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, perusing the universe of cool and unusual baby names to find those unique boys’ names that won’t be heard ’round the playground. 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 in their family or social circle already has the same not-so-unique name (How could you, Sharon!) or that it’s not as rare (or interesting) as they thought. 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/Liams/Hudsons in his class and keep things interesting, we’ve got you covered. These 125 unique baby boy names just might include the name you’ve been searching for.
