209 Unique Baby Boy Names That 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.

No one wants a boring name. We all know a John, Jake, or Noah already. And although they are tried and true names, it’s always more exciting to come up with a unique baby boy name, one that exemplifies how special their sure-to-be-prodigious offspring will be. But thinking of unique boy names, that also fits your baby’s personality and looks, can be 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 how do you know that the unique baby boy name you’ve come up with is actually unique? Even when parents find an uncommon boy 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 138 unique baby boy names just might include the name you’ve been searching for.
