My name is Darcia Jane (pronounced Dar-see-ya). My parents did a great job - I love my name. My daughters names are Harper Leigh and Elizabeth Marie (this one is a family name). My son's name is Drew Mathias. We plan to have one more child, but we have no names chosen for the next one yet...

Quoting Starr:

My sons name is Kade Daniel. When his Godmother came up with it I thought she had made it up but I loved it. Now you hear a lot of Kaden or Caden but still not so many Kade's. My name is Starr so having a different name was a bonus for me. People remember you and usually don't have to ask for your name twice. Good Luck with your search.



 





My sons name is Caiden and you do NOT hear it down here in the valley.It sounds so unique.for short everyone calls my son cade.so I really enjoy the name and personally i prefer it to be unique.my names luanna and i dont hear it here either.

My 8 year olds name is Kaylie not uncommon but you can not find it spelled that way antwhere so when my second daughter was born I didn't want one to be able to find her name someplace and one not. Growing up my sister and I had that problem so I changed the spelling a little and my 4 year olds name is Rebecka.

MY son's name is Brody, it fits him - he is wild and funny, and always smiles at women/girls/ladies. My nephew's name is Jackson - wild child. And, my husbands cousin is naming her baby girl Anniston. Oh and I love Gage.

I just had a son and named him Sawyer if he had been a girl it would have been Halo. I also like Blaise for a boy or a girl.

Choosing a unique name is great. You should however consider how the entire name sounds together (first, middle and surname). My daughter is Diva Lily and my son is Raynor Stewart. Their surname also has 2 syllables. They seem to flow well.

If you do choose a unique name, whatever you do...don't tell people what it is until the baby is born. You are going to get critics saying "oh that poor kid" or worse. This could make you doubt your choice. Don't give anyone else that kind of power over YOUR child.

It's true that your child with a unique name may have to help people with the spelling for their whole life but that just means that they will stand out in someones memory.

This girl has asked others for some suggestions on unique baby names, not for you to tell her not to name HER child a certain way. Totally RUDE!

I agree with names that are too common get boring. My name is Jennifer also, my dad Jeff. I know 6 Shawns, (Sean) 4 Jennifer's and then not to mention the common names now that there are so many in one class, they are being called their whole name: Tyler, Zachary, Brody, Kylie, Kayla,Dylan, Emma and so on. My 4 year old just started Pre-school, and for once in the time that I've been involved with my kiddos going to school (6 yrs), his class has the most scattered names, which is very nice to hear for a change.

I have had 4 boys, so I searched after my 2ND. Being unique doesn't
mean you have to get crazy. Simple unique names aren't always hard to spell. I have 2 unique names that my 3RD and 4TH boys have. Kailas and Orion. I also have a niece named Kemery which are all very easy to pronounce if you know the english language...LOL They're short and unique and easy to spell. My favorite girl name is Novahlee and then Mathias is another boy name I love. I understand how hard it can be when you're looking for different names. GOOD LUCK

My daughters are Charlotte (you never hear) and Victoria( was saddened when I realized how popular it was. My son is Von... he is the fifth generation to have this name in the family!

I grew up the only Keira in my class and although no one ever spelled it correctly I loved having a 'different' name. Now my name is not so different. When my first son was born I named him Aedyn, it was supposed to be unique there is only one other Aedyn in his grade but 2 years after him all the boys were Aedyn, Hayden, Brayden .... so he turned out to be more common than I liked. I named my second son Isaac, he is the only one I know of in our community, so definatley old world (we got his from the bible which has alot of cool names) is the way to go. Our daughter was named after my great-grandmother it is very uncommon and I really hope it stays that way she is now 5 and when people hear her name they have never heard of it before and all love it. It is an acadian name that means beauty. My neice is Kalyna I absolutely LOVE that name it is Ukrainian, and I have a friend that named her daughter Talia which I also love.

I had the same problem, my name is Tracey and my husband's name is Rich. I wanted unique name for my kids and went with Shayne (boy), Devyn (girl), and Levi (boy) but then as they got older found a lot of people tried to the same thing and ended up that more kids had the same names. The exception was with Levi which I thought was the more popular of the 3.

Livain, Evangeline, Emanuel, Josiah, Cashin, Michaela, Natiska, Rhiannon, Schuyler, Real, Rejean, Etienne, Sebastien, Solange - I live in an Acadien town in Canada which is a combination of french and Irish heritage - just a look through the phone book will give you a plethora of totally different names - I love Livain (pronounced Lee-van) for a boy and Evangeline for a girl.

I really wanted a unique name for my son but realised with his surname in years to come he'l b having to spell his name out to everyone which annoys me as everyone always spells my name wrong to. At the moment Ive got to keep telling people that my sons name is Jamie but they keep calling him James and it really makes my blood boil. However that doesnt mean that I don't like unique names and I would love the name Sirus or Storm if we have a girl next but boys names would proberbly be something like Ethan or Seth nothing really unique about them lol.

And being a kid who grew up having to spell my name for everyone... I tell you it isn't the easiet, but I tortured all my kids too! I have Karli, Kassidi, Kaidyn and Kynli! They'll never have them spelled right, or have the little personalized lisence plates for their bikes, that just means we will have to be creative and make ''better'' ones!

I know a couple little girls with unique names that were really strange at first, but they ended up being fantastic names that you couldn't imagine the kids being named anything different. My daughters name is Kynli (like Kin-lee), but I know an Isley, a Hadley and I thought Maya-lynn was cute!

I like the unique names.I had thought that my children names were but not so much anymore. My daughter is Macie and my son is Hunter. Good luck!

I agree with Heather Jones, I like "classic " names. Teh unique names are becoming sopopular that they expected anymore. My sons name is David Michael Robert and we are planning on naming our new one Hannah Ruth Catherine. However the middle names are family names wich provide a lot meaning and are unique in that there are two.

Anyway, just another view that's all! But you can be unique with out crazy odd names! Good luck anyhow, I'm sure you'll pick something fitting.

My boys are Teagan and Keinan. We thought about Keaton and Keegan but we are both teachers and I knew that I wanted names that I had not said before or so many times that I could not stand any longer.

I don't know if you are looking for boy or girl names. We have some pretty unique names in our family. My name is Blythe, my daughter is Eloise, my neice is Taya and my mother is Coral. My step-son is Garren. I also know an Ahna, Elias, Sage, Zoe and Brighton.

I like names that you are not likely to have three of in their class, but are still not "way out"! Our daughters name is Robyn, and she doesn't know anyone else with that name. Our sons are called Conor and Oisin, which were fairly unique at the time but are becoming more common now, which is a bit disappointing!

My sister named her son Roysten. Her husband went on a mission to South Africa before they were married, and that's where he first heard it. But it was brought over to Africa from the British. Anyway, I have only ever met ONE other person with that name, and he was an african man in his 30's. Take advantage--it might catch on in a few years!

Also wanted to mention that growing up you never heard of "Brooke"...which is my name...I LOVED having a different name. It made me feel special, like my parents had put alot of thought into giving me my name. So, find another unique name for your next baby.....they'll appreciate it in the long run.

Hey, I like Brooklyn. My kids names are Selah (pronounced..."say-lah") and Tobias. We had a miscarriage YEARS ago and named that baby Shiloh. So, we are BIG fans of unique names that not EVERYONE either has or hears often. When our daughter was first born we got asked often to repeat her name but now we always get compliments on how beautiful her name is. Wish you luck on finding a wonderful unique name !

Yeah, I get that. I had quite a few Heathers in my classes, too. They even made a movie about it...lol. I'm with you there.

If you met a little girl named Jennifer *now*, though, that would be unique, when compared to popular names of our kids' generation. Know what I mean?

My daughters name is Brooklynn



My name is Jennifer, and my husbands name is Jeff...Our name are SOOOO common and there was always atleast 3 other Jennifers in my class, I wanted my kids to have different, and unique names....but thanks for the opinion

[deleted account]

Call me old-fashioned, but this wacky spelling trend gives me a headache. The poor children will be correcting people their entire lives. No-one will ever get it right the first time. And my oldest boy (Scott Robert) has never even met another kid named Scott. But there are 3 other Brooklyns - 2 different spellings - in his class alone.



Unique is no longer unique, is what I mean to say, I guess. My boys are Scott and Sean, and not only are they unique with their names, but how easy are they to spell? I am pregnant with my 3rd now, and the names we have on the short list are Sam and Seth.



My plain old regular name can only be spelled one way, but I have a brother (Garrett) and a sister (Sandi) who have had name issues all their lives. My sis automatically says *with an i* EVERY TIME. Now think of poor Kooper (just an example, no offense) saying *with a k*, every day for the rest of his life.



Just my humble opinion.
