114 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, with classic boy names, while others seek out a unique baby boy’s name — one that won’t be heard ’round the playground. Some parents have a unique baby name picked out years in advance; others are still testing out uncommon baby boy names in the delivery room. Then there are those who select that unique baby boy name, the one that just feels right, only to find out that someone in their family or social circle already has the same name (How could you, Sharon!) or that it’s not as uncommon a boy name as they thought.

Luckily, the Social Security Administration publishes annual lists of the most popular names each year (dating back to the 1800s). Considering boy names like Noah, Elijah, Mason, or Logan? Your 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 unique baby 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. This list of 118 of the best unique baby boy names just might hold the boy name you’ve been searching for. Godspeed.
