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, with a classic boy name. Others seek out more unique baby names, hoping to land on an uncommon name that won’t be heard ’round the playground. 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 not-so-unique name (How could you, Sharon!) or that it’s not as unusual (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. Considering a boy name 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 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.

    Yes. I trust that our schools are taking precautions.
    No. We don't feel that proper precautions are in place.
    I'm not sure yet. It depends on how things progress.
