same name (and I had moved around quite a bit). However, you'll notice that there are many teachers out there that will mis-pronounce even the easiest names. So, choose... have your child go to school and live life as an individual with a name different than the rest, or choose to have your child as a repeat of everyone else.



 



I choose to be different, thanks! Also, you can still have different/unique names without choosing ones that are going to likely be mis-pronounced.

We named our daughter Shayna Ruby. Shayna means beautiful in Hebrew so translated literally her name means "beautiful gem" Which I thought was perfect!

Our son's name is Anthony Hans. Anthony means priceless in Greek.



Most of my friends' children have very unique names and here they are:



Girls:

Ilana

Quinn

Kahleyuh ~ pronounced Kal-ya

Brynn

Trinity

Karma

Khatrina

Justice



Boys:

Damek

Ryatt

Cashton

Rylan

Kason

Mason

Hogan

Zander

Keenan

The only thing that I can say is that when my husband and I were having our daughter, I wanted to have an Irish or Gaelic first name (that's my family background) and we're doing the same thing for this one too.  I have loved the name Aidan and if we have a boy that's the name.  I have seen that name used for girls lately too.  My daughter's name is Kaitlyn (there are so many ways that you can spell it).  If this baby is a girl, the name is Kassidy (again, so many ways to spell it).  Old fashion names are nice too, because they aren't used that often anymore.  My daughter's middle names are Elizabeth Irene.  Good luck with the name finding.  When you find the right name, you'll know.  It also may take seeing the baby to decide for sure.  My parents didn't know my brother's first name until right after he was born.

Wow!!! I was sharing this with my husband and he says to say:

Boy: John, James, William, Michael, Steven, Richard

Girl: Lucy, Sarah, Victoria, Alison, Lindsay

then he added since you wanted unique name ideas two unisex names can be...Frankenstein and Jabberwocky!

I think it's clear his opinion on unique names - and I know he's not the only one who feels this way - just keep this in mind as I know you want to be proud of the name you choose and it can sometimes hurt when others roll their eyes or laugh at it. It drives me crazy when my name is spelled with a "G" and it bothers me when people need to be reminded to spell Lily's name with ONE 'l' - which, I think is a simple name to spell as it is a fairly popular flower! I would think it would be extremely frustrating to correct people every single time!

Alayah, Arianna, Takara, Amaya, Kadence,  (are ones that I like and tend to sugges for girls)... and Elianna-Jade (that is what I had picked out for a girl, we then had two boys)



Silas (is the name of one of my sons), Hayden (the name of his twin brother), Jacovey, Mattias, Chylar (pronounced Shy-ler).



 



My name was quite original growing up and it was nice going to schools where people didn't have the same name as me. I wanted to try to do the same for my little guys. Also, I just tend to really enjoy original names.
