at least my baby name is unique as it is a Arabic name but I'm sure in Arabic speaking countries it is probably poplar

I know many moms want to choose unique, uncommon names these days. I see a lot of moms saying they heard a name and thought it was rare, only to find out that it's quite popular!
I use this website ssa.gov/oact/babynames a lot.
It's the social security listing for every name used in each year.
This is just the top 100, but you can see on the link the top 1000 names of any given year.

I have nothing against using popular names, but I don't want anyone to have to find out after their baby is named that their choice is a lot more popular then they hoped.
Enjoy!
