125 Unique Baby Boy Names You Won’t Regret

The Social Security Administration has published lists of the most popular names every year since the late 1800s. These unique boy names weren't on them.

When tasked with naming their baby boy, all parents strive for a name that exemplifies how special their sure-to-be-prodigious offspring will be. For some parents, that means building on the strength of tradition and choosing a classic boy name. Others get more creative, considering rare, uncommon, and even weird baby names in hopes of finding a unique boys’ names that won’t be heard ’round the playground. But thinking of the perfect unusual name is a fine line to balance: Elon Musk and Grimes realized this when they faced criticism for naming their baby X Æ A-12, and these two Mommy influencers erupted in a feud after they both named their babies Baby. (Yes, Baby…)

But of course, even when parents find a name that they’re sure is totally original and that just feels right, they may soon discover that someone else in the family had the same genius idea (How could you, Sharon!). Every parent is looking for something a little bit different in their baby name search, but all have an incredibly big job. Baby names aren’t as easy as they sound.

Luckily, the Social Security Administration publishes annual lists of the most popular names each year dating back to the 1800s. Parents considering a boy name like Noah, Elijah, Mason, or Logan should know that their baby boy will be in good company, as those names are some of the top 10 most popular boy names. But the Social Security lists also tell us which baby boy names are uncommon. If you’re looking for original or unusual boy names — ones that will set your kid apart from the Jakes/Jacks/Bens in his class and keep things interesting, we’ve got you covered. This list of 125 unique baby boy names just might include the name you’ve been searching for.
